James Blood and Brett Scieszka became fast friends when they met at NYU film school, where they focused primarily on writing for the screen, directing films, and drinking beer.
After graduating the two friends became collaborators in script writing and the production of short videos for their comedy website www.drunktalkshow.com, a web series with over 60 shorts that continues to this day. They have also written several feature length spec scripts for film and television among other short pieces in various stages of development.
James and Brett are currently shopping two feature-length scripts: Burned Out is a road-trip comedy following an office worker and his godson to the annual Burning Man festival, and The First Four Years is a boy’s coming-of-age college experience as told through his relationships with women and his professor/mentor. The short film English is an expanded scene from the The First Four Years.
