Hello. My name is Rachel Reaugh. I am a professional, award-winning screenwriter whose feature-length screenplay LOST was optioned and produced by the film-industry legend, Bruce Logan (Director).
In December 2017, LOST FARE won 'Official Selection - for a true story' by 'Around Films International Film Festival.' It will be screen in various venues during the Barcelona Film Festival 2018.
In December 2017, LOST FARE received an 'Award of Recognition,' by the Hollywood Independent Motion Picture Film Festival. It also awarded the talented, Alexis Rosinsky (who played Freda in LOST FARE), with 'Best Actress!' Truly a well-deserved award!
My screenplays have been praised as being... "richly compelling stories with provocative and unforgettable characters, that resonate with the realities of life and the various shades of gray that we all stumble through." I write all genres. However, my true gift is in character-driven stories that capture the raw and sometimes jagged essence of being human, as well as the unexpected moments of human tenderness from those who appear void of feelings and emotions.
My influences include are (but not limited to): Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Raymond Chandler, Albert Lamorissee, Josh Olson, Diana Ossana, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Martin Scorsese, William Faulkner, John Huston, Alain Resnais, Oliver Stone and Stanley Kubrick.
