COMPLETED SPEC TV TELEPLAY: The Belcher’s investigation into Mike the mailman’s disappearance leads them to the ledge of Gayle’s apartment building.
COMMENTS: Yes, I’m a fan of Bob’s Burgers. I like the zany writing style and the characters are all spot on. I wrote this spec script as my entry for the Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship. Another fan of the show asked me if I was going to send it to the show. I laughed uncontrollably. Nobodies like me don’t get the opportunity to have a script read (let alone breathed on) by anyone connected with the show – or any show for that matter. It is a cruel world – no matter how good your script is.
COMPLETED FEATURE SCREENPLAY: A coming-of-age drama about two high school boys who are like oil and water, yet come together to mask the dysfunction in their lives.
COMMENTS: My first screenplay. It began as a very brief scene in 2006, evolved into a short script, then as a feature. It went through 10 drafts before I was happy with the result. I still tinker with it here and there (as I do with all my screenplays – as none of them are ever really finished are they? There is always something that triggers a switch that makes you go back and change something, the smallest little thing that may make all the difference).
This was originally titled ‘Free Falling’ – not after the Tom Petty song. I changed it to ‘Lost Together’ – not after the Blue Rodeo song, but because the two lead characters really are lost together.
COMPLETED FEATURE SCREENPLAY: A road trip comedy in the vein of 'Little Miss Sunshine' involving a contest winner who wins the chance to meet her favourite singer.
COMMENTS: This script began as just a title way back in the 1980s. Since then, it has evolved into a short story and into a screenplay. I love the cadence of the title with all the ‘M’s which is why the title has stayed with me for so many years. I’ve always wanted to write a comedy that involved a road trip with lots of quirky, goofy characters. Here it is.
