Entrepreneur turned Screenwriter--
I've started a lot of businesses in my life, and I have done just about everything I've ever wanted to do. Then several years ago I decided to pursue that which has been screaming to come out since my high school and college days, but put on hold to make a living. And that is to write screenplays for movies.
It turns out that I have saved the best for last.
NOW- if you care to read more on what I've been writing...
I have written a trilogy called A Night For Souls. The first one is, A Night For Souls- Destiny Calls Us As One, and is where it all begins, but it can certainly stand all by itself, as it was meant to all along. After it was completed though, a second storyline just came out in a very natural way.
The second one is called, A Night For Souls- Forever With You, and is based on familiar characters from the first, and adds an interesting new one, not to mention several big surprises. It also fills in the intentional holes left out of the first film and sets up for the third.
The third one, A Night For Souls- A Song Yet To Be Sung, brings our entire story full circle- yet really leaves you wanting more. It pulls in the past characters and journal writings of the 1800's, right into the present. Only this time I've written it with a much deeper and overt spiritual influence and direction to the characters destiny.
It has been a lot of fun adding in clues, props, and setups in all three films- that relate to their counterparts, and will be fun for future fan-boys to discover. i.e. I was able to rewrite a scene in ANFS-1 by slipping in a Stranger who will rescue our hero Paidin, when he was 8-years old and in trouble. He will then walk away without drawing any attention to himself.
That same Stranger will appear again in the second film, only this time as a glorified Angel. Paidin is now a 35-year old soldier (in the year 1835) who was seriously wounded and presumed dead, and left in a row of bodies. A surreal dimension opens just above Paidin's head and the Stranger appears to him. He speaks of his future and of his purpose, kisses his forehead, and disappears- moments before he is found alive by a soldier searching for him after a major battle.
The Stranger will show up again in ANFS-3, only this time it will be in the present, and during a short wedding scene. After much panic from having the groom's friend get violently sick and not be able to sing at his wedding, a Stranger suddenly walks up to the altar and sings a very beautiful and personalized song to the bride and groom- with the voice of an angel... Full Circle. The groom's name is Paidin.
