Interview with Eddie Upnick, Best Scene Screenplay Winner (Lonely Heroes)

WILDsound intrigued me, and I took that next step. The company can be a great asset to writers and actors.

– Eddie Upnick, on what influenced him to submit to the WILDsound Festival

Watch the Best Scene of LONELY HEARTS:

SYNOPSIS: Lonely Heroes is a complex storyline of the CIA’s top field agent. He has to stop Putin from a monstrous plot to crash world stock markets.

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Sedina Fiati
Roger – Steve Rizzo
Victoria – Erynn Brook
Mickey – Peter Nelson
Ian – Roman Spera
Jake – Jarrid Terrell

Matthew Toffolo interviews Eddie Upnick:

Matthew: What is your screenplay about?

Eddie: Lonely Heroes is a complex storyline of the CIA’s top field agent. He has to stop Putin from a monstrous plot to crash world stock markets; later he must stop Iran’s nuclear program just before it goes live; and then he and an Israeli agent must prevent an alien attack on Earth.

Matthew: Why should this script be made into a movie?

Eddie: The action packed sequences lend itself to film, so obviously, I think it would make a great film or ongoing television series.

Matthew: How long have you been writing stories?

Eddie: I have been writing since the 1970’s.

Matthew: What movie have you seen the most in your life?

Eddie: Dr. Strangelove.

Matthew: What artists would you love to work with?

Eddie: Jason Bateman would be a great lead character for Lonely Heroes.

Matthew: How many stories/screenplays have you written?

Eddie: I have written dozens of screenplays though the years, some of which were ghost written.

Matthew: Ideally, where would you like to be in 5 years?

Eddie: In five years, I’d like to be where I am now, alive and well. Perhaps with another screen credit or two.

Matthew: Describe your process; do you have a set routine, method for writing?

Eddie: Yes. I write via lined note pad in the late evening, and then type up the pages the following day.

Matthew: Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Eddie: Sports. I am a competitive person who enjoys any sport with a ball in it

Matthew: Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Eddie: My advice to anyone in a creative field with no clear path to success. NEVER GIVE UP. Keep grinding. My old college baseball coach used to say to the team; “A winner never quits, and a quitter never wins.” That expression has always stayed with me.
