That screenplay is now the feature film project called "Over the Crux" from screen writer, Keenan Murray. The talented Webb Pickersgill will be directing the project.
This film is about Tara Mitchell who is a headstrong, athletic co-ed, engaged to the man of her dreams - a cerebral, go-getter who has their future planned out. Unfortunately, the plan doesn't include her pursuing her dream of competitive rock climbing or falling for her mentor/coach, Joel. Throughout the story, she also must battle through the psychological effects of a devastating fall in order to realize her dream of competing professionally in the sport of bouldering against the best rock climbers in the world.
Keenan Murray states:
"My goal with this project is to share the passion, the dedication, the strength, and attitude these climbers have with the rest of the non-climbing world. To show how top climbers in this sport are every much professional athletes as baseball or football players. To open people’s eyes to the incredible dexterity and power required and shown as they work their way up routes using foothold that are practically non-existent and handholds that only lizards would normally grasp. Climbers look at rocks differently. They see holds and routes up the face of rocks normal people cannot see – a crimp here, a lieback there, go to a pinch from the mono-pocket, catch the rail and pull a heel hook to the sloper. It’s all there, you just have to believe and trust yourself. "
The production team is in the process of contacting high profile actors and actresses to play opposite me as my mom and coach. Also, fundraising is a priority at the moment, in order to get the project off the ground.
