Albert’s feature-length sci-fi drama screenplay Incarnations has been announced as a quarterfinalist in the Fall 2021 WeScreenplay Diverse Voices Screenwriting Lab.
Judges’ comments include: “INCARNATIONS DELIVERS ON ALL THE BEST PARTS OF A GOOD CEREBRAL SPECULATIVE FICTION PIECE. IT DOESN’T SHY AWAY FROM THE HUMAN QUESTIONS RAISED BY THE PREMISE, INSTEAD USING THE CONCEPT TO GROUND A COMPELLING CHARACTER-DRIVEN NARRATIVE FRONT TO END… THIS IS A WELL-CRAFTED AND DEEPLY INTELLIGENT PIECE OF FICTION, THOUGHT-PROVOKING IN ALL THE RIGHT WAYS.”
WeScreenplay Diverse Voices encourages stories told by writers of color, women writers, writers with disabilities, writers over 40, writers in the LGBTQ+ community, and any other voices that have historically been ignored by Hollywood. Semiinalists will be announced on July 7, 2021; and the Grand Prize and category winners will be announced on August 15, 2021. Three to four winners will participate in mentorship and meetings with industry professionals in the Screenwriting Lab.
Incarnations, written by Albert, is about an agnostic biologist who discovers startling scientific evidence revealing the fate of his deceased four-year-old son, launching him on a spiritual quest where life meets death. The project was previously named a finalist for the Launch Pad Feature Competition, Creative Screenwriting Unique Voices Screenplay Competition, and Screencraft Film Fund.
