Daniel L. Perez is a male 23 year old from Jackson, Michigan. He grew up on a farm southeast of Jackson and went to school in the small town of Napoleon. After graduation he gained a scholarship to Jackson Community Collegea and earned an Associates Degree in Electronics Engineering Technology.
WHAT DID HE DO TO WRITE THIS SCRIPT AND WHAT MADE HIM DO IT?
Dan began his journey in writing this script back in February 1992 after watching Terminator 2: Judgment Day on videocassette. After thinking about contradictions in the story and why the story wasn't finished with the second film, Dan began browsing through the library at his local community college.
At first he began to look at books on how to write treatments for screeplays. He penned out his first treatment with pen and paper and ended up with eighty pages of one of the worst treatments ever written. But he didn't give up.
After 3 years and eleven months of work, rewrites and turned down submissions to several areas of the business, he found the help of a producer who runs small studio in Hollywood. The producer's advice has helped Dan to begin fixing all the small plot abberations and errors.
WHERE DID HE WRITE IT?
In the beginning, the treatment was written at home with pen and paper. At college, he used the IBM computers in a computer lab to type out the treatment. Later after acquiring his own computer, a Macintosh, the format was moved to the Macwrite Pro format.
WHEN DID HE WRITE IT?
Starting in February 1992 to the present.
WHY DID HE WRITE IT?
After watching Terminator 2, Dan noticed the story contained a paradox that would allow the story to continue. He is picking up where Cameron left off with T2 in his script with new characters and an *original* ending for the series.
