How would you describe your current knowledge and skills (screenwriting, acting, or other)? [We read all responses. Please put a little effort into this form. You're a writer, right?]

Since 2004, I have written several scripts, continuing to leverage the feedback obtained from them into script improvements. I also made an experimental short film, and participate in filmmaking groups.

Which genres are you particularly interested in? (e.g. comedy, drama, science fiction, etc.)

At this point, I am open.

What are a few of your favorite movies, TV shows, books, or other inspirations? (List at least ONE by name.)

Any movie done well, but forced to admit musicals not really my favorite except Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum In random order: Mulholland Drive, Do the Right Thing, Casablanca, the Bourne series, Godfather series, most Denzel Washington projects, The Bedford Incident, A Day on Earth (Jim Jarmusch), Fail Safe, Patton, Wendy and Lucy, Taxi Driver, Good Will Hunting, To Kill a Mocking Bird, Capote, Jack Goes Boating, Skyfall, Goldfinger, The Ipcress File, The Queen, Psycho, The Ninth Configuration, Shutter Island, Family Man, Shallow Hal, The Cable Guy, The Producers, Play It Again Sam, Match Point, Clear and Present Danger, Amelie, Julliet of The Spirits, The Passenger, Jungle Fever, The Pawnbroker. Many more. By the way, thank you for indulging me - you only asked for a few. I like talking shop.

Do you hope to have any of your material read or critiqued by the group?

Yes. I was glad to have the group critique an earlier work, and hope to have more opportunities for review.

Why are you interested in joining this screenwriting group? What are you hoping for?

I'm looking forward to building up my story-telling - relating stories of the human condition - by meeting and working with members of the group.


I like the way watching video (and listening to music, too) has the instant capacity to enter our minds, and thus feelings. I always wanted to participate in that, and chose screenwriting to do it.
