ACTION/ADVENTURE Festival Testimonial – January 14 2019

Screenwriter Alan Rosenfeld (Jonny Quest: The Terror of Dr. Zin)

I needed a starting point to kick off this adaptation. A gauge on not only my ability to write a complete script but also on how other fans would take to seeing one of their childhood icons come to life again. There are many voices when it comes to writing a story such as Jonny Quest. The invaluable feedback from the festival helps me understand what other see in the story and help guide me as a young writing artist and bring the story to life.
Watch the Screenplay Reading: 

Logline: “When a madman attempts to destroy Apollo 11, a courageous clever young man and his family must outwit their old nemesis to save the rocket and heal family wounds”.
