'Escape From The Commodore 64' Screenplay Picks Up Awards From Los Angeles International Screenplay Awards, Navy International Film Festival, Bridge Fest And Beyond Border International Film Festival.

It's been a great start for screenplay that I wrote with author Belinda Missen. This is my second screenplay that's a co-write, the first being for 'The Dog Club' that I wrote with author Andrew Thelander.

The screenplay for C64 takes a new direction from the book, they're very different. The book has far more acceleration attached to it and 'The Last Ninja' becomes an enemy who will reoccur throughout the story. The stakes are higher, the action more frenetic, the danger more palpable and all of the other tropes you'd expect migrating from novel to screenplay. However, some of the key dialogue remains in tact and it's still Sarah's story as she must escape from the breadbin of betrayl. Set in the 80's the screenplay also features music references to some of the best from that decade, including a-ha, Kim Wilde, Survivor, Joan Jett, Duran Duran, Icehouse and many more.

I'm always humbled when someone recognises my work and the end game is to try and find a producer for the screenplay. This is always the end game.

Love for the audiobook and book from both the retro game community and those who just bought it and enjoyed it is also much appreciated.
