I've been writing screenplays since the times of 3 brads and snail mail . A lot of them have made the rounds and gathered interest. A couple of them got optioned. Other ones, not so much. Thanks to the internet, I'm still able to get them out there, on places like Blacklist and Virtual Pitch Fest, and hey, why not, here, as well?
Lost Claus: Leaping Yule Logs! Santa Claus has gone missing! Now what? If you're Tweedle the elf, you hire Nick Flebber, a down-on-his-luck private eye, to investigate and locate this "Lost Claus."
Hitler's Script Laurels...
Hitler's Script: Inspired by true events! In the waning days of WWII, a washed-up movie director in Berlin uses the production of a massive propaganda film to protect himself, then his friends, then finally Jewish prisoners, from the Nazi war machine. Think “Schindler's List” meets “The Producers.”
Faking Reality: Say you’re a high school senior who’s a bit of a loser; how do you up your popularity? Well, Albert decides that if he can get everyone to think he’s the subject of some reality show that’ll do. And it does. For awhile, anyway, in my script “Faking Reality.”
Christmas Carol: A housewife is picked to produce the annual church Christmas pageant. As the show comes together, she comes apart, alienating her cast, friends and family. Must the show go on?
Death by Shakespeare: When a group of acting students come across the original manuscript of “MacBeth” they unleash an ancient Shakespearian curse which begins killing them off one by one.
The Spare: It's the old story: girl meets boy, girl meets clone, girl must save clone from fate as organ donor; a young doctor uncovers the secret clone of a tech millionaire and finds herself helping it escape in a mad chase through the city. Can love at first sight be cloned?
The Peking Duck: A harried secretary takes a job with a seedy private detective and ends up involved with thugs, kidnappers, murderers and an ancient Chinese statue.
Like Magic: think "Abbott & Costello meet Harry Potter." A pair of bumbling magicians come across a set of magical cards and accidentally release an evil warlock from banishment. When the warlock plans for world domination, they have to thwart him with the aid of ancient wizard.
Bump in the Night: A hot-shot reporter and his side kick photographer head out to the site of a horror mass murder for an anniversary story and stumble upon a group filming a horror movie about the murders. Meanwhile, the murderer has escaped and is headed back---
Halloweenies: With Halloween coming, a young boy begins his quest for the perfect costume while dealing with school, decorating, backyard haunted houses, chores, neighborhood crazies, anti-Halloween zealots and dangerous counterfeiters.
Hot Sets: Anti-woke forces attempt to capture a Hollywood studio to make a point. Unfortunately for them, two goofy tour guides evade capture and wind up disrupting their plans for terror.
Island of Frankenstein: A rescue team finds itself on an island inhabited by the classic monsters of yore. Sort of "House of Frankenstein" meets "Jurassic Park."
The Importance of being Ernie: A post-age writer is trying to sell his latest screenplay. It's a teen-comedy and a studio decides to buy it, but mistakenly assumes the writer's an 18-year old boy. So Ken decides to let play it through and enlists the aid of his nephew to fool Hollywood.
The Men From S*W*A*K: The adventures of a pair of industrial spies who work to protect Thriftmart Department Stores. They get assigned to protect an Olympic swimmer with their store sponsorship and end up battling communists out to destroy the world games. It’s a blue-light special version of James Bond.
