After trying the corporate grind in New York for two years I realized it wasn't for me. So I packed my bags and moved to New Zealand. Pay checks are few and far between and I seldom know where I'll be sleeping a week from today. But every day has been an adventure. And I can't complain about that.

    This script is an extremely fast read. And I think that's something to be proud of. Physically, it looks clean on the page. Lots of white space and no lengthy, adjective-littered descriptions. So that's encouraging. However, I was unable to connect with the characters or the story and was extremely frustrated with the ending. But I did pick this script to read above my other... read

    This script has a lot going for it--colorful characters pursuing nefarious goals in Cleveland's seedy underbelly--but there several elements that slowed it down and made it tough to get into the story as a reader.

  • A review of Larry's Best Friend

    The premise is money. Simple, intriguing and funny. This is a great high concept story with lots of potential. Larry is an uptight scientist with no sense of humor. He prefers talking to his dog (ie hearing himself speak) to normal social interaction. His world is turned upside down when he breaks up with his girlfriend and her wacky shaman casts a spell that leads to Ginger... read

    Thanks for your review of School for the Blind (first draft). I especially appreciate that you went past the technical errors and rookie mistakes and also gave feedback and suggestions on the story. This left me very motivated to put a lot of effort into a rewrite.

    Thank you for your thoughtful review. Some of the problems you and a couple of others have pointed out, I have already been able to resolve in a surprising way. Generally the problems in a script which others point out ring true, but not their suggested solutions. I appreciate the tone of your review because you really are rooting for the script, just trying to improve it. The exorcism stays in the script because the pope actually performed an exorcism twice on Hitler. I will revise the script and put a new version up in the near future. Thanks again.
