Feature Scripts


Wake the Ashes

by A.A. Zane

In the near future, human cloning has become accepted medical practice. They call it 'mirroring'. After her sister tragically 'delays', a determined Margo maneuvers the horrors of health insurance with a little help from her paranoid husband and their bohemian brother-in-law as they try their best to 'introduce' Margo's sister to a life without death. 


White Night

by A.A. Zane

When he's accused of leaking videos of his ex-girlfriend to a revenge porn site, amateur shutterbug Gerald Fitch takes it upon himself to clear his name. With his ex-con dad in tow, Gerry embarks on a cross-country road trip to find and confront the true culprit. But when things don't go exactly as planned, an off-beat coming-of-age story takes a darkly comic detour into the realm of sex and madness that neither father nor son could have predicted. 


Pantheon

by A.A. Zane

Amid the vast reaches of territorial space, the nature preserve of Orcades-723 waits - as “useless” as it is remote. When supply issues prompt its administrators to abandon the project, a wandering mariner named Bolie DuMaurier arrives, determined to catch a fleeting glimpse of the fabled Asuras - plague animals infected by a virus that endows its victims with telepathy and, so it is said, immortality. 


John Brown's Body

by A.A. Zane

October, 1859. An eclectic band of idealistic insurgents led by the abolitionist John Brown attempt to seize the Federal Armory at Harper's Ferry, Virginia. They hope to provoke an uprising in order to free the slaves. At once a meditation on memory and political violence, the story rebuilds the raid through the eyes of those who lived it, from its aftermath to its origins, in order to tell us who we are and who we could yet become.


Short Scripts


The Lighthouse

by A.A. Zane

Alex - the sole keeper of a 'lighthouse' suspended in an endless void - is suddenly jolted from her routine when a mysterious glowing orb emerges from the cavernous depths of space. Desperate with curiosity and smothered by loneliness, she uses her ingenuity and technical prowess to unlock the secret of the distant light.


When an aging 'captain of industry' is visited by mysterious individuals bearing odd similarities to himself, the 'Captain' prepares to defend what is his. 

Manifest Destiny

by A.A. Zane


A disgraced gourmet chef and her husband take the long weekend to unwind at their coastal vacation home only to find a community replete with disappearances, tsunami wreckage and increasingly weird seafood.

Supernormal

by A.A. Zane


After receiving numerous death threats for her work, a weary investigative journalist named Clio takes time off to care for her dying mother. Yet, as Clio transcribes her mother's old diaries, first as a hobby and later as a matter of intrigue, it becomes clear that these pages are not just a record of the past but (possibly) a window into their future.

Off the Record
