Who the hell is Lawrence McLeod?
After many years wandering through life, often whichever way the wind was blowing, some great successes as well as a few catastrophic failures, Larry McLeod began writing screenplays. The first was MixedNuts which was inspired by some true events, now fiction.
LOGLINE: "The Mixed Nuts ensemble paths cross and their life stories intertwine, from sharing the same space in a homeless shelter, to sharing 9/11 and so much more than anyone would expect".
WHAT NOW? Larry recently studied Screenwriting at Harvard University inspiring his current project, "Before There Were SuperHeroes". Contemplating a move to Los Angeles to continue his screenwriting career.
Born and raised in a tough housing projects in the Boston area to an Irish Catholic family gave Larry somes "insights" many do not have in screenwriting today. Many looked at that area as an Alcoholic neighborhood.
