Following is the logline and synopsis for a feature length screenplay titled "Blueprint for Revenge"
BLUEPRINT FOR REVENGE - WGA REGISTERED 4/19/2019 - 1322038
As a result of an automobile accident, Jane, the only survivor in her family, becomes obsessed with taking revenge on Michael, the survivor in the vehicle that killed her family.
Jane, the only survivor in an automobile accident that kills her family, constructs a plan of revenge directed toward Michael, the survivor in his family that caused the mishap. Informed that the automobile manufacturer is liable has no bearing on her desire for payback. Having serious behavioral problems at age sixteen, a judge orders Jane to a disciplinary school for rehabilitation until she reaches eighteen. There, Jane bonds with Gloria, a drug addict. Michael unexpectedly visits the school hoping to share how each are coping with the loss of their parents. Avoiding being recognized, Jane persuades Gloria to assume her identity for the visit. Gloria, posing as Jane, lies to Michael and his friend Ruth that one of the assistants at the school tried to rape her. Convincing them to help her escape, Gloria threatens Michael with a knife demanding he give her his car. In a struggle outside the vehicle, Gloria falls into a ravine and disappears. Liable for the accident, the auto manufacture pays sizable death benefits to both Jane (now eighteen) and Michael. Before Jane is released from school, Gloria contacts her. Jane offers to share her inheritance if Gloria would accompany her to New York. In New York, Jane hires Peterson, a P.I. to prepare a dossier on Michael. When Peterson attempts to blackmail Jane, Gloria kills him. With all the background information from the dossier and a complete make over, Jane is now ready to do business with Michael. Concerned that Jane may fall for Michael, Gloria ignores Jane’s request to stay in New York and secretly follows her to Bay Village Massachusetts. There, Gloria attempts to kill Michael twice, but accidentally kills Ruth instead.
Changing her name to Ann and sporting a fashionable and friendly demeanor, Jane quickly wins Michael’s affection. Suspecting Ann is involved in the attempts on Michael’s life, Detective Blake orders Michael to stay in a motel and not to contact Ann. Coincidentally, Gloria is staying at the same motel. Ignoring Blake’s advice, Michael contacts Ann informing her of his whereabouts. Gloria gains entry to Michael’s room and tries to kill him with a knife. Realizing the charade is over, Ann enters the room as Jane. Anticipating the authorities are on their way and as a pretense to save Michael’s life, Jane struggles with Gloria and stabs her. In the presence of Detective Blake and before dying, Gloria confesses to killing Ruth and the attempts on Michael’s life. After a year, Michael appears to accept Jane’s reasons why she wanted to remain anonymous when they first met. Spending a day at the beach, Jane offers Michael a drink spiked with poison. Blake appears informing Jane that her association with Peterson has surfaced and that her attempt to avenge her family’s death was expected by both himself and Michael. Now under arrest and while escorted to the station by two Officers, the trio encounters a robbery. The Officers are shot. Jane joins the perpetrators in the back seat of their vehicle. As they flee the scene, Jane peers out the rear window with a smile on her face.

“When a City Maintenance worker cleans out a wishing well and chooses to spend the coins he finds, other people's wishes come true for him with hilarious results.”
MY INSPIRATION FOR THIS STORY:
While most of the storyline and its characters are made up and were created by me personally. The basic plot for this script was created from a comedic story my brother once told me about my Uncle who our main character is loosely based on.
We meet our main character Dale Loward. A dedicated, hardworking City Maintenance Worker in a small town in Ohio. We then find out that he has low self-confidence issues after being cheated on by his ex-wife who forces him to pay her alimony as part of their divorce settlement.
At work, Dale is given the job of draining and cleaning out a newly constructed fountain located in one of the city parks and covering it up with a tarp for the cold Ohio winter. After draining it out he finds that there is a couple of hundred dollars worth of coins at the bottom of the fountain from people who have thrown them in it thinking that it was a wishing well. When he asks his boss over the phone, who is in a meeting at the time what to do with the coins his boss misunderstands the amount of money involved and tells Dale to clean them out and use them in the break room vending machines.
Always one to do as he is told by his boss. Dale uses four quarters of the coins he cleaned from the bottom of the fountain to purchase a can of pop from one of the vending machines in the break room against the advice of his co-worker Jason. Who tries to convince Dale that there are wishes attached to the coins that people have thrown into the fountain while believing it was a wishing well. Jason warns him of the bad Karma that will follow his actions. That by using the coins for his own gain he is taking people's wishes away from them. Thus the movie's title “TAKING WISHES”.
