The Follow-Along Screenwriting Podcast
Coming Soon

Plot Matrix is a follow-along screenwriting podcast hosted by collaborators Brian Smail III and Jackson Casimiro. Over the course of a season we discuss characters, plot, and themes to develop a movie idea into a script. Listeners are invited into the writers’ room with available script downloads, polls, and call-ins. As a screenplay is taking shape, we start developing pitching materials, pulling references for cast, locations, and imagery. And with a finished script and deck, hopefully it sells to a studio.

A group of forgotten seniors at a private high school create a mafia-esque scheme of stealing test answers and selling them for money. When one student attempts to get the better of them, the student mob has to figure out how to deal with him.

diomede

In one of the most isolated communities in the nation, seventy Native Alaskans face the social and existential struggles of life in a rapidly changing climate. This is the island of Little Diomede.

Connor Smyers

Director

Connor is an expressive director and prolific cinematographer. He fell in love with documentaries as a method of advocacy, using film to give people a voice and tell stories before they’re over. Since our first trip he’s worked to deepen his relationships with the Diomeders, building trust with our key subjects. As a veteran behind the camera, he’s serving as our Director of Photography on our tiny crew.

Jackson Casimiro

Producer

Jackson founded and runs Lunation Lab, the production company representing Diomede. He brings a lifetime of experience in the outdoors, meaning he can produce for the challenges of shooting in a hostile climate. On our trips, he’s working as our photographer and producer. As EP, he’ll guide the film towards mass appeal, ensuring its message reaches as many people as possible.
