Synopsis/Details: 

"Apocalypto" meets "Jurassic Park"!

From the success of the recent Jurassic World and its many lesser imitators, it seems that the public never grows tired of dinosaurs!

Set in the days just before the arrival of the White Man, this is the story of a great hunter and warrior, Ngomo Malumba, who heroically leads his people in battle against Africa's legendary monsters that according to myth live among its vast uncharted mountains, swamps and rainforests.

"Thunder Lizards of the Bakongo" is a high octane actioner set against the unforgettable beauty of Africa's wilderness. When a distant natural disaster causes monsters to invade the village of Numbani just as Ngomo weds lovely Iola, he and his courageous fighters face the fearsome adversaries virtually hand-to-hand, without access to gunpowder, lasers or mechanical weapons of war.

If you'd like to view the script or synopsis for this unusual but heroic story, which has significant franchise and alternate media (ie. graphic novel) potential, I look forward to sending the PDF(s) to your attention. (Also available as Pilot + Episode One)

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
