Film Feature Pitch: Liberty by Chris Cartusciello

LOGLINE PITCH:

ACTORTitle: Liberty

Written by: Chris Cartusciello

Type: Feature Film

Genre: History, Drama, Romance

Logline: Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous events surrounding the creation of the Statue of Liberty, a young girl and boy meet. They spend the next 20 years falling in love as an ocean, and the hatred of their families, keeps them apart. Can their love come together even as it seems the most famous symbol of freedom in the world may not?

Synopsis: Shortly after the end of the Civil War and the assassination of President Lincoln, French diplomats choose to bestow a grand gift to the American people in recognition of all they have accomplished in such a short period of existence. Sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi is charged with creating a symbol worthy of celebrating America’s independence. Reflecting on past experiences and his strong sense of national pride, Bartholdi takes the project to heart and begins work at once. His decision of an enormous statue in the fashion of a woman holding a torch aloft is met with great fanfare. Along with his niece Maryse, of whom he is sole guardian, he travels to the United States and meets with architect Richard Morris Hunt, who has been chosen to build the base on which the statue will stand. Hunt, who studied architecture in France, is the perfect man for the job. He is well respected and connected to the right people in order to be able to get things moving. The two men, even though they have similar backgrounds and interests, butt heads from the start and soon become bitter enemies. Pride and arrogance, along with strong personalities, do not make for effective business or creative partners. In the meantime, Maryse meets Hunt’s son Perry and a friendship, and budding romance, emerges. Over the next 20 years, as monetary and political strife plague the completion of the statue, Maryse and Perry hide their growing relationship. Through letters and gifts sent across an ocean, as well as secretive meetings whenever the two families are required to be together, they grow closer. When Maryse is forced to choose between an arranged marriage in France or her true love in America she starts a course of events that takes her to a new world and new adventures. With the date of the statue dedication coming closer, can Bartholdi and Hunt put aside their distaste for each other and work together towards completion and can Perry find Maryse who has disappeared in an unknown and dangerous city?

Video Pitch for Madams of Midnight Rondevu, Feature Script by John Blane

Watch Video Pitch:

Get to know writer John Blane:

1. What is your story about?

A detective crime story that involves a high end discreet brothel that is run by a pair of French twin sisters that are actually ageless vampires

2. Why should people know this story?

A very different kind of Detective story

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

film noir

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

Smokey and the Bandit.

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

It took me a month to write.

6. How many stories have you written?

Seven total

7. What motivated you to write this story?

It was a fascination about how the sex industry has its dark side, and that all of the desire that eludes from it could possibly harm you if you are not very cautious when entering this extremely tempted business.

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

Acting, which I hope to do more in the future.

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

Yes, the one thing I always tell struggling artist of any sort, is that you have to have a love for this business. Meaning the entertainment industry, because if you are not sincere about having a career in this field, it can be extremely difficult to succeed in it. There are wonderful artist out there that just give up after a sort time, and feel that they are not good enough to make it.

If I had felt that way then I would have been out of this business a log time ago that’s for sure!

The only reason I’m in this business is because I love the arts. I love what I do, and if a person has a strong desire to write stories, act, paint, or whatever their creativeness drives them to do, then I say to them by all means go fourth, and put all your heart and soul into your work.
There is no need to worry about the outcome,because that passion, or which I call creative source, or God, that pushes each and every one of us will make sure that you will indeed succeed, and that’s a fact!
