PROJECT SHOWCASE

I CAN HELP YOU BRING YOUR MOVIE or TV IDEA TO LIFE!

It's funny how things come together. As a young child, I remember coming home after school, opening a box of Legos, and getting out all the pieces that I needed to build a tripod and video camera. I couldn't wait to put it together and do a live broadcast to the bowling alley next door. I honestly thought they could hear me and the stories I was telling them. 

 

Soon after, I found myself living in a boarding school through my elementary years, where I used writing as both a hobby and a coping mechanism. By my first year in high school, I was interested in film. I discovered that I could couple that with my love for writing to tell a story others could enjoy. 

 

Below are a few of the projects I am currently working on and some from past years. I have a knack for storytelling and enjoy writing children's cartoons, comedies, westerns, and documentaries. Please feel free to check out some of story ideas and scripts.

 

If you have a movie or TV idea but need a creative writer to help bring it to life, don't hesitate to get in touch with me so we can get started!

Children's Cartoons

RUDY THE RUDDY DUCK 

Adventurous, Adle-Minded, Qwacky

This humorous cartoon pilot tells the story of two ducks living out their dreams on the water. Rudy, the husband, sleeps in a kiddie pool all day, with no intention of leaving. His wife, Rosie, becomes infuriated as it's time to head south for the winter. Rudy's lack of focus gains the attention of Buster Blackhawk, who hopes to make an easy meal out of them. Will they be able to outsmart Buster before it is too late?

 

RUDY THE RUDDY DUCK

Migration Mayhem

Rudy is confident with his navigational expertise as he flies south with his wife, Rosie. When they wind up at a Wisconsin zoo instead of southern Florida, all heck breaks loose. When "Super Stretch," the ostrich gives chase, the ducks must find a way to defeat him and get back on their track to Florida before it is too late.

ALL HAT NO CATTLE

Devious, Audacious

When two overly-confident brothers have no jobs and no prospects, they turn to a life of crime and set out to perform the most epic bank heist of all time, dwarfing Jesse James's. But when things go wrong from the start, they are humiliated, embarrassed, and defeated in this western-style comedy short.

THE WALLS

A Missouri Prison Documentary 168 in the Making

This short documentary tells the story of one of America's most brutal penitentiaries that existed in America. Constructed in 1836 with inmate labor, it housed prisoners over 100 years before Alcatraz and was home to infamous inmates, like pretty boy Floyd. While it closed in 2004, it is said to house the spirits of those long departed. 

THE WAVERLY HILLS SANITORIUM

A Tuberculosis Hospital & Permanent Spirit Residence

Get ready for a story about Waverly Hills Sanitorium, an early 20th century Todor Gothic-style architecture building in Louisville, KY. In operation from 1910-to 1961, it was once a symbol of hope for those suffering from Tuberculosis. Many of the patients and even staff that arrived never left due to illness or other dark tragedies. Still standing today, it is a hotbed for paranormal activity.

THE LAST GATEHOUSE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ELDON VILLAGE, located on the planet Milia's continent, Eshane is a mysterious place where sickness and corruption run deep. The temperature is generally mild, with an average temperature of 68 degrees. Within the town exists residents and their homes, merchants, churches, and a large castle with a moat and single entry gate, which is protected by a guard. To enter, a travel pass must be presented and approved by the guard. King Liao Cynan lives within the castle walls, where he directs all business and rarely leaves. The king approves or denies residency, real estate matters, tribunals, marriages, etc. All of his decisions are final, with no appeals.

 

Within the castle exists an underground cavern system 400 feet below that is a constant 62 degrees year-round. It stores alchemy labs, the kings' riches, valuables, as well as a crypt. This cavern system is guarded around the clock, and unauthorized entry attempts can be deadly. Entry is granted solely by King Liao Cynan.

 

There is expansive land outside the village that has traditional mountains, but also inverted ones. Volcanoes in the southern hemisphere spew toxic lava and gas, while those in the northern hemisphere spew ice crystals. Outside those village walls, people can choose to live independently, although they must be self-sufficient. Life is every bit as challenging out here, with thieves, dangerous animals, and killer carnivorous plants that can reach out and grab people and animals alike. These are represented on the map provided. There is a local tavern where townsfolk congregate to have a drink, fight, or even mingle. 

 

There are occasional postings available where townsfolk actively look for a hero to save them from disease and the evil king. 

Past work and storieS

INTERNATIONAL CAR FOREST OF THE LAST CHURCH

"Art Cars" in Goldfield, Nevada

Goldfield was perhaps one of the wealthiest gold mining boom towns from 1903-1910 Nevada. Then, in 1923, a moonshine still explosion destroyed anything that would burn, leaving little behind. Still populated today, it is the location of "car art," a place where artists have expressed themselves on something other than canvas. 

LUNAR CRATER

Welcome to the Pancake Range

Lunar Crater sits along the Pancake Range of Nevada. While it looks like an impact crater, it is called a "maar," created due to volcanic activity. Interestingly, this crater has served as a training ground for astronauts and Mars Rover. Nearly 100 miles from the nearest town, I was lucky to have located it and spent time here in solidarity. 

ZEUS' BAG OF LIGHTENING

Powerful Storms Passing Through

As Nicola Tesla once said, "If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration." What we have here is a video taken at my home in 2017, right after a powerful thunderstorm. The video is just under normal speed, in appreciation of the lightning, but the sounds of thunder were from the actual storm. 

WINTER PARK/MARY JANE COLORADO

The Annual Christmas Torchlight Parade of 2019

The annual Christmas Torchlight Parade is always fun to see, especially when there is a good view. Many skiers participate along with snowcats to put on an enjoyable show while fireworks erupt from above. Shot in time-lapse, this was one cold and snowy night!

ROADS HOTEL

Spectral, Chilling, Captivating

The Roads Hotel has seen many uses other than what its name implies. Throughout time, it also served as a brothel and speakeasy that Jesse James and Al Capone are said to have frequented. Still, some patrons of long ago seem to roam throughout. So join me while I investigate overnight to look for answers. 

THE UNTOLD STORY OF WELDON SPRING, MO

A WWII Superfund Site

Nowadays, it is nearly impossible to see that Weldon Spring, Missouri played a significant role in WWII as the world's largest producer of TNT and DNT. It's even more challenging to see that this location processed Uranium for "the bomb." Left behind was an incredible amount of toxicity that took a Superfund effort to clean up.

MINGLING WITH THE FIREWORKS

Summer of 2017

Watching fireworks is always fun, but especially when you are up there close and personal. It's getting more common at wedding receptions, which is what we have here. 

A SUNSET RIDE ON THE UPPER MISSISSIPPI RIVER

Pool 26

Join me while I take a relaxing sunset ride on the upper Mississippi Rivers' "Pool 26" near Alton, Illinois, in 2014. Whether tooling around, taking in the spectacular cliffs, or stopping for a place to eat on the water, this is always an enjoyable place.
