"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. 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.

Let The Feelings Write
Print (Drama) Author Within a homeless community living as best they can through their current situations, comes mysterious disappearances that begin to take hold of their once rather quiet communities. Within these communities lives Clayton, and his homeless family within the homeless community. One of Clayton's family members disappears and leaves behind something he normally never would. Due to this, Clayton's life twists into a role of a self-made detective, where he begins to try, and figure out why these are happening, and who is behind the disappearances. As he weaves his way through the many different avenues trying to uncover information that could not only help find and save his family member, but others in the homeless community who begin to wonder when they will be next. Clayton's work starts to draw attention from Deryk and Jalen, members of the high society. These members, unknowingly to Clayton, begin monitoring Clayton's behaviors due to his unknown status within their community. As Clayton dives more deeply into the mysteriousness surrounding the homeless, the high society members, Deryk and Jalen, begin uncovering Clayton's undercover work, which brings about events that spiral into a fast-paced struggle for one to keep the faith to continue, whereas the others race to terminate the single infestations motivational hunger.
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.
