Step 1: Selecting Your Text

I selected Steinbecks, "The Pastures of Heaven." I was drawn to the source material becuase of Steinbecks unique ability to paint a simple yet complex world with rich characters. 

Step 2: Drafting Your Screenplay

My goal in using "The Pastures of Heaven" as a source material was to adapt the character of Edward "Shark" Wicks (who I immediately fell in love with when reading) and incorporate him into an orignal story and modern world, in which he struggles to keep his false wealth alive in the eyes of his beloved community.


Step 3: Writing Your Logline

The one thing Edward "Shark" Wicks loves more than money is pretend money. But when his wife is kidnapped for ransom, playing pretend becomes dangerous.
