Abstract / Summary

Treatment and Script

In 1882 a young Jamaican travels to Panama to work on the Canal, in his struggle to survive he finds that capitalism is another type of slavery.”

Freeman is co-written with Adrianne Arendse, a 7-part episodic TV series developed to the industry standard of show 'bible' and pilot episode.

The project was submitted to two of the largest US script competitions, Screencraft and Shore Scripts, achieving quarter and semi-final placings respectively, and favourable coverage from studio readers.

The project has produced research findings that give insight into the route to market for writers in modern day Hollywood. Ancillary outputs include a Coverfly presence for the project (at time of submission it ranked in the top 4% of screenplays) and valuable insights into the requirements and standards expected of speculative scriptwriting. These insights have fed into the Film BA(Hons) modules Production Cultures 1, and Skills Development, with teaching material drawing on both the show ‘bible’, script, web presence, studio notes and coverage scores, giving students an up to the minute model of how to approach the Hollywood studio industry as a speculative scriptwriter.
