Paul Mahoney's 'Elvis Town', the winner of the Euroscript Screenwriting Competition 2016, has been optioned by Freshwater Productions. CEO Trish Lake (Gettin’ Square, Subdivision, My America, The Burning Season, Frackman and Early Winter).
'Elvis Town' is a feel-good romantic comedy feature film set in Parkes, New South Wales, about the annual Elvis Festival when thousands gather to watch hundreds of Elvis look-alike impersonators perform.
Trish Lake commented that “While ‘Elvis Town’ is set in Parkes, it represents an original Queensland creative project bringing together three Brisbane based talents of Producer, Director and Writer”.
Paul Mahoney said: “This will be an exciting opportunity for me to work with and learn from two of the most accomplished people in the Queensland film industry.”

OSCAR AND BAFTA WINS FOR GABRIELE ZUCCHELLI
All of us at Euroscript send huge congratulations to Gabriele Zucchelli, who - along with the team at Moving Picture Company - won the Best Special Visual Effects BAFTA and Oscar for their groundbreaking work on Disney's THE JUNGLE BOOK.
In an interview here, Gabriele explains just why the film was such a special experience for him.
Gabriele is currently working on an epic animated feature project with Euroscript Board Member Ian Long.
Talented Writer/Director Oz Arshad approached Euroscript for script editing services early last summer for his first feature film FINDING FATIMAH.
He worked with Anji Loman Field on two drafts of his script., which was already in pre-production.
FINDING FATIMAH starring Danny Ashok, Asmara Gabrielle, Nina Wadia and Mandeep Dhillon will be released in April 2017.
We wish Oz every success with the film. Here is the trailer, courtesy of ICON Film Distribution.
