Synopsis/Details: 

In the not too distant future (maybe as early as next week?), a mysterious virus from outer space causes a mass extinction of all the writers in the world except two. This event shakes the very foundations of both Holly and Bolly Wood. Wannabe writers sitting in Starbucks around the world can no longer be heard mumbling to themselves, "What do I have to do to get a break?" In this darkish (8) page short, an unlikely scenario is offered in which two aspiring nobodies achieve overnight success completely unrelated to their questionable and dubious talents. As always, don't take anything I write too seriously and enjoy the read.

Low-ish budget, naturally occurring sets, fun.

More recently, I’m an award winning and produced scriptwriter who enjoys telling a wide variety of slightly dark and quirky stories with a dash of humor.
