Doomed To Repeat

Doomed To Repeat

Podcast (Actual Play)
Doomed To Repeat is an actual-play podcast that builds an improvisational horror story using the Ennie award-winning tabletop roleplaying game, Delta Green.

The story centers around six "agents" working for the secret US government conspiracy known as Delta Green. For nearly a century this conspiracy has sacrificed countless agents to fight against very real unnatural horrors. These Eldritch truths must be kept hidden from the world at all costs.

However, when your organization's motto is "Scientia Mors Est" (knowledge is death) the bookkeeping can get messy and the unnatural is never truly understood.

That is, until our agents are assigned by their case officer to a new project known as operational PERENNIAL. The objective is simple; piece together the sordid history of their organization in order to better understand the vectors they face and how to stop them. After all, if we can't learn from our past we are doomed to repeat it.

The submission provided is episode 1 of arc 1 in which the agents investigate a recently deceased retired agent who may hold clues that can help their operation. It is a good example of the strong sound design, the compelling interplay between players, and ratcheting tension consistent throughout the entire show.

Doomed To Repeat has recently completed a second arc and due to popular demand, a third arc is in the works.

Script (Web Series)
LOGLINE: While waiting for her Google dream job, an ex-Israeli commando teaches a NYC night school philosophy class & uses her eclectic international students as unwitting pawns in her private eye gigs

THEME: Applying classical philosophical to today’s seemingly soulless world takes real effort. But when your professor is an unprincipled, self-absorbed, libertine dreamer, the moral boundaries are stretched to their limits. On the other hand, anything is better than sitting in the classroom being lectured on Confucius’ views on concubines.

Our Dreamer is DEVORAH ZISSA (DeZi) is ex-Israeli Army commando. Her name Hebrew means Sweet Bee & she’s the charismatic Queen bee all the other worker bees swarm around. Her philosophical views are a mix of Machiavelli & Sun Tzu. Dezi was indeed in Israeli Military intelligence but maybe not so successfully.

The Tall Bike Joust

The Tall Bike Joust

Web Series (Pilot)
Slightly misguided (but up for anything) people from various walks of life meet in a craft brewery's parking lot to joust on bicycles of double the normal height, raise money for a nonprofit bicycle shop that focuses on urban transportation equity, and to joyously celebrate life in all of its absurdity.

Uniquely blending documentary and scripted elements, this very real tournament is presented by hosts from a SportsCenter-esque studio as though it is a live event of international significance—like the Super Bowl or World Cup—and the jousters hyped as the superheroes they so clearly are.

THE TALL BIKE JOUST originally served as a pilot for SMART PEOPLE BEING STUPID—an unscripted TV/ web series traveling the nation to find intelligent and successful people who engage in random, silly, and seemingly pointless events the general public does not even know exists. But, given the success of this pilot and of the underground sport of tall bicycle jousting, this project also now serves as a pilot for THE TALL BIKE JOUST WORLD CUP—an arced series following five jousters from the pilot as they earn points in tall bicycle jousting tournaments across the southeast and strive to be crowned the year-end champion.

They wonder what their world will have become by the time their message is listened to. What will be left of a planet that has destroyed itself? What will be left of the people who lived there? What will become of their stories? What will be here?At its core, this show is about living and creating when things feel pointless. It's a story that came out of the pandemic, and the landscape in which this story was written and produced greatly influenced how it turned out. What Will Be Here? is set on earth 200 years in the future, where large-scale crises are fully normalized. But despite the bleak backdrop, this story is one of hope - of overcoming challenges, of making things that might be temporary, but also things that might be launched into space and continue on forever.

ANGER

ANGER

Podcast (Narrative)
ANGER is a 12 part audio / visual experience which follows the adventures of Queen Elizabeth II into a post-apocalyptic Covid-riddled world. I wrote and produced this during the global lockdown of 2020, in collaboration with creatives in the UK and Germany, also stuck at home on their laptops.

This medieval / sci-fi nightmare is a tongue-in-cheek reflection of the post-truth age we are living through. Covid-19, Brexit, the British class system, monarchy, mental health, free will and suicide are dramatised in this work.

As the “Leavers“ rush to escape their human bodies by transforming into mech-organic creatures, the “Remainers“ scramble to find some way to survive without them. Armies of Key Workers toil on through the toxic haze and disease, as the elites reveal their new immune bodies to the applause of the global media. Elizabeth, lost and unrecognisable in this new world, would catalyse a transformation quite unlike the others - a being which would change everything.
