CMRTVN praises Allal El Alaoui awarded in Ifan - The best Script -

The film The Will- Our friend and colleague of Allal El Alaoui has won the award for Best Screenplay at the Festival of Arab Short Film AZROU / IFRANE 2013 15th edition under the theme "Film Environment & Renewable Energy"
which was unrolling of 15 AU 18 August 2013

"The Will" is not only a direction, but a meaning that gives rise to several questions at once, and that only the viewer can find the answers, the meaning. The will, short film written and directed by Allal El Alaoui and produced by SNRT is also an approach that the actor involved in this work and the writer of the latter can find meaning.

As Fatima Bassour actress chosen to play the role of the wife Zahra of the  great actor Ben Brahim in the film "the will" and with a suggestive reading deepens the filmmaker Mr. Allal El Alaoui, I will say that is a tribute to Moroccan Sahrawi nomads connoisseurs of the great desert and its history is indeed the representations of our history and the history of our beautiful country that is Morocco.

And starting from this original presentation of lifestyle and these gents is to bring the maximum possible that lifestyle Moroccan viewer the choice of Mr. Allal El Alaoui this thematic objective was to awaken in those who view the movie and one that has contributed to the development of that feeling of patriotism and citizenship.

That thereafter the viewer and participant in the making of this film has the feeling of being one of the characters or all characters at once, as long as the place of the events of this film is involved each Moroccan soul of its existence.

The director of the short film "Children of the Sun" was chosen to present to the Moroccan public beautiful landscape as "Tinfou" and "Ark Lihoudi" as well as other landscapes
of Moroccan Sahara, particularly in areas of city ​​of Zagora.

Mr. Allal El Alaoui also chose to share the natural beauty of this region through the viewer to be able to discover and enjoy and fell in love with the landscape as a traveler, a tourist who contemplates for the first time.

A vast desert, a magical sand, every golden grain tells a story, a tale of wisdom. And when the wind blows, a painting of a majestic natural beauty draws on these dunes that even the masterpiece of the most talented artist can never match the beauty.

Le film -TESTAMENT - de Notre Ami et collègue Allal el alaoui a remporte le prix de meilleur scenario au festival du monde arabe du court-métrage AZROU/IFRANE 2013 15ème édition sous le Thème "Ciné Environnement & Énergie renouvelable"
qui s'est deroulé du 15 AU 18 AOUT 2013

« Le testament » n’est pas seulement un sens mais une signification qui donne naissance à plusieurs questions à la fois ; que seul le spectateur peut trouver les réponses, le sens. Le testament, court- métrage écrit et réalisé par Allal El Alaoui et produit par la SNRT, est également une approche que l’acteur participant à ce travail et le scénariste de ce dernier peut trouver la signification.

Comme étant Fatima Bassour, actrice choisie pour jouer le rôle de Zahra la femme du grand acteur Ben Brahim dans ce film « le testament » et avec une lecture approfondit des suggestifs du cinéaste Mr Allal El Alaoui, Je dis que le testament est un hommage aux nomades sahraoui marocains connaisseurs du grand désert et de son histoire qui n’est en effet que la représentations de notre histoire et l’histoire de notre beau pays qui est le Maroc.

Et partant de cette présentation original du mode de vie de ces gents et le fait de rapprocher le maximum possible ce mode de vie au spectateur marocain, le choix de Mr Allal El Alaoui de cette thématique avait comme objectif d’éveiller chez celui qui regard le film et celui qui a participé à l’élaboration de ce dernier le sentiment du patriotisme et de la citoyenneté.

Pour que par la suite le spectateur et le participant à la réalisation de ce film aura le sentiment d’être l’un des personnages du film ou tous les personnages à la fois, du moment que le lieu des événements de ce film est partie prenante de chaque marocain de son âme de son existence.

Le réalisateur du court- métrage « les enfants du soleil » a choisie de présenter au grand public marocain de très beau paysage comme « Tinfou » et « Ark Lihoudi » ainsi que d’autre paysage du grand Sahara marocain et particulièrement dans les régions de la ville de Zagoura.

Mr Allal El Alaoui a également choisi de partager la beauté des paysages de cette région à travers le spectateur pour pouvoir découvrir et apprécier et tombé amoureux de ces paysages comme un voyageur, un touriste qui les contemple pour la première fois.

Un désert immense, un sable magique, chaque grain doré raconte une histoire, un conte, de la sagesse. Et quand le vent souffle, un tableau d’une beauté naturellement majestueuse se dessine sur ces dunes que même le chef d’œuvre de l’artiste plus talentueux ne pourra jamais égaler cette beauté.

