Studied film at the University of Utah for a few years, then took some time off from filmmaking and writing to get my degree in nursing. The life experience has been invaluable, and has given me a lot of inspiration to start writing again. I was a big Triggestreet user about six years ago. Now I'm diving back in!

  • A review of Bush Leaguers
    by SamDawg on 02/02/2013
    First of all, I enjoyed reading this screenplay. I always admire when a writer works hard to finish a piece of work. This screenplay has many things going well for it, but it is also very rough and could benefit from a substantial rewrite, as most first drafts can. I am no industry professional, but I have had some success on Triggerstreet and have been through the wringer... read

    Concept: A "team building" exercise held for an online humanitarian organization on a remote island turns deadly when it turns out that the consultant running the exercise is working for a company that wants the humanitarians dead. Good setup for a horror/thriller pic. The title didn't work for me. "Team Building" doesn't seem like a great title for a thriller/survival/horror... read

    A very ambitious film, and for a first short, it's shooting very high. I appreciate the lack of dialogue, and the highly stylized approach to editing and light design. As a story it told a strong allegory of the blessing and a curse that is knowledge. Reminded me of a darker take on the garden of Eden. The ending where the fellow smashed his own hand lead me to believe... read

    Hi Sam. I'd just like to say thanks for reading our screenplay. I'm really glad you liked it, and thanks for your kind words! You highlighted a few issues that I was also concerned with, so it's good to hear from a second voice that they need to be fixed - your review was really helpful. Corlis

    Sam, thanks for your review. Considering I think you were kind. I am working on most of your suggestions. I am bullish on that Emily "Ark" line though. I may take you up on your offer someday. Thanks again you were most helpful.

    Sam - I greatly appreciate your thorough review of BUSH LEAGUERS. Thank you for the constructive criticism, but, most importantly, the time you put into the review and the suggestions. I've been a bit frustrated with last few reviews and it was really refreshing to read yours - it gives me something I can actually use to get better as a writer and, for that, I'm grateful. If I can ever twist your arm to get you to read any of my other writing, let me know.
