I'm a movie producer working in Hollywood today

 

I've produced three Hollywood studio movies - BIO-DOME (MGM), PRIEST (Sony) and CROOKED ARROWS (20th C Fox) - all based on screenplays that I developed with first-time, unrepresented screenwriters. 

CROOKED ARROWS, PRIEST, and BIO-DOME were all based on scripts by first-time screenwriters that I developed, secured top representation for, and produced as movies with worldwide studio distribution.

Early in my career as a producer, I realized that the high-profile scripts were getting sent from the top literary agencies directly to Hollywood's biggest producers.  Therefore, I had to adopt a different strategy if I wanted to find original scripts to produce.  I began looking outside of the Hollywood system and reading the work of aspiring screenwriters.  I relied on my good taste to identify great stories, and on my development skills to shape these stores into professional screenplays.  The strategy worked.

For 20 years in Hollywood, my unique ability as a movie producer has been helping aspiring screenwriters turn professional -- with representation by top literary agencies, major studio development deals, and produced movies.

Now I'm expanding my outreach beyond referrals, to include screenwriters everywhere.

If you are an aspiring screenwriter, I will evaluate your script from the perspective of an accredited, working Hollywood movie producer.  Creatively, we will develop your script using my method and principles which have a track-record of proven successes at Hollywood's best literary agencies, top management-production companies, and major movie studios.  And from the business side of producing, we will discuss the best practical strategies for getting your script represented, optioned, packaged, and ideally, produced as a movie.
