Get to know the writer:
What is your screenplay about?
A down-on-his-luck journalist and his buddies head to Napa Valley for a Halloween celebration and end up staying in an inn run by seductive witches. When the valley is attacked by an evil sorceress, the boys team up with the witches and employ their paintball skills to help defeat the demons.
What genres does your screenplay fall under?
Horror / Comedy / Fantasy
Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?
The Wick Inn is a comedy/horror film that combines “Sideways” and “Charmed” with a touch of “Rocky Horror”. Throw in the paintball elements in the final battle and you have a fun and thrilling film that will appeal to the broadest audience.
How would you describe this script in two words?
What movie have you seen the most times in your life?
Probably “A Christmas Carol”, as I watch it (in various versions) about a half a dozen times every year during the holidays!
How long have you been working on this screenplay?
About a year and a half.
How many stories have you written?
What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)
I am a big Beatles fan. I would have to say it would be one of the songs on the Sergeant Pepper’s album.
9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?
Researching paintball. I am not a player, so I watched a lot of video of paintball tournaments and interviewed friends who are avid players.
Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?
My wife and I founded Rosemary Farm Sanctuary where we rescue horses in need.
You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What has been your experiences working with the submission platform site?
FilmFreeway is the best platform of its kind. The dashboard is so organized and easy to use. I can easily keep track of all my submissions and watchlist all the festivals in which I have an interest.
What influenced you to enter the f.estival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?
I found you on FilmFreeway and your description really sounded like a good fit for my film. I was thrilled with the feedback. I could tell the reader really read my script and took time to evaluate it. His insight was a great help in my rewrites.
