Secrets don’t always do what they’re told.

Welcome to my feature film screenplay website. If you’re a producer, filmmaker, actor or director and you have an interest in collaborating, I’d love to hear from you. 

Each screenplay is a different story featuring a diverse range of formidable characters. Most are based in Ireland but dip into other locations and cultures, including Iceland, India, the United Kingdom, Spain and the USA. What they all have in common are lives that are partially or entirely concealed and the unfolding realisation that there are always, always, unforeseen consequences to secrecy.

Hope you enjoy this short Proof of Concept video

BlueCat Script Analysis on Love. Without a Trace.


Hello, and thanks for your interest. I’m Sean Hynes and my day job is in advertising as a Creative Director. The one single thing that I have borrowed from the craft of advertising in writing these screenplays is brevity. There’s nothing in any of these scripts that isn’t there for a reason. The focus is entirely on ideas with fully-rounded endings. I’ve enjoyed writing them and hope you get a chance to enjoy reading them.
