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.

Read recent testimonials of writers/filmmakers works showcased at the Thriller/Suspense Festival:

I was very moved and excited by watching the feedback video. It’s so amazing to see how people react.
– Erich Steiner, (Short Film, In the Still of the Night)

I truly believe that a table read is the next best thing in seeing my script on the big screen — so I entered my new thriller “The Devil’s Larceny.”
– Howard Fridkin, (Feature Script, The Devil’s Larceny)

I always thought that once a film is finished (or abandoned, as someone said once…), it no longer belongs to the filmmakers – it belongs to the audience. This festival is the perfect illustration of that. I very much appreciate the fact that your audience took the time to watch MEDIATION in the first place, and then chose to stay after the screening to discuss it. As a writer-director, I couldn’t ask for more – if there is an audience that cares enough to talk about a film I wrote and directed, then I’ve done my job.
– Francisco Lorite (Mediation Short Film)

I had heard rumors the feedback was genuine, and it did NOT disappoint. It helped me get to what you are about to watch and enjoy!
– Marc W Johnson (Legacy, Feature Film)

It was amazing to see the audience interact with the film. As a short filmmaker you rarely get the opportunity to get that much of detailed feedback from an audience. The general statement “It looks beautiful, but what the hell is going on” didn’t come as that much of a surprise as it is similar to reactions we received from other audiences 🙂 However, I myself enjoy films (or any piece of art for that matter) where there is lots of room for personal interpretation. So it is not that much about the intention of the writer or director, but more about what the audience makes of it for themselves. So in that sense I very much enjoyed the different interpretations and speculations concerning the story.
– Daniel Reimer, (Short Film, Bell Tower Enigma)
