I like cheap and tawdry things. Campy, disrespectful things. Bold, brash, self-confident things. Things with a sense of humor... And the people who make these things... Painters who try something new. Writers who wallow down with their subjects. Filmmakers who don’t take themselves too seriously. This describes my scripts and production designs too. I want to make low-budget films that attack the status quo, stir things up a bit, make people laugh inappropriately. I also write with a lot of ellipses...

    I might as well review all your screenplays... I think for what this is - a comic book - the story works. Conn wears his emotions on his shirt sleeve, says what he feels, talks to the camera, etc. It’s not subtle, but that’s okay. Your evil villains aren’t subtle either - they’re in-your-face evil.

    Very nice. Vignettes connected by horoscope definitions. A theme about how life is tenuous but joyful, and we’re all connected by circumstances. I liked the pacing and the gentle approach you took with your characters - most are just normal folks living slightly screwy lives - I could relate. There were definite comic moments (the waiter mentioning the ticket, flushing toilet... read

    Thanks for putting up with yet another one of my scripts. You were spot on with Cortex, my intent was to do a Philip Dick kind of story with over the top elements so therefore your Dick Tracy take was on the money... Now whether I was successful is another story but that was my intent. Appreciate all the reads!
