Get to know the writer: 

 1. What is your screenplay about?

FUTURE TENSE is about being forced to grow up too quickly and see the world for what it is. To see what happens when over eager manipulative people try to destroy everything through greed and corruptive power. Be it government or family. Rob’s family frame him for the murder of his own parents because of their own greed then he must try to stop a extinction level event brought on because of government greed.

It stems mainly because of the fact of sometimes people are forced to grow up

too quickly in society.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

FUTURE TENSE should be made into a movie because is captures the passion and humanity of everyone and everything within us all. From the couch potato to the sports enthusiast to the senior citizen. This gripping screenplay screams watch me, feel me, it has the passion and desire within the pages. The depth of characters, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be on the edges of your seats you may even beat your head against the proverbial wall in frustration at why some characters do some things…until you figure out why they do them.

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

Writing flows pretty well with me. Many obstacles that I observe involves the following. Some things I take in many screenplays FUTURE TENSE being among them are parts of my own life, as I base some aspects of myself on my main characters. It adds a sense of depths. It also allows me to add or invest more emotion into them. Therefore it also makes it so I can add too much emotion too them. It makes it difficult to detach myself, especially when editing. I never want to take anything away, then I work odd hours, my social life gets strained. Then with all screenplay writers and authors research is a major key and becomes a obvious obstacle. As it takes time to read, and gather material, sort through and corroborate.

The single biggest issue with FUTURE TENSE I had was the conclusion. I spent two weeks on the conclusion itself and five different conclusions. Finally decision on leaving it fairly open for a potential sequel. Where the first few conclusions I made were disastrous for everyone.

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

Apart from writing my passions are sports both playing and watching…mainly baseball. I love music, watching and collecting movies almost all kinds except war or westerns. Also I spend time with family and friends.
