What I Wish I Knew About Screenwriting When I Started – Joe Wilson

Film Courage: What is something about storytelling you wish you had learned earlier in your career or you wish you had stuck to your guns on something? Maybe people tried to talk you out of it?

Joe Wilson, Writer/Director/Comedian/Photographer:  I guess I wished I’d knew how much more character development was to writing. I don’t think I developed the characters enough when I started writing and I think that’s where if I had known to take more time to develop the characters I think I would have had less of a challenge in either the writing or the rewriting (especially the rewriting) because I think when you’ve got a draft you are going through it…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).

SYNOPSIS FROM THE VAMPIRE MOB YOUTUBE:

Vampire Mob is an original series with cast from Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos, The Simpsons, Parks & Recreation and Criminal Minds.

“Entertaining, funny, and well written, at its heart Vampire Mob is really a story about family and the challenges we all face as we try to get through this world. Even if it is a world populated with vampires and hit men.”

SCIFI HORROR SEQUEL ‘MANDAO RETURNS‘ NOW STREAMING ON AMAZON PRIME 

 

This is the third feature from Writer/Director Scott Dunn and Producer Gina Gomez Dunn. They successfully raised funds for the sequel via Kickstarter and managed to complete production only 2 days before all film productions shut down due to the pandemic. Because of the lockdowns, Scott Dunn had to tackle post-production by himself (editing, color correction, effects, and sound) and release the flick in time for the holidays.
