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 Testimonial – July 7 2018

From Screenplay ZOMBIE CRUIZE, by A.K.A. SMITH

I love the enthusiasm and creativity in festivals like this and in all kinds of meetups with people in all areas of film making. This one seemed right for this screenplay. The initial feedback showed a huge amount of understanding and intelligence and was incredibly helpful and well-written.

Genre: Action, Adventure, Thriller, Horror

Poseidon Adventure meets Night of the Dead. When the world’s largest cruise ship is over-run by thousands of shambling, groping, synthetically reanimated corpses, celebrity Vlogger Rozo and her Dad Ammy, the Chief Engineer, must help the last survivors off the ship – which is made all the more hellish when it capsizes, as these particular flesh-eaters can swim like demented sharks.

Narrator: Carina Cojeen
Rozo/Holly: Carly Tisdall
Macavoy: Peter Nelson
