From Hamish Porter’s “Shootin’ the Shorts” Review on Script Revolution:
No Trespassing – You’ve Been Warned!
A beautiful tailored suit, a luxury car, and designer threads.
An overgrown lawn, a rusty barbecue, and a back door with a “foreclosure” sign on it.
The first set of items, to many, symbolize success in American society. The other, humiliation and failure.
Well, in No Trespassing, the humiliator has become the humiliated. Lips parched, eyes red, and his foot caught in an unbreakable bear trap, our sharply dressed banker cannot escape the green hell he helped to create.
Try as he might, his attempts to break free produce only screams. Screams that only he hears.
A young filmmaker approached me about my collection of sketch comedy and has agreed to produce my “Wine Tasting” and “Devil’s Gulch” sketches. We’re still in the early stage of assembling a cast and crew, but we expect to begin production in the next few weeks.
I’ll provide more information, including an official announcement of the filmmaker attached, as the project progresses.

An independent producer approached me about my feature comedy script “What’s the Big Idea?” several weeks ago and has come back with an offer to option it for production. More details to come as things progress.
UPDATE 1/9/2017: The producer backed out of the option due to contract terms that were unable to be agreed upon. The good news is the script is still available!
A producer with a Academy Award-winning and commercially successful production team attached to his slate of projects has approached me to write a feature screwball comedy based on one of his concepts. Details about the project and the production team are under wraps for now, but the producer chose me due to the style of writing I put into “What’s the Big Idea?” as well as my “The Carol Burnett Show” style of writing sketch comedy.
The project is still in the early phases of development, but I’ll reveal more as things progress.
