I’ve recently finished a screenplay called Quiet on Earth. It’s set in a desolate post-apocalyptic world. A lone man treks across barren landscape in search of a missing woman, while a figure stalks him from a distance.

There is no dialogue and the characters do not have names. It is a distillation down to fundamental elements. I wanted to carve something right down to the bone. A film in haiku… like stretching the thin membrane of human hope against the void.

So if you’re interested to read it, please let me know.
