About

 PREMISE:

      THE SNOWMAN is a horror story about a group of people, trapped inside a lone mountain cabin on the coldest night of the century, hunted by a pitchfork wielding demonic snowman which comes to life after a mysterious hat is placed upon its head.

CONCEPT:

    The idea came to me around Christmas of '94, while I was watching the seasonal special, "Frosty, the Snowman" with my 4 year old daughter.    After the kids in the cartoon had placed the hat on Frosty's head, my daughter immediately turned to me and asked what was in the hat that brought Frosty to life.    As soon as she asked that, I suddenly heard the theme from the TWILIGHT ZONE play in my head, followed by the voice of ROD SERLING asking, "What if something evil were in the hat?"

       Although I thought, the idea of a "Killer Snowman", was an interesting concept for a story, there was just too much silliness surrounding it for it to ever work as a frightening horror screenplay..., or so I believed.   However, the "Killer Snowman" idea never left my mind.  By the summer of '95, I had worked out all of my problems I had with it to move forward in writing it.

***********************************************************************************

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO NOW: 

 

    The screenplay of THE SNOWMAN was originally written in 1995, when certain technologies did not exist.   The first thing I intend to do, if this project is successful, is to redress it and update it whenever and wherever I find it necessary to make the story better than I believe it already is. 

      The next thing I need to do from the outset is to find a great artist that can bring my vision for the story to life.  I already have a few local artists in mind for the job, but of course, it's all about getting paid.    The more YOU believe in this project, the more momentum I'll have to help push this project forward

 

     Below are 6 pages from the actual screenplay that takes place midway into the story, shortly after the killer snowman reveals itself to the characters and the reader.

   I present it to you to give a taste of the terror...

Risks and challenges

The only risk I can foresee is the speed to which the artist or artists I hire can produce the pictures and scenes I envision.

As soon as the project gets up and running, I will set up a Facebook page which will be updated at least once a week, to show everyone the progress of the project.

And of course, I will promptly answer any and all questions submitted by all backers as best as I can as the project progresses.
