Synopsis/Details: 

In this story, perhaps to be directed in the style of the hectic thrillers of Quentin Tarantino or Oliver Stone from the 90s, murderers of every type plague the U.S. roadways. But while the sadists with the goriest nicknames earn the most media attention, none of them generates the kill numbers of an everyday-looking family – a dad with his thirteen-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son - who leave mass bloodshed in their wake as they roam the Southwestern U.S. with their dead
cat in the trunk.

Hopefully, the cops are closing in on this peculiar clan of killers, but so are the kids’ psychotic mom, as well as a caring aunt out to rescue the kids to a safe, loving home.

With murder and mayhem from start to finish, it’s ... American Genocide!

Now for the serious stuff:

I aim high both with my themes and my storytelling. The "genocide" in the title refers to the destruction of a generation of youth, through violent programming, neglect, home breakup, etc. As for a this-meets-that comparison of the story, you may detect a dash of "American Psycho", a spoonful of "No Country for Old Men", and (if you go back that far) a smidgen of "Night of the Hunter", award-winners all.

I look forward to sending this startling, modestly-budgeted allegory to you! (Also available as Pilot + Episode One)

I am an incorporated businessperson, and I operate as Integer Entertainment. I'm actively pursuing attachments for my smaller scale projects before I work my way up. While the status of my scripts here may read 'For Sale', I'm just as likely to be seeking producers/talent/investors to collaborate with as a co-producer, wherein I'd be bringing my screenplay as well as package elements and maybe even some money to the table. In addition, with a decade of pitching behind me and being read hundreds of times, I may have connections to enhance the resources that you have available. Don't hesitate to approach me with this in mind. Flexibility, creativity and unconventional collaborations are... Go to bio
