Why is that so important? Because if you can get an A-list actor, director or other above the line talent attached to your script you can get your film made.
Actors, directors and other talented filmmakers wait their whole careers for stories that capture their heart.

When audiences go to an independent movie they want to see, feel and experience characters who embody deep authenticity, but who are surprising, quirky, yet, remind us of someone we know — maybe even ourselves.
But you can’t sacrifice conflict, action and drama for all unique and quirky characters. You’ve got to do it all. Think of movies like “The Fighter” or “The Kids Are Alright.” Or even “Little Miss Sunshine.” Those movies had moments of hilarity, sadness, longing and total pathos. That’s a tall order for a writer to deliver.
The challenge is to create a movie that is deeply personal and emotional AND also grabs an audience using tried and true techniques of storytelling.
