Film and Television Projects

My first script a couple of years ago was runner-up (out of over two thousand entries) in the Creative Screen Writing Magazine Contest and recently had two film scripts optioned. Working on one of the first game shows to take advantage of the immersive nature of HDTV, social networking and competitive reality game play. Utilizing the recent convergence of key technologies, it is not only cost effective and addictively entertaining, but also has the flexibility to tailor to the interests of, and target, key demographics. Broadcast revolution of not fully relying on the 30 second spot. Creating a new form of advertising through sponsored socially generated content and sponsored content. The viral based game-play rules are intense and target all user touch-points – mobile, web and broadcast HD. The feature-rich web and mobile game-play can be enhanced by a web-based toolkit that allows advertisers and users to create their own feature-rich games and embed them on their own websites.
