Once completed, Target List, a full feature film, will be a high-energy, fast-paced medical-action-thriller about the creation of a life-saving healthcare instrument and big pharma’s attempt to suppress the technology.
Let me explain how the creators of this project took the story from a novel to a feature film that will begin production in April 2022.
What if I told you there was a way to eradicate all animal and human diseases in a matter of minutes? What if a technology existed that could eliminate illnesses of any type in people without introducing chemical products or making surgical incisions? How amazing would that be?
I am not writing about cutting out diseased tissues (surgical procedures) to resolve an illness by removing physical matter. I am writing about an instrument that could heal the body using radio frequencies. I am writing about a wave-altering-nanoparticle-disrupter –WAND.
Target List is a story centered around a conspiracy theory within medicine that subscribes to the idea that the pharmaceutical industry is willing to hold back and even destroy healthcare technologies that might help humanity have a better expression of health for the pursuit of monetary gain.

When MJ Palo and I began transforming my 2019 novel, TheTarget List, into a full-length
screenplay; we decided to make one significant change to the story. We both agreed that the main protagonist needed to be a female in her thirties. Clyde Daniel was the protagonist in the novel — not the case in the movie script. We also made other modifications to the project.
The storyline, plot, and anything else is fluid and ever-changing when writing fiction. This screenplay was no exception to that rule.
Having no prior experience with writing screenplays, I had to rely heavily on the expertise of my co-writer. I learned a lot from working with MJ Palo. She transformed a good story into a
tremendous full-length movie script.
After we finished the screenplay, MJ convinced me that we needed to shoot a short pilot or proof of concept film to attract investors to make the feature film.
Watching that process occur was a fantastic personal experience. When the pilot aired on Amazon Prime and other platforms in the summer of 2021, I appreciated again the many talented people who had invested time and finances to bring the Target List story to fruition.
Then I became deathly ill and was placed on a ventilator for three weeks. I remained in a hospital bed for 95 days and underwent seven surgical procedures to stop internal hemorrhaging. I died and came back to life. When I awakened, I had to relearn how to use my hands and walk. Six weeks of intense physical therapy followed before I could walk on my own.
I returned from death’s doorstep to be with my family, and to make our movie. I expressed to MJ that we needed to do whatever was necessary to complete our project, and that’s exactly what she did.
We are now a week away from the feature film going into production. The filming of the full-length movie will undoubtedly become one of the most exciting experiences of my creative writing career.
Target List, a feature film, would have been impossible to create without Mad Wife Productions, especially Andrew Arguello and MJ Palo. Thank you so much for taking a chance on the story!
