Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

LUCIDAE is an epic action packed romp about supernatural contact with another world. There are no space ships or robots – this is a sci-fi story that has more to do with ancient unified beliefs in Astral travel, dream walking and out of body experiences – what limits could space and time have in this kind of contact?

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Sci-Fi, Adventure, Fantasy
.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It is truly original. It is also not simply entertaining – it has many thought provoking elements.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Ground breaking.

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

Blade Runner

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

3 years

How many stories have you written?

6

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

A deep dissatisfaction with the limited imagination of sci-fi so far generally, with very few notable exceptions. But also the knowledge that this was a totally new approach that has the potential to impact heavily on a huge international audience hungry for something different.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Mainly time and financial – you have to pay your bills. Writing a screenplay on spec does not pay. So you are forced to balance it with a job that pays – this slows down progress and can be frustrating.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Loved ones. The wood where I live. Big issues like diminishing resources in an over human populated world, injustice. Cake ūüėČ

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

Find an original story. Grow your sense of empathy to understand truly natural dialogue, use characters you know/witness and adapt/enhance them. Use small details to crystallise them. Don’t agonise and rewrite the same scenes over and over and get bogged down. Move on, get it all down, take a break then go back and do an entire polish. Lots of others but hell I am on a very steep learning curve myself…
