Best Scene Reading of MURDER GO ROUND, by Phillip E Hardy

 

Crime, Mystery, Thriller

Logline: When a former detective, crippled in a racially motivated shooting discovers several strange women’s photos in a family album, he begins to unravel a mystery that might prove his father was responsible for a string of unsolved murders.

Narrator: Val Cole
Roland: Gabriel Darku
Bob Reno: David Schaap
Officer Jones: Noah Casey
Otis: Neil Bennett

Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?:

Detective Joe innocenti loses his job, his girlfriend and the use of his
left arm when he is nearly killed in a racially motivated, drive by
shooting. After putting the pieces of his life back together, he returns to
his childhood home upon his father’s death. With sizable inherited wealth
and estate, Joe goes through his father things and attempts to reconcile
with his ex-girlfriend. He also discovers disturbing evidence that his
father may be tied to victims of several famous unsolved murder cases. While
examining a case called the Scarlet Letter Murders, Joe will unite with a
90-year old detective named Roland, who worked on the crime nearly sixty
years ago. Roland’s story is also explored as a subplot that begins in the
late 1950’s.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Pilot: One hour crime drama

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

This is for fans of crime drama shows such as “True Detective”, “Fargo” and
films like “LA Confidential”. If offers the perspective viewer action,
humor, irony and solid characters arcs.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Film Noir

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

The Godfather

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

The Original Draft was written in two weeks and has been revised a few times
over the past year.

How many stories have you written?

Thirty

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

Alone Again, Or by Love

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

My primary obstacles with most screenplays are creating compelling stories,
with good character arc and the requisite challenges and conflict to make
the story a page turner.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I’m a longtime musician and I’ve very passionate about playing and listening
to great music.

You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What has been your
experiences working with the submission platform site?

Film Freeway is a wonderful, user friendly hosting platform. Much easier to
use than competing script hosting websites.

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

I’d seen the name over the past several years. Wildsound offers free logline
hosting, so why wouldn’t a screenwriter take advantage of that? And the fees
for other services are reasonable. Wildsound’s feedback has been positive
and professional.
