A Historically Inspired Dramatic Adventure Saga

One man's quest to reunite his family will destroy everything. Blood comes first. In the 9th century, a young but powerful Norse explorer traverses an uncharted ocean to the farthest shores of a mysterious new world. He stakes his claim and requests aid from his father in Iceland, who in turn mounts a high-stakes effort to reunite with his son. Little does the young explorer know, this new land is filled with cunning and formidable Natives, as well as a dark and evil force that threatens the lives of everyone.

History reveals the Norse people as skilled explorers and warriors, with evidence suggesting they discovered North America long before another. What if during a time when the Northwest Passage was warm, these robust people traveled around Alaska and into the shores of the Pacific Northwest? What would they encounter during a time period when the Natives were thriving and strong?  RUNESTONE presents a historically inspired Norse adventure saga filled with drama, action, and a clash of cultures never seen before.

RUNESTONE is currently finalizing development. Reg WGAw #1736595

Imperial Eight
A High Stakes Action-Adventure Film

It is the winter of 1990 and with the Cold War nearly over, the head of the KGB and seven supporters (known later as the Gang of Eight) plot in secret, with covert support from hardliners in the old guard plutocracy, to overthrow Gorbachev’s regime of glasnost (openness) and perestroika (restructuring) in an August “Putsch” (coup), in order to usher in a new era of worldwide Soviet dominance. If the subsequent destabilization results in a leader’s death and eventually to World War III, then so much the better. To finance their scheme they resort to an old Soviet method -- selling priceless artistic treasures; in this case the “missing” eight Imperial Fabergé eggs which they have discovered were never missing at all.

The only thing standing in their way is an uncomfortable alliance between an ex- KGB operative, a young Russian soldier, a Ukrainian computer genius, and an undercover Western spy. Together they commit their talents and their lives to prevent the world from being sucked into a conflict where there can be no winner, and enter into a high-stakes treasure hunting race filled with exotic locations and political intrigue. Based on actual events. 

IMPERIAL EIGHT is currently in development. Reg WGAw #1725268

Rising Seas
A Contemporary, Adrenaline Fueled Disaster Film

The year is 2028, and the cataclysmic effects of global warming have started to come to pass. Polar caps and high mountain glaciers are melting, and many parts of New York City and London are already under three feet of water. A large portion of the North American great plains have become a wasteland, with volatile lighting storms that often set the parched vegetation ablaze. Josh Derby, Founder and CEO of Fusion Dynamics, is spearheading a massive international effort to scrub carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and separate it into solid carbon and liquid water. Meanwhile Brian Kent, fellow MIT grad and billionaire industrialist, has developed a method to sequester the CO2 and burying the resulting nodules deep in impermeable salt dome caverns. 

With both ideas offering viable long term solutions but less than desirable side effects, the POTUS has authorized an international team of third party experts to assess both plans. All the while a continuing depletion of the Ozone Layer threatens an impending extinction level event, and the American government and its allies can only offer so much assistance. 

RISING SEAS is in early development/script stage. Reg WGAw #1764829
