SCREENPLAYS



I don't consider myself an aspiring filmmaker because I've never actually made a film. While I did apply to several film schools in 1998, every single one rejected me! So I went back to watching movies and buying DVDs, which is always entertaining but certainly not as rewarding as the creative process.

Even though the industry seems to have no use for me, I have completed treatments for a few screenplays over the years and would love to collaborate with a brilliant young filmmaker. Any takers?

HE CAN BUY (working title)
