How would you describe this script in two words?

Action adventure

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

Back to the Future

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Four years

How many stories have you written?

I have completed two short stories, two novels and four screenplays.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

I produced four documentaries for Discovery Channel called Wild Destinations. In these programs, a four-man crew traveled to remote locations and shot stories about what was going on. I used this four-man team as a basis for two of my screenplays, including Port Sudan. Basically the team goes into a location, gets into a scrap and has to extricate itself. Part of this idea was used for the screenplay from which this scene came.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Since this screenplay is based on a true story, I faced obstacles in telling too much about what is really going on out there.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Think about who your characters are – where do they come from? What was their education? What formed their personality?
