The Writer: Steve Cleary

Hi. I write screenplays for movies that I 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 geek out on it over dinner and drinks afterward. Shorts and Sketches listed here as "Available for Free" are for non-exclusive use... and please notify me so I can see how it turned out :^} Check out my Instagram micro-series, ManHeat , where I deliver some of my favorite cliche lines and stock phrases from action movies and television.
