US Navy Cine-Kodak is being extended into a feature screenplay so a movie of the short screenplay would be paramount in generating interest in the longer version.
The Charles Laughton version of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”.
I had a 1st draft within a week but it took two further months of constant revising before I had the present script.
The idea was born out of a conversation I had with a producer / director looking for an original twist on a well-known produced feature film.
The project’s underlying premise made it easy to write – refining the 1st draft into it’s present format was most certainly the hard part.
My family and relocating from England to France which has been a life-long ambition.
The Fan Fiction Festival was ideal for US Navy Cine-Kodak as the premise for the script occurs in a famous Meryl Streep film. The feedback helped enrich the script.
Successes in film festivals and screenplay competitions are vital for a newbee screenwriter but all that is for nothing if a screenplay writer doesn’t also work hard at promoting themselves / their work.
