About John

"Feel the change, be the change, write the change.".

INT. SUBURBAN HOUSE - DAY
It was a normal, mid-fall day; Year 2014. A MAN, unemployed, lackadaisically takes a break on the couch; His mind starts a fantasy daydream, whipping like a whirlwind as his mind embraces the scenery and the character he's engulfed in. A script. A story, embracing elements of life had begun to take shape. Without warning, he looks up; He thinks, "What if I? ...". He gasps...

_________________________________________________________________

That was the moment my love for writing began. That script, which I ended up finishing the same year, was "Moments of Forever"; The first script I had ever finished, and most definitely nowhere near the last.

I have continued to write since than, writing various different scripts as you can see on my profile, and continue until this very day.

Below are scripts I am working on or have worked on as a lone writer, as this is not a group or shared profile; also not a site profile using a pen name. This is actually John Michael German's profile from the start.. If/Whenever I would have any type of group, team or writing partner, their name or names would be posted wherever they helped write. I have many more ideas behind the scenes that I haven't even started yet. Whenever anyone of these wouldn't be owned by myself in terms of being sold or optioned or however, I would mention that next to the individual script.

All scripts listed, including loglines, synopsis's and PDF's are for review only; If you are interested in any of these please contact, myself, John German.

A simple phrase or word can be a heartfelt message that may brighten your mind to all that could and can be. There are roughly around 27 words within and without this book.

  • Drawlphabet

    Drawlphabet
    Print Author Drawlphabet is a very simplistic book to bring out the imaginative spirit in a young learner. While drawing letters within the alphabet, they will also draw little drawings from the letters. This was left very black and white so you could add color wherever and however you would like. Think of this as your own and you are helping to finish it. Drawlphabet was simplistically done so that most anyone could draw the letters and the drawings regardless of how well you can or can't draw. The whole point, as mentioned, is to bring out the imaginative spirit of what could be.
