ROBERT FALLIN - 10 Questions



10 Questions from the August 2014 Screenplay Best Scene Presenter.

1. What is your screenplay about?

"Tubular Romance" is about a brash American public relations agent and a beautiful Chinese executive who embark on journeys of self discovery as they traverse Europe and Asia to sell a radically new transportation system to a skeptical West.

2. Why should your script be made into a film?

"Tubular Romance" should be made into a film because "Tubular Romance" contains many of the elements that made so many of the following films so popular with the international market:
1) Choreographed music and dance, as did "Step Up Revolution" ($165,552,290)
2) Adult comedy, as did "What Happens in Vegas" ($219,375,797)
3) "Date movies" as did "Warm Bodies" ($116,980,662)
4) Serious romance such as "The Notebook" ( $115,603,229)
Also, because "Tubular Romance" will educate people throughout the world of a transportation system capable of bringing us together without force and for the benefit of all. A motion picture would cost
less than an advertising campaign for this transportation system and would also likely be extremely profitable.

3. How long have you been writing screenplays?

I completed my first screenplay in 1992; so I have been writing screenplays for 22 years.

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

I have seen "M*A*S*H" 14 times; my next nearest is "For a Few Dollars More," which I have seen 10 times.

5. What artists would you love to work with?

I would very much like to work with Celina Jade, Emily Bett Rickards, Jennifer Lawrence, Asa Butterfield, Milles Teller and Hailee Steinfeld.

I would very much like to see Justin Chambers, Jason Bateman or Guy Pierce star opposite Celina Jade in "Tubular Romance".

6. How many stories/screenplays have you written?

I have written five screenplays, three novellas and one three-act play.

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

I will be 70 in five years. In five years, I would like to see myself traveling on a HYPERTUBE system. I also would like to be developing a romantic drama to star Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld about the building of the radical transportation system described in "Tubular Romance".

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

My "method" for writing is place myself in the proper mood by means of music. I then create a "killer" opening and a "killer" ending. I then, write my way to the middle, based on intuition and logical plot and character progression.

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

I am passionate about technology designed to make the world a better place to live. I am also passionate about liberty and the opportunities it provides for people to be the best they can be without fear and outside interference.

10. What do you value the most?

I value, above all else, unconditional love and respect, which are actually one and the same.

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

The best advice I can offer anyone is, "When you receive praise criticism, no matter how pleasant or harsh, evaluate it thoroughly before embracing or rejecting it."

I have learned more about myself and my work from harsh criticism than I have from praise. I must, however, add, that I would never have completed "Tubular Romance" without the positive support and insight of others, particularly my wife and my composer.
