Telling stories through screenwriting has always been a passion for me. Years ago I wrote a feature film entitled, "My Brother's Keeper", which is a suspense/drama about a young carpenter who poses as his genius younger brother who's in his final semester at Princeton, but just in a near fatal car wreck. Sounds intense, I know!
Within the last few years I've written mostly comedy in the forms or sketches, short films, jokes, a series pilot and more. Even advanced my skills by taking writing classes at both Second City and Improv Olympic here in Chicago. Not to mention completing the Second City Training Center Improv program which I highly recommend to everyone.
Here's some titles I've written over the years, so if something sounds intriguing, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll shoot it your way.

WHAT'S SO SCARY?
Logline: "When 5 friends share what scares them the most, one has the most unexpected answer."
Ghosts? The supernatural? Or not getting your taxes paid in time? Everyone has something that frightens them a bit, however we won't know unless we ask. That's the setting for this unsuspecting short film I wrote/produced and you'll never guess what scares this group of friends.
Pilot reading - Scott Free
Logline -“To make up for unpaid time, freelance copywriter Scott Bryant finds interesting ways to even things out.”
That’s the idea. Pretty cool huh? Ever think you want something but just can’t have it? That’s what Scott Bryant thought however he went out and got it. Follow along on his quest for getting what he deserves, without the cost, in my pilot episode staged reading of “Scott Free”.
Here's a couple samples from my Improv Olympic SNL sketch writing class which poke a little fun at my career. Enjoy.
