ACTION Best Scene Reading of HERO OF HEROES by Rodrigo Juatco

The Hero of Heroes is an action/adventure story about Wu Tao, who along with an army of elite fighters (Terracon Warriors) is presumed dead in the War of the Wastelands. Until years later, a lone warrior (Wu Tao) emerges from the Wastelands carrying a message regarding the ill-fated demise of the Terracon. Wu finds himself on a road of vengeance. Standing in his way are assassins (The Brotherhood of Shadows), mercenary Conquistadors armed with Muskets and Cannons, and a powerful, embittered brother (Lord Ging) who is hell-bent on stopping Wu and putting an end to his legend once and for all.

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 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.

The LOS ANGELES JANUARY 2018 FEEDBACK Film Festival gave our audiences the best of CRIME & ACTION/ADVENTURE short movies from around the world.

The theme of the festival was “BREAKING EXPECTATIONS”.

Every film showcased was about a situation that was about a character(s) leaping out of their expected ideal.

January 2018 was the beginning of everything in Los Angeles for the FEEDBACK Film Festival. The first event of the monthly festival format. We plan on doing a festival every single month in LA from the rest of the existence of humanity!

There is a new management team for the FEEDBACK Festival in Los Angeles. One of our main workers fell sick with a stomach flu on the day, and one of our camera operators car broke down on the way to the cinema. So LA Feedback Coordinator Rachel Elder basically ran the festival all by herself – on her first time out at that. The Regal Cinemas manager said that what she pulled off was truly amazing. She was definitely the MVP of the night and we at WILDsound headquarters are truly grateful.

Shepsut Wilson was the moderator of the evening and did a fantastic job on her first time out. This will be the first of many for the talented performer who also puts in a lot of effort and research to make sure the best moderation for each film gets executed.

So we are on our way in Los Angeles. We showcased 7 shorts from all over the world on our first FEEDBACK Film Festival of 2018.

See you at the festivals.
