INTO THE STORM & STEP UP: ALL IN Writer John Swetnam

vor 4 Jahren

INTO THE STORM & STEP UP: ALL IN screenplay writer John Swetnam shares the trailers for his films and tells the truth of what writers need to do to get into Hollywood. From the dance subculture, to the joys of Back To The Future and perils of film school--we get the story of how to get noticed by the studios and look at the trailer of his film, Evidence on the Insiders with Sebastian Twardosz.

John Swetnam was an "Air Force Kid" and grew up all over the world. He sold his first spec script EVIDENCE to Bold Films, which was released in 2013. His next spec, INTO THE STORM, was setup at New Line Cinema with Broken Road producing and was released August 8th, 2014. He was brought on to script the fifth installment of the half-billion dollar dance franchise, STEP UP: ALL IN, which was also released August 8th, 2014. The films have grossed nearly a quarter billion dollars worldwide at the box office. In addition, he has several other scripts currently in development at studios, including action-thriller SPINBACK at Lionsgate/Summit and UNTITLED MARTIAL ARTS PROJECT at New Line Cinema. In 2013, he launched his production company, Mad Horse Films, and wrote, produced and made his feature directorial debut with BREAKING THROUGH, now in post-production.
