My biggest success is my three wonderful kids!
First time writer Chrisanna Northrup achieved the Hollywood dream, inking a low six-figure deal with Vine Entertainment, for her first screenplay Silver. Victoria Burrows and Scott Boland (Lord of the Rings, Cast Away, King Kong, Polar Express, etc.) were initially hired to cast the film.
Silver is a controversial screenplay, intertwining three true stories, inspired by Northrup’s own grueling experience with a con artist nanny. The story focuses on several major loopholes in the US legal system, that leave a family exposed and a criminal protected. After deception, sex scandals, kidnapping and murder, the story follows a mother’s fight to protect her family.
Chrisanna is looking forward to the opportunities to publicize Silver and inspire families through speaking engagements in communities and on talk shows, sharing how she turned her tragic story into a full feature film. After the sale, Chrisanna was featured in Creative Screenwriting, Variety, and was a guest speaker at the San Diego Film Festival.
