ACTION Best Scene Screenplay Reading of ROAR by Rodrigo Juatco

ROAR is a horror/thriller that explores the depths of perception verses reality. When Raymond Foust, a traumatized sole survivor of a plane crash into the Canadian forest of British Columbia, is plagued by nightmares of being attacked by a terrifying-otherworldly creature, he returns to the forest with his fiancée and members of his phobia support group to confront, what he believed to be, his irrational, unfounded fear of the forest. What he discovers, however, is his worst nightmare made real, as he and his group become the target of a merciless Beast, and all at once, truth and reality take a backseat to terror.

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
Narration – PAOLA SCATTOLON
Jade – 5 – KYANA TERESA
