Teleplay by Larry Starke
Genre: Episodic, 60-minute family sci-fi
The Universe is collapsing and only she can save it.
TESS THE INVENTOR is a time travel action series for families, featuring a brilliant young female protagonist. A thrilling adventure with sci-fi concepts and skewed historical figures that serves as an inspiration for young girls to pursue their dreams.
Tess is a 12-year-old Victorian genius - an orphan with no memory of who she is or where she came from.
With the help of her mentor, Nikola Tesla, she invents a machine designed to open a portal to visit alternative realities, and find the source of all knowledge in the Universe. But when Tess activates the device prematurely, it malfunctions, transporting her to a dangerous futuristic world.
Tess finds out that her invention didn’t just create a new alternate reality, but instead caused every alternate reality to collide. It’s no longer simply a matter of finding her way back home; Tess is in a race against the imminent collapse of time and space.
Alongside her new robot friend, Electric Bob, Tess will put her ingenuity and Nikola Tesla-inspired gadgets to the test in her search for her parents and the solution for the catastrophe she herself has sparked.
Based on the Novella "Stacking Doll" by Carlton Mellick III
Screenplay Adapted by Larry Starke
Director Michael Medaglia (view director's reel)
Producer Jacqueline Gault
Genre: Feature, Horror-Romance
Based on the novella by acclaimed bizarro fiction author Carlton Mellick III, Stacking Doll is a twisted love story about a young man, Benjamin Hammond, who is in love with a Russian nesting doll. But in this world, nesting dolls are not just antique wooden toys. They are a race of people known as Matryoshkans, a subspecies of humans who are born with a very peculiar abnormality—they have a collection of smaller people living inside of them.
Benjamin never thought he’d fall in love with anyone, let alone a Matryoshkan, but from the moment he met Ynaria he knew she was the only one for him. Although relationships between humans and Matryoshkans are practically unheard of, the two are determined to get married despite objections from their friends and family. After meeting Ynaria’s strict conservative parents, it becomes clear to Benjamin that the only way they will approve of their union is if they undergo The Trial—a Matryoshkan wedding tradition where couples lock themselves in a house for several days in order to introduce each other to all of the people living inside of them.
No human has ever gone through The Trial before, so Benjamin has no idea what’s in store for him. He assumes that he’ll love each of Ynaria’s inner selves just as much as he loves her, but as she peels off her layers he realizes that each one is more neurotic and difficult to deal with than the last. And if they’re ever going to be together, Benjamin must fall in love with each and every one of his fiancé’s inner personalities, no matter how strange or disturbing they turn out to be.
Screenplay by Larry Starke
Genre: Feature, Historical Fiction
France, Spring 1436. Five Years after Those Cowardly English Dogs(!) murdered Joan d'Arc. A woman, CLAUDE, 20's, wearing a tattered uniform and bedraggled armor trudges into a town full of people desperate for good news, and is immediately mistaken for Joan d'Arc returned from the dead - she protests, but it doesn't help that she has a scar on her forehead and no memory of the last five years. The townsfolk heap food, drink, and gifts onto Claude and send her on to the next town - where the ritual is repeated, and repeated again in every village on the road north, until she arrives at Metz where two of Joan's brothers show up to denounce her. Except they don't. They confirm her as their sister and begin a 6-month tour of Northern France, living off the good will of the people Joan inspired.
Finally arriving in Orleans, a Duchess hires "Joan" to lead a mercenary army to Cologne to influence the election of a new Bishop in the Duchess' favor. In Cologne, Claude meets Robert d'Armoises, a French Knight loaned to the city by King Charles of France - the same King that Joan helped put on the throne. When the local church officials decide to burn "Joan" again, Robert helps Claude escape. But when Claude gets back to the Duchess, she's told that King Charles would like to have a word with her in Paris. Claude and Robert meet the King and Claude throws herself on his mercy. Feeling guilty about not being able to save the real Joan, King Charles tasks Claude with retrieving Joan's ring from the Bishop of Lisieux, who stole it from Joan before she was burned. Claude and Robert retrieve the ring - after burning down a castle, escaping from a dungeon, and fighting a gang of Black Knights - and return to Paris.
Claude removes the ring from her hand and gives it to the King, who allows her and Robert to leave in peace. As they're leaving, the King remarks to his Steward that the ring fit Claude's finger perfectly. Claude and Robert marry, have kids, and live happily ever after in their castle. For the remainder of her life, Claude used the titles King Charles bestowed on Joan d'Arc... and the King never said a thing about it.
