Writer Biography - Alexandre Malgat

My name is Alexandre Malgat. I am 24 years old.
I currently study English Literature & American Studies at Swansea University, with the intent of pursuing a Masters degree in American History.
Born to a Welsh mother and a French father, I have grown up in the Swansea Area.
I discovered a deep love and passion for film as a child when my father showed me Reservoir Dogs for the first time. Growing up watching films was my film school.
My long term goals are to be successful in the film industry, both as a screenwriter and as a filmmaker, and to make people feel the same way about my work, as I felt when I first saw Reservoir Dogs.

Writer Statement

Paradise Road is the very first feature screenplay I wrote when I was 20 years old. The influence behind the script came from a short film I had written, in which a few years later, I partnered up with a friend to film it on a £60 personal budget.

The script is deeply personal to me, not only because it's the first feature script I've ever written, but because writing films is my passion. Tarantino said it best: “Don’t write what you think people want to read. Find your voice and write about what’s in your heart.”
