Awards and Recognition
Snake Bite was a second rounder in the 2020 Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition, “a distinction only achieved by less than 20% of this year’s submissions.”
Description works really well to set the stage of danger and tension all along the way. The script has a great flow to it. We’re quickly caught up in the characters and story and the end comes to a solid resolution.
SNAKE BITE has a clear voice and tone, and it creates a compelling narrative that has high-stakes action. The world is well-built, the protagonists are likable, the villains are engaging and fun, and the pacing is good.
SNAKE BITE is a action thriller with an interesting protagonist at the center and explores the messy aftermath of a former undercover agent transporting someone affiliated with the mission that almost killed her. It has a unique quality in that perspective while also having familiar tropes and character archetypes from predecessors like CON AIR and DIE HARD.Excerpts from 2020 Austin Film Festival Competition Notes
