David Young
Writer: Sitcom Pilot, Short Story & Feature Film

I joined Create50 in 2015. I have reviewed 27 projects.

More degrees than a Phoenix summer, and have turned a paying legal career into a speculative writing career. I'm awesome.

Films that Inspired Me

A Fish Called Wanda, Star Wars (the only one), Braveheart, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, 400 Blows, Silver Linings Playbook, Lawrence of Arabia

My Favorite Quote

"Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o'clock this afternoon... with nail polish. These f**king amateurs..."

About Me

Growing up as a Scot in America, I fell in love with quality comedies on both sides of the Atlantic. I was just as likely to be watching Fawlty Towers and Good Neighbors as I was Taxi and Cheers. However, when I found Blackadder, I devised my cunning plan to become a writer (one that I even more cunningly put off for a couple of decades).

I have two sitcom pilots and a third on the way. One of them, "Kicking & Screaming," has seen success as a Bronze Prize winner for the Page International Screenwriting Awards, a Finalist at the Nashville Film Festival, and a successful applicant for selection for the London Screenwriter's Festival Comedy Writer's Room. Outside of the sitcom realm, I was commissioned to adapt a 1960's Cold War novel into a TV serial, was selected as a finalist for "The Impact," and was selected twice for writer's labs at the London Screenwriter's Festival.

My entry into writing a horror short story for "Twisted's Evil Little Sister" comes from my real life belief that every plane I ride will end in a fireball. Sure, I need them to get where I'm going, but I don't have to like them. I think I get that point across in "Clear Air Turbulence." Enjoy.
