My film and writing credits consist of the following:
1. Jet Addiction's Steve Fagan adapted my screenplay, "FREEFALL TO UMTIBI," to dvd, and re-titled it, "DICTATORS ON A PLANE.”
2. Ubuntu Films produced, “SEARCH" from my script, "DADS."
3. I wrote, produced, and directed, "THE DECISION," which is currently in the editing phase.
The first two are doing the festival circuit now.
Taunton Press published an article of mine in their 2005 April edition of Fine Homebuilding, and a short “fictional” story I wrote resides in Darkfire's non-fiction archive Issue 5, Sept./'03 called "BLASPHEMER!"
"SCOURGE," the story of a Middle Eastern nation, which attacks the US preemptively in answer to a War President’s threats, is a tent pole for two other fully developed screenplays.
The second in the series, "HUBRIS" is about a terrorist known only as The Philosopher because of a penchant for quotations, who targets nuclear plants as weapons of mass destruction in an attempt to blackmail the world into a nuclear arms free future.
The third installment, "THE PHILOSOPHER," fleshes out the history of the title character in the mujahadin, his rise to prominence, and his attack against The Bruckheimer Governance, a consortium of pharmaceutical companies, weapons manufacturers, royalty and ex-politicos.
I wrote a teen comedy script loosely based on the Arthurian legends, called, "ARTHUR PEN," as well as a fifties vampire screenplay titled, "HORS D'OEUVRES TO THE GODS," about a boy who decides to destroy the culprits when he cannot convince his parents or the authorities vampires have commandeered the local funeral parlor.
My latest screenplay, "DARKWING," is about a vampire with AIDS who slaughters ladies-of-the-night in retaliation, but the boyfriend of one of his victims vows to destroy him.
I am presently working on a sci-fi, my first attempt at the genre. So far, so good...
