Re: Screenplays Wanted w/500 k Budget or Less


The Cullens are coming home for Thanksgiving. This includes Joe Cullen and his girlfriend Becks, a couple of cops dealing with Joe's recent shooting of a black teen. Chris Cullen, a public defender doing his best to distance himself from an all cop family. And Marnie Cullen, the youngest of the siblings who brings her new black boyfriend Kevon Harris home for the holidays. This proves poisonous to Joe, Chris and their mother Janet, a woman still dealing with the recent passing of her veteran detective husband. A cop killed at the hands of a young black drug dealer.

A PARTY FOR JOEY concerns a once close family attempting to mend broken relationships and face the demons of their past and present. A one location, dialogue driven drama in the spirit of The Family Stone and Myth of Fingerprints.

"The Choirboy’s Confession"

A struggling black teenager’s dream is to go to college but he must first keep his brother out of trouble until things get complicated when a man he saves thinks he’s an angel.

Deshaun hopped on his bike on a blistery cold night to ride home after working at the gas station. One of the two jobs he worked to save for college. He arrived home to find his troubled brother, Jamar, walking out the door with his best friend, Stick, who was a wannabe gang banger. Jamar was up to no good and Deshaun could sense it.
He dropped off his books and went to follow Jamar, finding Jamar and Stick standing outside a window at a nearby house. Despite a few attempts to stop his older brother from breaking in and being knocked to the ground, Deshaun was following his brother in through a bathroom window. Meanwhile, the owner of the house, Archie, was driving home and drinking whiskey. He was going to attempt suicide. Jamar was the first one out when Archie’s back was turned but Deshaun was trapped. Archie went straight into the bathroom and swallowed a handful of pills Deshaun, fearing something was wrong, checked in on Archie who had already crumpled to the ground. Archie looked up to see Deshaun, who had a fuzzy haze behind him making him appear as an angel. Archie knew at that moment that God did love him as he reached out to Deshaun.
Deshaun had him cough up the pills before calling 911 and crawling back out through the bathroom window. It was a typical scene at home, confronting Jamar on his troubled ways and then storming off to do some studying while telling Stick to go home.
Deshaun’s life would only become more complicated as Archie was destined to find him, convinced that Deshaun was an angel sent to save him. Meanwhile, Deshaun was trying to keep Jamar from doing drugs and more importantly, away from the neighborhood dealer, JJ and Stick, whom he despised.
Archie's life improved as Deshaun's got worse. The stress of school, work, and keeping an eye on his brother and grandmother was making it difficult to focus. Even worse, was hiding from Archie, who spotted him in the church. Deshaun began to question his own existence, wondering if he was an angel or at least held any special powers. His greatest relief would come from getting his brother out of the grips of drugs and being there for the dealer and prays for him as he lay dying in a hospital bed after being shot by the police and everybody else had abandoned him. Archie was able to help with a scholarship as Deshaun would realize his dream, going to college.

"Prodigal" has all the makings of an indie festival darling, with shining coverage and contest recognition.

Logline: A repressed grad student's life implodes when her troubled stepbrother's return from rehab disrupts the family's stability.

The story follows a mixed-race, blended family. Our heroine, Zora, is the demure daughter of a Pennsylvanian politician. When her charismatic stepbrother, Alex, comes home from rehab, Zora is drawn to him. She struggles to find the balance between being her own woman and pleasing her hyper-critical father, who is vehemently opposed to her getting close to Alex. As Zora and Alex form a relationship, scandalous family secrets start to unravel, and the truth behind Alex’s dark past comes to light.

I'm an optioned and independently produced writer with a laundry list of contest/festival honors.

Subject "A" Male

Log Line: A guy trapped in a windowless room struggles to figure out how he got there and how to escape.
This is a unique script with limited cast and limited locations... lot's of inside narration.

Title: "The Maneuver"
Logline: A tormented Socialite fights to prove her innocence after a wealthy industrialist frames her for causing a fatal car wreck.
     My name is Matthew H Emma and I have authored a drama titled "The Maneuver" I would be honored if you took the time to read. Recently, one of my other scripts was purchased by a production company.
    "The Maneuver" combines high stakes and intriguing plot twists to produce an exciting, dramatic work. The story centers on Countess Maria de Canadas, an unconfident, struggling, ex-alcoholic Socialite attempting to put her life back together following an event which made her the scourge of the elite, Long Island, New York community she resides in and placed her at odds with husband Ted. Things go from worse to horrendous when Maria is involved in a car wreck that costs several people their lives.
    Maria knows she is innocent, but unfortunately sustained temporary memory loss in the accident. Before she is released from the hospital, Claude DePuis, a wealthy businessman and New York Gubanatorial candidate, exploits Maria's condition and uses the ghosts from her past, makes her the prime suspect in the accident investigation and ultimately frames her. However, Maria gradually regains her memory and, in the process, recalls Phillipe, Claude's son was responsible for the accident. What Maria does not realize is that Phillipe has a big secret to hide, which if exposed threatens to forever alter his and the lives of Claude and Ted. A defiant Maria continues to prove her innocence. However, Maria's probing eventually leads to the shocking discovery that her and Phillipe's past are intertwined and leads to a dramatic conclusion which places Maria's life in jeopardy.
    Thank you for your consideration. A copy of the script is available upon request.

Respectfully,
Matthew H Emma
