http://www.wildsoundfestival.com/wildsound_tv_screenplay_contest_festival_review.html

Q&A with the writer:

1. What is your TV PILOT about?

Up Country Motors is “Cheers Opens A Car Dealership” with a smart, tough New York City Manager who takes over a Vermont Car Dealership run by a living breathing blond joke.

2. Why should this script be made into a television show?

People have this fear about buying a new car. What happens behind the scenes in real transactions makes for humorous entertainment. It’s also a funny show about a big city success guy who has massive problems trying to fit into an environment he could never imagine.

3. What is your all-time favorite TV show?

It’s a toss up between great cop shows or classic sitcoms like “Newhart”.

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

There are two movies that I watch whenever they’re on. “Tombstone” as the best western ever and “A Christmas Story” just because.

5. What artists would you love to work with?

I would love to have been able to spend 10 minutes working with Robin Williams without any script. Demi Moore, Jon Bon Jovi, Mike Myers would be dreams to work with. For this pilot, I could cast actual people that worked for me in real car dealerships. Seriously, I think Jack could be played by the guy that plays Neal Caffrey on “WHITE COLLAR ” and his foil Aimee played by Penny from “The Big Bang Theory”.

6. How many stories/screenplays have you written?

I’m also working on a pilot called “Hook Line and Sinker”. It’s “Tool Time goes fishing,” where a Shakespearean trained actor who can’t find work gets a call from his agent to take over as host of a weekly fishing show.

7. Ideally, where would you like to be in 5 years?

I would like to be at a level where I could discover the next wave of talented writers.

8. Describe your process; do you have a set routine, method for writing?

Usually, an idea comes when I’m nowhere near my computer. Now I text ideas and then read them the next morning. If I’m still excited about them, I’ll work until I can complete the story.

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

I love history. I enjoy being places where something special happened and then I try and research the back story.

10. What influenced you to enter the WILDsound Script Contest?

It was recommended to me, but the real influence was watching the readings and seeing the comments of those who went through the process.

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

Take advice. Seek criticism. It doesn’t mean you change based on what others think, but you should see your work the way others do. After all, that’s who we write for.
