Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


Hello,.

My name is Karl Archer and I'm an optioned screenwriter and film/video editor. I've also worked as a documentary film producer, but the thing that I enjoy most is the artistry and craft of screenwriting.

For the past two years, I've been enrolled in a Screenwriting MasterClass program where I feel I've honed my skills and craft---but of course, with every page I write, I am still learning and getting better at the craft.

I'm currently marketing my latest comedy called BALLBREAKER to producers. It's a female driven sports comedy.

Comedy: BALLBREAKER
Longline: A disgraced Women’s NCAA basketball coach becomes house mother to a sorority with an x-rated reputation and builds a team to beat the alpha-male fraternities in a campus-wide basketball tournament.

I've written one hour TV pilots, independent thriller/horror scripts, but I really love writing comedy. I'm currently working on a RomCom as well as a half hour TV pilot.

As far as strengths go, I'd say they are all about character and plot. Dialogue can change so many times and in so many different ways, but what I like to do is create a flawed character that needs to be fixed in some way and then put them in a situation that helps them do that.

I won't rank myself on a scale of 1 to 11 as I think those are arbitrary when it comes to judging any kind of art. It's why the Top 100 songs of all time seem to keep changing. I'll put it in terms of sports though. While I'm not a pro ball player yet (as I don't have the credentials to say I've made it to the show) I'd say I'm playing Triple-A ball and waiting for a shot to be called up. For me, it's really about continuing to work as hard as I can, seize every opportunity and continue to learn and grow as an artist and a writer. I will never have it all figured out, but it's the journey of figuring out the puzzle of the script that is half the joy of writing for me,

I'd love to write more TV pilots, more comedy features and even some biopics that I've had my eye on for some time. So much to write, so little time.

I'm not sure EXACTLY what you are looking for in terms of the right talent, but let me throw this out there as well. In my job as a film editor, I don't put my ego into my art. Film is a collaborative process and one that must be built up, torn down, and built up again by the group in order to make it better. I'm never married to my words on the page and I handle criticism and changes with optimism and an open mind. In short, I'm easy to work with, friendly, good-natured and even will crack a joke or two at times to keep things light. The creative process is one that I respect too much to throw ego into it. I believe that collaboration begins with constructive criticism, honesty and a willingness to forge ahead.

Best of luck in your search. If you are interested in contacting me or talking further, I'd be happy to chat with you about your projects.

Sincerely,

Karl Archer

I love to watch sci-fi/fantasy and dramas and I love to write fantasy above all.
2) I would say I am a classic writer mixed with a bit of modern.
3)One woman suffering from muteness, pregnancy and abuse finds a home on a ranch and truly turns a family around and finds one of her own.
4)I would rate my work at an 8. I have full confidence in my work, but there is always room for improvement.
5)I love writing fantasy and would love to explore more of that in the future.

1. I love the horror genre but tend to write dark drama, thriller, and meta-genre stuff.

2. Lean more toward the modern writer. Try to keep it lean, clean and purty. emoticon

3.A modern meta-western. An alcoholic finds the redemption he's been seeking for the last 20 years when his
goddaughter shows up on his doorstep, on the run with stolen cash.

4.8 1/2. A Fellini.

5. Would love to write a classic western as well as sci-fi.

1. Drama/Thriller/Suspense/Horror. I love them all equally,if well made. And who isn't partial to a period piece?
2. Bare Bones? Im not experienced enough to really gauge my writing skills.
3. Drama based on true events-Trapped in WW2 Germany,a biracial child must outwit a ruthless Nazi,bent on destroying him,to be reunited with his mother.
4. According to a Blacklist reviewer, all 7s, and an 8 thrown in for my crumbling ego.
5. Less Cliche. More Originality. And films with more female and minority heroes.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


Hi. I'm Kevin.
-- On IMDB I'm Kevin Foster (III).
I like independent dramas that move along as opposed to dragging like some. I love action movies that would be independent dramas if not for all the kick-ass fights, chases, and explosions. And I must have some measure of funny in any genre.
As far as what kind of writer I am... it's so tough to see from the inside. I consider myself a blue-collar, grind-it-out type of guy. No gimmicks, not much flash, just solid characters and relationships, and tight, dynamic stories. I aspire to be more like Zemeckis instead of Tarantino.
Kinda the same answer with respect to my genre. I naturally gravitate toward drama with comedy in it. But as I write different genres, I'm discovering that I use that in every genre. I have a $500,000 drama/comedy, a $40M PG Christmas fantasy, a $20M drama with supernatural action, and a $3M-$8M drama/comedy. I also got hired to to a rewrite of a $5M action/horror movie. The point here is that you can see my natural tendency to write drama/comedy even in the action and horror scripts.
I won't rate my own writing. I'll let you do that.
I can send you the PG Christmas fantasy, or the action/drama.
Thanks,
Kevin Foster

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


2) Are you a classic writer/ modern wordsmith/peculiar/bare bones/visceral?

My husband and I write together. I usually vision the story. Then we write it after setting up the notecards to build the story. The characters arc is our big thing. We look at what changes in the story, but also, and more importantly what changes in the characters. I think we both write viscerally, what feels right to us. Though, Mike, my husband tends to have great turns of phrases that tickle your funny bone.

3)got a Logline?
Three sisters in their 50’s, meet to disperse a husband’s ashes and end up dispersing 40 years of resentment and finding new love.

and
A Marine returns home after seeing his buddies killed by a woman in a Niqab and rejects everyone that doesn’t look like him. But to save his missing niece he must join forces with a hijab wearing Muslim woman in a melting pot army before doing battle with the Russian Mob.

we have more :-)

4)How would you rate your writing 1-11([sign in to see URL]'t be so hard on yourself)
Together we rate a good solid 10. We have more we can learn, but our stories resonate with everyone. The few Hollywood people who have read them tell us these are films actors will beg to be in.

5) what genre do you want to explore or write more of?
Family, and action/suspense. We have been playing with them and would like to stretch there more.

The main thing is that in the end, our stories move you to see yourself and the world, a little differently.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


I firstly have a love for films and cinema, and truly believe that if a film doesn't make you think after leaving, it hasn't done it's job.

2) I'm a Modern writer but with a passion for film noir which is reflected in my stories.
3) When a conceited businessman decides whether or not to save a woman from her attacker, his decision sets in motion alternate chains of events - one path will lead to murder and ruin, the other to a beautiful woman and redemption.
4) 7-8
5) Thrillers, especially dark psychological thrillers.
