Reviews from fans:
Reading 'SECRETS KEPT' the script, I'm enthralled in the love story of William and Cass with its gripping descriptive and the reality based scenes you have created. In Act 1, I'm frozen in horror. In Act 2, I'm in a conundrum of plotting to kill or forgive Eric for his butchery. In Act 3, my eyes are red from crying when William and Cass reunite that I found such elation I've yet to have in my life. I couldn't believe that a script could lift me up so high and inspire me to believe that I someday can meet a man like William. This is my excuse to write to you. I have a question I wanted to ask Chau Van Truong. If you're truly him, please tell me that you're in-love when you wrote 'SECRETS KEPT' the script. It's wonderfully detail from a woman's insight and perspective, not a man. This script is better than Spark's, Notebook. I know people in the industry and I will help get this on the screen because the audiences worldwide need to experience the romance of William and Cass in 'SECRETS KEPT' the script. Thank you. Thank you very much from a woman that found her heart reading your story.
I'm so interested in playing JOSEPHINE MASTER I can't wait to audition?
Please keep me posted when casting begins. I also can't wait to read A
KILLING STAR...I believe the character you mentioned me playing last
night was "Venus Jenkins" a rap star with an "untimely death"...I've
definitely rapped in the past and can still do it today given the
chance..please let me know when casting begins for this as well.
I'm an actress who is looking to be a part of something great, and
something with substance...the characters in your script/movie have
Let's make history together and bring this to the big screen.
Hope this isn't a question that you're tired of but how do I become a character in your movies? Do you do lots of audition? I'm fresh out of college and don't know what I want to do in life. I starred in an indie before but it was stopped due to lack of funds. It was a fun experience and I'm thinking of trying again. What do you think?
I read both version of SECRETS KEPT. I like the original one better. The story is more solid and romantic. The dialogues are more engaging and real. The theme is more universal and the love more alive. I hope this help you choose the right one to make into a film.
I read your script via the internet, amazing work. I'm definitely
interested in auditioning, please keep me updated on when auditions will
be. Thank you!
Thanks for letting me see the coverage on SECRETS KEPT. Whoever wrote it is a total idiot. The plot is great and believable. The dialogues are romantic and realistic. The industry is looking for movies that will make them money and SECRETS KEPT will make them money. If this nutcase doesn't see it by the positive reviews of your script, you should get rid of them. Ever since the writer strike started in the entertainment industry, you should hold on the rein for a great ride to success Chau. I will send it to my people for coverage worthy of the story. You are going to have to make changes but not to the story. Get a great director and you got a vision of gold.
I hope the movies are as good as the scripts. THE NAISA MAFIA has very complex, enigmatic, and charismatic characters in there and it's going to be hard to cast for these roles. My cousin is a casting director so hit me up and it'll be a win-win situation for the both of us.
I wish my man speak to me like William speaks to Cass in SECRETS KEPT.
I wish my girl waits for me like Cass waits for William.
Being a great author/filmmaker/creator/visionary is the ability to connect with your audience and my man you do that very well. BE PROUD OF YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
Response to TANESHA from KR:
I understand your points, but I have seen MANY,
MANY Black Films where they constantly and shamlessly
put down White People, yet I don't see White People
writing in to get the Screenwriter to change the Script.
We know it is only a MOVIE and not meant as a True
representation of EVERYONE from that Race, or Sexual
Orientation, or whatever.
I used to be a Waiter in Malibu and I can tell you the MANY
MANY TIMES I waited on African Americans and they
harassed me, just because I was White.
And they came into my restaurant assuming "that because
I was White, I had something against them", and everything
they did was based on that Stereotype.
Racism is a terrible thing, but "searching for racism in
everything in life", to me, is even WORSE.
African Americans are just a Racist, if not MORE, than
White People or anyone else.
No group of people spend more time "playing the race
card than African Americans".
Yet, oddly enough, they think it is ok and have
guilt or conscience at all, about furthering racist
sterotypes, just as long, as the people they are insulting
are not black.
Just my thoughts.
Take Care, KR
I'm sorry about jumping to conclusion without reading A KILLING STAR fully. Great plot, story, and a hell of an ending. I love Chance. You should play Chance.
It's ok. A lot of Black people read it and I was surprise that it would offend you.
As an African-American, I take offense on your stereotyping. We do tip. Some Black women are not fat, loud, or abuse their children publicly. The only positive image for African-American in your script, A Killing Star, is Venus Jenkin. I sure hope that this movie is not made the way it is.
I write what I see and how I perceive what I see. You take offense to my script but you don't deny that it's well represented. I would not dignify my script to you or anyone else. The dialogues I inked are as real as the dialogues I had heard. Unfortunately, my African-American friend made me corrected some of the dialogues because she says it doesn't reflect today's Ebonics. I hope you read it as a fictional piece of art, not a biographical memoir of your culture. It's entertainment.
Your language in A KILLING STAR is street raw. DON'T YOU FEAR REPRISAL?
You write the most romantic story I've ever read. Thanks for pointing the direction to your books and scripts.
WOW!, what an amazing story. I can't believe how this story just grabs you right from the start.
There are so many different feelings that you go through. The further in to the movie, the more
romantic it becomes, especially when William is telling Josephine about how he met Cass, and their
love for each other. Oh, to have a love so strong as theirs.
I was happy to find out who had killed Cass and that she visited him, which scared him LOL,
This is truly a remarkable movie. You have put this together brilliantly. You could picture every scene in your mind,
It was as if I was there watching it in person. This is definitly a wonderful movie, and deserves an award.
Hollywood should start rolling the red carpet out for you. Your stories are well plotted, structurally sound, and the dialogues are reality based. I am inspired and intrigued at your talent and I, and the world, hunger for more.
