THE PARALLAX PROJECT – YOSEMITE
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK Has the largest cluster of unexplained disappearances in THE WORLD. There’s a NATIONAL PARKS SERVICE website devoted to these cases. https://www.nps.gov/orgs/1563/cold-cases.htm
Most missing reports per year of any national park. Many are found dead or alive. But too many are never found. Completely vanished.
There’s something going on in Yosemite.
Some say it’s a strange legendary creature called a Night Crawler.
Nightcrawler sightings began back in the 1990s. These strange beings are cryptids that look like pants, but are only a few feet high and are seen just wandering around. According to the experts on the Sci-Fi Channel’s Fact or Faked, faking these mysterious creatures would prove to be a difficult task. Theorists propose the odd creatures could be ghosts or aliens.
Some say it’s the curse of Chief Tenaya. His people once ruled Yosemite. Chief Tenaya’s son was killed by white settlers. Enraged, the Chief uttered a curse.
“You may kill me sir, but you shall not live in peace, I will follow in your footsteps, I will not leave my home but be with the spirits among the rocks, the waterfalls, in the rivers and in the wind; wheresoever you go I will be with you. You will not see me, but you will fear the spirit of the old chief, and grow cold.’’
Some people believe the missing persons were abducted by aliens. There are countless UFO sighting stories from Yosemite park.

REGULAR ROOMMATES is a big, broad college comedy that examines generational differences in the college experience while exploring the similarity in our need to grow regardless of age.
The story follows WILLIAM BECKER, a 50-year-old insecure, anti-college motivational speaker, and MATEO MARQUEZ, a struggling college senior, as they become unlikely roommates in hopes that the other will help them fix their life.
While navigating the complex world of being a college student, Will teaches Mateo how to build confidence by living an “I don’t give a fuck” lifestyle while immersing themselves in the insane college party scene.
This return to college also helps Will by opening his eyes to all of the things he missed when he first attended college 30 years earlier and reshapes his very public anti-college stance.
In the end, Mateo must figure out what is actually important to help shape his future and Will has to choose between his public image or a message he believes in.
Overall, REGULAR ROOMMATES is a script that blends broad comedy and heart in a modern college setting…with a tasteful amount of male nudity and fire.

THE DRUNKEN GUN
The deadliest hit man in the world is a raging alcoholic. He is at his deadliest when he is staggering drunk and totally fearless! When he decides to check in to a celebrity rehab center to get his life together a team of hit men come gunning. Now clean and sober but half the hit man he used to be he must fend off a team of deadly assassins before they kill him and a pack of the most pampered drunks and junkies in the world.
LUCKY LaSEAN is one of the world’s most feared and deadly assassins. He is also a chronic alcoholic. He is at his deadliest when he is staggering drunk. We see him on mission taking out an entire cartel of meth dealers single-handedly. He guns them down with pinpoint accuracy while being virtually un-hittable due to his lurching and staggering style of gunplay. It’s much like Shaolin “drunken boxing” only with guns. After the battle he collapses in pain! Was he shot? No! He is diagnosed with severe cirrhosis of the liver and warned that if he drinks anymore he will die within a week. To make matters worse, his wife and beloved daughter, whom he loves more than life won’t have anything to do with him until he sobers up.
Lucky decides to go to rehab and clean up. There he meets a famed pop star ANASTASIA a young rapper in her twenties. Lucky and ANASTASIA bond instantly as Lucky has no idea who she is and wants nothing from her. For Lucky, Anastasia is like a surrogate daughter and he the cool father figure she wished she had. They both clean up and Lucky becomes Anastasia’s sponsor. They help to keep each other clean. That is until a contract is put on Anastasia’s life and Lucky is given the contract.
Lucky opts to play the roll of protector instead. He must protect her from the psychopathic, vegan, health nut, known as DEPTFORD! He is an assassin as deadly if not more deadly than Lucky. Unfortunately Lucky is half the killer he was now, clean and sober. On top of that he finds himself bonding once again with his real daughter. Will lucky go back to the bottle and risk it all to save Anastasia or will he stay sober and reconnect with his family? You know the answer! He and Anastasia GET LIT and lead Deptford and his HIT SQUAD to a hipster CRAFT BREWERY for the final showdown! With an unlimited supply of intoxicants spaying all over, Lucky become drunker and more deadly than ever before. RIVERS OF BLOOD AND BEER flow as The Drunken Gun makes his last stand.
After the battle Anastasia pays for Lucky to have a LIVER TRANSPLANT. Lucky receives a fresh healthy liver courtesy of freshly deceased Deptford. Now with a fresh liver Lucky can continue his drunken, gunfighting ways — at least as long as this new liver lasts.

The biopic “Hedy,” a full-length motion picture about the life of Hollywood icon and inventor Hedy Lamarr. As a Jewish refugee from Hitler’s Austria and already a celebrity on account of her nude appearance as a teenager in the steamy German film “Ecstasy,” Hedy Kiesler (with her new stage name “Lamarr”) was signed by Louis B. Mayer. Heralded as one of the most beautiful women in the world, Lamarr pursued inventing after long days on the set. Her contributions led to a discovery that was to change the course of history and ultimately become the basis for Bluetooth and wifi.
