I prefer stories that experiment, take risks, reveal the most intimate parts of the characters’ psyches, and that aren’t afraid to blend genres, conventions, and tropes. I’m keen to see scripts that are refreshingly honest and reveal something new or unusual about human nature. Screenwriters should use plot structures, genre conventions, and language itself as vehicles for exploring the human condition.
