11 Questions with Sandra Feldman. A WILDsound WINTER 2009 Feature Screenplay Finalist

1. What is your one page screenplay about?

Please Kill Mr. Know It All is a comedy about an anonymous advice columnist who finds herself caught in an unlikely romance with the man who's been hired to kill her alter ego. It's a hit man movie from the woman's point of view. Hopefully this will be the missing link movie-a movie that both men and women can enjoy.

2. Why did you decide to write this screenplay/What influenced you to enter the WILDsound One Page Screenplay Contest?

This screenplay started off as a joint effort between a friend of mine, Ian D. Mah, and me. We sent the script to each other, back and forth every week for a couple of months, each time adding a line or scene- whatever inspired us. There became a point where our script plots were diverging and we each went on to write our own screenplay. After revisions, the only thing our screenplays shared were the names of the characters and one line. It's still a hit man movie but our stories are quite different.

3. How long have you been writing screenplays?

Four and a half years- after I saw my son's "student written" play at his high school.

4. What is your all-time favorite MOVIE? (name only one)

Today, it's "The Yakuza".

5. What artist in the film industry would you love to work with?

Michael Buble. I have plans......

6. How many screenplays have you written?

3 screenplays. I am having some difficulty with my current screenplay. I have 3 drafts of my first line and that's about it.

7. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Co- directing and producing 2 of my screenplays. Let's see how far a dream (and over confidence) can take you.

8. Describe your writing process?

I write when I am inspired and then I can do nothing else but write, write and write.

9. What are you passionate about besides writing?

I know it sounds corny, but my husband and 4 kids.

10. What influenced you to submit to the WILDsound contest?

My characters are alive in my head, but at this point they are just letters on a page. I would love to have them come to life- hearing the words for the first time.

11. Any advice for other writers?

Nobody can tell you who or what you are. You are what you are. And once you realize that, you can start your journey.

11 Questions with Sandra Feldman. A WILDsound FALL 2008 One Page Screenplay Winner

1. What is your one page screenplay about?

This screenplay is about the unsuccessful healing after a broken heart.

2. Why did you decide to write this screenplay/What influenced you to enter the WILDsound One Page Screenplay Contest?

Hmmm what made me write this, I'm going to lie and say that it's all fiction and there was no particular reason to write this. I entered the contest because I wanted to see this script on the big screen. As well, I have a great crew that I would love to have a chance to work with again.

3. How long have you been writing screenplays?

I have been writing screenplays for about 4-5 years. It's all a blurr.

4. What is your all-time favorite MOVIE? (name only one)

My all time favourite movie is "Strictly Ballroom"

5. What artist in the film industry would you love to work with?

I would love to work with Robert Downey Jr. Although my cousin Tony Leung Kar Fai would be a very close second choice.

6. How many screenplays have you written?

I have written 3 screenplays, 3 plays and have about 3 screenplays floating around on my computer.

7. Ideally, where would you like to be in 5 years?

In five years I'd like to be producing and co-directling a movie with Jackie Chan. Let's see how far my overconfidence can take me.

8. Describe your process; do you have a set routine, method for writing?

I write when I am inspired. And then I can do nothing else.

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

I am passionate about Martial Arts, Glenn Gould, John Lennon.

10. Why should people vote for your screenplay?

I think people may be entertained to see the script on the big screen. Maybe relate to it. Maybe be influenced. Maybe have a laugh or a cry.

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Don't be discouraged when things don't go as planned. When you come against a brick wall. it's just a test to see how much you really want it. The wall is there to stop the other people. You'll just have to find another way to get what you want. Oh yeah, and write, write and write.

Growing up in Belle River, Ontario, Sandra Feldman spent her days immersed in martial arts movies. For years, she wished to begin martial arts training, but could not because, as the saying goes, "girls should be seen, not kicking ass." She could only content herself with watching classes from the sidelines. Finally, encouraged by her future husband, she joined a Tae Kwon Do school in 1983. In 1993 Sandra realized her childhood dreams of appearing in a kung fu series as a stunt woman. She is currently a 5th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and is the proud mother of four children, all black belts themselves.

Sandra wrote The Art of Wushu as a love letter to kung fu films everywhere. It was the product of years of thought and truly came to life one day on a paper napkin. Her previous film work includes Touch of Grey, a "coming of middle-age" feature length-film that she wrote, which is currently in post-production.
