What is your screenplay about?

Two fifth-grade boys find themselves entrenched in the world of politics.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Family, comedy .

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It is a comedic look at many of the foibles of modern politics that would hopefully lead to discussions about politics while providing a few laughs.

Farcical civics

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

More than a handful, less than a ton.

For some reason, the ridiculous behavior of politicians has been on my mind lately…

It was, at times, difficult to keep the story simple and straightforward while still maintaining some level of believability (though this is a satire and meant to be seen as such).

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

Participating in interesting experiences that I can use in my writing.
