Contest News

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Mike Anka

An interview with screenwriter Mike Anka regarding the Indie Gathering Writing Competition.

Q: What's the title of the script you entered in this contest, and what's it about?

A: The title is THE SURFER'S STORY.

It's about two young people. They were young and radiant when they met and fell in love. A sudden twist of fate changes him for life. He loves her but he sets her free. She will work in the shadows to keep him alive as he fights his demons to a bitter-sweet victory.

Q: What made you enter this particular contest? Have you entered any other contests with this script? If so, how did you do?

A: I was advised by a friend regading Indie Gathering as a decent Festival/Competition. He was right.

This was the first contest entry with this particular script. I have another feature which finished third and two more finalist feature scripts elsewhere.

Q: Were you satisfied with the adminstration of the contest? Did they meet their deadlines? Did you receive all the awards that were promised?

A: I was very satisfied with the administration and the content itself. They met all their deadlines right on target and the award-ceremony was professional. I did receive my medal and awards as promised.

Q: Were you given any feedback on your script? If so, did you find the feedback helpful?

A: I received indirect feedback and I found it helpful.

Q: Has your success in this contest helped you market your script? Were you contacted by any agents, managers or producers?

A: Yes, this contest helped with marketing my script. Currently the script is posted on Inktip.com and the contest winning helped its exposure. I was contacted by producers and managers.

Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?

A: My background is live theatre and novels. I directed plays in the past and published two novels [not self-published]. I'm relatively new to screenwriting but I love the visual arts for a long time.

Q: Do you live in Los Angeles? If not, do you have any plans to move there?

A: I don't live in Los Angeles and have no plans to move there unless a golden opportunity arises.

Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?

A: Currently I'm sketching out the scenes for my next feature script, titled TRANSYLVANIA.