Dale brushes Jason’s warning off calling it superstitious nonsense. Doing so causes a series of comedic events to unfold that includes a group of lovesick teenage girls who fall in love with Dale chasing him down and trapping him in a Port-a-Potty then tipping it over with Dale inside it, a Dog bites him in the ass, Dale gets a face full of nut sack while playing a friendly game of basketball with some old High School buddies and also develops a bad case of the munchies to name a few. Dale then attempts to retrieve the four coins from the pop machine without any luck.
Frustrated with the situation Dale decides to throw the remaining coins in the river in an attempt to break his curse. He then decides to man up and accept the consequences of the remaining wishes.
Throughout our story, everything that happens to Dale helps him build much-needed confidence in himself slowly giving him the courage to stand up to his ex-wife and then forgive her for the way she has treated him thus giving him the ability to move on with his life and leave her behind and create his own happiness.
A City Maintenance Worker with low self-confidence outside of work. Dale is a hard-working, good father and an excellent role model for his grandchildren. Unfortunately, He was never able to move on with his life after his divorce. Always trying to do the right thing to make others happy. Dale secretly wishes he had the ability to stand up to his gold-digging ex-wife who cheated on him yet he continues to let her ruin his lifetime and time again and take his hard-earned money. A series of events push him to build the courage he most desperately needs.
Dale’s ex-wife who is a two-timing, cheating, backstabbing, conniving ****** and a gold-digging ***** that continues to ruin his life in any way she can after their divorce. She finds joy in publicly ridiculing Dale every chance she gets. Smearing his failed marriage in his face, she blames it all on him instead of her own infidelities.
SUPPORTING CAST MEMBERS:
Dale’s co-worker (and sidekick) who warns him of the bad karma that he is creating by using the coins that they find at the bottom of a fountain while cleaning it then putting the coins in a vending machine for his own gain, thus taking away other people’s wishes from them. Jason also plays as the straight man to Dale’s comedic actions.
DALES DAUGHTER JESSICA AND HUSBAND RANDY
Dale’s daughter and son-in-law who see that (Janet) Jessica’s mother is taking advantage of him and continues to taunt him in every way she can after their failed marriage, bring it to his attention. The two then try to convince him to stand up to Janet so that he can put her behind him and move on with his life. DALES THREE GRANDCHILDREN Loren, Nate, and Jefferson who look up to Dale as a role model and love h

TITLE: Voodoo Trap
LOGLINE: A once faithful husband must save himself after he becomes dangerously involved with a beautiful woman who wants to kill him.
In a Texas city, former street hustler, Jamaca Reed, is now a car dealer in an urban community. Shannon Carmichael is the inherited leader of a racist organization built by her father, and Cody Wells is a greedy police detective that’s good at influencing others to do his dirty work. None are as they seem, since Jamaca is a reformer who is all about his family and the community he loves; Shannon appears ruthless and heartless, but secretly loathes the legacy she’s forced to rule; and while corrupt to his core and is extremely hard to catch, Cody occasionally shows signs of mercy. It is the mixture of these three characters that brings the entire city to a halt, as their sanctioned killings, beatings and hatred cause a lot of pain. Still, it all remains just under the surface – until the day one of Jamaca’s sons is murdered and Jamaca’s rage bubbles over. Now out for revenge and back to his old ways, stopping him won’t be easy.
JAMACA REED – (48, black). Jamaca is a former street hustler who now owns a car dealership. A devoted family man, he has many children with different women but is considered a father figure to all the kids in his community. In fact, everyone holds Jamaca in high esteem - (think Tony Soprano) - and each day Jamaca strives to calmly settle the tensions between his people, the police and politicians. But when dirty cop Cody Wells murders Jamaca’s biological son, “Bo”, all hell breaks loose and there is no stopping Jamaca’s thirst for revenge. (Jamaca is the main protagonist of the series and appears in every episode.)
CODY WELLS – (48, white). Cody is a very manipulative, very corrupt police detective. Although he’s tied to Shannon’s racist organization, he couldn’t care less about “the cause” and he hates Shannon’s guts. Cody doesn’t listen to anyone; he is all about getting paid and doing dirty jobs for those in power. Occasionally he displays a heart, but his true power is in knowing where all the skeletons are buried. (Think Colin Sullivan in The Departed.) That makes him dangerous and he lives with the constant reminder that his days are numbered. (As a main antagonist, Cody appears in every episode.)
