Interview with Screenwriter Danica Edelbrock (SHADOW DANCE)

Matthew Toffolo: What is your screenplay about?

Danica Edelbrock: Shadow Dance is about a young woman finding her way in a fast city. She slows down to enjoy the subtle beauty of nature around her, transforming her life moving forward.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Shadow Dance is a drama.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

I believe after college many young adults struggle to find what it is they are truly passionate about, who they are and may lack the confidence to pursue their passion. They find themselves drinking and partying to fill the void until something captivates and inspires them! In this film Jules experiences nature’s beauty while being reminded of the family and friends that love and support her. She doesn’t want to waste anymore of the precious time in her life.

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Loving oneself.

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

Almost Famous by Cameron Crowe

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

I had the idea for this screenplay a few months ago and began to write it last month.


7. How many stories have you written?

I have worked in healthcare for the last 20 years so this is my first creative writing piece. I am now working on a sitcom and have written 5 episodes so far!

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

Pictures of You by The Cure

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

The biggest obstacle was overcoming my fear of writing. I never thought of myself as writer so actually putting my thoughts down to share with others was very intimidating. I first had my daughter read it and then my husband. He is an incredible writer; my biggest fan and critic. He doesn’t sugar coat anything. So far he likes all my work!

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I am passionate about my career as an exercise physiologist! I have been blessed to work with incredible people over the years, guiding them toward health and a better quality of life through exercise and yoga.

11. You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What has been your experiences working with the submission platform site?

It was very easy to use.

12. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I wrote the script and then had no idea what to do so I decided to enter it into some contests and festivals. I choose this festival because I liked the idea of getting feedback. It’s difficult for me to receive feedback but I am getting better at it as I get older, more mature and confident.

Interview with Screenwriter Bennett Weinschenk (FOR BLOOD)

Matthew Toffolo: What is your screenplay about?

Bennett Weinschenk: Well, beside the obvious rescue mission, I’d say the film is about familial love, and learning how to be vulnerable. That it’s okay to show love as a vulnerable thing; it’s not something you need to protect yourself from.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Sci-Fi/Dystopian Action I’d say; Children of Men, Logan-type films.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It’s a female-driven action film that actually shows the consequences and carnage of action while avoiding as many story clichés as it can. The real question is why hasn’t this been made yet?

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Love and Pain

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

Any of the Star Wars films; maybe Casino Royale. Maybe The Dark Knight? I don’t really keep track of these things, I just watch what feels right in the moment. Hopefully some of that tells you something about me.

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Just over a year.

7. How many stories have you written?

Five. This, another feature, two pilots, and a short film. Plus everything I did at the beginning of college and high school. This is really all I’ve ever done.

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the
most times in your life?)

“Finale” by Max Richter, from Mary, Queen of Scots. Max is a truly gifted composer (probably the most gifted, in my mind). Highly recommend.

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Jobs, other screenplays I was writing, and generally making sure that I was getting this screenplay right. Developing the world of this film was definitely a major obstacle. I had to get really in depth with it, and not much of it is on the page. But it’s something you have to know as the writer.

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Politics, unfortunately. I grew up in the DC suburbs so it kinda just seeped in. I’m also a passionate fan of the Boston Red Sox, and baseball in general.

11. You entered your screenplay via Coverfly. What has been your
experiences working with the submission platform site?

They’ve been great. Very supportive. I always look forward to feedback.

12. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings
on the initial feedback you received?

I really wanted feedback from a different corner of the festival circuit, and I was really touched that your feedback didn’t rip me to shreds. I think you always kind of expect that your feedback is gonna rip you to shreds. But I got lucky.

Interview with Screenwriter Paul Raasch (UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS)

What is your screenplay about?

My screenplay is about the outer and inner workings of a society under the grip of a police state. This specific police state takes the form of a security firm with vast power and influence called Vane Security.

The overall story focuses on three main characters whose stories interweave with each other: Rosemary Banks, Jason Fischer, and Veronica Vane.

Jason is the half-brother of Rosemary and although the two genuinely care for each other (as siblings would), the two live by significantly different lifestyles. Jason is a petty thief who is content with surviving through committing low level crimes throughout Chicago and resides in a duplex with drug dealers. Jason, however, gets a wake up call when he stumbles upon the dead body of high ranking official to Vane Security and is seen as a suspect of the murder.

