Feature Screenplay – LUCIDAE by Jacqueline Marett

Watch the September 2016 Winning Feature Screenplay

LUCIDAE
Written by Jacqueline Marett

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Val Cole
IMOGEN – Lauren Toffan
AZE-URE – Katelyn Vanier
SAM/WILSON – Mandy Magnan
NAVE-URE – Devin Upham
GERARD – Scott Beaudin
VARIOUS – Neil Kulin

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…

Feature Screenplay – FOR ALL MANKIND by Matthew O’Connell

Watch the August 2016 Winning Fantasy/Sci-FI Screenplay

FOR ALL MANKIND ¬†by Matthew O’Connell

Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

In this high concept, atomic-era, sci-fi adventure, a brilliant WWII veteran and his determined daughter lead a team of mercenaries across the globe in a race to recover a mysterious, supernatural artifact with the power to permanently alter the future of humanity.

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Holly Sarchfield
ARTHUR – Peter Nelson
PRITCHETT – Kris Hagen
MARY – Elizabeth Griffin
BLAZANOV/COLIN – Geoff Mays
IVANA – Dorian Kolinas

Get to know the winning writer:

What is your screenplay about?

For All Mankind follows a brilliant, British WWII veteran and his daughter during the height of the Cold War as they attempt to solve an ancient, supernatural mystery. They recruit an international team of mercenaries to travel to the ruins of Maya to recover a powerful artifact before their Russian nemesis can claim it.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

This movie was conceived as a large scale, big-screen adventure. It’s a classic action/adventure that mixes in plenty of levity, original sci-fi elements, and surprising story turns. It captures the spirit of films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, King Kong, Stargate, Jurassic Park, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Astronomic adventure.

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

Back to the Future.

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

I’ve been working on this for a couple years. It’s been through a lot of drafts!

How many stories have you written?

From shorts to features, probably dozens. For polished, marketable work, I have a few award-winning features and a couple of pilots. There’s more info on those on my site: http://www.matthewgoconnell.com

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

I wanted to write something that I would get excited about seeing in the theater. I wanted it to be a big, fun, exciting movie that was also intelligent and emotional. I also wanted to challenge myself to write something big, since most of my work is more contained.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

The first draft was over 160 pages and included a lot more mythology and locations and set pieces. I did a lot of research on the ancient civilizations mentioned in the script in order to make the mythology real and organic, and a lot more research on celestial and geographic events to make sure this story had a real, historical foundation. But I got consistent feedback that the deeper science and mythology were slowing the story down, so I had to cut a lot of it out. Maybe it’ll make the sequel!

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I have also produced and shot movies, so anything relevant to film/TV production is of interest to me. I’m interested in technology too, and write for a technology publishing company.

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

The affordable entry rate and quick turnaround were appealing. But more than that, I appreciate how the festival supports a wide range of written work, including fan fiction, shorts, and more. It’s great to see that. And everyone involved has been genuinely interested in making the work better and increasing its exposure.

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

The hardest part of writing is finishing the first draft. If you can do that, you can do the rest.
