Things go terribly awry for a man who becomes obsessed with meeting the woman behind the voice of his car navigation system.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

A dark comedy, Twilight Zone-like thriller

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

It is unique in that it is a SOLO actor performance. The outside world exists only as voices heard, but not seen. Being that, it can be made on an extremely low budget. It’s darkly funny, thrilling and entertaining for an audience for beginning to end. It is a challanging and fun role for an actor. It’s based on a situation where millineal technology backfires in way that could possibly happen to anyone.

3. How would you describe this script in two words?

Quirky. Thrilling.

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

10 Features, 3 original TV pilots, 10 shorts.

7. What motivated you to write this screenplay?

A story I read that something similar happened. I thought it was a great premise for a story that was based on reality. I also tried to come up with something easily producable.

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

For contest purposes, trying to keep the whole story under 30 pages while keeping it entertaining, while at the same time developing the characters. Also trying to write it in such a way that only one physical actor was needed for the whole story, which was very challanging in itself.

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

I love movies! But also am passionate about baseball, Texas Hold’em and getting involved with my daughter’s school activities.

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

Keep learning about your craft and never stop. Try every means available to get your work out there, all the while just keep writing and writing. Write what you know best. Experiment with different genres, concepts, story lengths and formats. Never give up!

TV PILOT Reading of CHILDREN OF CHAOS by Kara Dueck

CHILDREN OF CHAOS TV Pilot
Written by Kara Dueck
CAST LIST:NARRATOR – Sean Ballantyne
MICHELLE – Mallory Palmer
LIRA – Kelci Stephenson
CRAIG – Hugh Ritchie
PENNY – Angelica Alejandro
TOM – Kheon Clarke
PAUL – Julian Ford
RICHARD – Peter Nelson

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Fantasy, Action, Adventure, Drama, Family

Lira, an immortal witch from a quasi-Hellenic dimension, travels to 21st century South Dakota in search of a dark magical object, which could destroy the universe. In her search, she meets Michelle, a teenage witch-hopeful, whose mother mysteriously died when she was a child. Finally having proof of magic’s existence, Michelle helps Lira evade any unwanted attention, hoping to find answers once and for all.

Get to know the writer:

What is your TV Pilot screenplay about?

It’s about friendship, loyalty, family, greed, and the quest for truth and goodness. Set against the backdrop of ancient gods and their eternal cosmic battle, worlds will collide, gods will clash, heroes will fall, and all before lunch period. When we first meet our leading ladies, Lira is a powerful being from a realm of magic, mystery, and adventure, and Michelle is a seemingly ordinary girl stuck in an ordinary world, whose biggest concern is getting through high school in one piece. A chance encounter will change their lives forever and lead them down a path that neither one could have predicted.

Why should this screenplay be made into a TV show?

It should be made into a TV show, because it’s fun, adventurous, and would be very visually and emotionally appealing to the YA audience it’s geared for. This demographic is constantly looking for something new and fresh, and this show has a combination of unique elements similar to other successful shows like Roswell and Once Upon a Time, but on a slightly darker, more mature level, which I feel would apply to the current zeitgeist given the popularity of TV content like The Vampire Diaries, The 100, and Pretty Little Liars.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Emotional and thrilling

What TV show do you keep watching over and over again?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Two years.

How many stories have you written?

Too many to count. I’ve been writing stories since I learned how to put pen to paper.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

I had a dream about my main characters and that’s where the story evolved from. I felt that the visuals my unconscious brain had imagined needed to be realized into words.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

It was difficult to find people who were willing to read my script, who knew enough about script writing and storytelling to give me good feedback.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Dancing and musical theatre. My secret wish is to write a musical one day.

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

I felt this was a pretty great story and a solid pilot, and I wanted to see if anyone else agreed. I also liked the idea of getting feedback regardless of whether your script is picked. I had nothing to lose by entering.

The Initial feedback was great. I think it helped tighten my script in some places and made me think of different ways to bring out exposition.

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

If it’s your dream, you have to go for it.
