Winning THRILLER Short Screenplay – THE SON, THE FATHER by Lukas Hassel

Watch the October 2016 Winning Short Screenplay.

THE SON, THE FATHER
Written by Lukas Hass

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Crime, Thriller, Horror

A ten year old’s birthday surprise has unexpected consequences far into his future.

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Hugh Ritchie
LUKE – Benjamin Camenzuli
FATHER – Paul Whitaker
MOTHER – Becky Shrimpton
SUSAN – Jane Smythe
GUARD – Percy Alexander Harris

Get to know the winning writer:

What is your screenplay about?

Theeatically, I explore the notion that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

– A young boy’s birthday sets in motion a series of events that will have dark consequences far into his adulthood.

What genres does your screenplay under?

Suspense, thriller, horror.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It is a fresh take on an old problem. A film with a strong drive and point of view.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Surprising. Horrific.

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

Cabaret.(30+)

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

From conception to finished project, about a year.

How many stories have you written?

5-6 feature screenplays, and 2 short screenplays (one of which was made into a successful sci fi short film, “Into the Dark”, winning many awards and screening in over 70 film festivals world wide.)

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

A bizarre personal story a friend told me over a coffee about his childhood. I took it and ran with that idea.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Candycrush.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I’m an actor (Blacklist, Blue Bloods, Limitless, The Black Room etc.- http://www.lukashassel.com) and a filmmaker (www.intothedarkmovie.com). I’m also passionate about injustice of any kind which is kind of a red thread through all my writing.

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

Don’t write unless you have something to say. Figure out what makes you furious, what gets you fired up, and write to that.
