COMEDY Best Scene of OPPOSITES, by Akil Goin & Kareem Richardson

NARRATOR: Becky Shrimpton
Marilyn: Salma Dharsee
Stephanie: Mahtab Sabet
Zoe: Kate Varadi
Waiter: Allan Brunet
Dave: Merlin Simard
Ben: Scott Beaudin

Get to know the writer:

1. What is your screenplay about?

Opposites is the story of a tough-as-nails careerwoman finding something she was missing in a laid back coffee shop barista that’s nearly half her age and has its hijinx when all their kooky, quirky friends get involved. Opposites is about love being blind, and brings back the lightheartedness and fun in surviving a set of complex and ironic misunderstandings. It challenges our expectations and presumptions of modern romance.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

 Romantic Comedy, Comedy

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

 Farcical comedies that use lust, wordplay and mistaken identity as a formula for fun haven’t been toyed with at great length all century, and this film explores this untapped well of comedy for all it’s worth. The humour is both high and low brow, with slapstick that’s self aware and wit that’s in on its own jokes. It had poor taste, rich taste, depth in substance and height in style. It’s about social situations over places, so it’s budget friendly for producers. It’s as much about performance as it hinges on plot, so it has director appeal.

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

 Love Hexagon.

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

 Akil: Willow
Kareem: Dumb and Dumber

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

 Four years

7. How many stories have you written?

  3-4 screenplays between us combined and various other works.

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the
most times in your life?)

 Favourite song: Michael Jackson – Billie Jean

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

 The story outline was the greatest obstacle because it’s an intentional maze of twists that further supports the other elements of the screenplay. There was a blurred line between clever and convoluted in putting the plot together.

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

 Akil: Video Editing
Kareem: Song Writing

COMEDY Best Scene of GUMMED UP IN GRIT LAND, by Mike Hoberg

 

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR: Becky Shrimpton
Wyatt: Allan Brunet
Cletus: Merlin Simard
Gang Leader: Anthony Tran
Billy Bob: Scott Beaudin
Savannah: Salma Dharsee

Get to know the writer:

1. What is your screenplay about?

“Star Trek” meets “Andy of Mayberry”

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Comedy, Action, Central Hero, High Concept

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It’s just a fun family movie.  Wyatt Dollar and the screenplay’s other characters don’t feel the need to use the f-word as the building block of every sentence. They rely on the rest of the English language, which proves more than adequate.

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Southern Comfort

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

Dirty Harry

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

A couple years

7. How many stories have you written?

Four screenplays

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the
most times in your life?)

I Shot the Sheriff – Bob Marley (A twenty-five career in law enforcement will get you to say that.)

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Getting to sleep because it was just too fun to write.

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

My wife, cycling, and triathlons.
