SCREENPLAY MOVIE: MOTORIST, by Julie Thor Fryd

Summary of where we are when the scene occurs

At first, we see Ford. He´s driving along in his car. He finds a wounded animal, gets out of his car, examines the animal, writes in his notebook, and runs the animal over. Afterwards he drives over the crest of the hill, and spots two figures, in the middle of the road. Ford just manages to swerve round them. A man- VOLVO- is lying on the road, and a woman JEEP- is standing next to him.
It´s night, and we are on a road.

CAST LIST:

Narrator: Val Cole
Volvo/Voice Over: Geoff Mays
Jeep: Danielle Nicole
Ford: Manny Pacheco

The story takes place in the middle of the night, mostly on a dark road.

Before “the scene” we meet Ford driving in his car, looking for wounded animals. We also see Volvo, leaving his house and car business for the last time. He wants to commit suicide (or wants other people to kill him) Before he leaves, he puts an excessive amount of food, into his cats dish, and pats it on the head. He also puts keys in all the car ignitions. We also watch Jeep driving very fast.

Ford is a 60 year old man, who mourns over his deceased wife. He regrets, that he wasn´t able to accept the fact that she was sick and dying. To compensate, Volvo has dedicated his night vision to animals. Night after night he seeks out animals, that have been driven over, and left injured and bleeding on the road. He finishes what others could not complete.
One night he drives along in his car, and spots two figures in the middle of the road. Ford just manages to swerve round them. A man VOLVO is lying on the road, and a woman JEEP, is standing next to him. They are arguing.

Volvo is a depressed used car dealer. He´s lying in the middle of the road, hoping that someone will drive him over.
Volvo think Jeep is a lousy driver, because she didn´t hit him with her car. Jeep says, that she didn´t wanted to run him over, but actually Jeep is a dangerous motorist, who thinks she´s immortal. She does “hit and run” for a hobby
Volvo insists that Ford or Jeep runs him over, and refuses to get away from the road.
Volvo is finishing a book called “The Perfect Motorist” Therefore, now and then, he´s talking to a Dictaphone.

At last after “the scene” Ford accepts to run Volvo over. But he finds it very difficult. He keeps a log of the animals he runs over, and he´s not sure where he should list Ford. He think it would be improper if he grouped him with foxes and hedgehogs.

All three are momentarily inattentive while we hear a vehicle approaching. They are caught in the headlights of an oncoming car…

Feature Screenplay Reading – Catch the Devil by Martin Blinder

Watch the April 2016 winning feature screenplay.

CATCH THE DEVIL by Martin Blinder:

Genre: History, War, Adventure, Drama

Synopsis: A Civil War true adventure tale of three Union soldiers, the first winners of a Congressional Medal of Honor, whose audacity and bravery trumped the superior lethal technology of the Confederate South in their daring raid into the heart of Dixie.

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Danielle Nicole
EVERETT – Geoff Mays
MABEL – Scott McCulloch
VARIOUS – Hugh Ritchie

Get to know writer Martin Blinder:

Matthew Toffolo: What is your screenplay about?

Martin Blinder: A true story about how, during the American Civil War, three daring Union soldiers, a suicidal fatalist, a reckless gambler and a morose obsessive-compulsive sneak into the Confederate South well behind enemy lines and there commit many successful acts of sabotage, all the while eluding almost an entire pursuing Confederate Army, and at war’s end are awarded this nation’s first Congressional Medals of Honor for bravery, one of them, posthumously.

MT: Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

MB: So many of the action films that come to the multiplex consist of fictional and unreal characters or comic book figures who are faced with apocalyptic forces of evil. They all seem the same to me – unconvincing, loud, and ultimately boring. By contrast, Catch the Devil is the largely true story of real men who bravely place themselves in situations of real peril and who, despite conflicts between them and in their inner selves, ultimately prevail. You will care about all the people in this story on both sides of this epic fight. A motion picture is an excellent medium with which to tell this highly visual tale.

MT: How would you describe this script in two words?

MB: Character driven.

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

MB: I often cannot find the time to see the new movies as they come out (and I am including those wonderful television series), let alone find the time to again see a movie already viewed but I think I’ve seen Casablanca and Gungadin more than once.

MT: How long have you been working on this screenplay?

MB: That remains to be seen. Still working on it.

MT: How many stories have you written?

MB: Probably a dozen.

MT: What motivated you to write this screenplay?

MB: Real and attractive characters have a real, highly visual adventure that incidentally perfectly fits the Hollywood formula for a compelling film.

MT: What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

MB: Telling a complex story involving a half dozen fully developed characters in less than 200 pages.

MT: Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

MB: Unfortunately, too many things. Seems I have a short attention span.

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

MB: Unlike a book or article a screenplay has no life unless it’s performed.

MT: Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

MB: 1. Read your script aloud twice, first just the dialogue, then just the descriptions.

2. Look at every page without reading a word. There should be lots of wide space. If you see big chunks of words you’ve got some cutting to do.

3. However succinct your writing, there isn’t a paragraph in your script that would not profit from losing a sentence, and not a sentence that would not profit by dropping at least one word. I have posted on my writing desk some advice given back in medical school by my old professor of surgery:

“If in doubt, cut it out.”

Best Scene Reading – Matsqui Massacre by Mark Curtis Dunn & Pamela C Royal

Watch the April 2016 Best Scene Screenplay Winner

Matsqui Massacre by Mark Curtis Dunn & Pamela C  Royal

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Geoff Mays
TIM – Hugh Ritchie
DOLLY – Danielle Nicole
JARROD – Scott McCulloch

Genre: Horror, Thriller, Mystery

Synopsis: When a beautiful woman celebrates her 40th birthday on Halloween with a masquerade of country music artists and celebrities, the evening turns into a night of terror after two lunatic hired killers go on a rampage of lust and murder.

Get to know writer Mark Curtis Dunn:

What is your feature screenplay about?

How excessive desires can lead to catastrophic consequences.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It is an entertaining reminder of how we can let our better natures lead us wrong.

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

Excessive desires.

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

A Christmas Carol.

This is a very tight, emotionally engaging and fun screenplay. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

My partner, Pamela, has worked on it longer than I. I have worked on it for seven months.

How many stories have you written?

Dozens. I’ve lost count.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

I met my writing partner through social media. She mentioned she had a script with her original music intact. She sent it to me and we got it going.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Email problems, for one. Getting all the pages with which to put together the final draft. Polishing the format, characters, structure, and the prosody. Still finding typos.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Family. Music. Fine painting. Sculpture. The human condition and how it can be improved.

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

Success is one thing. If it happens, that’s an advantage. Appreciating what one’s got, developing a sensibility from one’s art, that can’t be taken away.