Rosemary is an up and coming comedian/entertainer who is generally upbeat and likes to joke around with others; however, her jokey facade slowly peels away as unfortunate events happen to her and her loved ones as the series progresses.
Finally, Veronica is the daughter of the Superintendent Deputy of Vane Security’s Midwest headquarters. Veronica is a precocious, independent young woman who grows resentful of her family as she discovers the dark secrets of the firm and starts to long for a more normal life away from the baggage that comes with her family name.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

The genre for the series would be a hybrid of a Dystopian Drama with elements of Dark Humor throughout.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

I believe the series should be produced because of its unique take on the Dystopian genre. It focuses on a diverse set of characters that come from many different walks of life that all deal with the reality of living under a police state in different ways. Besides the engaging characters for the audience to identify with, the series has an element of mystery that will keep audiences invested throughout as stakes begin to rise and twisted secrets begin to surface.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Sardonic paranoia.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

The films I’ve seen the most are films by P.T. Anderson, the Coen brothers, and Terry Gilliam. In terms of animation, I have a soft spot of French animated films like “The Triplets of Bellville,” and Studio Ghibli films like “Princess Mononoke,” and “Howl’s Moving Castle.”

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

It took me roughly 5 months to write the Pilot script and am currently writing more episodes.

How many stories have you written?

I’ve written a handful of stories spanning from prose fiction to screenwriting. While none of my stories have been published or sold (as of yet) I’ve been working on my craft for a number of years and am slowly growing my portfolio of written works.

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life)?

One song I’ve been listening a lot to recently is “The Mercy Seat” by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. It is one of the most darkly creative pieces of music I’ve heard with genius songwriting and poetic, schizophrenic lyrics.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Most of the obstacles I’ve faced when writing my script is internal strife regarding my writing abilities as well as constant overthinking and double guessing with plot details and character motivations due to the story’s unique set-up.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Apart from writing, I am a music and film aficionado. When I’m not listening to good music or watching a good film, I greatly enjoy playing with my dog and riding my bike outside.

You entered your screenplay via Coverfly. What has been your experiences working with the submission platform site?

This was my first time using Coverfly and I found the service to be smooth and accessible.

12. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I submitted to this festival for feedback due to the affordable entry fee and their apparent care in giving well rounded feedback for the scripts submitted to them. I strongly encourage others to submit to this festival as well once they feel that their script is ready.

Interview with Screenwriter Andrew Cooper (COME ALIVE)

Matthew Toffolo: What is your screenplay about?

Andrew Cooper: A middle-aged gay couple’s attempt to rekindle their relationship turns into an absurd, hormone-fueled quest to defeat heterosexist aliens and save a new LGBTQ society.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

It’s a fast-paced adventure-comedy, with a touch of sci-fi for kicks.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

A madcap quest led by middle-age characters that’s queer through and through is something people have rarely, if ever, seen—but are ready for. Come Alive will satisfy younger and older LGBTQ audiences as well as others looking for a story off the beaten path.

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Absurd fun

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

A three-way tie: National Lampoon’s Vacation, Foul Play, and Seems Like Old Times. I watched them almost on a loop when I was a kid, so often that my parents had to make a rule that I could watch them only once a month. I grew out of it but still have a silly streak.

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

I finished drafting circa November 2019 and have been tinkering ever since.

7. How many stories have you written?

I really don’t know. I’ve published 30 or 40 prose stories but written reams more. Since I started screenwriting a couple of years ago, I’ve churned out about 15 scripts (shorts and features).

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

Possibly “A Strange Day” by The Cure. It’s full of goth-y goodness while still being uplifting.

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Life might have tripped me up once or twice, but the real obstacles lay in the writing itself. Even though I wouldn’t describe the script as a gut-buster, it is comedic, which was new to me. It required developing and trusting a different ear for dialogue. It also called for a sense of pacing that, for this story, made me squish events into an unbelievably short timeline. Mostly for chuckles, we go from weird to weirder to totally WTF in not many minutes. I also needed to write a lot of sex and sexual situations, more new-ish territory for me. Some of it is intentionally puerile, but I want some of it to be… hot. Strategies for writing hotness were definitely an obstacle. I can only hope I succeeded.

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Movies, of course! We work a lot, but my husband and I take our screen time seriously, likely playing more video games than people in our age demographic in addition to streaming lots of TV shows and movies. Our cat, about whom we are ridiculously passionate, doesn’t seem to mind. When the world is open, we also love brunching all around Los Angeles and traveling when possible, often beating our feet raw so we can take in maximum museums.

11. You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What has been your experiences working with the submission platform site?

It’s great for finding competitions and keeping my entries organized. I have also used Coverfly. Its scoring system is intriguing, but I don’t fully understand it.

12. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I went looking for a place to send Come Alive and thought (hoped) this festival would be a perfect fit. Though I’d love for many audiences to enjoy it, the story speaks mostly to LGBT audiences, who are most likely to relate to the characters, get the humor, and possibly even feel, um, titillated. The festival’s inclusion of feedback for all entries also spoke to me, as I entered new territory with this script and need(ed) professional eyes on it. I was thrilled to get feedback that responded enthusiastically to the characters, humor, and story! I felt like my venture into uncharted territory might have worked out. I am especially excited about the upcoming full reading, a prize I will cherish—and an opportunity to hear how the timing I worked on actually operates.

Matthew Toffolo: What is your screenplay about?

