Documentary Scriptwriting

At GeoGenius, I was part of an award-winning production team. We produced documentary-style videos that played in tour buses across the United States and Canada. As the bus reached a pre-determined GPS point, a video would play telling the passengers all about the next site on the tour.

These are a few samples of the scripts I wrote and the videos that we ultimately produced from them.

Scripts are PDF; videos open in a new window.

» National Parks Tour: A Spaceport of Our Own Script | Video

» National Parks Tour: Bryce, Briefly Script | Video

» Pittsburgh, PA: Forged in Steel Script | Video

» Pittsburgh, PA: When Rich Guys Fight Script | Video

» Charlotte, NC: From Moonshine to NASCAR Script | Video

» Charlotte, NC: City of Churches Script | Video

» Westport, CT: Saving National Hall Script | Video

In the two and a half years I worked for GeoGenius, I personally researched and wrote more than 160 scripts ranging in length from 30 seconds to 20 minutes.

Manuals and Instructions

Most manuals contain proprietary information. Here are two that don’t. These were produced using InDesign and are presented as PDFs.

» National Parks Driver Guide PDF

» Vancouver City Driver Guide PDF

Book Layout

Books should be designed for harmony and legibility; the typography should serve the text. I prefer a clean, elegant design – though the designer in the end must bow to the needs of the book. My chief influences are Jan Tschichold, William Morris, and John Baskerville.

These PDFs are extracts from longer works.
