Cadaverosity - Series Bible
Comedy • Series Bible • 7 pages
I’ve always enjoyed writing in some way, shape, or form, and when I was younger the form was songwriting. I was in a rock band in Columbia City, Indiana. A place surrounded by cornfields and cemeteries, and that’s about it. Through strong writing, successful marketing, and unwavering determination, I was able to get our band signed to a major record label. Our album was released and our first single landed a spot on the American Pie 2 soundtrack. After the band broke up, I needed to sustain my creative fix, so I started writing scripts. The non-flowery, direct style of screenwriting suits me perfectly. I started off with features then transitioned to writing grounded, dramatic shorts that surprise, which is a challenge that I thoroughly enjoy. I switched to shorts because I believe they will continue to grow in popularity and become more vital in entertainment, and this is largely due to the distraction-filled, chaotic nature of our current world. People want to be entertained and moved by a complete story, but don’t necessarily have the time or focus to devote to a feature. To address this challenge, my dream is to create a series for a streaming network – an anthology of dramatic shorts that genuinely affect people and leave them wondering where the next episode will take them emotionally. Currently, I have three short scripts that place regularly in contests and are on The Red List, with one of them holding the number one spot under that format. On the personal side, I still reside in northeast Indiana with my wife and daughter who is my entire life – just read The Cricket and you’ll see how much she means to me. I work for a medical device company and travel the country training surgeons on total hip replacement where most of the learning occurs in cadaver labs. This experience inspired my dark comedy pilot, Cadaverosity, which has also placed in competitions. I’m open-minded and always very accepting of criticism and feedback on my work. I would love nothing more than to have the opportunity to collaborate with talented people to create great films. More so, writing will always be a passion that I pursue at all costs, and I’m excited to see where it takes me.
