Winning Feature Screenplay – THE LAST PRISON by Richard Geiwitz

Watch the Winning AUGUST 2017 Screenplay. 

Genre: Sci-Fi, Fantasy,

Judith, known as the “Mother Creator” by her robots, faces a takeover when the robots feel they are not being treated fairly.


Narrator: Val Cole
Judith: Mandy May Cheetham
R-14: Angelica Alejandro
Reeve: Ryan Yusep
Alain: Peter Mark Raphael
Joshua: Allan Michael Brunet

Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

The story follows Judith, a robotics genius who designed and programmed robots to mine a moon of Saturn, which is uninhabitable to man. The bots are designed to think independently and problem-solve. There are three series: administrative, worker and repair. The workers begin to resent their assigned role. They want more input into running the colony. The administrators disagree, citing their assigned programs. There’s a worker’s strike, exports stop and Judith is sent to face her creations, wondering if they are now smarter than she.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

The main genre is Sci-Fi, but social and political as well.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

 This screenplay should be made into a movie because it will be an entertaining drama set in another world, while also being thought-provoking. It looks into the future of man versus machine, creator versus creation, but also takes a look at society today.

How would you describe this script in two words?

 Frighteningly possible.

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

 “Network,” the most visionary film of all time.

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

 It was written in the mid-eighties. If I recall correctly, it took about 6-8 months. My inability to land an agent put it on the shelf for a long time. I converted it into a novella, but didn’t sell it. I recently turned it back into a screenplay, updating certain technical aspects and reworking dialogue. Maybe the third time is the charm.

How many stories have you written?

I’ve written ten feature screenplays, three short scripts and two treatments. So, far, they’ve won or placed in 71 contests. There are a few other scripts from the past I might update along with new projects in the works.

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

 “Pride” – U2

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

 Technical issues. Computers, programs and robotics were different in the 1980s when this was first written. Researching the recent rewrite was fascinating. Also, creating the future as envisioned today. Of course, this is a more social issue story than scientific. So putting the Bible and Plato’s Republic into outer space was interesting.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I love Asian culture, philosophy and architecture. I’m fascinated by the Feng Shui design of ancient cities in China and Japan. I love watching movies and TV series from around the world, stories you can’t find in Hollywood.

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

It’s easy to use and actually fun, like shopping on Amazon. There are a lot of festivals to choose from. It’s easy to search for festivals and the many filters save a lot of time.

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

I’ve always liked the feedback. It really points out what needs another look. Other scripts I’ve entered haven’t won, so I was completely shocked when this one did. I had to read the email a couple extra times before I believed it.
