Video Pitch: Ghost In The Porcelain, by Melissa R. Mendelson (NOVEL)

Get to know the writer: 

1. What is your story about?
We always look at porcelain dolls with either admiration or apprehension, and sometimes, we let our minds wander as to what might lie beneath the porcelain.  One family will discover that answer, and in doing so, they may release an ancient evil, something so dark that it might consume them all.  And unfortunately, this may be only the beginning.
2. Why should people know this story?

The Twilight Zone used to captivate us with its bizarre and frightening stories, stories that still haunt us today, and stories that still make us crave to be both thrilled and chilled with ideas and things as simple as a porcelain doll.

3. This story has a lot going for it. How would you describe this story 
in two words?

Hauntingly Frightening

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

I have seen many movies since I was a child, and I have many favorites.  And one my favorites is Cat’s Eye especially the third story.  The cat knew the little girl was in danger, and she knew it too.  But nobody believed her, and who would think that a stray cat was the girl’s only chance for survival?  Still, the monster remained, hidden deep within the walls and waiting to steal her breath away.

5. How long have you been working on this story?

I started working on this story back in October of 2017.

6. How many stories have you written?

I have written numerous short stories, and recently,  a lot of my Horror short stories have been published by Sirens Call Publications.

7. What motivated you to write this story?

Back in 2015, I wrote the novella, Porcelain, and I’ve always played with the idea of making it into a series.  But in many ways, Porcelain failed, so I am taking the story back to the beginning when the porcelain doll first arrives in town and with the horror and heartbreak that is left in its wake.

8. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Photography

9. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Even if a story fails, don’t give up on it.  Try to write a spin-off or prequel and see where it takes you.

I’ve played piano/keyboard for twenty-two years and I’ve been a Martial Artist for forty-nine years and counting.

Video Pitch: Blue Light, by Andrew Fisk (TV PILOT)

Get to know the writer: 

  1. What is your story about?

The main character, Michael Wenders, has had visions of a comet made of blue light coming to Earth since he was twelve years old. He also had visions of the “monster” it would bring with it. He knew his life would be intertwined with its arrival and he became a scientist to prepare for its coming. When the comet finally arrives, his obsession takes over his life and nearly ends it.

  1. Why should people know this story?

The team of biological researchers that Michael belongs to recover the winged alien from a lake in Northern California. They are diverse to say the least: a religious fanatic who has conversations with his computer, an empath, a Holocaust survivor, a Russian defector and a scientist who escaped a childhood of poverty and abuse.

 

Michael’s obsession with the alien leads him to inject himself with its DNA. He slowly becomes the alien and Michael almost disappears. His transformation from human to alien is amazing to watch. The universe has somehow selected him to help the alien accomplish its mission. But is the alien benign or evil?

  1. This story has a lot going for it. How would you describe this story in two words? 

Lost love. (Found again.) Okay that’s actually four words but two of them are in parentheses.

  1. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

Blade Runner. Followed closely by Forrest Gump and American Graffiti. I realize there are very few similarities between these movies.

  1. How long have you been working on this story? 

A number of months. It only seems like forever. This story started out as a feature film but I realized there was too much material for two hours of screen time. So I restructured it as a twelve episode limited series and included more backstory on the main characters (including the alien).

  1. How many stories have you written?

I have written six feature length screenplays, a dozen short films, and two TV series.

It only seems like forever.

  1. What motivated you to write this story?

I am intrigued by the story of someone whose obsession is so intense that they are willing to risk their life (and suffer a horrible death) to follow it through. Michael is so controlled and emotionally isolated yet the alien he wants to emulate  is willing to fly across the universe looking for his lost love. Even if it takes thousands of years.

I also enjoyed writing about the alien’s home world and their civilization. There are flashbacks in the story that could provide some great visuals.

  1. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

College football, the outdoors, ocean kayaking. I have been on several weeklong kayaking trips in the Canadian Pacific and it is the best vacation imaginable.

  1. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

The well-known saying is that “Writers write.” But to that you can add “Successful writers read.” Whether you write novels, non-fiction, advertising copy or whatever, reading makes you a better writer. It can be any kind of material…history books, magazines, science fiction, trashy novels. Your brain needs to make friends with the written word.
