Hi, I'm a screenwriter and novelist, university screenwriting lecturer and creative writing teacher. I've got the scripts, I can edit the hell out of others' to make them go from good to exceptional, but I'm CRAP at filmmaking. I would very much like to connect with filmmakers looking for quality (short) scripts. Doesn't matter where you are (don't you love modern technology?).
Most of the scripts uploaded here are short films, low budget but with quality writing. So do take a look. And if you've got a handy 30 mill going spare and fancy having a once-in-a-lifetime safari adventure then take a look at Operation Noah, my feature. Only the first act has been posted; please contact me for the full script if interested.
And if you've got connections with Netflix then you'll probably want to take a look at the pilot episode to my WW2 science-fantasy drama series Incarnate.
More of my work can be found on my website where you'll find details of my novels.
