Exhilarating Adventure.

VIDEO PITCH for Caught Up (feature script), by Autumn L. Brown

Watch Video Pitch: CAUGHT UP

Get to know writer Autumn L. Brown:

1. What is your story about?

“Caught Up,” is a story about a famous rapper name “Rich Swag” whose life is altered, when his wife and daughter are abducted. He is man who took life for granted, and wanted for nothing, and took his wife, and daughter granted. Once his family is kidnapped, he is faced with the harsh reality, that it happened because of him. He is forced to juggle his plight, with his career. He still has to maintain “business as usual” despite the fact that he is terrified for his spouse, and daughter.

2. Why should people know this story?

Peoples should know aboutthis story, because it exposing the real reality, about the current culture through the eyes of my main character “Rich Swagg.” Rap music is very profitable, and popular, but no one really talks about the negative nature of the lifestyle. “Caught Up” is not just a story, about restoration, overcoming adversity, and forgiveness, it is also a cautionary tale about what happens when you lose yourself, and identity to fortune, and fame. It proves once again, that there is more to life than money, because at the end of the day it can’t buy you happiness, or piece of mind.

3. This story has a lot going for it. How would you describe this story in two words?

Restoration, and for forgiveness.

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

The Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith. I can relate to that story with regards to perseverance. It is a human story of what it means to have hope in a hopeless situation, and be triumphant through adversity.

5. How long have you been working on this story?

I worked on about three months. I was compelled to write the script after hearing numerous disturbing stories about rappers, that were committing crimes against women. The violence in the lyrics has gone way too far, but record companies unfortunately do not care, because they make billions of dollars off the violent, and misogynistic lyrics.

6. How many stories have you written?

I have written about 13 finished scripts, but I have finally learned there are no shortcuts, and that it is imperative to take grammar, and mechanics seriously, because when you don’t, the reader won’t be able to get the story write. I believe that I have gotten better, with each script that I have written.

7. What motivated you to write this story?

People should know. about this story, because as alluring, and seductive as the world of hip hop may seem there is a lot of darkness, that comes to light via scene, story, and dialogue about that “glamorous world and lifestyle. The Rap culture today is more violent than it has ever been before, and we as a society, we downplay all the violence, and misogyny that Hip Hop generally represents. This story shows how one mans journey helps him to realize that his lyrics, and his lifestyle hurt the people that he claimed to love the most. It forces him to re-evaluate what his music represents, and the consequences of that.

8. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I am ardent, about helping others, by being of service, and giving back when I can. I am passionate about music, which is why I have been in the music business over twenty years. I care a lot about having integrity, being kind to others, and being compassionate. I am an advocate for a more non- violent world.

9. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

The first advice is to do research on the subject matter, and fact check. If it’s a period piece, make sure that anything that is written is within that time period. It is very important to take editing serious, and “trim that fat” off of any dialogue, or scenes that don’t move the story forward. Make sure there is a definitive beginning, middle, and end it terms of foundation. Make sure to answer any lingering questions, about the main, and supporting characters. Know what your story is about, and what your main character wants. Don’t write for yourself, write with a purpose, and write for the masses. Write a script that is both entertaining, inspiring, and relatable. The last bit of advice, be thorough on proper format, grammar, and spelling.
