Screenplays


The following are all unproduced screenplays (for a sample of my produced ones, see my YouTube playlist).  If you are a budding videographer and looking to shoot one of these, all I ask is that you give me a credit for the original screenplay and send me a link to the finished product that I can include here.

 

The Tylenol Killer : (1985) (This is a PDF file that can be opened by Acrobat Reader). I wrote this skit originally around 1984, shortly after the real Tylenol Killer struck in the suburbs of Chicago. Over the years we did it as a sketch on video (1985), on the radio (1992) and on television (1988). This particular version is from 1985.

The Life and Times of Tony: (1985) (This is a PDF file that can be opened by Acrobat Reader). This was a script that I wrote during my freshman year in high school. It started out based in some kind of reality (slightly exaggerated) and spiraled out of control from there.

The Twilight Zone – Dawn Awaits : (1990) (This is a PDF file that can be opened by Acrobat Reader). This was an unproduced episode, primarily because of the violence and the need for a specific effect at the end of the screenplay. Today, that could be easily done with computer based non-linear editing applications. But in 1990, with two videotape machines, it would have been next to impossible.

The Twilight Zone – Retirement: (1995) (This is a PDF file that can be opened by Acrobat Reader). Between 1984 and 1989, I produced many “Twilight Zone” inspired episodes. This was a script that I co-wrote with David Grelyak (of “Kill Dave” fame).

The Twilight Zone – May 31st: (1995) (This is a PDF file that can be opened by Acrobat Reader). Dave came up with the original idea for “Retirement”, I came up with the original idea for “May 31st”. Unfortunately, neither story was ever produced.

The Twilight Zone – Zero Hour: (1990) (This is a PDF file that can be opened by Acrobat Reader). I tried on three separate occasions to shoot this story.  We could never get out of pre-production.  I still think it would be a great episode, the original story by Ray Bradbury is exceedingly creepy in a Twilight Zone way.

Star Trek: Voyager – To the End of Tomorrow: (1995) (This is a PDF file that can be opened by Acrobat Reader). Shortly after “Star Trek: Voyager” aired, Paramount Television announced they would read unsolicited manuscripts. This is (sort of) a sequel to the Star Trek: TNG episode “Conspiracy”. If it had been produced, it would have fit in early in the first season of Voyager.
