Black Star Diamond. Excerpt from my feature Screenplay

Written 13.9.06 The Black Star is now the world’s most expensive and rare Diamond. The stratosphere orbiting satellite keeps track of every $5.5 million plus stones. Black Star’s so dense it cannot be electronically encoded. A far cry from when this fist-size rough and uncut chunk was traded for a chance to escape the worst jail hell hole in the southern hemisphere, Fremantle, Australia in 1893. Four ingredients are uppermost when considering a diamond referred to as the 4 C’s. CARAT WEIGHT, CLARITY, COLOUR, CUT. D’s are the rarest and most desired shade of ‘white’ diamond. And will be completely devoid of color. D-flawless in color the very best grade of a diamond, and free from internal flaws or surface blemishes of any kind. Our story begins, or rather...

The Crew, some Animation characters

Logline on each, you’ll connect with drawings. Walt, Bill, Booma. Three talented Australian guys who live in the bush. Walt, Booma, Bill Guess full names. Tae & Kwon. An Adventure beyond time; A Prince…a Princess…another time…one mission. These 10th Dan Martial Art experts are not alone. Unicorn Island. From outer space, Unicorn Island looks small.

Kites. Animation

In the icy blackness of space on the dark side of the moon. They live in the shadows of those whose language and origins are unknown, and to survive they have to leave. They’ve seen another planet when testing massive prototypes and wondered. But it’s a light-year away, and they’re not the only ones on this Planet with Earth its destination. Synopsis In time past, only Lichens, Moss, and huge-harmless hairy-purple Spiders inhabited the planets’ colossal Grand Canyon. The strong deafening un-tamed winds that gust to warp speeds along the ridge length are something else. Stretching out beneath the open-plains the canyon walls are laced with shadowy caves that spiral into a labyrinth of dark un-explored chambers. A mile below on the Canyons floor the gentle breeze...

The Garbos (short for Garbologists. Animation

  The idea for Children’s Cartoon/Animated Characters or Puppets or live. – people covered in a costume Dustbin. Can hardly have dead people in ‘em can you?  ;))) So what’s the matter with GARBOLOGISTS? Everyone nowadays has a job ending in ‘ologist’ The Garbos are galvanized dustbins with faces, and they talk. They’ve got feelings just like Humans. Friends, Families and enemies-us Humans. I mean, who do we think we are? Tossing all our rubbish and rotten food in them. There’s a downside to being a Dustbin. Come to think of it not too many ups either. Let’s face it. Dustbins have a lousy image. So they’re reinventing themselves, having a makeover. They want respect and are going to get it at any cost. Well, almost any. They’re having their own parade....

In the bag is a fortune in used notes. The money solves all their financial problems. So what does the ex-copper do when asked if he knows anything. Ex-Chief of West Australian Police force James Cartwright was enjoying driving north to Ningaloo Reef. From his home Perth its 1,500 miles away. It’ll take five...
