More About Me
I'm an award winnng screenwriter, actor, director...you name it, I've been called it. The "standard" bio is at the bottom.
I discovered Amazon Studios through good friend Christian Davis, Director of the test movie "Memory". (I also do one of the voices for the project.) Having the opportunity to put one of my scripts (UNNATURAL SELECTION) up on Amazon and make a test movie for it sounded really appealing. Telling the story the way I would do it, without chasing down investors all over the world, sounded like a plan. Living in Hollywood, I've watched too many talent people go from aspiring writers and directors into money chasers as a full time vocation. And that doesn't pay well....most folks rack up more debt than bring in money.
Anyway...my hope (with some technical help from Christian) is to develop a great test movie of my script and get some helpful input and comments along the way. And if anyone else is so inspired by the script, hopefully they too will want to make a test movie of it.
So, read the script, watch my test movie and please let me know your thoughts!
