2017 Big Break Category Winner Kevin Bachar stopped by the Write
On podcast to discuss his new feature, The
Inhabitant, starring Dermot Mulroney and Leslie Bibb.
"It's a relative of Lizzie Borden set in modern times," says
Bachar, "and she starts experiencing visions of Lizzie Borden,
starts getting feelings of hurting her family. The question is, is
this a sort of demonic possession? Is it schizophrenia? What's
going on here?"
Bachar also shares the secret of how he transitioned from filming content for National Geographic to writing feature screenplays: "I think it's finding any time where you can actually get in front of the laptop. [When I lived in New York] I used to commute into the city, and that was a solid hour on the Long Island Railroad... I made a conscious decision to use this hour to write. and that was it. So that's 10 hours a week that I was able to just really focus on writing. Any time you have that free time, write."
The Inhabitant is coming to theaters later this year.