SHANNON CARMICHAEL – (45, white). The daughter of an infamous white supremacist, Shannon was raised to keep the family legacy going after her father died. There’s just one problem: Shannon secretly loathes being the face of racism and hopes the “war” her militia is constantly preparing for never actually happens. (Think Jaxx from Sons of Anarchy.) Along with these pressures, Shannon must also battle the sexism and constant challenges to her power coming from within her own group. (As a main antagonist, Shannon appears in episodes 3-9 of the first season.)
This intense drama is set in a rural city in Texas. The tales of the city are detrimental in terms of its survival through the threatened “war” amongst the varying groups. Due to the characters’ diverse backgrounds, both country and city living are displayed throughout the series as we watch characters interact through love, hate, loyalty and betrayal. Underlining it all is the constant and desperate call for justice.
Jamaca is called upon because his character represents the community. Shannon represents the local opposition to his community rising up, and Cody’s greed allows him to intervene continuously throughout the season. Cody, especially, is aware of how his betrayal of the minority community will send shock waves for a race war. With the power moves from these three, we witness a chess game played with innocent lives. Many lives are lost in this series before the threatened “war” could actually begin and the audience’s emotions will carry over into every episode.

Once Camilla reaches the mysterious private beach and meets her stereotypical L.A clique, and her pill-popping, vain, shallow and filthy lifestyle she considers if she has even left the animals at the farm, but that is no match for the secret she will learn about her sister, about herself, and about the price of fame.

Logline: "A mutilated German soldier and a Jewish G.I. race to save the woman they both love from the Nazi onslaught in the Battle of the Bulge."
Brief synopsis--(note, this is a character driven drama in a WWII setting, and the "vision" calls for some large scale battles with numbers of armored fighting vehicles but there's no reason it can't be scaled back to merely some infantrymen extras and a few jeeps, motorcycles, trucks. A little CGI to show "tanks in the distance". Scaling back will not detract from the story.)
"Wehrmacht Sergeant Erich Brandt, a dreamer and artist, is felled by a Russian shell in 1944. His face is mutilated and he is mistakenly listed as KIA. Distraught over his horrifying appearance, he becomes slowly unhinged and obsessed with sketching all the dead he's seen in four years of war.
Katherine, an ethnic German farm girl living just inside Belgium in the village of Trois Ponts, is Brandt's young wife. Trapped on the farm by her sense of duty to her bedridden, manipulative mother, Katherine yearns to be free. She is notified of Brandt’s death just before the U.S. Army occupies the area, and the mistake is never corrected.
Sergeant Ben Glassman is a U.S. Army artillery forward observer, a German Jew who was sent to America as a boy to escape the Nazis. He feels more German than Jew and believes the Nazis to be an aberration, a brief madness that has seized Germany. His driver and radio operator, Joe, a NYC Jewish cabbie, an older man who joined the Army to escape a dull, impoverished family life, vehemently disagrees. Joe asserts the only way to fix Germany is to smash them in battle and utterly defeat them. Ben, conflicted, can barely perform his duty as he is reluctant to kill Germans.
Ben meets Katherine as he wanders the Ardennes alone in a jeep, lost in his inner conflict. Starving, she has been trading sex for food with G.I.s. Ben, taking pity on her, brings her food. She is touched by his kindness and they become lovers.
The Germans launch their Ardennes Offensive and Brandt and Ben (and Joe) converge on Trois Ponts one night, both intent on taking Katherine to safety. They must hide in Katherine's cellar when Brandt's force seizes the village. Brandt, realizing he can only offer Katherine madness, relents and insists she go with Ben. But Ben has been wounded in the leg in a shootout with his commander because he refused to execute an artillery strike on the village. He awakens from a faint to discover Joe preparing to call in the strike himself. Joe confesses he really joined the Army to show his young sons he was something more than "a god**** cabbie." He gives Ben, Katherine, and Brandt five minutes to escape. Their attempt is foiled by a German patrol and Brandt sacrifices himself to enable Katherine and Ben to get away. But Ben is shot and dies just as the barrage falls, obliterating the village. Alone, Katherine flees into the forest, intent on the hiding spot Brandt had meant to share with her."

i very much could have what you need. My name is Robb Chase. I'm a self-published author and screenwriter/film-maker. My novels are in the fantasy/mythology genre with some mystery and romance as well. robbchase.weebly.com I'll send a script once we've had time to discuss this. I am hoping to make a film series to pitch to streaming services based on my novels. I believe the timing for that is ripe, as new streaming services are forming and are in need of serialized or even episodic material, of which I can provide in ample quantity and quality. I easily have enough written material for at least five seasons of 15 episodes. Of course it doesn't have to end there either, as I am always writing new material/. I also have many stories that precede the start of the series that would make for excellent back story. I hope to hear from you soon; sincerely Robb Chase.
