Story Time is a revised version of a previous book titled The Story Book. In this volume only the top seven screenplays of my 27 script collection are included. These are the stories that made the rounds in national and international screenplay competitions, as far as the finals. Both Saber-Toothed Cat and Storm Shadows made the finals in two popular script contests. The five others included here made it as far as the semi-finals.
About Storm Shadows:
Of the 22 unproduced screenplay shorts and 5 features, Rat’s Bite was the first screenplay written, now around a 20 page short Rat’s Bite made its first shorts script competition debut at the American Gems Short Screenplay Competition, then originally 13 pages long and drove to the Quarter Finals of that contest.
Rat’s Bite was rewritten several times since then and was entered in Anything But Hollywood Short Screenplay Competition where it rose to the Semi Finals. After major rewrites, Rat’s Bite was renamed and registered as Storm Shadows then entered in the Writer’s Place under short screenplay/teleplay competition, there it reached the finals
Rat’s Bite still exists under its original title now separated from its longer offshoot, Storm Shadows. The future goal of the Rat’s Bite-Storm Shadows scripts is to create another longer version, a full featured screenplay which has already begun.
