Get to know the writer:
What is your screenplay about?
My screenplay is a Dark Comedy parody of the terrible condition of the entire Millennial generation. They are the first generation in human history to be "worse off" than their parents. They have a harder time finding work or a place within society due to their "woke" state. The screenplay also highlights the lack of understanding of Baby Boomers and Gen X's toward the plight of the Millennials.

You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What have been your experiences working with the submission platform site?
I find it easy. It's just a bit expensive, and to be honest, I don't know if I've ever really gained anything real by submitting.
What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?
I wanted to see if I'm really a good writer, or do I just think I'm a good writer. I wanted my work to be evaluated by professionals. I was extremely happy to go on to win 15 screenwriting awards from all over the world. I think it's safe to say that I'm a talented writer.
