 Off-Script is a romantic comedy written by Sam. It was a Quarter Finalist in the 2019 Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting Competition. Reader highlights include: 

"This delightful, innovative 'non-romantic comedy,' is clever, funny, and, in fact, the quintessential romantic comedy-hidden in a thinking person's film. The script, in three-act structure, indicates a mastering of the art of screenwriting, as well as a gift for comedy, with a keen sense of rhythm, comedic timing, and pacing."

"... a really impressive story that worked on many levels."

"There is a voice here. The intention of the piece was clear and the command of the material was strong and showed a lot of talent."

"Probably the most brilliant thing about this script was its ability to tell a good story while at the same time integrating a metaphor for life that was really meaningful."

Off-Script was an Official Selection of the 2020 Fort Worth Indie Film Showcase, where it was nominated for Best Overall Feature Screenplay and won Best Comedy Feature Screenplay. It is also an Official Selection of the 9th annual Austin Revolution Film Festival, where it is also a nominee for Best Comedy Feature Screenplay.
