Screenwriting and scripts
Film-making involves many crafts. It’s impossible to master all of them. It’s for this reason that Erik is currently focussing on screenwriting. There is a lot said and written about screenwriting, some of it good, some less so.
At the end of the day, writing is a craft that one can only truly master by sitting down and hammering away at that keyboard.
Between writing assignments, Erik finds time to work on spec scripts. Two of them are currently shopped:
Get It Made
Get It Made is a rom-com set in London. Synopsis: a Call center agent joins a fast food server to find their voice. Navigating the practicalities of living, their lack of experience, and a host of peculiar Londoners, they venture to manifest their creative potential.

Work in Progress
