Best Scene Screenplay Reading of THE LAST INDIAN WAR by Michael Graf

 

Best Scene from THE LAST INDIAN WAR Screenplay
Written by Michael Graf

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Val Cole
POP WARNER – Matthew Lawrence
FRANK HUDSON – Cory Bertrand
SAM AMERICNA HORSE – Peter-Mark Raphael
RICHARD PRATT – Vince Jerad

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Action, Sports, History, Drama

The Last Indian War is the incredibly moving coming of age story about the forced re-location of Native American Indian children and the birth of the modern game of football. It’s the true-life saga behind the most important football game ever played: the Carlisle –  Army football game of 1912.

Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

The Last Indian War is the inspirational true-life story about football’s origin and one of the greatest games ever played – the quest for the 1912 national championship between Native American Indians and the Army Cadets of West Point.

What genres does your screenplay under?

True Story/Historical/Western/Sports

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

This is the ultimate underdog movie. It’s about a group of Native American Indian children kidnapped by the US Military that go on and basically invent the modern game of American football. They fight racism and overcome so much to prove to themselves – and the world – that they have worth and dignity and that by working together they can achieve anything.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Truly Inspirational.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

That’s a tough one. Probably Star Wars.

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Including research? About 10 years.

How many stories have you written?

This is my second.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

It’s an amazing story – and an amazing part of American and sports history – that I knew nothing about. I also have a personal connection to the story – my grandfather bought his first house from Pop Warner.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Keeping true to the characters. These were real people and I feel an incredible responsibility to get their story right, but also to try and do so in an entertaining way that audiences can relate to.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Curling.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Find a story you’re passionate about. That passion will keep you motivated when times get tough.

Film Review: FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

Festival Reviews

fantastic_beasts_movie_poster.jpgDirector: David Yates

Writer: J.K. Rowling

Stars: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol

 Review by Gilbert Seah

The spin-off of the HARRY POTTER films that began as one of Harry Potter’s text books in HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE, FANTASTIC BEASTS is a Harry Potter film without Harry Potter. Directed by David Yates who did a number of the Potter films, FANTASTIC BEASTS looks just like a J.K. Rowling film (she wrote the screenplay) despite the fact that it is set in New York City. Perhaps the fact that the film was shot in Liverpool to stand in for NYC could be a reason.

The book contains the history of Magizoology and describes 85 magical species found around the world. To get into the spirit of Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts (not shown in the film), provides the Foreword and explains the purpose of the special edition…
