Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


Hi, I'm Steve and I'm new here (but been writing for years). To answer your questions:

1) I write comedy and love to watch comedy. I've been writing more thrillers lately though as they seem to be more marketable and I have to pay the bills :^)

2) I suppose you could say I'm a classic writer, with punchy dialogue, terse action descriptions, and an erudite wit

3) Sure, mack, "What's the Big Idea?" is about a pair of junior suits who chance on a muckle of specs and jive them up as their own, but must shake a leg before a wet sock gums the works.

4) C'mon, really? 10 all the way!

5) I want to write more action films, particularly sweeping adventures, not urban shoot 'em ups.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


My name is Cordell Garrett. I live, way, way, out in the boon sticks of North Carolina, actually a little country area called Bertie County. My dream is to see my television projects on screen entertaining millions. I have even written novels that I would love to have optioned for projects. I am half blind with limited resources but a big imagination. I can type very fast and I'm looking for steady work as a screenplay writer. My ultimate goal is earn enough money so that I can relocate to the city where I can have the services I need at my house. I am strongest when it comes to science fiction, fantasy and regular dramas. I'm very weak when it comes to comedy pieces. I rate my writing at a six.

I would really like to get a chance to write a comedy. I have some comedic ideas but just don't have the confidence as I do in other areas.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


I'm a Sundance Screenwriters Lab Finalist who has received four offers to finance my project in the new year. I've won or placed in eleven major screenplay competitions, including the Motion Picture Academy’s Nicholl Fellowship, the Sundance Institute Screenwriters Lab, the American Film Institute's Outstanding Screenplay Award, the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards, the Chesterfield Film Company's Writer's Film Project, and the Eugene O’Neill National Playwrights Conference. I've also won awards in directing, including the prestigious FOCUS Award for my film The Other Side ([sign in to see URL]), and was trained as a director by Delia Salvi, one of Lee Strasberg’s most respected disciples and a member of the famed Actors Studio.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


Shawn Woods checking in. I like to watch sci-fi and fantasy but I am best at writing urban romantic comedies.
2) I am a visceral writer with realistic dialogue.
3) Two unpopular teens explore outrageous ways to propel themselves up their high school's social ladder.
4) I would say that I'm a 9.
5) I would like to write more urban and diverse dramas with occasional comedic relief.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


Please see a short resume pasted below, with loglines from some of my latest screenplays.

I'm a produced, award-winning screenwriter, published novelist, former motion picture development exec, and author of books and DVDs on screenwriting.

I have no favored genre, partly because over the years I've been parachuted into feature scripts from every genre. I allow the story concept to dictate the genre.

In the last year I've written two book adaptations, an animated feature for a Chinese studio, and a feature rewrite for a Canadian production company, all for a six figure income.

Thanks.

Synopsis

In 2020, for the first time in Muslmania, the capital of the Islamic forces, a new president was elected. Suleiman Aswad. An oil tycoon, he was a cruel and ruthless ruler.

The democratic forces crossed the desert border and faced the Islamic forces, which were ready for war. When the battle eventually began, neither side showed the other any mercy and soldiers on both sides died for lack of equipment, ineffective battle planning, and shortage of food, water and clothing. While the two armies fought, Hollywood superstar and entertainer, Barney Chaplin, was entertaining the democratic soldiers who were stationedin the desert. One night, he and his companion officers lost their way in the desert and were captured by the Islamic commando. Soldiers on both sides had begun to lose their motivation to fight and began to stage magnificent battles for media news. Aswad developed a plan whereby the captives’ fate depended on Barney’s ability to entertain everyone during his time in prison. Because of pressing public opinion to release the captives, Monro sent his strange holywood's commando force to the Islamic desert in an attempt to free the prisoners before their execution. The commando group was forced to act immediately to rescue the prisoners. Insanity was the order of the day throughout the world as the two presidents led the planet into World War III.

style: Silence of the Lambs

Genre: Psychological Fiction (Mystery / Suspense(

Log line

For the first, time in his life a police Lt. Faces "world of Absolute Evil"

This menacing story revolves around a cast of characters who exude depravity, sadism, Intriguing and hatred.

Synopsis

Set in :Westchester County, New York State, this menacing story revolves around a

cast of characters who exude depravity, sadism,Intriguing and hatred. And, to make matters worse, the unwitting victims of this adult egotism are innocent children whose only wrongdoing is that they are there.

