Scribe Potluck (‘Lunatic Fringe’ Sample #4)

Pages 7 & 8 follow Synopsis…Please let me know what you think…CHEERS!!

Project SYNOPSIS is as follows: To evade his past as well as secure his future, lone wolf/would-be-hustler Shane Cooke treks to the West Coast for one last swindle before setting sail to the ‘promised land,’ where early retirement awaits. In covert pursuit, sadomasochist billionaire Adrian Ranquist and his cronies will stop at nothing to secure the life-shattering possession residing in nomadic Cooke’s duffle bag; and for fun, enact a little revenge in the process. His sinister operatives stand ready to pounce. Literally colliding with his Soulmate in mid-daylight, Shane must decide to go through with his well-drawn scheme or abandon it altogether, in favor of tearing down walls of mistrust, letting passion and love flood his impaired soul. A fateful climax between waring factions will decide, once and for all, if true love is allowed to flourish or perish into infamy.

Scribe Potluck (‘Lunatic Fringe’ Sample #1)

Over the coming months I’d like to share with you pages (2 at a time) from the very first screenplay I ever wrote w/ Final Draft software (sans the many failed ‘attempts’ in Film School)…classified & belonging to the Contemporary Thriller genre, this particular project posed many challenges with regard to the 3-act structure as well as character development & dialogue for a wet-behind-ears pup w/ stars in his eyes…a solid learning experience for sure, with many hits & misses along the way; that said, I’m all the better for it…a better artist, entrepreneur & over all wordsmith. I remember burying myself in it, forgoing all social commitments for months at a time…now that’s commitment and/or obsession!
