Hello Michael! You're experience is incredible, I look forward to seeing everything you bring to stage 32.

Pete Whiting

Michael, I have been mentored by Peter Saphier (Scarface) and have completed a feature length retro action thriller based on UK novel that I own rights too. It has received strong coverage and Marty Katz (Reindeer games) reading team said it was a great a script and seriously considered it. It was a stage 32 semi finalist as well. It may interest you. Also half way through a family/kids film and the first half has also received strong praise. First draft should be complete shortly.

Hi it's a pleasure to meet you. I'm a recent graduate looking to break into the industry with my original TV pilot script. It's about an angry slave in Colonial America is gifted with immortality by a Native American spirit guide and spends the next 200 years experiencing U.S. history trying to find the one who cursed him. PM me if you're interested.

I have a science fiction horror graphic novel that I would like to see adapted into either a webseries or a low budget b movie.

Pete Whiting

Just completed my second screenplay. Already getting some positive feedback. If any producers/directors/studios are seeking a family/comedy with a small budget, get in touch. It is Goonies meets Home Alone (with a little Iron eagle for good measure!)


When a popular teenager and his friends are kidnapped by inept bank robbers, it’s up to the teenager’s not-so-cool twelve year old brother and his group of underdog army cadet friends to save the day.
