Following the success of previous feature '54 Days', he's developing a low budget feature, adherent to Dov Simens' philosophies on low budget productions and in the vein of The Thing, Alien and The Andromeda Strain.
The plot centres on the gruff commander of the first manned mission to Mars. Recently returned and confined to quarantine, she and her team assist the scientists tasked with processing the data and material collected on the journey. When one of the scientists abruptly and violently dies, it becomes clear that along with the astronauts, a dangerous alien microbe has returned to Earth that could spell disaster for humanity. Now our heros must stop an alien epidemic before they themselves succumb to the virus.
All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Paid - $1000, pending funding
Junior or intermediate screenwriter looking to collaborate on a feature script. Someone who is committed to pushing out pages and comfortable with feedback, collaboration, criticism and rewrites. An interest in science fiction could help but is not essential. Strengths in scenario and dialogue will sit well alongside my own skills. Prior produced work is preferred. A knowledge of Christopher Vogler's adapted hero's journey and Paul Gulino's sequence approach is a must.
