Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

An out of luck carnival medium tries for one last big score on a desperate widow, and discovers his act might not be a con after all.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Drama, horror.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

A story about the final scam of a carnival con man who claims to be able to speak with the dead: who wouldn’t be intrigued?

How would you describe this script in two words?

Gravity’s Pull.

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

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

A few years.

How many stories have you written?

50 or so.

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

Moritat (Sonny Rollins)

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Always finding the time, and then the distance to read it objectively.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Not much.

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

This script had some success in various contests, but little else. After putting it aside for a year, I decided to try another draft, and wanted to get some feedback on the first scene. I enjoyed your contest, and the feedback was worth the entry fee. The first scene and its aftermath become increasingly central to this story as it unfolds, so it was important for me to see if it worked, as odd visuals are quickly introduced. And the central question of whether you want to spend more time with this character.

1st SCENE Script Reading of GOOD INTENTIONS, by Sandy Tovray Greenberg

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance

Despite Tara’s announcement to stave off dating after a nasty breakup, her girlfriend sets up an “accidental” meeting and the two fall in love, but when mishaps and secrets occur and Tara discovers the charade, she must decide whether good intentions trump lies and deception.

CAST LIST:

Narrator: Elizabeth Rose Morriss
Mindy: Pip Dwyer
Tara: Ariel Brooker
Liz: Julie Burris
Logan: Geoff Mays
Austin: Hugh Ritchie

Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

If you have intentions to do something good for someone, make sure it is truly for the right reason!

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

romantic comedy

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

We get to laugh while learning life lessons about our intentions to help people. We need to listen to their needs.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Funny poignant

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

Rain Man

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

About a year on and off, including rewrites. I also took your feedback very seriously and did another rewrite.

How many stories have you written?

Over a dozen.

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

Time to Say Good-bye

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

It was more about making sure I had the emotions and messages I wanted to impart in the story than the comedy. This was my first attempt at a romantic comedy, and I actually surprised myself at how funny I could be! Finding the right balance was a challenge.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I love music.

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

I liked the idea of the first ten pages or first scene. Those initial pages are crucial to setting the tone of the screenplay. The feedback was exceptional. I was surprised at what I had missed and after doing the rewrite, I knew I had a good solid 10 pages. I was very appreciative of that feedback that was so on target!
