Hi K,

Kudos on all those wins!  Two thoughts for you:

  • I agree with Geoffrey that it could be shorter.  Tough to do sometimes, but worth the parsing if you can.
  • Is there something specific in the plot or story arc that you could mix in to give us a good "hook"?  

Great job and good luck!

Wow. That is fantastic and congratulations on your accolades. The only note I have if you want to shorten this up a bit would be:

In 1870, A recently freed slave faces life and death in his quest for freedom from his obsessed master.

That sounds like a very cool script. The log line seems a little long and a little fragmented.


A recently freed slave on the run from his obsessed former master must survive an unfamiliar frontier.
