The Godfather

Nearly 2years

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

To see if I could write a story others would find interesting

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Forcing myself to focus on completing the storyline rather than continually revising one section.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Military history

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

It involved feedback. All feedback is welcome and is frequently helpful, as in this case
