One Word: Zombies
Duane Willoughby co-wrote the 2014 48 Hour Film Project Atlanta short Zombie Dickheads in Time Insensitive. The short took home two awards: Best Special Effects and Audience Award in Group C. The film exploits the popularity of zombies. Zombies are very, very popular. Written, filmed, and edited over one weekend, the movie is humorous and quirky. Duane has a bright future.
Duane wrote the highly anticipated horror movie Abigail, which is scheduled to begin production in early 2015 and released in 2016. The film is loosely based on a true story set in Georgia. Pretty awesome since the Atlanta area has seen a substantial increase in films shot in the state. Duane is also extremely fortunate.
Thousands of people toy with the idea of penning an Oscar winning script. Unfortunately the reality is quite bleak. Between 30,000-50,000 scripts are registered annually. Of those, 150 scripts are sold or optioned. Less than 10 are actually produced. The odds are a staggering 5,000 to 1 that someone will sell a screenplay. Consider that the odds for being possessed by Satan are 7,000 to 1. Yikes!