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Romance
Romantic Fantasy
Magical Realism
Drama

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Love Story

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

I have to say, it’s a tie between, The Philadelphia Story, You’ve Got Mail, Same Time, Next Year, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir & Local Hero. There’s an insight into my inner workings!

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

It started as an idea with nothing else Two Years. But I’ve had the idea for as long as I can remember.

7. How many stories have you written?

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

I have a playlist I’ve been cycling the last ten years. Again, with ties, they are Crazy by and All the Women in the World Goodnight Moon and Thomas Dolby’s version of I Scare Myself which you’ll recognize from the script.

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

The greatest obstacle has been that of skill and experience. I learned to rewrite with this project. How to say NO to some comments and how to ask for help when I realized I didn’t’ have the skills to move forward, especially when I agreed with the feedback I was getting.

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

C.G. Jung, Liminal Space, Huskies, Meditation, and Travel.

11. You entered your screenplay via Coverfly. What has been your experiences working with the submission platform site?

The Wrong Candidate is a political thriller/action series.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a TV series?

After the 2016 presidential election, most people would agree that political conventional wisdom was thrown out the window, especially in terms of who the nominees were.

The Wrong Candidate will give viewers a front row seat to the most bizarre and deadly presidential election in this country’s history.

Whether you use it or not, it’s important to hear critique and listen and consider it fully and ask yourself the hard questions so you can find the hard answers.

Interview with Screenwriter Kyujin Kim (KINGDOM)

 Q1. What is your Screenplay about?

A1. It is to be Fantasy-Political Film. Believe or not, Limur, who is the Main Character of the Pilot, is not the Main Character for the entire TV Show, but he is a Main Antagonist. The Story is about Main Character (son of Rauld) who will be brought to Pella as a hostage after his father is defeated and died, where he will have to endure Limur, trying to find an opportunity to rebel against him to avenge his family and kingdom.

Q2. What Genre does your Screenplay fall under?

A2. Fantasy. The story takes its place in the Fantasy Kingdom called Pella in the Fantasy World known as Kilicia.

Q3. Why should this Screenplay made into a movie?

A3. Simple, and quite personal, because I love it, and want it. I spent many years including my childhood, imaging the Kingdom, studying ancient histories to shape their world, and finally finished its Pilot. I want to share my World with others as well.

Q4. How would you describe this Script in two words?

A4. Impressive Masterpiece

Q5. What movies have you seen the most times in your life?

A5. I’ve watched Fantasy and Sci-Fi Films a lot such as Lord of the Ring, Harry Potter and Alien, but I also watched a lot of Black and White Film in order to study, especially a lot of Alfred Hithcock Film, such as Psycho…

Q6. How long have you been working on this Screenplay?

A6. Good Question. Six month. Three day to actually finish my First Draft, but I had to proofread and rewrite them a lot, which is all about Writing…

Q7. How many stories have you written?

A7. So far about Three. Kingdom, of course, but there are other Fantasy and Sci-
Fi Features I’ve been working on. They are at their Rewriting Stage, which I hope to get it done quickly as possible…

Q8. What is your Favorite Song? (Or, What song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

A8. I love listening to Film or TV Drama OST like from the Star Wars or Lord of the Ring.

Q9. What Obstacle did you face to finish this Screenplay?

A9. “Kingdom,” is supposed to be a Fantasy Screenplay about the Fantasy Kingdom in the Fantasy World. I had to not only introduce the Character and Story, but their World at the same time. I had to find a balance, which was extremely difficult for me. I had to ask several of my friend to read my Screenplay before I submitted it to your Festival to give me a Feedback on how they thought about it…

Q10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

A10. I am quiet passionate about Teaching. I am currently an English Teacher in South Korea, teaching various age of children how to write, speak, and read in English. I really want to become a successful Screenwriter one day; however, I am also very interested in teaching how to write Screenplay to College Students in the future (perhaps after retirement…)

Q11. You entered your Screenplay via Coverfly. What has been your experiences working with the submission platform site?

A11. This is not the first time, I submitted my Screenplay via Coverfly; however, at the same time, I do not have much experience with Submission Platform Site, other than Coverfly. So far, I enjoy my experience with the Coverfly, because it helps me to track my Submission easily.

Q12. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

A12. I love writing a Screenplay, especially Fantasy & Sci-Fi Screenplay, which is the reason why I decided to submit my Screenplay, “Kingdom,” on your Festival, because the Festival was specifically for the Fantasy and Sci-Fi Screenplay. I thought that if I were to submit my Fantasy Screenplay into Fantasy Specific Festival, it would be better evaluated than other Competition…
I did enjoy my initial feedback. I felt that whoever evaluated my Screenplay put many thought and consideration not only to give the feedback but also to understand the story and my decision behind everything. Thank you very much for the initial feedback on my Screenplay, “Kingdom.”
