Interviews

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Parker Briscoe

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.

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 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.

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, 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.

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

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.

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

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.