Hope the week is going well. I’ve got a surreal contained horror called INTERTWINED that I think would be great for _production company__
(A man runs away from his wife and has to face his past wrongs when he moves into a strange old apartment building).
INTERTWINED is a feature horror script that contains a lesson about life which everyone should wake up to ..We are all tested in life by a higher power and through these tests we get what we deserve or NOT and there you discover the lesson ... did we think thoroughly or just act .. Ultimately the lesson is sometimes created in the working harder part before we can achieve the future we are seeking . INTERTWINED will have you reflect on your punishments if your plans or choices end up destroying others even if you don’t succeed and it was only a thought . the constant reminder and reality that this higher power is watching our steps ,hearing our thoughts and knowing our minds and hearts in our choices and actions towards goodness and evil ...
Finally , INTERTWINED is about what we create in our choices leading to a life of heaven and or hell , simply a mirror reflection and repeat of our full circle of life and death .
Let me know what do you think please and if you liked I’m more than happy to send the script .

Back in the car, Ace told the gang about his previously failed Job that made him a fugitive and also his ex gang tried to kill him. Mr Peterson's spending some time with his mistress and illegitimate son which didn't go well because he was called back at the office, just then the gang trailed him to the neighbourhood just to see him leave again before they could grab or tail him because Fred didn't get in the car on time after a squabble with Ace.
Ace was mad and fought with Fred on the street, about quitting the gang to go solo. Lucy gave him and Fred a piece of her mind before giving them an ultimatum to behave themselves or else she won't help them accomplish the job, they reluctantly agreed so they set out to ambush Mr Peterson at his home.
Meanwhile Carl goes to "JB" a local drug dealer and club owner to ask for a coke without paying, using the job Ace is pulling as leverage. JB refused and threw him out, just then Joey walked in to collect his coke. Jb tells him Carl knows where Ace is, he goes after Carl and gave him coke for the information. While the gang's waiting at Peterson driveway, Lucy talked her father blaming her for her mother leaving, refused to send her to college, couldn't wait for her to leave the house after high school, her ex who dumped her and not getting a college degree.

Title: Tides Inn – Shock from the Deep
Genre: British TV Mystery
Venue: The centerpiece is the ‘Tides Inn’, a quirky, personality plus, rustic, one-of-a-kind pub located on the sea on the rugged English Yorkshire coast, that occasionally gets cutoff from the mainland by the high tide, which is sometimes ill-timed.
Logline; This mystery immediately jumps off with a bizarre, unique, well-thought out murder and escape; leading to a tangled and baffling investigation, enlivened with colorful, eccentric suspects; and ending in a solution provided by a completely off-the-wall, accidental incident,
Short Narrative: Murder at the Tides Inn.
Two women, enjoying cocktails on a scenic, tranquil deck. But what happens next is anything but tranquil. A grotesque, green figure shoots up in front of them. A murder – an escape - a mystery, in the blink of an eye.
This script presents an inventive plan for its mystery, challenging the viewer to solve a seemly impossible whodunit, commencing with a creative act for the murder, and culminating in a surprising, shocking out-of-the-box finale. Several oddball characters emerge as prime suspects adding to Police Sergeant Dawn Thompkins’s challenge. The murderer is finally abruptly exposed by a crazy, unusual, unintentional development
This screenplay is submitted as a low budget stand-alone script. However, a second script with the unique pub as an anchor is complete and available.
If you are interested in obtaining any further information, or the completed script, please let me know. Thank you for your consideration.

Why is Kristyn A. Kutter?
Kristyn Amelia Kutter breathes self-hatred, depression and loneliness like air. She constantly fears her secret cutting behavior will be found out. She feels nothing without a cold blade touching her skin when life sucks. A sudden tragic event with her best friend, Maddison, lands Kristyn at a crossroad. She must decide to stop cutting and allow her scars to heal (physically, mentally and emotionally) or continue self-destructing. But will she be able handle the truth about herself?
Why is Kristyn A. Kutter? is a raw portrayal of a saucy teenage girl stuck in a miserable life that offers nothing. She must walk a bumpy road of self-discovery and learn who she is, why she seeks physical pain to cure her emotional pain, and if she can break destructive patterns or just call it quits like Maddison did. Beautiful, but awkward. Fragile, yet able. Lost, but still existing. Headstrong, yet submissive. Crass, but delicate. A truth seeker, but a liar, too. Kristyn is the kind of girl you love to hate.
