ACTION/ADVENTURE Festival Testimonial – March 29 2019

I love their (Adventure/Action Festival) concept of multiple ways to get your story out: from logline, to 1st scene, to full screenplay. The fast turnaround for feedback is critical for me as I’m sure it is with many new writers — as many new drafts have been made by the time most contests provide feedback and results.

ACTION/ADVENTURE Festival Testimonial – March 5 2019

It was so very cool to see! One of the most rewarding aspects of filmmaking is getting to sit in a theatre and experience an audience react to your work. Since I wasn’t able to be in Toronto for the screening, getting to hear the audience talk about it was the next best thing.

ACTION/ADVENTURE Festival Testimonial – January 20 2019

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 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”.

CAST LIST:

Dr. Zin – 5 – ADRIAN CARLOS CARTER
Dr. Quest – 4 – PETER NELSON
