Hi! My name is Clemente Esparza, II
The majority of my writing and my ideas stem from music that I am listening to or music that I have heard. In a sense, I want to feel the mood and the atmosphere of the story, before I start making a concept that can work in conjunction with the music. Somewhat making an unofficial soundtrack for what I am going to write. I do this mainly because I want to feel what the character feels through the music I am listening to at the moment.
The genre that my screenplays are based in is Horror/Thriller, something with a reason to the fear and not just slasher or monster based. Growing up as a horror fan, I loved all of the classics but I wanted to focus on the feeling of fear, terror, madness. The things that will drive you into insanity. I think writing/ creating stories like this stems from my fear of losing my mind.
Currently, I am working on a 6 Episode Mini-Series based on H.P. Lovecraft's 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth'. I have 4 of the 6 completed at the moment.
My story is essentially the lead up to the tale, Shadow Over Innsmouth, following a young Zadok Allen, Anna Tilton, a young Barnabas Marsh and Obed Marsh. I am doing a bunch of research to get this series right by following the source material and making sure that, if someone who is a fan of Lovecraft's 'Cthulhu Mythos' were to read these stories, they can easily fit them into the mythos. Also, I'm not catering specifically to the Lovecraft fan but fans of the horror genre and the casual series watcher who enjoys a great story.
I am from the Bay Area and I graduated from De Anza College in 2019 with an AA in Film/Tv Production and an AA in Film/Tv Screenwriting.
