Writer Biography – Rodrigo Juatco

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.

Action/Adventure Festival – August 22 2018

Gustavo Freitas (OPERATION BROTHER SAM)

Being able to have professional actors reading your script is a wonderful experience. It’s invaluable. Feedback was good, but it can’t be compared with a table-read. First, it was very satisfying to see all these characters come to life. Second, to be able to hear an actor performing your material is an incredible tool to sharpening the dialogue. I would recommend every single writer to do at least one table-read of their scripts.

Action/Adventure Festival – August 19 2018

I am always very grateful to hear feedback from anyone willing to offer it, especially from people who don’t have a personal stake in it or me. As a young filmmaker, I always want to improve and get better, and I find that the honesty of critique to be the ultimate took in achieving that goal.

Action/Adventure Testimonial – August 14 2018

Andy Hourahine (BREAK ROOM)

Twofold. A film fan, I think the idea of the audience being able to participate is great. In fact, debating films is one of the joys of movie-going. On the other hand, as a filmmaker, you learn to consider the source and be very selective on what criticisms to listen to. Otherwise, you’d never put anything out there ☺. All in all, I thought the curator very intelligent and understood the film well.
