Inked in Blood | Paul Corricelli

Logline for Inked in Blood

"A tortured man returns to the town he ran away from as a child to exact his revenge on all those who wronged him and face the one man he fears the most... his father."

About Paul Corricelli

I spent a good part of my youth moving around the country. I’ve lived in Maryland, Florida, Texas, back to Maryland, Northern California, Illinois, and Finally Southern California (Los Angeles), where I’ve been for thirty-one years.

I grew up wanting to be a comic book artist/storyteller, or rock star (drummer). In my twenties, I dropped out of art school to pursue fame and fortune and convinced my bandmates to pack up their lives in Chicago and move with me to Los Angeles. I loved being on stage and performing. I loved the attention, but not the spotlight... I should probably seek professional help for that.

We came close, but in the end, it didn’t work out. The band broke up, and I was tired of being a poor musician - it’s no joke, I lived on Ramen and Mac and Cheese. Through a friend, I got a job in the film industry, and I’ve been there ever since.
I never gave up on my artistic endeavors. Even after moving to LA, I still took art, animation, and photography classes. I wrote hundreds of songs while in my band (that I never showed anyone), and continued to write and draw my own comic book stories.

It was on the set of Deadwood that I was inspired to write screenplays. Day after day of watching David Milch work, his process, his grasp of character, story, and his interaction with the actors, really opened my eyes to a new world of storytelling.

Early on in my writing career, I optioned a screenplay that I wrote with a good friend (JP). The Inked In Blood Short is adapted from my feature screenplay by the same name. The Inked short has placed in the final round of several short screenplay competitions and Inked In Blood the feature has won several contests, including the Table Read My Screenplay - Park City, the WildSound contest, the 2017 Depth of Field contest, and the Festival of Horror. In 2018 Inked was a finalist in the Inroads Screenwriting Fellowship and this year it is a Finalist in the 2019 Underground Indie Film Fest, and the Table Read - Hollywood competition.

My screenplay “A Life Unravelled,” is a Finalist in the 5th Annual WideScreen Film Festival.
