I have won two screenplay contests, and optioned two screenplays. But I coulda made more money digging ditches: DANIEL SANCHEZ-LEONETTI was raised in the Hispanic/Italian coal mining town of Sopris, Colorado. He attended the University of Denver on an English Scholarship and graduated in 1979. He has worked as a sports editor and freelance feature writer for newspapers and magazines in the American Southwest. His most recent screenplay, The Woodpecker Waltz, is in development with Keller Entertainment & Edde Studios. (see www.kellereddestudios.com). The character from the screenplay was recently pardoned by Colorado Governor Bill Ritter exactly 70 years after his execution in the gas chamber for murder. Currently he is at work on two novels set in his beloved southern Colorado. Joe and the UFO was his first published novel (www.sentrybooks.com) and was based on one of his screenplays.

A review of The Pirate Treeby dleonetti on 07/05/2009The Pirate Tree has an intriguing concept, and a good feel for a family film. It’s formulistic, but that is fine for a genre that you are shooting for. . .A boy loses his famous daredevil father, and is afraid of heights, but he beats the odds to climb his own beanstalk to self discovery. I think you need more conflict in Act I. I know you are working on character and mood,... read
A review of Frat Boys from Outer Spaceby dleonetti on 06/14/2009It’s a cool concept: Aliens crash land in Boulder, as if we didn’t have enough of them walking around already and thinking with their tentacles. I found this a strange write for you, Bob, and assume you did it on a lark. I must say that I was slightly disappointed. Though the story had some laugh out loud moments, I found the script lacking. You might want to infuse more humor... read
