Synopsis/Details: 

A Dark Comedy that could be considered "Dr. Strangelove for Voters"!

"None of the Above" is a story about campaign managers who struggle to keep their candidate afloat after an adored sports hero joins the race and cynical voters begin to flock to a common-sense nobody who can't even afford campaign advertising. Meanwhile, backstage powerbrokers put the test to whether they, or politicians, or citizens, actually control the whole darned show!

Here's what's unique about this story:

First of all, it's not a simple Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan rom-com with a campaign backdrop. Secondly, it doesn't pick Right/Left-wing sides.

Here, while the two solitudes comically tear themselves apart, more nefarious forces are at play. The slapstick evolves into one of the most uncomfortable endings ever -- fashioned somewhat after the German constitutional crisis in 1933, but with a twist. While the story is set in the U.K., unfortunately it's plausible in any Western electoral system.

If you'd like to view the script or detailed synopsis for this story, I look forward to sending the PDFs to your attention.

The Writer: Steve Garry

I wrote my first screenplay in 2008: A "fan fiction" sequel to my favorite film that served as a release of my pent-up wishes and hopes for what might have "happened next". This sudden writing outburst was a surprise, yet it was predicable too, for composition was my favorite subject in my earliest years of elementary school. But somewhere between then and now, I must have felt that writing wasn't a serious or possibly an attainable career. My writing methodology for my early fan fiction, and all of my original stories since, is unique because I use many of the same skills I used for decades as a software programmer. The stories must be both "logical" and "bug free". Oh, and hopefully... Go to bio
