In 2010 after a chance encounter with Screenwriter Blake Snyder, I switched from writing novels to writing screenplays.
To date I have completed three full-length feature scripts, five short comedy/horror and suspense scripts, a short documentary, and five commercials for the annual Superbowl Doritos Commercial Contest. My first two feature-length scripts have been a Finalist (2011) and a First Place winner (2012) in the Pacific Northwest Literary contest. My short scripts, The Screamwriter and Itch were produced were filmed by a local indie production company and are on YouTube. I'm currently working on feature length script number four.
I've taught workshops on story structure and screenplay format. And I facilitate a monthly meeting of writers. We call ourselves Wordherders. Check us out at: http://www.wordherders.com/. .

Film (Short, Comedy and Horror) Writer When flower-lover, Dexter Nerbit, a man on a life-long quest to discover the perfect flower scent attends an exhibit of exotic plants, he can't help himself and sneaks across a small rope barricade to smell the flowers of a newly discovered species. After all, what could it hurt? But when he is stung by the aggressive plant he discovers a small red welt that begins to itch... and to spread. Creams and lotions provide temporary relief from the maddening itching that follows, but when small red lesions begin to flower he realizes he's in more trouble than he ever thought possible and he is forced to seek medical help from the quirky botanist who discovered the plant.

Both his agent and his wife agree that this is the best thing for his career. Un- fortunately, the Zombies who have starred in each of Jeremy's movies disagree and try to prevent him from killing them off. The struggle that follows has everyone wondering if Jeremy has lost his mind; perhaps they were all in his head... Or perhaps not. Written by Jeremy Langdon
