Get to know the writer: 

1. What is your screenplay about?

Revamped Models is about several girls who get in over their heads working for a ruthless boss from hell at an elite fashion magazine where selling your soul and killing the competition is all part of the job.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Horror, Satire, Suspense

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

While some people may feel that vampire movies are trite at this point, this screenplay puts a glamorous spin on the genre like no one has ever seen.

Revamped Models has an original, intriguing, and fun idea as it introduces vampires into the youth-obsessed world of today’s modeling industry. The story has a really unique character in Angelica Eve, the head of Rogue whose empire consists of ageless vampire models and youth-enhancing beauty products. The idea definitely gives this script a really unique hook. Revamped Models also has an unconventional ending…

Even though it’s a vampire/horror satire, there’s true heart here (apart from the ones that are ripped out) and that’s definitely appreciated in a story where human nature’s authenticity could easily be brushed aside.

This supernatural satire concept mixed with timeless workplace themes has widespread appeal, film franchise or television series potential and inherent merchandising capabilities such as dolls, fashion and beauty products.

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

It can be challenging knowing what edits to make when rewriting and knowing for sure when the screenplay is finished but Revamped Models has been written, rewritten and rewritten to the point where its details are polished and its content is precisely structured.

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

I love drawing and painting and I am in the process of building a pop up shop/art gallery to travel with in order to display and sell artwork.
