1. What is your screenplay about?
After his sponsor gives him an ultimatum, a guilt-ridden ghost hunter and his comically inept and dysfunctional squad of investigators have one night to find evidence of the afterlife to save their cable TV show.

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?
Tough question. I would put it in the comedy/paranormal/mockumentary genre.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?
It shouldn’t be. It’s a TV pilot.

Spooks and goofs.

Harry Potter

It’s been a 6 year labour of love.

Two.

9. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?
Life got in the way, had to put the script away for almost 2 years before dusting it off and finishing it. By far my biggest obstacle was (and still is) trying to pairing down the script from 90 odd pages to 60.

Aside from my family, hockey, coaching and healthy living.
