Laszlo Tamasfi – March 2017 BEST SCENE Screenplay Winner

Winning Screenplay – THE INTERVIEW
Written by Laszlo TamasfiCAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Val Cole
AGENT – Dan Cristofori
SARAH – Jane Hailes

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Thriller, Horror

When a mysterious black box haunts a young couple they take it to a supernatural expert. With the help a strange boy they examine each item inside the box, each item having a more haunting story than the last.
Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

‘Exiles’ is a feature length horror anthology. It’s about a séance held in an oddities museum, and the strange objects that the medium examines. In the case of ‘The Interview’ –the segment performed- this object is a dog collar.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Horror/Supernatural

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It would make a really interesting, strange horror movie. I like the idea of turning genre tropes on their head and playing with audience expectations. And it could be made on a low budget!

How would you describe this script in two words?

Strange, weird

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

The Fly (1986)
It was the very first horror movie that I saw as a child (I think I was about nine) and it absolutely blew my mind. When I rediscovered it as an adult it managed to blow my mind all over again: it’s a masterpiece, and I watch it quite frequently.

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

The short films that make up the body of the anthology were written out of order, over the course of three years.

How many stories have you written?

Although ‘Exiles’ is only my second feature length movie script, I also write comic books. I’ve been publishing my flash fiction webcomic since 2014 (www.observatorycomics.com), which at this point is a library of about sixty or so short stories. I also have a horror miniseries coming out the end of March from American Gothic Press (the comic publishing imprint of Famous Monsters of Filmland) called ‘Invisible Hands’, which I’m very proud of!

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

I’m a HUGE Nine Inch Nails fan! I couldn’t pick just one song, but I’ve definitely listened to more NIN than any other music in my life…. combined.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Honestly, it was nothing but joy to write. I had no deadlines and I did it on my own terms. It was one of the best writing experiences of my life.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Nine Inch Nails, horror comics, animals, and LGBTQ+ equality.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I was really excited to see actors perform a table read of my script! I thought this would be very useful to gauge how well the story works. I also felt that the initial feedback was encouraging and insightful.

Dale Baker and Herschel Medlin – March 2017 BEST SCENE Screenplay Winner

Winning Screenplay – TURN THE TABLES
Written by Dale Baker and Herschel MedlinCAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Frances Townend
EMCEE – Peter Mark Raphael
CARL – Jonah Akler-Silliman
JOE – Christopher Huron
HENRY – Charles Gordon

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance

Music, turntables, big hair, brawls, girls, and revenge are just a few words to describe this story of Generation X. Turn the Tables is the bare-knuckle yet hilarious flashback tale of love lost, again and again, like the scratches on a 12″ vinyl record.


Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

High school mobile DJ’s Travis and Carl set their sights on the DJ World Championship, while heartache, complicated home lives, and a rival DJ crew are all hell-bent on their destruction.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Drama/Coming of Age

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

Music is enjoyed by nearly everyone in the world. Nearly all your memories from your life have a soundtrack of the era attached to them. This film would show the background on how that soundtrack is delivered while keeping non DJ enthusiasts entertained.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Generation X.

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

Aliens (1986)/Can’t Buy Me Love (1987)

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Part time, off and on for several years.

How many stories have you written?

Six. (Not just screenplays)

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

ACDC-Back in Black
Van Halen – Unchained

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Receiving feedback and making changes to the script. It is constantly under construction. With co-writers, many times it is a struggle to come to a consensus on how a scene will play out. Many hours went into these brainstorming sessions.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Camping. Shooting guns.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

The feedback that we received was very insightful and it let us know that we still had a lot of work to do.
