Story read by actress Maya Woloszyn

Get to know writer Helen Freeman:

1) What is your very short story about?

My short story is about two friends sitting and talking and deciding who annoys them the most. They decide to start a list and title it, “People I Want to Punch in the Face”.

2) What motivated you to write this story and submit it to the festival?

I have been toying with this idea for a while, and found that keeping anything to 140 characters was quite difficult. I also just wanted to see how it would be received.

3) What movie have you seen the most in your life?

That would be hard to say. One of my favorites is “Forrest Gump” , “Gone With the Wind”; and I thought “Boyhood” was brilliant.

4) How many scripts and stories have…

Where is the ‘Good’ in ‘Goodbye’?, Twitter Short Story by W.T. Paterson

WILDsound Writing and Film Festival Review

Watch the 140 Character Short Story – WHERE IS THE ‘GOOD’ IN ‘GOODBYE’?:

Get to know writer W.T. Paterson:

1) What is your very short story about?

This story a comic twist on the airport goodbye. Too many times people cry and weep and hug each other saying ‘be safe’ and ‘I’ll miss you’ but the truth is, that’s only part of it. In this case I thought it would be funny to have the guy be both brutally honest and kind of a dimwit. If that’s the last thing he’s going to say to her, of course she’s going to cry. I also thought she’d remember it more than anything else he could have said.

It made me chuckle, and when that happens there’s probably more people who will chuckle too. Plus when people change the reason they’re crying so quickly, I don’t care who you are, it’s always…

Stop Crying Please, Twitter Short Story by Matthew Williams

WILDsound Writing and Film Festival Review

Watch the 140 Character Short Story – STOP CRYING PLEASE:

Get to know writer Matthew Williams:

1) What is your very short story about?

It is the story of someone who is pushed to their limits, but not thinking it through.

2) What motivated you to write this story and submit it to the festival?

I like the idea of creating stories with limitations. The twitter-esque length of characters makes it more challenging to tell a story but still try to remain intriguing.

Hm, honestly? Probably Toxic Avenger, or Blade Runner.

4) How many scripts and stories have you written?

Too many to count, but never enough to feel satisfied. As long as I can tell a story, I will continue to do so.

5) What artists would you love to work with?

David Lynch, Guy Maddin, Hal Hartley…

I think I must have written over…

WILDsound Writing and Film Festival Review

Watch the 140 Character Short Story – BEYOND THE CONDIMENTS

Get to know writer Edward Case:

1) What is your very short story about?

It was a take on “boy meets girl.” I think we meet the most important people in our lives in the weirdest ways.

2) What motivated you to write this story and submit it to the festival?

I was grocery shopping and saw one of the market’s workers trying to contain a spill of broken pickle jars. I saw how people were detouring around him with their carts and going about their business. I thought, I just missed a story here. So I made a new one and entered it.

3) What movie have you seen the most in your life?

I’m not even sure, because I’ve watched so many. So it’s probably some older movie like Blade Runner, which I’ve watched a ton.

4) How…
