Drive, action, epic stories, women in central roles are the motor for Blankenship’s filmscripts.

Telling the story is the key!

Beverly Blankenship’s film scripts tend to be bizarre. Producers are puzzled, audiences love them.

Despite Blankenship’s success as a film author she does not write film scripts often. Writing is a lonely job for someone who thrives in the creative bustle of theatre.
