Latest Work

  • Mini-bible 3 - 2nd Draft - Clarified Direction
    08/30/12
    Creative Notes:
    Rewrote the "Fundamentals of the Show" Section using clearer language to put the show's style of "Serious Characters in Awkward Situations" into better perspective.

    Among the changes is a reference to Family Guy's Non Sequitur Cut-always. Sight-gags in Starship Enlisted are only off-limits when they have no impact on the story.
    Concept:
    When new crewmembers arrive, the Special Maintenance Unit tries to break the ship's "Curse" of never getting through time in Space Dock without having a major accident that scares off the good ones.
  • Pilot Script 4 - 2nd Full Draft
    08/24/12
    Creative Notes:
    Revised much of the dialogue, especially character voices. Example: made Fix sound more folksy.

    Rearranged the scenes for a better flow. Added a sequence Below Decks for a sharper contrast of Officers vs. Enlisted and replaced the scene in Engineering with a funnier scene in the Kitchen so you can see how the sausage gets made aboard a Starship.
    Logline:
    When new crewmembers arrive, the Special Maintenance Unit tries to break the ship's "Curse" of never getting through time in Space Dock without having a major accident that scares off the good ones.