"You may know my name, but not my life story. To be honest, it’s rather cliché for a girl of seventeen and three-quarters. But it’s far from boring. Self-loathing. Depression. Loneliness. Liar-liar pants on fire. Secretive. Rebellious. Blah-blah-blah-blah. You get the idea.
I feel absolutely nothing until a razor blade touches my skin. I’m known to do other crazy things to myself out of pure spite. Yeah, I hate myself that much. I’ll take hits of MDMA and dance until dawn trying to forget. Other times, I’ll randomly hookup with total ******* when my self-esteem lands in the loo. Which is pretty much all the time, lately. Bugger!
My best mate, Maddison, killed herself. ****** I guess she couldn’t handle life. Staring down at the random cuts on my body, I can’t say I’m doing that much better. But, end up in a red mahogany casket with white velvet interior, like Maddison? I’m not sure.
Maddison’s death, Jamey (my ex and an absolute tosser) and teen drama from Claire and the Posh Miss Perfects have forced me to make a choice. Deal with my issues or keep repeating the same self-destructive behavior over and again, expecting a different result.
You may have heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through or where I'm going. You’re ‘bout to find out."

my book would make an amazing movie and my editor even said she would make up a script. I will leave a link to my book and would
appreciate you letting me know if this is something you may be interested in?
Thank you sincerely,
My screenplay is an adult-oriented neo-noir set in the suburbs of Boston in June 1986, against the backdrop of the Celtics’ drafting of Len Bias and the subsequent tragedy. In a time when memories of the city’s school desegregation crisis are still raw, a young woman navigates being in an interracial romance while working for the local crime boss, whose blessing she has to run a shooting gallery for the area’s drug addicts and take other measures to combat the HIV epidemic. Her tenacity and her privileged position in the town’s social structure (her godfather, dead of AIDS, was a good friend of the boss) means that she has been able to balance those two divergent sides of her life with a relatively low amount of racist and sexist backlash. But when she learns of an existential threat to her gallery from an unexpected foe, that balance turns suddenly precarious, and in the span of a week, her life and sanity slowly, then rapidly, unravel.
Hope you're interested. Thank you!
I hope you are well.
My name is Tom MacTavish and I’ve written a gritty Christmas tale titled, “Oh Christmas Wreath” that I’d like to send to you.
Title: “Oh Christmas Wreath”
Logline: A Grand, 100 year old, 20 foot Christmas Wreath is torched, a small community is divided by accusations and reunited by the wreath’s resurrection and a man’s life is transformed.
“Oh Christmas Wreath” is written along the lines of a 21st century version of “It’s a Wonderful Life”. The story opens 25 years ago at a high school homecoming dance in a small community, attended by affluent and blue collar students. Jake Thomas, a tall, handsome athlete from a blue collar family attends with Kate Davis, a debutante from an affluent family, with her younger brother Chuck in tow. Kate, fueled by alcohol, goes into a jealous rage because Jake compliments Charlotte, also from a blue collar family, on her dress. Kate steals Jake’s car keys and drives head on into a telephone pole. Charlotte consoles Jake and Chuck witnesses it all and blames Charlotte for Kate’s accident.
Present Day- Charlotte, now married to Jake Thomas, goes to the town hall a week before Thanksgiving to volunteer for the annual hanging of Christmas decorations in the town square. The center piece is the magnificent 20 foot, 100 year old, grand wreath. Councilman Chuck Davis, now portly and balding, is chairman of this committee. He sees a beautiful, statuesque woman inquiring at the front desk to volunteer. He intercedes and invites her to the storage barn to see the magnificent wreath up close. She, Charlotte, wearily accepts. At the storage barn, Chuck makes unwanted sexual advances. They tussle. A gas can is knocked over. Charlotte escapes and soon after they learn of a fire. All is destroyed, including the magnificent wreath. The small community is pulled apart by false accusations of Chuck blaming Charlotte for the fire. Ultimately, the community reunites to rebuild the wreath in time for the Holidays through the generosity of an unlikely donor, Kate Davis. Chuck Davis is transformed throughout the process.
I believe the timeless value of forgiveness, love and redemption are universally relatable and will appeal to a large audience. This Christmas story can bring in annual, residual revenue for many years.
Thank you for your valuable time and consideration. Please let me know if I can send you my script.
With much appreciation,
My name is Erwin Fowler and Im an arward winning children's book author also the writer, producer of the feature drama "Pressure Pleasure Pain"
It's about a high school basketball Phenom who comes into contact with forces of antagonism, mainly pre-marital sex and HIV, which can derail his bright future.
I am confident you'll enjoy the read.
