Film Courage: Van if we were going to get a seven minute lesson from you on writing a screenplay, I’ve never written a screenplay before but I have this movie idea, can you help me write that screenplay in seven minutes? Not the actual screenplay in seven minutes but instruct me how?
Van Ditthavong, Filmmaker/Photographer: Man…I’m not an authority but if I was asking myself when I was starting, what would I say to my younger self in seven minutes? I would first off say – What’s the story? What’s genre? Why do you want to tell it? Give me three words about the story…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).

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.
