WILDsound Festival

Watch THE AMERICANS “Revolution and Resolution”

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Becky Shrimpton
PHILIP – Devin Upham
PAIGE – Erynn Brook
ELIZABETH – Lauren Toffan
HENRY – Adam Martignetti
PASTER TIM/STAN – Allan Michael Brunet

Get to know writer Addison A A  Bhuyan:

 1. What is your TV spec about?

The Americans – Revolution & Resolution is about how Elizabeth and Philip are forced to take action when they are betrayed by their daughter, Paige.

2. Why does this spec fit into the context of the TV show?

I imagined this episode being the Season 4 premiere. And I wanted to kick-off the fourth season with a real bang! This would reward those fans who have seen every single episode of the previous three seasons, and get everybody excited about what’s to come next for these characters.

3. In this spec, you have invented the future conflict of the show with Paige and…

Watch TV PILOT Reading: VINCENT LOCKE: VILLAIN-AT-LAW by Christiaan Alexander Kutlik

I was mainly trying to find feedback on my script. After leaving college, I suddenly found myself in a void where I could no longer find critiques from peers. This festival felt like a great opportunity to find a professional critique, especially with the live table-read. Rarely does a screenwriter have a chance to hear their script performed live by actors.

Watch VINCENT LOCKE: VILLAIN-AT-LAW

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Becky Shrimpton
LOCKE – Adam Martignetti
FORD – Erynn Brook
BODYBUILDER – Allan Michael Brunet
PROSECUTOR/CHANG – Devin Upham
WHITE QUEEN – Lauren Toffan

Get to know writer Christiaan Alexander Kutlik:

1. What is your screenplay about?

Besides the super-hero aspect, what Vincent Locke: Villain-At-Law is about is average people trying to make their own mark in world where everyone else seems extraordinary.

2. Why should this screenplay be made into a TV show?

There’s a real richness to the world I have created that can be explored only on TV: it plays on a ton of super-hero tropes, these characters have complex emotions towards the world they inhabit, and I have envisioned numerous stories and changes to put these characters through.

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

Chaotic fun.

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

Probably The Lion King or The Nightmare Before Christmas. I watched them so much as a kid!

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

I first came up with the idea about 3 years ago after I heard a joke about a “lawyer for super-heroes” on the internet. Around the same time I was working on a comedic scene to present in my Intro to TV class at NYU. I based a scene around that joke, but the scene wasn’t very funny. I couldn’t shake the idea of a “lawyer for super-heroes” though, so I workshopped the idea until the “joke” became Vincent Locke: Villain-At-Law.

6. There was a debate with the actors at the reading on whether this script is better suited for live-action or in animation. What are you intentions with this pilot? A cartoon show or a live-action show?

Funny enough, that was a debate I had myself. The very first drafts were written as live-action, but after a few discussions with classmates I finally settled to write the script as an animation. Peers often made reference to shows like Ugly Americans, Bojack Horseman, and Archer so it just made sense to write the show as an animation.

7. What motivated you to write this screenplay?

The current climate of endless super-hero movies and shows seemed ripe to be mocked, but no show seemed to be stepping up to the plate. I wanted to be the one to take a swing at super-hero satire. I’ve also been a big fan of super-heroes, sci-fi, and fantasy since I was a kid. This script seemed like the perfect opportunity to have some fun with the genres I love.

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

I had to re-write the script several times since its inception 3 years ago. Every re-write changed the story in some radical way as I searched for the core of the story. Starting the script was often the most difficult part, as was coming back to edit a new draft.

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

I’m a huge gamer and graphic novels fan. You find such immersive and rich worlds that don’t seem could be fully captured in film or TV without a massive budget. Two examples that come to mind is Xenoblade Chronicals and Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman. Both give you an incredibly atmospheric world with a deep, immersive history.

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

I was mainly trying to find feedback on my script. After leaving college, I suddenly found myself in a void where I could no longer find critiques from peers. This festival felt like a great opportunity to find a professional critique, especially with the live table-read. Rarely does a screenwriter have a chance to hear their script performed live by actors.

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

Sometimes you need to step away from a project for a while before you can see your writing for what it is. Speaking to other’s about your projects is also immensely helpful in finding holes and problems in your story.

Watch TV Spec Reading of BOB’S BURGERS by Travis McMaster & Tony Interdonato

A friend of mine who just moved to L.A. from Brooklyn read our script and recommend we enter it. The coverage and feedback were right-on and helped us tighten up and improve things after staring at it for so many months.

Watch the November 2015 Winning TV Spec Screenplay Table Read.

Watch BOB’S BURGERS “Wreck Center”

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Becky Shrimpton
BOB – Allan Michael Brunet
LINDA – Erynn Brook
LOUISE – Lauren Toffan
GENE – Adam Martignetti
TINA – Devin Upham

Get to know writers Travis McMaster & Tony Interdonato:

1. What is your TV spec screenplay on Bob’s Burgers about?

We wanted to do a full family story. Mr. Fishodoer has extorted the Belcher family into using the rec. center.

2. Why should this screenplay fit into the context of the tv show?

In the previous seasons we’ve seen a lot of building of the town mythos, with the wharf arts center, the track, the convention center. We wanted to expand the town and also Bob and Linda’s history in it. We liked having a connection to Bob and Linda’s youth that they could (overbearingly) share with their kids.

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

Family Adventure.

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

Tony: Star Wars (A New Hope)
Travis: According to my mom, Dumbo.

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

We started this spec last November. So 8-10 months before submitting it here.

6. How many stories have you written?

Tony: About 10 specs, 5 originals (both comedy and drama), and 20 comic book scripts
Travis: 2 specs, 3 pilots, outlines for 8 more, and I got a feature rattling around in my head that I can’t quite pin down.

7. What motivated you to write this screenplay?

We are both huge fans of Bob’s Burgers. The voice cast and writing team are so talented. In a lot of ways, it’s the spiritual successor to “The Simpsons” in terms of the family dynamic.

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

We struggled with Louise having enough purpose throughout, since Bob/Linda are teamed with Gene/Louise.
I struggled with maintaining and 80’s movie theme throughout, and then reconciling with the fact the the climax is a reference to ‘The Thomas Crown Affair’ which is very much a 90s film.

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

Tony: I’m an avid gamer, both table top and video games. I DM weekly for our Dungeons & Dragons group. I’m also an obsessive comic book fan and spend most of my free time in L.A. going out to concerts
Travis: Dogs. Really into dogs. Also Disney World, I’m a big theme park guy. And there’s this bisque, every Tuesday I drive to Burbank to get it from the Ragin’ Cajun food truck. It haunts me.

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

A friend of mine who just moved to L.A. from Brooklyn read our script and recommend we enter it. The coverage and feedback were right-on and helped us tighten up and improve things after staring at it for so many months.

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

Just write all the time, every free moment you have. Don’t sandbag yourself. If a show or idea resonates with you, pursue it, even if it’s only for yourself.
