MACHIAVELLI&CO. Independent Film Pitch

The story develops around a young (early 30s), successful and very ambitious L.A. couple: Daren and Aimee. Their strive for achieving more success and dangerous social experimentation eventually ends in a bitter way. After getting everything they wanted and there's no way left to satisfy the mechanical desire and greed, Daren kills her wife Aimee as her birthday present and also himself right after that. Shortly, the snake bites its own tail.

The genre of the screenplay (102 pages) could be best described as a dark-satire (cynical yet humorous). There are other layers of the story, including Ingrid Bergman as a role-model for Aimee and an out-of-control virtual mentor for Daren.

I've produced a short-film about the same story and it's in festival circulation. At the moment, I'm looking for the right producer to take on the new screenplay and find financing. The location is limited and the estimate budget is 1 Million US$.

Sounds like you've put 100% into this film. I hope your project succeeds to fruition. This lot in life we have, is often wroth with disappointments, rejections, and the slow wheels of progress. Be encouraged! And most of all... Keep On Writing.
