Johan Nobles, a once academically gifted young man, is intent on getting his life back on track, when he falls in love with Symphony Hayes; she saves him after a near-fatal car crash. What he doesn’t know about Symphony is that she harbors secrets that may destroy everything, including their relationship.
This is my first Screenplay, still in need of a Producer, but NOW, I have an agent.

I’m outlining another masterpiece that I suppose to finish by the end of March, but basically just starting. It’s another story that has been singing in my head for close to a year, and it’s time to get serious. I am a big time procrastinator but once I start…
It’s another high-concept comedy, and absolutely no hints will be given. All I can say, it’ll probably be controversial. I’m still waiting to receive my latest script, “All Circuits Busy”, soContinue Reading →
I had my first “Verbal Pitch” last week via Skype with Cider Mill Productions, and I had a video malfunction. He could hear, but he could not see me.
Although, I was as nervous as a Virgin at a prison rodeo (Blanch from Golden Girls), the individual I pitched to, said I did well for my first time. However, he passed on reading my script. No biggie, my first time for this script “All Circuits Busy”, and it will not be the last because I believe I have a winner.
So, I’ve decided to place my screenplay into “rehab”, so the next time I pitch, I WILLContinue Reading →
WOW, is all I can say. No, it isn’t. I posted on Stage32.com’s forum a few days ago, searching for someone to analyze my five (5)-page screenplay short, “Love Appeal”. An experienced Horror Director/Writer (Shane W.) offered to analyze it free of charge.
This is what he had to say, “Hi Dawn, Read through the screenplay. It’s a pretty unique story, not something done to my knowledge, and the quasi-silent film feel is an interesting touch. It has a nice feel to it, and it’s a good story.”
He gave me a couple of recommendations on howContinue Reading →
I have this amazing story inside my head. The title alone says a lot, but for some strange reason, when I sit down to type or write, I produce nothing, because it’s all scrambled. The words are in a maze with a blocked exit and an extremely high wall.
I don’t have writers block, I’m just a blocked writer. Maya Angelou said it best, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” She may have been speaking on another level, but not much of a difference.
I’ve written screenplays before, (two at the same time) and the words flowed like Niagara Falls in the summer. Three Screenplays, two outlines (again, at the same time), three shorts, numerous log-lines of stories I have yet to start.
I told myself, move on to the next screenplay, but the truth is, the story I’m trying to convey is not the issue, it’s M.E. My mind is restless when I’m awake, when I’mContinue Reading →
In June, the initial announcement from BET was that the TV premiere of Ava DuVernay’s 2012 Sundance Film Festival winning film (Best Director Award), “Middle of Nowhere,” was then set for this Wednesday, July 23, at 9/8c.
Earlier this month, the network moved the film’s debut back by about 10 days, to tomorrow, Saturday, August 2, starting at 8pm/7c.
So for the many of you who never got to see the film, and have been emailing me over the last year, asking if I know when it will premiere on BET,you’ll finally now have your opportunity toContinue Reading →
