Screenplay by Jim

Igor and Frankie
(family animation)

Logline: Chaos abounds at the MIT women’s dorm when Igor mistakenly creates a serum that brings stuffed animals to life. When the formula’s stolen, she must team up with Frankie, her manic inventor roommate-from-hell, to steal it back and subdue a rampaging, fluffy abomination.

This screenplay is on the Black List Top Lists (account needed to view) and is #12 for Family Features for the year on Coverfly. It has advanced to the Semifinals at the 2020 Nashville Film Festival, and was an Official Selection at the 2020 Austin Revolution Film Festival.

The Cult of Us
(romantic comedy)

Fact: Cult members do believe cults exist; they’re just incapable of believing that they’re in one.

Logline:  An uptight computer programmer tries to save his feisty roommate/secret-crush from her sketchy, business-empowerment cult. But, when she realizes it’s his flaky meditation group that’s really a cult, they must confront the harsh truth about their beliefs before they lose everything, including each other.

This screenplay has advanced into the 2015 Academy Nicholl Fellowship Quarter-Finalist round. It was a pitch finalist and Second Rounder at the Austin Film Festival. I’ve been featured in a number of national media pieces about cults, including an award-winning Dateline NBC expose about the cult leader I followed for a year (it totally seemed like a great idea at the time).
