Sci-fi. I love it. Many of my favourite screen moments are full-on science fiction. Aliens. Predator. Terminator. Dr Who.
I’ve just been hired by to write a pilot for the TV series SENTIENT. Think Invasion of the Body-Snatchers meets The Walking Dead.
I think it’s going to be rather good.
Sentient is a multi-franchised operation run by Presence Global Entertainment in Australia, with variants in development in the USA, Germany, Australia, Russia and Africa. I’m writing the UK version. It will be set in the beautiful Lake District, in Cumbria. Expect scenery. (And aliens.)
THE DRAGON RIDER is now a finalist in the We Screenplay International Competition.
Clearly the judges like scripts where a dragon loaded with missiles flies in formation with the USAF and headbutts an alien mothership.
I know I do.
My supernatural Western screenplay A SIX-GUN FOR THE DEVIL has advanced to the semi-finals of the Stage 32 Happy Writers Search for New Blood screenwriting contest.
