An interview with screenwriter Parker Briscoe regarding the Writers Place Writing Competition.Q: What's the title of the script you entered in this contest, and what's it about?
A: Title: FOLKLORE
In a remote cabin, a young wife gives birth to a dog like beast, and later she dies giving birth to her second baby. After her funeral, the husband wrongfully murders the beast, who was protecting the second baby from a wolf.
A: I chose to submitt FOLKLORE to The Writers Place because they accepted short screenplays.
I also submitted FOLKLORE to:
American Gems Short script competition where it made their top 300 screenplay list.
PAGE International where it made it to the quater-finals.
FOLKLORE also got a favorable review from Slamdance.
A: I was very satisfied, if not shocked. The Writers Place contest was quick and no fooling around. They picked the finalists and a few weeks later there's 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
They contacted me soon after to recieve my 3rd place awards.
A: I recieved no feedback on the my script. It wasn't offered in the contest application, however the people running the contest seemed more then helpful to give feedback if requested.Q: Has your success in this contest helped you market your script? Were you contacted by any agents, managers or producers?
A: I haven't been contacted by anyone yet.Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?
A: I live in Canada and have gone through the ups and downs. To be a filmmaker has been my driving force since youth. I've worked as a video editor for the adult movie industry, and was an art director for a small time software company.
I am currently unemployed and all I do now is write scripts.
I have written many other scripts for feature length and short film. Both live action and animation. I have currently not sold anything.
A: I would love to move to L.A., however Canada is where I stay at the moment. Maybe one day.Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?
A: I am continuing to write. I got my next years crop growing right now. Most of them re-writes and a couple new ideas.
