Get to know the writer:

 1. What is your screenplay about?

The Paper Princess is about a courageous, young princess called Paige who goes on a journey to save her home, after a cruel sorcerer transforms her into paper. Accompanied by her two friends, a grouchy hermit and a brave sprout, Paige learns that her paper doesn’t have to be a curse, it can be a source of power.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Animation, Fantasy and Adventure.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It’s a fun, epic adventure which embodies several positive themes: a princess who doesn’t need a prince to break her curse – she breaks it herself; change is always possible, as a person and in society; and, true strength comes from within.

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Paper wins!

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

Moulin Rouge

6. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

About one year.

7. How many stories have you written?

At least twenty (three film scripts, a collection of dark fairy tale short stories, other short stories and one book).

8. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

Daryl Hall & John Oates – You Make My Dreams Come True

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

I faced quite a few obstacles writing The Paper Princess. The main male protagonist Aeren went through many changes during the early drafts. Because of his complex character, some readers found it hard to relate to him. In the end, I decided to completely redraft the character and I’m really happy with the end result. When I finished the script, I fell into a bad habit of redrafting and editing the first ten minutes of the script again and again because I felt it wasn’t right. Eventually I realised I was just being overly pedantic and had to take a step back.

Finding time to write while balancing my home and work life was very difficult too.

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

I love reading, especially fantasy, and visiting new places. I gained a lot of inspiration for The Paper Princess when I went travelling in Japan.

11. You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What has been your experiences working with the submission platform site?

It was really easy and had no problems.

12. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I entered the festival because I’m eager to get more feedback on my script and improve its chances of being made one day. The feedback I received was really thorough and gave me some really good things to think about. My only concern about my feedback was there were some points that conflicted with other feedback I’d received in the past, leaving me feeling unsure on how to move forward. But, overall, I’d recommend this festival for anyone looking for industry feedback.
