Contest News

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Paul Corricelli

An interview with screenwriter Paul Corricelli regarding the Table Read Writing Competition.


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

A: Inked in Blood.

It's the story of a unique and tortured young man who returns to the town he ran away from as a boy, to exact his revenge on all those who wronged him.

The story of his tormented past is uncovered as confronting each victim brings new horrors to the surface. One by one he will make them pay, until the one man responsible for his suffering pays-his father.

Inked in Blood is dark and gritty. The main character is a tattooed Albino. One side depicting images of Heaven, the other side Hell. Although there is NO religious message in the film, the tattoos play a big part in the look and feel of the story.

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 entered because I thought the idea of a table read was interesting. I have entered several other contests. In 2012 my screenplay placed in the semifinals of the 8th annual Action On Film International Film Festival. Inked placed in the quarterfinals of the PAGE screenwriting contest in 2013 and the semifinals of the Screenplay Festival. In December of 2014 Inked won the Table Read contest, horror category.

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

A: I was very satisfied with the results and received all the award promised.

Q: How long did it take you to write the script? Did you write an outline beforehand? How many drafts did you write?

A: I wrote it straight through in about six weeks. I made a few minor changes and submitted it to a few contests without much success. In 2012 I did a much bigger rewrite and began getting good response. I did write a very broad outline before I started writing. I wrote four drafts.

Q: What kind of software did you use to write the script, if any? What other kinds of writing software do you use?

A: I used Final Draft, and still do. I've used Contour and Scrivener. I'm not the most organized writer, so the software helps me keep things moving. It is also helpful when coming back to an idea some time later.

Q: Do you write every day? How many hours per day?

A: I try and write for two hours a day when I'm working. If I'm off work I try and work four to six.

Q: Do you ever get writer's block? If so, how do you deal with that?

A: Yes, I do. Sometimes I revisit past script ideas. If that doesn't work I will make up a few characters and just write dialog. I wrote a sequel to inked in Blood a few years ago when I was blocked, and since I was familiar with the characters, it got my writing.

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

A: I actually work in the film industry,(not as a writer). I wrote the above mentioned sequel to Inked in Blood. Also, a Super Hero screenplay, a Zombie western (short) and I am currently rewriting an Action script that I wrote several years ago.

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

A: Yes, I do live in Los Angeles.

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

A: Yes I am. As I continue to try and make something happen with "Inked", and my newest screenplay, Super Humans, I keep writing.
