 1. What is your screenplay about?

Forty winks is about the struggle between knowledge and fear, belief and self-doubt. The main character is a scientist, supposedly unemotionally committed to conclusions drawn from years of research, her life’s work.

Irene – Julie C. Sheppard
Vincent 30s – Hugh Ritchie
Narration – Victoria Urquhart
Stoughton 60s – Sean Ballantyne

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?
Murder Mystery/Erotic Thriller


3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?
“Modus Operandi” is diverse and embraces colorblind casting. My male leads are Latino and my leading lady is over 70. There is a dwarf and a hearing-impaired character, as well – both are police officers and figure prominently into the plot. And for the financiers out there: there are no car chases, heavy CGI or explosions! Plus: everybody loves a good mystery.