Thank for your time and attention.
When her father has a second stroke, Alex makes a desperate plea for a miracle, not knowing if or who will answer her prayers, until it is too late.
Up and coming marketing/advertising representative Alex Armstrong finds her world turned upside down when her father falls ill due to a devastating stroke that leaves him on the brink of death. As if this was not daunting enough news, Alex finds herself sharing chance encounters with David, the outwardly handsome but intense neighbor living in the apartment directly across from hers. However, David is not all that he appears to be and harbors nefarious intentions.
As time progresses and her father’s condition takes a turn for the worst, Alex finds herself suddenly blessed by Lady Luck when she lands a major international account and, consequently, a prestigious promotion. The floodgates barring the fortuitous events explode with a new, stunning revelation: her father has made a miraculous recovery against all fatal odds. For the first time in a while, Alex feels the hope that her life can finally resume a normal path.
Life, as it would seem, was finally beginning to look up.
Alas, Alex comes to the hastily realization that dark forces beyond her control have been set into motion when two of her friends turn up gruesomely murdered. With growing suspicion of Alex’s innocence in relation to the murders, the police and outsiders start to question her. All too quickly, the seemingly perfect reality of the past few days has started to crumble before her very eyes.
Plagued by horrific nightmares, Alex finds herself spiraling into a veritable hell, questioning the intentions of the people she assumed were on her side. For, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

“Cadets of Honour” is a particularly interesting and engaging book due to its unique content, covering the military training of cadets in the Nigerian Defence Academy. The story is striking for its realistic and memorable characters, as well as its strong and often times funny stories. Though some development will probably be necessary, this book should be considered for development into a screenplay.
If the author does choose to develop this book further, it should almost certainly be as a feature film screenplay. This material could also be adapted into a TV series, due to its many characters, their anecdotes, and the prolonged nature of the first year of training. Nonetheless, that would require working a fair amount to expand the original source material. Likewise, this material could be adapted into a piece of theatre, as the emotional, mental and physical intensity would only be heightened in live theatre. Nonetheless, a theatre performance would not be able to capture the visual scope of this book, ranging from camping and outdoor training to large set-pieces of drills, hazing, parties and parades. Due to the large cast and intense visual elements of military training, as well as the structure inherent in the story, “Cadets of Honour” is best suited for adaptation into a feature film.
One of the strongest elements of this book is its strong cast of characters. The main character is driven to succeed, but at time is faced with painfully insurmountable challenges. In addition, he is surrounded by memorable and different characters who all deal with the pressure of training in different ways. By creating these unique and strong characters, the author has provided any future adaptation with a strong base for action. One of the reasons that these characters are all so strong is because they are constantly faced with difficult choices, and within a short amount of time make decisions. These characters are thus constantly weighing their desires against their needs. Similarly, the characters are also provided with a dark side, in which they seek revenge against their aggressors and the incoming class of recruits. This dark and honest look at humanity provides a realistic characterization that stands out as quite skillful. Any screenwriter will take advantage of the strong characters and characterization in this book in creating an adapted screenplay.
The story and concept of this book are also quite strong and will be useful in the adaptation. The concept is a tried-and-true one – following the hazing and training of a group of cadets. This idea has been used in several other successful films, including “Full Metal Jacket” and “An Officer and a Gentleman.” Nonetheless, the fact that this story takes place in the NDA makes it unique. This facet sets up what ultimately becomes a much more interesting story – one of survival and overcoming a very violent culture of hazing and seniority within the Nigerian Army. The uniqueness of this perspective also allows the author to provide many details and descriptions that help ground the audience in a unique reality. This rich use of detail is particularly striking during the hazing as well as when Nkemakolam and Ike travel on their vacation leave. These kinds of details will be particularly interesting to Western audiences with limited experience in Nigeria and Africa.
As violent and daunting as the training and hazing are in “Cadets of Honour,” the tone is still surprisingly reassured and light. By weaving in a fair amount of humor, the author has assured that any screenplay adapted from this material will be unique but also accessible to a large swathe of audience. For this and the reasons listed above, this book has a great deal of potential and should be considered for adaptation into a film screenplay.
Seeking interest in my feature film screenplay, a war drama, THREE BRIDGES. Or as a calling card for rewrite or development work.
Logline: "A mutilated German soldier and a Jewish G.I. race to save the woman they both love from the Nazi onslaught in the Battle of the Bulge."
While the story as is incorporates large battle scenes, with 3 main parts and a few supporting roles, along with some extras, I think this could be done on the cheap with a little CGI. Settings are some European forests, Russian plain, a small German city and a few small German and Belgian villages.
