Screenplays (Full-Length)

  • Who is Laurence Harvey?

Advanced to the Second Round (top 25%) of The 2012 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards.

“…the script is a definite contender for the lab. It’s a unique idea with a capable writer at the helm… a noteworthy project…” –Feedback from the Film Independent Screenwriting Lab 2012

  • The Golden Curator

“What a neat and twisted little tale you have here… Even with all the craziness on the page, it never sounded like a campy comedy; instead, it was like a drawing room farce with just enough menace to make the viewer worry about the fate of our hero.” –Feedback from the 2013 BlueCat Screenplay Competition

Screenplays (Short)

  • Death Is No Bad Friend

Quarter finalist in the 2013 CWA (Creative World Awards).

2nd round qualifier in the Kaos Films British Short Screenplay Competition 2012, judged by Sir Kenneth Branagh.

Death Is No Bad Friend is a poetic script that relies on imagery to evoke a morose feeling. The language is very well-crafted, with the characters’ style of speech accurate for the time period. Because the descriptions are succinct but also written in a similar style, the script reads easily and quickly while creating clear images of the locations.” –Feedback from the 2014 BlueCat Screenplay Competition.

  • The Man Who Never Smiled

“…a compelling structure for a short. It heightens the stakes knowing that the protagonist is going to end up in a life-threatening and bloody situation. It also makes the story compact and easy to digest — a great attribute in a short.” –Feedback from the 2014 BlueCat Screenplay Competition.

  • This Extraneous Evil

“Great use of setting here; the circus world is evocative and memorable, and allows the characters to express themselves with very little dialogue. …Overall, an interesting storyline with some sympathetic characters in a fascinating setting.” –Feedback from the 2014 Slamdance Screenplay Competition
