THE LAST BEACON
When a mythical enemy overruns an ancient kingdom, a young inexperienced Beacon Guard must race against time to light the last Beacon and alert the army that stands between him, his people and total annihilation.
Screenplay Readers: "…an exciting and imaginative take on the fantasy genre. What's especially refreshing is the scale of the story and how it focuses on one small battle in a larger picture, an almost post-modern approach to the genre".
 
HORROR
 
BLOOD TRAPS
A ragtag group of Trappers must save a young girl from a terrifying avenging spirit that turns their minds and their deadly traps against them.
Screenplay Readers: "…a pretty effective feature film script - it succeeds in having a clear central conflict, in having clear and escalating conflict throughout the story, and in having some surely frightening visuals that will likely pop on screen" CONSIDER
The Black List: "…[Blood Traps] has an intense conflict, some thrilling horror, and solid visuals, which makes it an intriguing period horror project. The third act, with elements like demonic possession and an undead army, is epic and properly climactic"
 
THE BRIDE (Commissioned Script)

Screenplay Readers: "…the story presents with genuinely original, scary, and fear-provoking moments that will make the audience jump in fright. What will help set this project apart from its peers though is the tasteful, effective use of a disabled character. Good work. CONSIDER
 
COMEDY
A LITTLE MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH
An OCD fuelled morgue assistant must save a down on her luck angle-faced rock stripper from a corrupt politician and a dogged detective with anger issues… and tell her that she's dead.
Screenplay Readers: "This is a lot of fun, easy to pitch, and perfect with popcorn. The story is full of great surprises, particularly in the first 30 pages" CONSIDER
The Black List: "The most marketable aspect of the script is its colorful characters and settings, which will give the film a vibrant cinematic texture. The strong, dimensional characters also have a lot of potential to attract A-list actors to the robust and unique roles"

Screenplay Readers: "the premise and structure of the film offer plenty of potential for laughter and solid comedy craft. The use of the Nuns especially should set this project apart. THE BODY has every chance of becoming a comedy hit" CONSIDER
