Get to know the writer:

What is your story about?

In a futuristic time, a mercenary, Mike Colby, is paid by his ex-wife and CEO of a galactic shipping corporation, Gemini, to deliver a treaty to militant aliens in their sector. Having a history with the aliens, Mike, takes on the job to find out how they got into this sector. When he meets with the alien general, he notices an odd device attached to their control panel that projects an image of all the space stations in that sector. When the alien general rejects the treaty (no surprise) Mike uses a series of flash and incendiary grenades to escape WITH the module. He escapes in his beat up shuttle and pursued by alien fighters. His ex-wife refuses to provide backup for him and leaves him to die. One of her female captains, Tisch, rescues Mike against her orders escalating an existing feud between the two. Making matters worse, Mike is smitten by the captain and determined to win her over. Upon their return to headquarters, Mike is drawn into the feud between them. In addition, the aliens threaten to destroy the shipping corporation if they don’t return the module. Mike hopes to maintain peace between them but Tisch believes Gemini is responsible for her father’s death and Gemini, who hoped to rekindle her relationship with Mike, is jealous over his interest in Tisch.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I love futuristic movies which exploit complicated human issues

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

You need perseverence and the ability to objectively evaluate your story. Is it really marketable or just something you feel strongly about? Can I make others feel the passion of the story or do I hope that they’ll just like the characters? Is there a significant character arc in my characters to make this filmworthy and can it be done with a reasonable budget? These are things you need to consider before writing a story.

Feature Film Video Pitch: Blackbird, by George Sweet

Get to know the writer:

Get to know the writer:

What is your story about?

The story is wrought on the grounds of a devilish murder plan, involving hate and revenge and a family fortune. Twists abound through the narrative, the denouement being revealed in one flash of action and which is clever enough to elude most all educated viewers. Scenes of sex and violence are used in the appropriate context to the plot and characters’ aims and not added in gratuitously.

Why should people know this story?

People should know this story because I believe it to be a good gripping entertainment.

This story has a lot going for it. How would you describe this story in two words?

Singing in the Rain, Rear Window, Shane, Rififi, Crimes and Misdemeanors, One Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest, Pulp Fiction.

Other passions – politics, history, psychology, fiction in general and particularly crime fiction.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Don’t think I would be qualified to offer advice.
