What is CIGAR BOX CINEMA?  It is a way of telling a story using a visual we can depend on as being a representation of what we are used to seeing, only smaller and stationary. The diorama is intended to be one scene from a movie and comes with a short screenplay outlining the central idea of the story while maintaining the integrity of that individual scene.  It will be up to you to determine where the scene appears in the final story. 

    My goal is to tell stories and, hopefully, sell someone an idea they can develop into their own story.

   The screenplays are registered with the Writers Guild of America West in Los Angeles. The completed screenplay must be resubmitted for registration with the WGAW.  At a future date the diorama and the screenplay will be sold at auction on ebay.  The highest bid will receive the diorama, screenplay, the rights to the screenplay and ownership of the story idea to develop into a complete work. 


   Thank you for your time and I hope you enjoy whatever is this experience.
