NY Elite: Can you tell us about the work that you participated with at ISC? What is the story about?
Bo Apostolache: Through the ISC festival, my screenplay, entitled ‘DELILAH AND NAPOLEON’, was picked as festival finalist.
NY Elite: Can you tell us yourself and your artistic talents?
Bo Apostolache: The story is about an exotic dancer and a Greek Gypsie who meet at a strip club, fall in love, and before they know it, are on the run from authorities. This is a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde, with some Romeo and Juliet vibes. Really well woven story.
I’m basically a late-blooming writer who loves writing. I enjoy creating stories from my vivid imagination. Everything I write, every single scene, is created from a moment in my life’s experiences.
NY Elite: What scripts have you written so far?
Bo Apostolache: Besides this script, ‘Delilah and Napoleon’, I have also written 3 feature screenplays (One Night in The Rain, The Blessed War, and Poles) and 1 short screenplay, (Poles 2).
NY Elite: Top 3 favorite projects that you have been involved in?
Bo Apostolache: My favorite project of all time is Poles, the short film I wrote and directed in 2019. This intricate and delicate story is based upon one man’s real-life journey through mental illness. I personally have family member(s) who suffer from bipolar disorder and wanted to make a film that brought light to an underfunded idea that helping those with mental illness is the right thing to do.
NY Elite: What type of scripts do you want to write in your career?
Bo Apostolache: If I ever have writing as a career instead of a hobby, I hope to create stories that are impactful.
NY Elite: As a writer, what is the most important aspect of building a character?
Bo Apostolache: The way I create a character is by visualizing someone I already know and starting with that to build the base of the character. From there it’s just a matter of using intricate storytelling to cement a character’s true identity.
