I am an award-winning director and screenwriter. Industry Works Pictures has picked up the thriller Clock Out for distribution and West of Ventura is being released by Champion Entertainment, both produced by Golden Cat Films and based on my scripts. I have written another original script for Golden Cat, and they also optioned my sci-fi spec script, Vampyre Rain. I have also optioned my horror script, Sleep Stealer. The feature Ring River, which I wrote, is currently in post, and "12:07", an indie series that I wrote and co-created, is currently shooting. I am also available for hire to write original scripts and for re-writes.
In the past, my screenplays have finished as either quarter-finalist, semi-finalist, finalist and/or top-ten finalist in the Nicholl Fellowship program, the Chesterfield Film Company Competition, the People’s Picture Show, WriteMovies.com, FilmMakers.com, the Writer’s Network, the New Century Writer Awards and the American Accolades Screenwriting Competition. In 2005, Key West Indiefest named my screenplay, The Deathwatch as, “...one of the top twenty screenplays in the world,” and in 2007 my screenplay, Static, placed in the top 15% out of 5,000 entries in the Nicholl Fellowship program.
I am also an independent filmmaker. My short film, “Ronnie Carter Jones,” was a Bronze award winner for Original Dramatic Short at the Worldfest Houston International Film Festival. I have also written and directed three independent feature films, They’re Watching You, After The Viewing, Before The Funeral, and circular logic.

West of Ventura
Film (Thriller) Writer The whereabouts of a rare package filled with uncut diamonds becomes unknown. Local thieves, lovers, mob men, and families hunt down this prized possession for their own personal gain. Through the struggle of finding this package, human love and passion are exploited oddly enough through sin. These arbitrary citizens chase their immortality, which is ultimately deceiving only themselves from that fact that every human being will die someday. As they say, pride comes before the fall, and pride is overwhelmingly abundant in the city of Ventura. Written by Wilson Conkwright

Ronnie Carter Jones
Film (Short) Writer Ronnie Carter Jones is the story of an autistic boy who views his troubled family though the unblinking eye of a video camera. On the surface, the Jones family appears to be quite ordinary. They seem to be coping well with an autistic son, Ronnie, who is manageable as long as he has his video camera in hand. But underneath the surface, and behind the lens of the camera, tiny ripples run into a tidal wave of accusations, infidelity and violence, ripping this family unit apart. Ronnie Carter Jones earned a bronze award at the 25th Annual Worldfest Houston International Film Festival for Original Dramatic Short. Written by Anonymous
