"Finding Amelia" has been accepted into the prestigious Colortape competition in Australia. It seems fitting that the script that creates a poetic account of Amelia Earhart's life, and begins with an opening scene on the northern coast of Australia has been chosen to be included in that country's highly regarded festival and competition.
The competition will not release/post results until April 2017.
*Finding Amelia was a Finalist in Las Vegas International screenwriting Competition in July.
The story of a few wealthy Brits that race their cars around the countryside placed second in the drama category in Washington D.C. This is a "short script" and uses colorful dialogue combined with the real life adventures of the men that raced their Bentleys around the English countryside.
The Bentley Boys isn't your typical story because it involves real life characters that were wealthy enough to exploit themselves with care free abandon while speeding around the narrow and twisting roads in the English countryside.
"Soaked" and "The Bentley Boys" have been selected in the Go Independent Film Festival.
"Soaked" gives us an opportunity to see society from an unfortunate man's point of view. We are witness to Steven Muddle's series of bad timing, bad choices and just plain old bad luck. His redemption comes when he needs it the most and proves that no matter how dire someone's life might be, fate is able to slip through the cracks and give us a reward for our hardships.
"The Bentley Boys"is a short script that's based on the real life Bentley Boys that raced, partied, and lived life to the fullest. They would compete against one another in their supped up Bentleys as they raced around the English country side.
Steven Muddle is a middle aged, and very recently divorced man that is soaked in bad luck from the moment he steps outside the courthouse after his divorce. He doesn't seem to catch a break no matter where he goes, or what he does, but manages to remains hopeful despite his dire circumstances. It all comes to a head toward the end of the story when fate finally steps in and gives Steven the lucky break he so desperately needs.
What began as a poetic interpretation and then later crafted into a feature length screenplay about one of America's most beloved aviators has achieved high marks in several competitions. "Finding Amelia" is written with a unique approach to telling Amelia Earhart's story. We are witness to key moments in her life as she describes them to the one person that found her, but never told where she was.
The Bentley Boys has been chosen as an Official Selection at the Los Angeles Cinefest. The story revolves around a group of wealthy, (and raucous) Brits that roam the English countryside in their supped up Bentley's. They compete with one another to see who can reach remote locations the fastest. Their only reward is their self indulgence and often reckless behavior while driving their high revving, high dollar autos through un-paved, narrow country roads in order to have bragging rights at local bars.
The story is inspired by the real life Bentley Boys of Britain.
"Soaked" earns two places at the 2016 NOVA Film Festival:
Nominated for "Best Drama" and "Official Selection"
Steven Muddle is a newly divorced. he's frumpy, balding, and has terrible luck in just about every situation in his daily life. He remains optimistic despite being pegged as sexist, racist, a pervert, and even a robber.
We can only bare witness to Steven's frequent, and unsettling escapades that highlight some of society's colorful characters and his everyday situations that an go awry all too quickly. "Soaked" is written with the intention of creating it's own place within the Film Noir genre by giving a cynical view of life with dramatic elements that are combined with bits of highly satirical moments that make us wonder if Steven Muddle will ever a break in his unfortunate life.