I have with me a screenplay that is something unique and most importantly thrilling, emotionally intense and dramatic.
"Coin Of Fate" (copyrights) 2019
Logline is :An horrific event causes a young well-respected mixed-race American doctor to question his oath which in turn sends him on a pulsating journey from the tropical paradise of Jamaica to the capital of Western Europe's sovereign state, Belgium to find the men responsible with more risk than luck on his side.
A small segregated town in Allenville, Mississippi in 1960.
When a tragic event occurs in someone’s life, it can have a major impact on them. It can cause them to have mental and physical issues. Carrying the weight of their past can be devastating. This is the story of an African American, eight year old girl, name Cerena Wailes. Cerena has two brothers and seven sisters.
She is the sixth child of the Wailes family. Cerena is a person that pulls and needs a sense of belonging. She tries to fit in, even when she knows she doesn’t belong. Cerena stutters when she gets excited, so she tries to stay low key and not talk much. She is a tomboy, who loves to walk barefoot and help her daddy and granddaddy mow the yard.
One day her entire world turned upside down. She was sexually violated by her older brother. Cerena (CeeCee is her nickname) was violated in March 1966, at the tender age of eight years old. The molestation continued until she was eighteen years old. Sexual molestation from her brother, uncle and two male cousins caused this bubbly, energetic, vibrant little girl to become stuck in a web of pain.
Her innocence was taken away one Saturday morning, in her bedroom. While playing tag, baseball, and other fun games with her friends and dolls with her female cousins, she was introduced to a life she knew nothing about. This incident left little CeeCee totally confused. She wanted to ask questions and needed answers, but she had no one to confide in.
While CeeCee didn’t understand the world she was in, all she knew was she wanted to be free. According to her, this world was so unpleasant. Her dreams were shattered, she felt like she was a target of not becoming all that she wanted to be, because of the senseless act that was done to her.
Even though CeeCee was fragile, quite, known as a tomboy and had dreams, of becoming whatever she desired, she felt like she couldn’t. Her mind was suppressed by the incidents that occurred in her life.
She felt like a slave to her predators, she believed what they told her. “Don’t tell anybody” or “If you tell, they will not believe you”. Every time the incidents occurred she heard those words. She laid there helpless and didn’t know what was happening and why it was happening.
Even though, CeeCee is a member of a strong Christian family, they also were dysfunctional. Henry Wailes, CeeCee’s father, married Hannah, when she had four children and jealousy arose among the children. CeeCee is a member of the youth choir, sunshine band and active in Sunday school.
From the teachings of her Pastor, school teacher, not to mention the upbringing of her parents, she still didn’t understand why God allowed something like that to happen to her. Here’s a precious innocent little girl depending on God to take care and watch over her, didn’t understand why He was allowing this to happen to her.
The concept (whatever happens in the family, stays in the family) did more harm than good. She was walking around frustrated, upset, resentful, bitter and powerless. She wanted to know what was going on and why was this happening to her. She was the only one getting hurt, while the other person or persons was having their way with her. They were also living their life to the fullest, while she just existed.
CeeCee dealt with this web of pain until the age of thirty two years old. She was tired of sabotaging friendships, driving good people out of her life, due to her pain of her past. The baggage of her past was extremely heavy. She wanted to be totally set free. She was completely healed, delivered and set free when she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior.
She also discovered holding it in, allowed the person to have power over her. The very people who violated her controlled her happiness. When the perpetrator walked in the room, she would leave the room.

I have written the published book Saved at Sea and now adapted the book to a screenplay SAVED.
I have written the screenplay and can send it to you.
A little about the story...
This is the true story of Michelle Hamilton who for 3 terrifying days, clung helplessly to her small capsized canoe in the Sulu Sea, the Philippines. Menaced by hungry sharks, enduring tropical storms and with no food or water, Michelle hovered near death. Hanging onto the capsized canoe, wearing only a bikini and flippers, Michelle is miraculously rescued by a passing boat of Filipino fisherman; who are convinced she is a mermaid.
It is clear, that true stories are very popular, especially in the world of Christian movies. I have no doubt, that with the right cast, budget and producer that this movie SAVED, will be every bit as well received, not only in the Christian arena, but also in the secular world as the top grossing Christian movies based on true stories.
Naturally I am open to further re-writes of this script and with some scenes added or deleted, depending on the demographic you are wanting to reach.
