Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


I'm Vincent Paterno, and I hope I have the "write" talent for you (nice pun, if intentional). I've loved film for many years, particularly comedy; it's also what I enjoy writing. I'm a film historian who's run the classic Hollywood site Carole & Co., [sign in to see URL], for more than 10 years.

2. I'd define myself as a classic-style writer, emulating the likes of Robert Riskin, Norman Krasna, Ben Hecht and other masters, but also influenced by more recent screenwriters such as Kirsten Smith and Nora Ephron. I have an absurdist sense to my writing as well.

3. LOGLINE: A Vegas waitress tripled in size falls for the scientist who accidentally enlarged her, sacrificing stature and stardom to save him when he's kidnapped. ("Stand Tall!")

4. My self-rating? 8 out of 11. I'm a former newspaper reporter and copy editor, so my language skills are solid. I'm still learning the ropes regarding dialogue, subtext and other subtleties of the trade.

5. Comedy, epecially romantic comedy, is my preferred genre. I enjoy blending romcoms with other genres, such as sci-fi or fantasy (as in "Stand Tall!"), but also have dabbled in thrillers, political stories and such.

This seems pretty vague. Do you have contact info or you just fishing?

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


Hello,
I’m a published novelist and optioned scriptwriter.
I am not a genre based cinema goer, regardless of genre, if the film has that special something which grabs you – in the same way that a book is a page-turner then I will be sucked into the experience.
Having said this I do tend to write science fiction, or psychological drama.
My style is highly visual, language is modern/laconic.
A logline – ‘Is it really possible for a man to walk from darkness to light?’
Nobody is an 11, though sometimes you have a moment of being 11 which then bites back with a couple of pages of 5 or 6 (then you have to re-write and re-write and re-write)!
I have a science fiction script, a psychological drama and a comedy on the [sign in to see URL] am exploring all of these.

Hi, creativity and righting action are my strong points. I'm also very good at developing realistic origins to old myths like vampires or zombies.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


1) Hi. I'm a songwriter who went to school for creative writing. Have a musical rom-com for film I've been pitching. I mostly like watching action films, but like a good comedy, drama or mystery. But my strong points have always been songwriting and comedy.

2) I'm guessing classic.

3) From the musical project: An ex-singer cleans up to join a comeback band and becomes involved with a newswoman, a priest and Vermont police tracking a woman who becomes known as "the nymphomaniac serial killer."

4) I'd give my writing an 8 and my songwriting an 8 or a 9.

5) No more musicals for me unless I move this one and someone orders a sequel. Too hard to sell and option. I have an ideas for an X-files type yarn and a drama / action story. But I'll probably end up writing comedy as that's my skill set.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


I love writing comedy and I think I prefer to watch drama. I've never really put much thought into what how often I choose one over the other. So, that's my best guestimate.

You can't leave the past behind, especially when those masterpieces of the past are far more superior to some of the work being done today. But, I like to challenge myself to find new ways of expression so that I'm not beating down the same paths. I like to write both emotionally and intellectually while finding the most direct way to say it.

I have several loglines I could pitch at a time like this. But, I'll just start with one for my comedy: When a lady is found dead in an alley, it's going to take the intuitive skills of investigators and the advanced technology of forensics to figure out what happened. Too bad our team doesn't have either.

Humble gets you nowhere. I would rate my writing at an 8. I am forever improving my craft and while I have long surpassed getting the mechanics, I know there are even greater achievements deep down getting ready to come out.

I like the thriller genre. I don't get to go there much although I am getting ready to embark on a thriller for an indie director.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


On behalf of David J Keogh:

Hi,
Thanks for the advert. You lucky people, you found me. Now deep breath in anticipation.... one two three...

My name's David J Keogh (I was David Keogh but some bugger stole my name on IMDB and anyway it sounds more posh this way).
1.) I love films that have great characters, well written females but also (and this is key) where even the smallest characters matter. Planes Trains and Automobiles, Aliens, Braveheart... they all make it into my top ten (which actually contains about a hundred films). I hate Gods Of Egypt with a passion. Poor dialogue, awful acting and so much CGI I couldn't see anything other than blur of computer graphics. Yuck.
2.) I have an eclectic writing style - I am currently writing a Sunday evening TV show that's going to be pitched by a producer to Lionsgate shortly, about a group of old ladies that walk their dogs together (Its a lot funnier than that sounds - image Old Ladies being horrendously inappropriate - at least as inappropriate as you can be for an older audience.).
But my award winning screenplay, Cadeby is historical drama about a small village being attacked by Vikings... And I've also written an award winning screenplay called Think Forward (longline below) a horror film and short film about ADHD being made later this year. Add to that a few episodes of a radio dram starring Game Of Thrones start Julian Glover (called Endurance) where I wrote two episodes and Starburst magazine gave it 9/10!.
My writing is character based, dark and real - I like exploring the darker side of people and for me, every character has shades of light and dark and I love exploring that. The more diverse characters the better - the hero of my horror film is a transexual man, for example.
I think drama is my thing - human interactions and how people react when backs are up against the wall, and how most people are not Arnold Schwarzenegger (Please pretend that's spelt correctly) and can't simply kill everyone to get out of a mess. I also like the darker endings to films... It's good to throw a grenade at the audience. Not a real one, obviously, that would be hugely inappropriate and probably put off cinema goers in the long run.
3.) Log line... here's the one for Think Forward.
"A man with terminal cancer, an ex-army reverend and a homeless teenage girl, become unlikely allies when they stumble across some drug money. But they soon discover a local Russian Crime Lord wants the money and the girl back - and will go to extreme lengths to get it."
4.) Well eleven obviously. Hang on you'll think I'm cocky if I write that. Okay, 10.5. Rounded up. I have written the odd six or seven - but that was when I used crayon and couldn't hold it properly. I was five. let's not go there, I'm still upset by it.

5. ) For me drama. happy with thrillers and historical stuff too, but I like them to be dramatic and often hard to watch. people falling apart of having their lives ruined and watching how they cope. I'm nice really, but I put my characters through hell. If they could come to life, they would all want to kill me. Who can blame them?

I hope this gives you what you need! I look forward to hearing from you. Hang on, is that you outside chucking pebbles at my window? Oi!
