Action/Adventure Festival Testimonial – October 16 2018

It was nice to hear that the audio design was appreciated, particularly that knee stomp (Hi Stewart!). We spent a lot of time making it ‘wetter’, so it’s nice to hear it specifically mentioned. It was also nice to hear the production design was appreciated. The mention of that shot where everything is swept off the table got me particularly, as watching playback for that on set was the first moment I felt we really had something cool in the making.

Action/Adventure Testimonial – October 15 2018

I’ve been submitting “Wayfarers” to a bunch of places. The notion that some of it could be performed seemed interesting – it’s a twist on the usual screenplay contest, and in some ways, it’s more valuable to me as a writer-director. 
– Arnon Z. Shorr, Feature Screenplay “Wayfayers”

7ee5774a6b headshot

After receiving a BA in English Literature from Simon Fraser University in 2004, Rodrigo Juatco went on to ghost write for Filipino-Canadian newsprint on his spare time while working as a warehouse Supervisor for the next ten years. Movies, however, have always been a passion of his. And so he began the arduous task of mastering the craft of screenwriting. He has since placed in the Quarter finals in the Page Awards International on two separate occasions. Though writing is now a hobby, Rodrigo hopes to one day pursue his passion on a full time basis.
