Turn an Amazon Studios screenplay into a storyboard
using our characters and backgrounds
I am a writer/director with a wide-ranging interest in world cinema. i use my background in shooting and editing to pay rent, But ultimately i'd like to be writing/directing feature films and consulting on other people's scripts. film is life.
I knew I was in the right place when I saw 'The Art of Dramatic Writing' as recommended reading, and it was already in my lap for a re-read, having just finished re-reading 'The Innocence of the Eye', which is probably also on the list somewhere, or should be. By the time I read an amazon blog post which read 'Screenwriting is a lifestyle, not a diet' - I was just nodding my head saying 'church' haha. I'm here to share some written storytelling and to use the test movie medium as a way of testing the sharpness of my writing, directing, editing and a producing skills under pressure. I spent a few years studying photo as well and I think that will come in handy since I only have a few months to come up with some goods.
Heat, The Conversation, The Celebration, Jackie Brown, Three Colors: Blue, Boomerang, Coming to America, Children of Men, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, Badlands - just to name a very small cross-section of favorites.
