Wrote the screenplay feature “Done Deal” The screenplay “Done Deal” is a story based on a fictitious Real Estate Firm in a small coastal village. The play is centred on Bob Dawson (the primary protagonist); a middle aged “sleazy agent” with a mantra of “whatever it takes” to get the deal done. The firm is owned by a 40 something, good looking, businessman with a passion for horses and women. He leaves Bob to run the firm basically unchecked and under his stewardship the other agents in the firm have compromised their values in a game of survival against the opposing agent.
Unique traits: Ability to work with all people. Able to produce creative work on small budgets.
