The Dark Place

Film

Overview:

This one made it from idea to screen... but it took about two decades to get there! From idea to beat sheet to treatment to draft to shooting script, the story changed as it went along. It didn't change greatly though. It was always about a Protagonist going home, encountering danger, and having to make amends in order to survive.

This one made it from idea to screen... but it took about two decades to get there! From idea to beat sheet to treatment to draft to shooting script, the story changed as it went along. It didn't change greatly though. It was always about a Protagonist going home, encountering danger, and having to make amends in order to survive. That path changed from the first time I pitched it to a production company -- who loved the idea but wanted me to go away and write it all for free and then bring it back to them to see if they wanted to make it -- to when the funding agreement came in from the EP that allowed us to start production.
