Introduce Yourself : Hello Stage 32 by Nicholas Cariddo

Nicholas Cariddo

Hello Stage 32

My name is Nick Cariddo. I am an aspiring screenwriter from New Jersey. Last month I went to the Screen Writers World West Conference Pitch Fest in LA - and it was a dream come true - not because anyone told me I was the next great screenwriter (although that would've been cool) but because for the first time ever - I was with fellow writers talking and pitching our passions. I've been working on one particular screenplay for some time now (based on a true, untold maritime disaster from 1934)- and this story has truly infiltrated my soul. My hope: someone will find this story (and my take on it) interesting and worthy of making into a film. In staying with the "Introduce Yourself" theme: I am a nurse practitioner (by day). I work in an internal medicine clinic that serves mostly the Medicaid/charity care population (So if anyone on "Stage 32" has any medical questions - shoot'em my way :) I am married to a wonderful wife (who absolutely hates reading anything I write - mostly because she hates reading, go figure, right.) And I have two beautiful daughters (9 & 7) who among all their wonderful attributes, like to sing and play or do just about anything else in my writing area...while I'm writing. I also have a Masters Degree in Writing (from Monmouth University)---which was a real nice way to add to my already hefty school loan debt. But I can't get away from writing - it makes me feel alive. I am happy to be a part of the Stage 32 community!

Hello Nicholas, It is very nice to meet you. Thank you for adding me. Like you, I too, am in the medical field. I am a nurse. Although, it is not what I aspire to do forever. Anytime you would like an opinion or feed back, I'd be happy to read your script. Best wishes, Danielle

I missed the conference and hope to go in the future. How many people would you estimate attended? Would you go back again?

Nicholas Cariddo

I only went to the pitch slam... There were probably 200 + attendees . I think it was well worth it-- I got to pitch approx. 20-22 reps and about 1/2 that seem interested- and subsequently requested materials - I would go again