Et Fatima Bassour en jouant le rôle de Zahra dans la scène dans la quelle elle est enterrée dans le sable ne restant visible de son corps que la tête, je sentais la profondeur et la force des répliques du scénario que je disais. « Zahra le signe » attachée à ses racines et à sa terre malgré le jugement atroce et le regard des yeux qui la jugé. Le serpent ‘Cobra’ qui vient lui aussi pour participer à ce tableau en se mettant à coté de sa tête seule visible dans le sable, non pour marquer sa présence mais pour dire « n’ayez pas peur Sahara je suis là, pour vous protéger et vous défendre ».Pour que Zahra lance un crie en fixant tous les pressant pour dire :

Le testament d’ Allal c’est mon testament pour vous ;
Mon histoire et sa gloire c’est la votre et entre vos mains ;
Ayez conscience de l’ampleur de l’affaire ;
Garder le testament ;
Le Sahara c’est votre pays ;
préserver votre héritage ; — avec Allal El Alaoui.

The Business of Screenwriting: “Why we hate writers”

The Business of Screenwriting: “Why we hate writers”

August 1st, 2013 by 

Today we have a guest post from Hollywood producer Max Millimeter. As usual this is a transcription of a recording Max made up at his Laurel Canyon home:
Okay, the God’s honest truth is this: Basically we hate you guys.
Now lemme drill down on that.
By “you guys,” I mean screenwriters.
By “we,” I mean producers and studio execs. Agents and managers don’t count ‘coz they make their livelihoods off you guys although, trust me, there are plenty of times when they think, “Jeezus God, why am I representing this schmuck?”
You can be whiny, you can be irritating, you can be stubborn, you can be fucking stupid. But that’s not why we hate you.
We hate you ‘coz you can write.
See, we can’t. And the fact we can’t and you can… that eats at us.
Know why? ‘Coz you can come up with an original idea. You can figure out a story. You can pound out pages and end up with script. And that means you are in control. That story is yours. You own it. There’s nothing to get in the way of you typing FADE IN to you typing FADE OUT.
We can not control actors and their moods.
We can not control directors and their visions.
We can not control studios hiring and firing.
We can not control “creative differences.”
We can not control a green light turning into a red light.
We can not control a tsunami, hurricane or other act of God smashing our sets.
We can not control labor strikes.
We can not control the starlet suddenly falling madly in love with… how shall I put it… a prodigiously amorous producer sending her swooning over the moon, which pisses off her numbnutz co-star who had the hots for said hottie, plunging him into a funk and the production into hiatus.
Okay, that was a bad career choice. But my loins still tingle from that particular belly ride.
Where was I? Okay, yeah. The thing is we can’t really control a movie. It’s like a roller coaster on crack without the tracks. But you? You can write any goddammed thing you want. You have that freedom, that creativity, that power to make a story.
And we hate that.
I tried writing a script once. Some thieves, they’re gonna break into a bank, right. But instead of robbing the joint, they gotta return the cash. Or something like that, I can’t remember. Whatever the hell it was, I thought the idea was hot shit. And I was talking to Eddie’s people, Rodney’s people, Whoopi’s people, everybody pumped. Action comedy ensemble. Pure gold.
So I say, “Hey, it’s my idea, why the hell don’t I write it?” I fiddled with it here, futzed with it there, then went away to Palm Springs and locked myself up for a weekend to pound out Act One. I was completely convinced this was a smash.
Did a table reading. Invited Eddie’s people, Rodney’s people, Whoopi’s people. You know, give ‘em a taste of this hot throbbing hit. Sure that would lock ‘em into the project and next stop? Box office champ!
Not one laugh. Zero. Deadsville.
They despised it. I mean actively, big-time repulsed by my ever single word. Rodney’s people? I kid you not, they changed their goddammed phone number on account of that crap draft just so I couldn’t reach ‘em.
I was blinded by my own bull shit. The thing is, I can tell you what’s wrong when it’s your story. But when it’s my story, I don’t know squat. One of life’s great mysteries, but there it is.
That’s why we sit where we sit, and you sit where you sit. We can’t write. You can. And that pisses us off. ‘Coz the fact is, we need you.
So guys, whenever you’re in a meeting with a studio exec or a producer, after the assistants Chad or Ashley have delivered your bottled water, after all the opening chit-chat and schmoozing and blowing smoke and what-not, you gotta realize the people smiling and nodding their heads at you…
Secretly we loathe you.
‘Coz you can write a story. And we fucking can’t.
The Business of Screenwriting is a weekly series of GITS posts about living life as a screenwriter in Hollywood. Max Millimeter is a veteran filmmaker and known around town as “Hollywood Movie Producer Extraordinaire.” Today’s Max Fact: Favorite actress? Hedy Lamarr. “Are you kidding me? I’m watching ‘Ziegfield Girl’ and I’m losing my mind over this gal. To this day, every movie I see, I’m hoping and praying to see the next Hedy Lamarr.”
