Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

It’s about a woman who wakes up on a plane at 30,000 feet and no one else is on the plane, except for one other passenger, but the underline theme is having the strength to change what we can and the serenity to accept the things we can not.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

It falls in the Horror/Drama category.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

This should be made into a movie, because it has suspense, and horror, and mixes a lot of phobias people have into one movie, being alone, fair of not being in control and the fear of flying

Heart Pounding.

My favorite song is Don’t Ask My Neighbor, I love almost any version of this song, but my favorite is by Bobby Caldwell.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

The biggest obstacle was how to end it, since I like to write without knowing the end, because I feel if I don’t know what’s going to happen next neither will the reader.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about Directing films and traveling the world.

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

I was motivated to enter, because I would be getting feedback on the first 10 pages which I think is the most critical part of a script, the make or break scenes. I was excited about the initial feedback, because it inspired me to push thru and finish the script.
