Crime/Mystery Festival Testimonial – April 29 2020

Screenwriter Christian Jilka (CAPTURE THE FLAG)

I have looked at the website and found that it may fit my screenplay really well. I liked the idea of a genre-based screenplay competition, so I gave it a shot and I am very glad I did. The feedback was great and insightful. It didn’t shy away from pointing out things that were holding the screenplay back from unlocking its full potential, while also complementing those aspects that already worked and made it special.

Watch the Screenplay Reading: 

A depressed history teacher, a narcoleptic small-time crook and a teenage girl dreaming of becoming a pop star. Three very different people yet they could all use a bit more money in their lives. Luckily, they cross paths when finding a historic yellow diamond which an anonymous collector is offering a bag full of cash for. As none of the three is willing to split the money, however, they quickly become competitors in a game of deception. A thrilling race begins in which only one of them can capture the flag…
