Watch BEST SCENE READING OF CONTINENTALIS, BY AURÈLE N’DJA

Genre: Sci-Fi, Thriller

Benjamin Monroe, eager to prove his father innocent of a crime he did not commit; goes back to his hometown only to find himself caught in the same dirty deeds his father is accused to. It’s Jumper meets Logan’s Run.

CAST LIST:

Narrator: Elizabeth Rose Morriss
Benjamin: Hugh Ritchie
Graham: Geoff Mays

Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

​The story is set up in a post-apocalyptic drought ridden world; where a man who’s determined to prove his father innocent of a crime he didn’t commit finds himself involved in the very same dirty deeds his father is accused of.​

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

​It’s a sci fi thriller feature screenplay.​

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

​I believe the story offers a good entertainment. This screenplay is the first installment of a saga and I think that such a franchise would be welcome by the audience. It treats about teleportation, water resources; and on a human perspective, about trust, love, devotion, self-confidence, betrayal and faith.​

How would you describe this script in two words?

​New world.​

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

​Probably Die Hard with a Vengeance.​

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

​For the record, I first wrote Continentalis as a novel. It took me two years to build this world in my mind, then on the paper. After publishing the novel, I felt I needed to “see” it, I wanted people to really see what I see in my head. So, I decided to write the screenplay out from the book, and it took me around 6 months to do so. Such exercise is very constructive and exciting, trying to fold a 300-page story into a 100-page screenplay; I learned a lot.​

How many stories have you written?

​Couple of novels and few screenplays in different genres: romantic drama, sci fi, action, thriller, fantastic, horror.​

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

​It really depends on the period, if I’m writing or not, how do I feel, etc. From time to time I find one song I really like and I can listen to it 12 hours non-stop. For example, the song I’ve been listening a lot while writing this story is Medicine by The 1975.​

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

​​I faced three major obstacles during the writing:
I’m French, and not being a native English speaker appeared to be quite challenging in finding the right words to make the dialogues feel natural and smooth,

This screenplay being an adaptation, it was heart-breaking to cut some scenes I enjoyed writing in the book but were not crucial in the film. The difficulty was to keep certain coherence in adjusting the story to fit a reasonable screen time,

Being a sci fi story, it’s a challenge to describe sci fi elements (e.g. technology) in a screenplay so they can be understood just looking at it, rather than explaining their functioning in a book paragraph.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

​I like video games but I can’t find anymore the time to play between my job and the writing, which became a real passion through these past years.​

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

​I think I came across this festival by chance. I submitted the logline for this screenplay with no big expectations and found myself very surprised when it was elected logline of the day in April. The feedback I received was positive with constructive recommendations that I’m going to look into to strengthen the craft of the story. I think that’s a huge opportunity offered to authors to get such exposure on the industry and the market. Thanks for giving me that chance!
