Watch the 140 Character Short Story – THE BIG ONE:
Get to know writer Kevin Wilton:
1. What is your very short story about?
This is a man’s decision to discover more himself, before he dies, by discovering what’s real in his own country.
2. What motivated you to write this story and submit it to the festival?
It is the log line for a script I have written that has been put into the first person.
3. What movie have you seen the most in your life?
Wow, good question, I have seen many films many times because I have kids who have the capacity to see a story play out, over and over and retain the capacity to be surprised but for the absolute most it would have to be Holes, the debut film by Shia LaBouf. It’s actually very good, even if it is a Disney.
4. How many scripts and stories have you written?
One published novel, three more in progress, one play, 10 feature scripts of which 9 have gone into development but none have been produced for all kinds of reasons.
5. What artists would you love to work with?
David Wenham, Nicole Kidman, John Cusack, Johhny Depp, Cate Blanchet, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon.
6. What is your passion in life?
To see a film make it into production; to sit in the cinema and hear people enjoying themselves and not know I’m there.
7. Any tips for other writers who want to write a 140 character short story?
Write it all down then look at ways of combining and rearranging words to have the same effect. To condense the meaning into a stronger and stronger drop of time.