Lieutenant Michael Holmes,a detective specializing in unsolved crimes,is investigating the case of missing child... seven year-old Isaac Menis!after a while the police found his corpse…he was murdered!!!

The investigation is complex and increasing pressure is put on the detectives to find suspects. The first candidate is identified : Joshua Solomon-the mysterious leader of a religious cult whose relationship with children raises cause for concern. However, Lt. Holmes’deputy, Wally, is not convinced that Solomon is guilty, at least not of the Isaac case.

As the investigation unravels we learn of the utter disfunctionality of Isaac’s family - his divorced mother and father and their respective new partners. But of all these rather unpleasant figures, it is his father Abraham who surpasses them all in the bitter and twisted stakes. It would be hard to imagine a character as full of resentment, anger and misogyny as this bit-part actor and model.

Another character in this hate-fuelled bunch who could have reason to want Isaac’s disappearance to remain permanent is the partner of Isaac’s mother, Gideon, a gynecologist, who sees the child as an interfering obstacle to his efforts to control and manipulates Isaac's mother?

Although we are told that this is a ‘Delving into the Darkness’, paradoxically there are some clues that allow us to understand (but not necessarily like) even the most distasteful characters in this book: Abraham was severely abused by his mother as a child, and Joshua, despite his abnormal behavior, seems to be a genuinely caring although person. Nevertheless, an ominous air pervades this book, re-enforced by sinister misinterpretations of the Old Testament and Nietzsche. No one is beyond suspicion.

Eventually a trial is held and Solomon finds himself in the dock. The trial is complex, but despite his best efforts, Solomon’sattorney’s defense is demolished at each turning. It is only at the end of the trial that the terrifying truth is exposed.

The story is told in a series of fast moving scenes that heighten the tension and carry the reader along to reach a cliff-hanging conclusion. Evil time is a plot that is gripping in its vivid portrayal of a society peopled by repulsive, self-seeking and, ultimately, psychotic characters.

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


My favorite flicks: Good Will Hunting, Gladiator, On the Waterfront, and The Blues Brothers. I don't know as it really gets any better than that--in my humble opinion.

As for me, I’m the author of two award-winning screenplays and three books. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia College-Chicago, and a J.D. from The John Marshall Law School.

Screenplays:
Not A Stranger was awarded Best Screenplay at the Golden Door International Film Festival, 2016. This project was shot in 2015 and screened at various film festivals and locations in 2016. At a Chicago screening, film critic Richard Roeper gave Not A Stranger 3 stars, and called it "the epitome of an independent film."

I have one feature at the moment--Sleeping Bears and a TV pilot, The Blue Circus, which won the GOLD MEDAL for Best Original TV Pilot from the Beverly Hills Screenplay Contest. This is a 6-hour mini-series and 4 of the 6 episodes have been written.

If you have an interest in taking a peek at either of these, let me know.

-------

Judge’s note on The Blue Circus: “This is a superb drama pilot. This takes a close look at Chicago labor and politics. It makes a compelling case that a little bit of corruption is necessary for everything to work smoothly. The characters are all likable and all of them are morally compromised to one extent or another. But no one is a real bad guy. The dialogue is great. It sounds authentic. It’s tough and often profane but there’s a great rhythm to it. This is a very exciting project. . . This is an epic depiction of urban life similar to The Wire.”

Re: In Search Of Talented Writers


Hi,

My name is Lindsay. I’m an up-and-coming screenwriter fresh off the boat from The New School. When it comes to film and TV, I tend to watch a lot of different genres. I love ‘His Girl Friday’ as much as I do ‘Fight Club’. I love ‘Gossip Girl’ as much as I do ‘Stranger Things’. Although, I’ve never been a fan of ‘Friends’ or the ‘Big Bang Theory’, so maybe I like everything except for comedy sitcoms. I’m also not good at writing that kind of material. My strong suits are neo-noir, thrillers, crimes, historical dramas, and black comedies. I’d consider myself to be a bare bones writer.

Logline

‘Viola’
Historical drama
In 1960s Italy where women were expected to enter ‘rehabilitation marriages', one woman infamously defied society by successfully prosecuting the man who kidnapped her.

I’d rate my writing as a 6. I think I have a lot to learn, but I consider myself fairly competent.
I’m interested in exploring crime, thriller, romance, and historical dramas.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
 
Lindsay C.
