Chinese Connection

A seemingly localized infiltration by a Chinese drug gang is actually something far more dangerous. Detective Nash gets paired with a Chinese detective who knows a lot more than he lets on. When Nash finds himself up against a brutal overlord with no regard for life, and that his ex wife might be involved, things start to boil.

Maniacal

A young mother panics when her husband and son disappear on a weekend bonding trip to an isolated cabin. Police report her husband was found dead, his car mangled at the bottom of a ravine, but there is no sign of her son. Her desperate search for answers leads her ever closer to confronting a secret past she hoped would stay buried.

This was my first screenplay. Wait… That’s not really true. Disincarnate was the first and was actually filmed. But Maniacal was the first serious attempt I had made at writing a screenplay that I didn’t intend to go film out in the barn.Oh how good I thought it was too!

I was a long time member on a site called TriggerStreet, where short videos and scripts were peer reviewed, and I anxiously uploaded. I had experienced good feedback on my short vids and expected to be welcomed into the script writing side of the operation with a loving embrace. I was mercilessly beaten down. “Show, don’t tell”, “Too wordy”, ‘You can’t do that”.

I dove in with all my energy and learned, practiced, re-wrote. Finally my script was up for screenplay of the month and won a professional review from Scriptshark.
