Hamilton Declared "Official Screenplay Finalist"

Los Angeles - My screenplay, Hamilton, was just declared and "Official Finalist" in the 2011 Hollywood Screenplay Contest in the Biography and Historical category.  See listing here.

The Story:

Hamilton is the revealing action-adventure story of the brash 20-year-old soldier-patriot, Alexander Hamilton who will stop at nothing, including threatening to overthrow Congress, to secure his place in history during the American Revolution. 

Early Coverage:

"It’s pretty clear this isn’t a first draft. The descriptions are concise and clear.  The dialogue manages to evoke a time long since past without sounding stilted and archaic and the writing manages to balance the action scenes with the character moments.  It’s easy to see that there’s a lot of talent behind this script."

I am quite proud of this recognition by the Hollywood Screenplay Contest as I researched the story over a period of four years and the screenplay took about another year to craft. I believe there are great stories within our nation's founding that if, told well, will connect with a modern audience. And that is what I believe this honor represents.
