Personal Summary

Hello! My name is Felipe Belfort Marques. I'm a screenwriter from Sao Paulo, Brazil who is eager to be a part of your team in any assistant position. 

During my internship at QC Entertainment, I learned skills essential for the assistant position. I am able to roll calls and keep schedules in check, and am able to deal with situations in a professional and efficient manner. I was recognized for my ability to cover material, effectively proofreading and critiquing scripts at a fast pace that didn’t hinder the quality of said coverage.

I also have experience in both writing and producing for television, having worked in writing and executive production positions on Boston University’s own TV Station. As a former writer and executive producer for BUTV10’s Shadows, I not only have experience in writing scripts for a fiction-based episodic series, but have also created episode production schedules, overseen casting auditions, and led the writers’ room in weekly meetings. I have also taken numerous courses in screenwriting and television industry, as well as creative and fiction writing. On top of this, I have written over thirty film, television and theater reviews for Boston University’s Daily Free Press, showing a deep understanding of these three fields as industries and art forms, and applying this knowledge to my screenwriting.
