What is your project about?
My project is about something most people can relate to which is healing from the past. We've all heard the saying " time heals all wounds" and my project encourages the audience to rethink that saying. Marcus had a very troubling and traumatizing childhood and he believes he's over it because several years have passed. But his unhealed wounds manifest themselves in his career, his love life and his ability to forgive. Marcus' journey to healing highlights the importance of mental health and how it can affect relationships and wellbeing.

What are your ambitions with your project?
My ambitions with this project are to get it filmed and produced. This project has the potential to appeal to people of all races, genders and backgrounds. I am currently working on getting the funding necessary to film, produce and advertise my screenplay so it can be accessible to the world!

Why should distributors buy your film?
Distributors should buy my film because it has a message that will resonate with the masses. The stigma surrounding mental health is slowly starting to dissipate but we still have a long way to go and this film is a big step in the right direction. It explores how unhealed wounds from the past can ruin relationships, careers and outlooks on life. This exploration of whether or not all wounds are healed by time is intriguing, entertaining and dramatic. Distributors who are looking for a unique film that will capture audiences' attention and take them on a roller coaster of emotions will love The Wounds Time Didn't Heal.

Which topics interest you the most?
The topics that interest me the most are the power of forgiveness, mental health and relationships. I believe all three of those topics are related. The quality of any relationship will be tested by the ability to forgive, let go of the past and heal from it. I love creating stories that have deep, meaningful impacts and are also entertaining. Mental health has always been important to me because I suffered from depression since childhood. It is my life's mission to let people know there is hope.
