Here’s what’s trending…

Okay, so OnceUponAde has some pretty BIG items on the docket. Well, maybe minute to you the reader, but big in the eyes of moi.

 1.)       The first item pertains to SLIM, which has been submitted to the ‘International’ Scriptapalozza Screenplay Contest. After countless rewrites and critiques, WE the good folks at OnceUponAde feel confident that the script could garner some significant attention. Fingers crossed, God willing.

 Other screenplay contest deadlines:

International Scriptapalozza Screenplay Contest (Submitted 4.25.2014)

Austin Film Festival (4.30)

Slam Dance (Approaching)

The Blue Cat (8.1)

 2.)       Commercial scripts ‘All I Need Is One’ and ‘REBEL’, have both been highlighted in numerous letters that have been forwarded to advertising and literary agencies. WE the good folks at OnceUponAde pray that one day through various mediums (modestly speaking, the SUPERBOWL perhaps) the world can lay eyes on these pioneering illustrations.

3.) Upcoming screenplays and shorts to watch out for:


Currently a Short, possible feature(Writing)

 Logline: An indebted ex-prison guard enables Myles, a former hoodlum, to be released from prison hours earlier, eluding the unbeknownst hit placed on him by his old set. Wanting out, Myles attempts to disappear with his wife and daughter, but it’s blood in blood out, and so Myles is forced to hideout in a church.



Logline: Two Chicagoans, childhood friends, now living overseas in opposite hemispheres, have eerily paralleling lives, which converge in a fortuitously mysterious way while they both struggle to return home.

4.)  Upcoming commercial scripts:

 REWIND, A Skype Commercial (Writing)

I say ‘partial’ because unfortunately we live in a world where one’s intellectual property is virtually anyone’s property up for grabs…

And this script is way too delicate for me to take that risk. Sorry everyone, but I will say this, several individuals who have read it said they have never envisioned anything quite like it.

Although it is only one page, click on the link below and check it out. Let me know what you think.

And that assimilating to what happened isn’t all that bad. But just like I never asked for this, I’ll never ask for pity.”


Oh Snap!!! Audi script refined once again, plus AUDIO files embedded!

Okay, so if you are a follower on my Facebook page then you probably saw my tribute to Carl Sanderson for his opinions which became my inspiration. Patrick Leslie also gave me some key ingredients that made this Audi RS7 dish more delectable.

So here it is. The two audio files run at different marks within the script. Play them, get a feel for them and then read the script. Visualize the opening scene with the audio playing softly. It’s quite an experience.

1.   (We use this track for about 78% of the script)

2.  (This track takes us home.)


Note: Be sure and open up two different windows in order to listen to the audio while reading the script.

SLIM 2???

For those of you who read part one of the latest screenplay I scripted called ‘SLIM’, prepare for a potential part 2. While in the shower, I had an epiphany to draw out SLIM further, into  a sequel, most likely as a short film. I am thinking approximately 20 or 30 minutes, but that can all change.

One thing that is certain, the twist will have you screaming expletives.
