MARK A. KREKELER
Mark is serious about writing, particularly screenplays. Screenplays are a craft in themselves. Mark’s strength is in organizing the concept from start to finish using outlines, index cards and storyboarding to plot the story.
Don’t let the “Master Clown” award from McDonald’s Corporation fool you. For over 20 years Mark ran his own company to produce educational shows for schools and church groups. Now he takes those life experiences and his business degree to writing screenplays.
Mark’s first script is titled “The Dance Card,” making its way to various script competitions in hopes of being produced.
Three other stories are getting storyboarded and into Final Draft.
one fault in storytelling, “I tend to overthink the characters
development.” For instance, in Dance
Card, the good looking antagonist, ADAM TYRE, 17, has several things wrong with
him that gives the audience clues. The “Prince of Tyre” in the Bible is really
a self-absorbed prig whom we get the word “tyranny” from. And the number 6
jersey is not only an illegal number in basketball but also represents “the
devil” or “sinful man” in the Bible.
