Original Scripts - post author Don

Over on the Unproduced Scripts page we have thirty original works.

One that caught my eye was Stefan’s short comedy, Dating Wars about a Star Wars nerd forced to go on a date with a beautiful girl. However after his date is being bothered by a Star Trek nerd he will do anything to vanquish him. (pdf format)

It is a cute short and easily film-able.

Check it and the other scripts on the Unproduced Scripts page. – Don
