I write multimedia scripts and panel text for science centers and museums. I've researched and written the text for several coffee-table books on natural history (words that will be skimmed by millions!) and published three children's books. I've had feature screenplays optioned, but never produced.

Stagrassle Paranormal Video 1 - partial completed pilot

4 stars
Love what you do with your backgrounds. I think some of the characters are a tad too broad for your mockumentary style, and you have to get out of setup mode & into the paranormal stuff much sooner.

The only thing accomplished by breaking up your synopsis into individual screens is to make it much slower to read. And annoying.

Blockworld Video 1 - sci-fi short

2 stars
What little happens, happens with agonizing slowness. Few things are as boring as watching someone else play a video game--in life, or in a film. If something were at stake, it would be different.

Bagger, Pilot Script 1 - Bagger: Pilot

2 stars
Unfortunately, I just didn’t find this comedy very funny. I think you need to exploit the setting of the grocery store, rather than populating the world with arbitrarily quirky characters.

I grew up reading mostly science fiction and fantasy but read less and less of it because the writing is often poor. Still, those are the kinds of stories that grab my interest.

Arthur C. Clarke and Ray Bradbury were always my favourites.
