Marler passed it to Bhramayan, a colleague. Bhramayan said the book was meant for him.
“He (Marler) knows I’m a devoted Christian and all about meaningful, positive and inspiration stories,” Bhramayan said. “He told me I should read her book. Once I did, I fell in love with it.”
Bhramayan began communicating with Barfield right away, and after he completed “Tinker,” the two began collaborating on “The Well” screenplay.
“I’m proud of Michelle,” he said. “Although she was intimidated with the software we used to collaborate with to write the screenplay, she overcame her fear and dove right in, helping me adapt the book on Final Draft software.”
The screenplay was sent out for general feedback and was returned with eight laurels.
The recognition received at film festivals is important, said Bhramayan, whose work has won 19 best-of awards and an additional 25 nominations for “Tinker.”
