DORSAL short screenplay
July 26, 2019
DORSAL is a 10 page dramedy about a kid who wakes one morning to find he’s got a dorsal fin on his back. He tries and tries and tries to conceal it, until he finds the courage to expose his identity. Very loosely based on Kaka's Metamorphosis. It’s a tense tale about the anguish of coming out. This one -- given its high and clean premise -- could eventually be parlayed into an 85 min feature.
About me: I’m a graduate of AFTRS Screenwriting. The last short film I wrote was nominated for an Australian Academy Award. I’ve had 3 Writer’s Guild nominations (winning once). I have LA representation. My Teddy Roosevelt biopic (Constitution) is with producers Nick Wechsler and Roger Birnbaum, being expanded to a series for Netflix. I recently optioned a Sally Ride biopic (The Astronaut) with the producers of Boogie Nights, United 93, Green Zone, and producing Spike Lee’s new film for Netflix. I have a thriller (National Park) in development with Beyond Films. Right now I’m adapting a book; the true story about Eleanor Roosevelt’s sexual affair with female reporter Lorena Hickok (Lady Eleanor).
Feel free to pass my email onto any producer/director who might be interested in this type of story.
