Synopsis/Details: 

The first of a series of (so far) five fun, heart-warming, campfire-creepy, coming-of-age stories starring mixed-race youths set amidst monsters, magic and mayhem: As if poverty in a tough neighborhood isn’t enough!

Set somewhere between "Harry Potter" and “Let Me In/Let the Right One In”, this series is suitable for the tweens and up crowd and could generate gigabytes of social media.

But note, the stories are NOT appropriate for VERY young kids. For example, when the little old witch does her witchy thing on the bad guys, it could scare children away from their grandmother! As well, some serious issues are exposed, obliquely or head-on throughout the stories, just like in real life: Bullying, bigots, dealers, etc.

The "Beecroft" series (so far): (Also available as one-hour Pilot + Nine Episodes + Full Bible)

The Hag of Beecroft (103pp)
The Vampyre of Beecroft (105pp)
The Rougarou of Beecroft (104pp)

The Writer: Steve Garry

I'm here to make films, not to gain endless options for my screenplays. I'm actively pursuing attachments for my smaller scale projects before I work my way up, so I'm looking for co-producers/investors. As a result of a decade of pitching and being read hundreds of times, I 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 necessary to make films. Go to bio