In all honesty, I have been very transparent about who I was as a person before I got lost at sea - a sinner - very much in need of saving. I have bared all in the hope that this movie will reach other people in a similar situation. I am committed to reaching people just like I was. A 22-year-old, full of pride and self-reliance, very worldly and not in need of a Savior… at least that’s what I thought. Until I found myself lost at sea, in the dark alone, close to death and with nowhere else to turn.
My mother, who had just become a Christian 3 months earlier, had accompanied me on this holiday. Just prior to getting lost at sea, she professed her new faith and told me ‘That if I was ever really down on my knees, to cry out to God and He would save me.’ Her words came back to me, when I was without hope, clinging to an upturned canoe in the middle of the Sulu Sea. I called out to God and He audibly spoke to me.
I had many supernatural experiences out there in which I saw angels and was protected by them from sharks attacking me. I was eventually found by Philippine Fisherman who believed I was a mermaid.
This story has all the elements that will make it a great film. Survival, drama, romance, the love between parent and child, supernatural encounters from angels, sharks trying to attack, rescue, finding God, redemption, and best of all its a true story with a happy ending.
So, here is the script and I look forward to you reading it and hearing from you.
I have a script, "Long Deadly Night."
It's a one location action thriller, fits well as film noir.
An assassin between jobs, hold up in a rooming house,
reluctantly protects the roomers from a gang of rogue plain-clothed cops.
In this script, there's humor. There's a little romance. There's a
moral, which is: We must look out for each other. It is a one-location
action, suspense, thriller. The professional assassin has marital arts

A desperate street musician becomes an unsuspecting mule, or so her handlers think.
Striking FELICITY, 30s, plays her beat-up cello for donations at Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Her playing attracts a Canadian, OLIVER, 30s and his business partner, CONRAD, 60s. In time, Felicity and Oliver fall in love so deeply, that she even forgives him when he accidentally breaks her cello. He gets it repaired and to make it up to her, invites Felicity and her daughter, OUIJA, 8, to come north to Canada with him.
When Oliver is murdered there, she becomes a suspect. But Conrad comes to her rescue, spirits Felicity and Ouija away to a private island in British Columbia. One night, while Felicity and Ouija sleep, TWO ARABS visit Conrad. Conrad peels away the repair on Felicity’s cello exposing a priceless manuscript stolen from the Iraqi Museum after the fall of Saddam. Conrad sells it for millions. After the Arabs leave, Conrad tries to murder Felicity and her daughter, but after a fierce struggle, Felicity chokes Conrad to death with her cello bow. Or so she thinks. After one last fight to the death, Felicity and Ouija escape in Conrad’s cabin cruiser – with the cash.
On the water, Felicity’s smile fades into a flashback to the opening scene. While playing in Seattle, she overhears the conversation between Oliver and Conrad. They need to find a mule to smuggle a priceless manuscript to Canada to exchange it with the Arabs. She turns toward the men, opens her legs invitingly around the cello, and beckons them to her with her eyes. Now it’s clear that she chose them, was setting them up -- not the other way round.

This is Jon Charles’ first screenplay
Hello, I am contacting you in regards to an inquiry about a screenplay that I wrote. The script is based on a group of inmates who are interviewed inside a federal prison. Below is a brief synopsis.
A series of fictional interviews with inmates who are each serving a life sentence in a federal penitentiary.
All inmates discuss harsh realities of prison life. With compelling, dramatic dialogue -- each inmate discusses themselves, the prison community, and other various aspects of their crime which tie them back to their past. Five inmates who are each serving a life sentence are chosen to be interviewed. The first inmate is a mid 50's black male convicted of manslaughter after hitting a man with his car during a shootout. This character has a few scenes without him talking that really give the film a deep dramatic introspection into inmate #1's character. The second inmate is a mid 30's white male convicted of selling narcotics at a high scale level. His uncle plays a role in a few scenes serving as a side character and teacher to inmate #2. The third inmate is a mid 40's convicted serial killer who preyed upon adult women during a three year rampage. He has one depressing and daunting scene in the film where he digs a grave and later fills it back in. His character is southern with an accent. Inmate #4 is a mid 30's white male convicted of killing his girlfriend and another male after catching them cheating. He serves as one of the lead roles in the film as a tipping point toward the action at the end. The fifth inmate is a 20 year old white male convicted of murdering a gas station attendant after a botched robbery. He is the youngest inmate of the five. The film also features a counselor, a young social worker, and the warden/guards very briefly. This film helps to show the raw aspects of prison life and the community that surrounds them. Toward the end of the film we are introduced with a conflict between the prisoners and the staff as a fight breaks out in the final scene.
If you would like to read this screenplay I will gladly send it to you for approval.
