Fire Mountain (107 Pages)
Screenwriters: Anthony Salamon, Ronnie S. Riskalla, Jeremy Span
Australia (with frequent trips to Iceland)
Synopsis: When a volcano in Iceland erupts, a group of fishermen must band together to help evacuate their town and fight for their homes.
Inspiration For Screenplay: Our inspiration drew from the incredible true story of this eruption at Eldfell, Iceland. It was a chapter of our history no one really knew too much about.
A motivating theme that hung over our drive to write the script was in finding ways to celebrate the human spirit at times of tragedy and being able to share that story. Interest in our script began picking up in Iceland where the events took place. We were able to learn more about the events that transpired from footage and first hand accounts which only gave us more drive to need to tell this incredible story of survival.
