CRIME CYCLE
Written by Donald R. Brown

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Crime, Thriller, Horror

A seemingly all-American family regularly rent out their guest home as a game to satisfy their urge to kill, but when their most recent tenants arrive they have a new set of plans in store for the sadistic bunch.

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Michelle Alexander
MADELINE – Katelyn Varadi
ABIGAIL – Julie C. Sheppard
NATHANIEL – Gabriel Darku
JOSEPH – Rikki Wright
NEWS ANCHOR – Sandy Kellerman

Get to know the winning writer:

What is your screenplay about?

Crime Cycle is about a seemingly perfect All-American family that regularly rents out their guest home as a game to satisfy their urge to kill.

What genres does your screenplay under?

It’s a thriller/horror film.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

Because it captures the essence of race relations in our country today. It’s thought provoking. It’ll help people realize how close we really are to finding ourselves in a reality similar to the one in my script.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Overwhelmingly realistic

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

The Wizard of Oz

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

4 months

How many stories have you written?

9

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

Hollywood. I wanted to write a script that demanded the attention of everyone from studio heads to agents and script readers.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Trying to find an end to enhancing the script. I’m a perfectionist, but at the same time I know there’s no such thing as the perfect screenplay. Struggling with that dynamic is always tough.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Reading. Movies. Anything that keeps my mind occupied. I try to have a real zest for life.

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

Persistence is crucial. You’ll probably fail over 100 times before you even get your first taste of success. Always be writing something.

Best Scene from THE ACCIDENTAL ANGEL Screenplay by Oren Weitz

Best Scene from THE ACCIDENTAL ANGEL Screenplay

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Hugh Ritchie
DANIEL – Benjamin Camenzuli
RIONA – Cass Van Wyck
MOLLY – Becky Shrimpton

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Action

Daniel is about to learn the truth about his childhood, and find the strength to grow back his wings. All but to realize he was predestined to save the world from a new world war, and to reveal some even darker truths about himself.

Get to know the winning writer:

What is your screenplay about?

An 18 year old boy realizes he has the ability to grow back his angel wings and that his destiny is to prevent the next world war, but by doing so he will have to make some sacrifices.

What genres does your screenplay under?

It’s a drama with an action and fantasy angle.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It’s a coming of age story with a twist. The blending of intimate moments, suspense brought on by the global scale attacks and fantasy creates a thought provoking story. Audiences will be left contemplating and talking about what they just saw long after they’ve left the theater.

How would you describe this script in two words?

A bitter foretelling of humankind’s fate.

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

Princess Bride

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Approximately one year.

How many stories have you written?

Three completed scripts and a fourth on its way.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

The spark came from a single scene I had in my mind, the scene in which the antagonist slays the protagonist’s father. That single scene alongside the rise in terrorism on a global scale served as what motivated me back in November 2014 to write this story.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Keeping a good balance between the social-political issues and the coming of age story. And, also, maintaining a balance between the realistic and fantastic motifs.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Photography

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

Always take a break from the story and step away from it, forget about it for a while.
