Documentary Scripting

I recently researched and wrote the CultureSonar documentary, Woodstock: 3 Days That Changed Everything which aired on hundreds of public television stations nationwide.  It's currently ranked as one of Amazon's "hot sellers."  Here's the trailer:

Product Copy

Acorn Media/Washington, DC hired me to create the DVD wrap copy for a series of their products.  This one is for a BBC presentation of "Blandings," which had two things to really recommend it:  PG Wodehouse, and the great Jennifer Saunders of "Absolutely Fabulous"  (love!).  [click to enlarge]

Broadcast/Short Form

AdLarge Media/NY needed a series of short-form spots for the military insurance company, USAA.  Here's a sample script (PDF file).

Broadcast/Long Form

I have years of experience in writing scripts for broadcast properties.  Backtrax USA is a long-running, award-winning syndicated program, celebrating 80s and 90s hits.  Here's a sample script. (PDF file)

Web Content

American Towns Media/CT hired me to write hundreds of articles that could be used as hyper-local content for their clients.  This was an especially fun project, because it capitalized on both my love of research and of learning lots of random stuff (there's a reason I passed the test for "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire" on several occasions).  Here are just a few samples.

TV Proposal

A pitch for a health/lifestyle show, hosted by Oz Garcia -- a NYC nutrition expert whose clients include stars like Kim Cattrall and Fisher Stevens.  This was a fun project, because I not only wrote the proposal, but helped develop the concept, and was on-set to quickly adapt the scripting, etc. (PDF file)
