About Nicholas

2002 to Present: 
Dedicated to writing archetypal screenplays focused on universal human experiences with the goal of making the audience think. Motion pictures allow the story to draw on the raw emotions of the audience. It is time to raise the bar through interesting characters without relying on worn out cliches and boring templates used since Aristotle’s time. I aim for brilliant, original stories with an imaginative tone finished with an unexpected twist.

I have completed eight length screenplays for the movie industry and entered the following script competitions:

Screencraft Action Script Competition
Moondance International
WriteMovies.com
Mythworks
Pulsar Sci-Fi Screenplay Contest
Creative World Awards
Blue Cat Screenplay Competition
Etc.

Currently, the following two scripts are listed on InkTip.com and SellAScript.com.

GOD of GAP

Positive feedback or finalist in script competitions. Overall point score 8.7/10. Premise, Theme, Voice, and Originality score 10.

“This particular script is clearly the work of an experienced screenwriter who has a knowledge and love of the craft. The concept and premise is original and the narrative is engaging and thought-provoking. Excellent marketability potential. The work is appealing to a wide audience and certainly more than enough to hook the reader. Great job!”

“The basic premise works exceptionally well. The setup of intertwined mythology, history, biology and physics leading to an ultimate truth, along with an increasingly popular concept, and the sheer scope of the script’s conclusion is ambitious and thought-provoking”

“Ultimately, the story ends in an appropriate and thought-provoking manner, one full of excellent and exciting twists, fitting for the script and its narrative. The writer manages to keep the action moving things along, without any injected melodrama or cliché. The dilemmas are wrapped up nicely before the great conclusion of the script, capping off a solid and seriously intelligent narrative arc that begins with a great and original premise.”

HUG of a LIFETIME

Review and feedback from The 2013 PAGE Awards Script Services with the following comments:

“It is laugh-out-loud funny at times. Since dialogue is one of the biggest lures for getting bankable talent involved with a project, this is a definite plus.”

“Since the leads are strong, and the dialogue is good, it seems like this script’s strengths lie exactly where they need to be in order to get traction toward production.”

“The script works equally well as both a romance, and a corporate drama/thriller. As a romance, it’s a very sweet project. The love and understanding Michael and Isabelle bring to their relationship give the script a ton of heart, and makes us deeply root for these two characters.”
