Current screenplay projects:
THE SOUND MASTER: psycho-thriller set against a surrealistic technotronic landscape. Techno, Trance, Hip-Hop, House: Music of the urban subculture: permanent fixture of the cityscape; DJs and rappers the superstars of the New Millennium. Thousands of kids attend spontaneous parties, publicized by word of mouth. Just harmless fun. Until the killings start. The attacks seem random. The police helpless. Thousands of kids, all potential witnesses, saw nothing. Or thought it was another special effect. Only ALEX, brilliant sound engineer has a possible clue. He just happened to get a murder on ”chip“. In digital quality sound. And because sound is his obsession, he starts ”enhancing“ the unique ”sample“, developing it to its full gory potential. So while the cops fruitlessly use traditional methods in a desperate hunt for the killer, Alex is already mixing the one and only clue into the hookline of his macabre new dance-floor single... and developing his own ideas about finding the murderer.
