Stories from a seasoned screenwriter. Take heart! Your creative source is infinite and un-ending. Sometimes Hollywood just rips up the roadmap back to it. The bottom line is that Hollywood is not at all as bad as it sounds. Additionally, it's worse than you can imagine. Remember to pack a sense of humor.


I am a screenwriter living in Southern California. I've written screenplays for most of the Hollywood studios over the past 20 years. One of the uncredited writers of FANTASTIC FOUR, I wrote FIRE DOWN BELOW starring Steven Seagal, and the TV Movie 12:01 PM starring Martin Landau and MANEATER with Gary Busey. I have directed short films. I have written on numerous Hollywood studio assignments, some for big shot actors, some for small shot nobodies.

Pirates Steal the Treasure of Box Office

Nothing like good story telling. $132 million clams. Talk about head spinning. The biggest opening, ever.

A lot of things have to come together for this kind of success. But if it ain't on the page on the first day of pre-production, the road is less traveled.

Congrats to the maestro's of wit and light-hearted adventure tales of doom and triumph!
