SYNOPSIS:

A man’s life spirals out of control when he becomes obsessed with meeting the woman behind the voice of his car navigation system.

Get to know the winning writer:

1. What is your screenplay about?

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?

The original Star Wars!

5. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

About a year and a half on and off.

6. How many stories have you written?

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!

Watch the Audience FEEDBACK for the Sci-Fi Short Film “MY BUDDY”

Deadline November 30th for Fantasy/Sci-Fi Screenplay Festival (Feature, Short, TV Pilot): https://fantasyscififestival.com/

Watch the Audience FEEDBACK for MY BUDDY:

 

MY BUDDY, 24min, Canada, Drama/Future
Directed by Mark Moliterni

Through the story of a lonely old man and his android robot butler, “My Buddy” celebrates the power of movies and TV to connect us.

Director’s Statement

The first images for “My Buddy” came to mind while listening to the eponymous song at the end of Arcade Fire’s Funeral bonus disc. Recorded by Win Butler’s grandfather in the 1940s, the song’s about an anachronistic robot singing to a lost friend, which I thought was a sweet and quirky story to base a film on. And when I learned that Alvino Rey’s death served as an inspiration for Funeral, I looked to my own grandfather as inspiration for the film.

At 92 years old, Emmanuel Moliterni spends his days in a sunken recliner, half asleep with the television on as a comforting distraction. But at night, I watch as he perks up for classic movies, transported to the days when they were new. Television’s power to connect us to the outside world (and our past) is a wonderful thing, but I’m left wanting by the fact that at my grandfather’s age, that’s all a lot of people have left. So “My Buddy” is really a tribute to that-a celebration of film and television, but also a reminder that when I’m 92 years old and living in a recliner, I’ll have plenty of time for watching. In the meantime, l’m going to try to make my own life a little more like the movies we love so much. Hopefully, “My Buddy” inspires you to do the same.

BOW TO YOUR PRINCE, 7min, Canada, Fantasy/Drama
Directed by March Mercanti

SYNOPSIS:

Lerato struggles with the pressures placed upon him as he must defend his lover from an evil Prince.

CREW

Writer / Director : March Mercanti
Producer: Adam King
Co – Producer: Nicole Gatto
Cinematographer: Jesse Kellestine
Production Designer: Julia Monson
Original Score: Mike Monson

CAST

Lerato: Terry Tyler
Adisa: Kathryn Masters
Chima: Jeri Leader
Prince Kafu: Nick Stathas
Shaman: Trevor Ramai Jr.

Director’s Statement:

“Bow To Your Prince was created as my graduating thesis project out of the Toronto Film School.

Prior to writing this story, I knew that I wanted the film to have an eerie-brooding feel. This led me to write an unconventional fairytale.

I have been around a lot of sickness my entire life so I channeled the idea of someone being put under a ‘spell’ as a form of sickness. From there I built characters around this ‘sick’ individual using a metaphorical approach. One character represents the illness itself, another character represents the role of society and the others are the loved ones-the bystanders-the most fragile.

After this was in place, I found it wasn’t necessarily the sick individual I set out to explore, it was those in the presence of the illness. Being in the presence of illness allows true character to shine through…for better or for worse.”
