Free Screenplays & Scripts


The Free Screenplays & Scripts section holds some of the short scripts that I've written that you can use for your own films. If you want to shoot them yourself, please do so with no fee for screenwriting (just a screenwriting credit, please).

If you want to modify/adapt them and shoot them, please do so with no fee for screenwriting (you must still list me as a co-writer ;-) though). If you do shoot a film based on one of my scripts, send me some information about it and I'll help you promote it.

My Living Memory A ghost story script with a little Twilight Zone in it (19 pages)

Printing Trouble The first short film I shot. This taught me a lot about filmmaking and was great preparation for starting to work in Hollywood. It gave me a great idea of how much I didn't know. (14 pages)

Autumn A small script that I shot as a proof-of-concept for some motion graphics I was working on. Good for a super-short short (2 pages) -- Coming soon

Please also check out the interview with Jack Sekowski, co-writer of scripts for such films as "Who's Your Daddy?" The script for Who's Your Daddy? is available for download at the bottom of the interview.
