Written by lifelong actor and creative writer Geoffrey Gould, Private Number is a dark-comedy short film script with horror and suspense overtones.
Its premise is based on one of the creepier aspects of the paranormal: an actual unexplained paranormal phenomenon, but here with Geoffrey Gould's wit and dark humoured spin on it.
A member of the Hollywood based film collective We Make Movies, Geoffrey workshopped the short script at one of their public table-read nights; one the first feedback comment received was from the group's board of directors head: "I think we just heard one of the winners of our next script competition." Another comment was from a fellow writer that the script's concise story has "zero percent fat."
Geoffrey's script for Bucky was one of their four winners of the group's 2nd annual script competition, providing a budget for it to be made.
Shortly thereafter, unfortunately, taking advantage of the 2020 CCP Virus, the California governor and Los Angeles mayor would cripple the Industry. While Bucky was a bottle-script (meaning a single location), Private Number had two major locations; an exterior location for filming during the day, and a quick scene shortly after nightfall, then one interior which could be filmed that evening, as it would only be a few set-ups.
With the state in thrall to the overblown hype of a virus far less virulant that was being falsely conveyed, for the exterior scene the main cemetery Geoffrey would want to use might be/remain unavailable.

So far Private Number has won Best Script at six festivals: the Creepy Tree Film Festival (CTFF), the Wallachia International Film Festival, the Hollywood Blood Horror Festival, the New Cinema - Lisbon Monthly Film Festival. and it first win being at the Hollywood Art and Movie Awards, held in Santa Monica.
The script also received a positive review at PixelsGarage
