1st Draft
In a barren future, an orphan girl befriends a half-tree man who may be the key to saving the world.

"A captivating fantasy thriller filled with magic and intrigue. The writer's grim portrayal of this bleak landscape leaves a powerful impression. The thing that stands out from the start is how the protagonist, subverts the archetype of the typical female heroines. She seems content to live in her cloistered world of adopted family. Yet, circumstances far beyond her control thrust her into a world much bigger, and more dangerous, than she could ever imagine. As a result, she becomes the lens that the audience views this world in, and as it opens up for her so too does it for the reader, creating a natural progression into the complexities of the familiar yet distant world the writer builds in this script. SHADOWODD is a big story, but the heroine's world is initially small, allowing the audience an effective entry point into this universe. The world building feels resolutely solid while the writer sells the scale of the setting while still making it feel real and lived-in".

The Black List

"SHADOWODD is a compelling script. The writer pushes an idea that comes across as sustainable for a series. The writer allows the characters room to breathe, to tell the story with their own voice. This is important because so many writers feel as though it is the job of the writer to tell the story when, in fact, it is the job of the characters to tell it. The prose is tight, easy on the eye and also very easy to visualise and appreciate.  These are the sort of pages that actors and directors appreciate. Conceptually speaking, there is a lot to like here. The writer has created a lively adventure in this curious, dystopia world. The acts each openly support one another, and the result is a story that is well-paced and progresses naturally, without any hindrances to slow or disrupt it. The tension here also works very well, keeps the reader glued into the moment. The writer has a good voice for the genre. The direction is concise, sharp and to the point. We see, with ease, the writer's vision. As well, dialogue also proves to be very good. The characters interact quickly and with relevance. SHADOWODD has a shine".
