Watch 140 Character Short Story: LIFE IS BUT A DREAM
Get to know writer Brian O’Flaherty:
1) What is your very short story about?
The story is about having a life altering experience, which brings about a realization; a realization that changes the narrator forever. The realization is that one’s mind creates one’s reality, which is experienced as a contrast of opposites, the meaning of which the narrator must decide.
That’s it in a nutshell.
2) What motivated you to write this story and submit it to the festival?
I’m in the process of submitting a feature screenplay to the festival, which caused me to receive emails, where I was then informed about the Twitter festival. It seemed like a fun idea.
3) What movie have you seen the most in your life?
Return of the Jedi.
4) How many scripts and stories have you written?
I am in the process of writing my first screenplay.

Shakira, James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, Aubrey Plaza, James Earl Jones, Gene Hackman, Lawrence Kasdan, Luc Besson, Marion Cotillard, and The Wachowskis.

Star Wars and Shakira.
