Red Mist rounds off a successful year in competition

Paul Harker’s low budget, psychological horror screenplay Red Mist rounded off a successful 2020 in competition, winning two international screenwriter competitions and getting placements in six other contests, including a runner up spot, an honourable mention and two more finalist positions.

Originated in the spring of 2018, the script was drafted to a good level with notes from the Finishline Script Competition but then left dormant as Paul finished his MA in Scriptwriting at Salford University.

Picked up again in the summer of 2020, further redrafts and notes saw the script reach a First Draft level as a production ready proposition. The script was entered into a number of competitions via the Film Freeway portal.

The script is currently being read by a number of film productions companies in 2021. Hopeful the misadventures of serial killer and PhD candidate, Zander, will be menacing our screens in the near future.
