The Writer: Steve Cleary

Hi. I write screenplays for movies that I myself would pay good money to see in a theater -- "event movies", where friends gather to make a night of it, load up on popcorn and Milk Duds, and perhaps have dinner and/or drinks afterward. Shorts and Sketches listed here as "Available for Free" are for non-exclusive use. Check out my Instagram micro-series, ManHeat , where I deliver some of my favorite cliche lines and stock phrases from action movies and television. Contact me via e-mail >> Go to bio
