About Bridget Messaros

Growing up in Waldo, OH (which is indeed, a real place), Bridget was involved in everything. Cheerleading, show choir, musical, band, soccer, dance, and 4-H. Having her Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management she was going to be a wedding planner but 3 years ago she auditioned and landed a lead role in a feature film and she got hooked in the entertainment world.

Masterpiece is her first screenplay and she’s learning the editing process is longer than the writing process. This story has been brewing in her mind for the past 8 years but she finally decided to write it down. She has a keen interest in crime mysteries and psychological thrillers.

Also, an avid lover of the outdoors, Bridget often camps for her vacations. Recently traveling out to Yellowstone and backpacking through Grand Teton with her husband. If she had it her way, her dog, Theodore, would be with her always. You can also find Bridget, her husband, and Theodore kayaking on some lakes around the Cleveland area.

Bridget plans to continue writing and acting in the future. Her hopes for Masterpiece is to obtain Hello Sunshine as a producer and bring the story to life in a theater near you.

City of Caves: The White Tiger | Louise Wilding | Script Shop Episode 046

Logline for City of Caves: The White Tiger

"A determined woman with the ability to transform into a tiger, faces down centuries of devastating patriarchal rule alongside her best friend and a werewolf. While a vampire tries to prevent her discovering his secret by any means necessary.

Billi is not a damsel in distress, she’s a surprise, bait, the embodiment of a twist."

About Louise Wilding

Writing mainly in my spare time as I work hard to break into the world of screenwriting.
So far my endeavors have seen me have two separate scrips selected for film festivals in 2017, my first year entering. No bad considering I only started writing scripts late in 2016, when I discovered this format better suited my dyslexia.
I have no formal screenwriting training, so everything I do is self taught and I am always open to constructive help from those who know and understand the industry better.
Currently I write freelance and have many projects live on YouTube.
But my main drive as a writer is to see women better portrayed on screen.
