I have been writing features for eight years. Comedy is my genre of choice. I greatly enjoy writing rated R material, but find PG family friendly fantasies in the vein of Harvey, It's A Wonderful Life, and Field of Dreams to be a nice release. Very involved in quirky PG-13 coming of age dramedies. Is there anything better than touching the heart and tickling the funny bone all within 90 pages?
I try to focus on the business side BEFORE I write to make sure the idea will be fresh for audiences and familiar for producers. My scripts all contain three main attributes. 1. A strong original idea that will hook you in. 2. Marketable to reach as large an audience as possible. 3. Make it memorable so audiences will want to come back again and again like a comfy blanket on a cold day. Those are the DVD's I have on my shelves.
My goal has always been to entertain with funny and/or touching stories that provide a much needed release from the every day. I am excited to finally be able to share these scripts and ready to collaborate with other storytellers! Don't be shy. Especially if you are interested in stories that incorporate a little comedy. I am here and happy to help. Maybe I've got an idea or outline that is just right for you. I welcome any and all help to improve these scripts so they can ultimately be enjoyed by more than just me! Be sure to browse the loglines. Thanks for checking in. Come back soon for updates on my wall. Ryan
