About Maurice

Email: storytelling200 (gmail)

I'm an experienced screenwriter, commercial writer, treatment writer, pitch deck designer, and script reader/doctor. I'm also part of the Stage 32 Lounge Crew in the Screenwriting lounge.

I mainly write micro-budget scripts and low-budget scripts (mostly Thriller, Horror, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy).

I love to write strong, flawed characters and unique stories. Most of my main characters are females.

I write quickly, I work well on a team, and I'm very detail-oriented.

I've written many scripts over twelve years (commercials, shorts, features, teleplays, book-to-script adaptations, PSAs, and anthologies).

I've written scripts based on the ideas of various directors and producers, and I've rewritten their scripts also.

I've written coverage for scripts (for writers, directors, and producers).

I co-wrote “Jackpot" (produced feature script) with director/producer Justin Smith of Jaylin Films.

I wrote a short anthology story titled "Candy Ban" for the Horror book, "31 Nights of Halloween." This book was published by Rainstorm Press.

I received three screenwriting jobs in 2020. The first job involved me rewriting and proofreading a Horror feature script (this job came through Stage 32). The second job involved me rewriting and proofreading a Romance/Drama feature script. The third job involved me writing a Psychological Horror/Thriller/Contained Thriller short script (this job came through Stage 32).

I sold four short scripts to a producer in May 2020. I met the producer on Stage 32.

Throughout 2021 and 2022, I received many jobs/projects on Stage 32 and Upwork (writing a commercial, rewriting a short teleplay for a producer, rewriting short scripts, editing projects, making pitch decks, etc.).

Anthony D. Thomas was my manager (great manager), Now, I find my own jobs/projects and pitch scripts/projects myself.
