Get to know writer Mckenzie Trent:

1. What is your short screenplay about?

A young woman is forced to go to dinner with her dad’s new girlfriend, who happens to be a former school nemesis.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

Ultimately it’s a story about an unlikely friendship between two women. For it to be funny and still a woman’s character story is a tougher accomplishment these days. If expanded, I think it could be quite an adventure for these women and their goofy man in common.

This story has a lot going for it. How would you describe this script in two words?

Rival comedy

What TV show do you keep watching over and over again?

The Office, Arrested Development

This is a very tight, emotionally engaging and fun screenplay. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

About a year

How many stories have you written?

Too many? Probably 6 or 7 that were finished and shot.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

A really fun and successful improvised scene in a class. I just couldn’t let the idea go afterwards.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

It was originally a small web series and expanding it into a longer short provided its own challenges with character development and story pacing.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Acting! And I’m really into my women’s basketball league.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I was looking for guidance and some approval that I was on the right track. I agreed with most of the feedback.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Keep writing. And write what you love, not what you think other people want to read. Force them to pay attention to your material first.
