Dear Sir/Madam,

 

In the past few years I have been working in the world of Conferences in Telecoms and IT where I have been writing and managing major European events. I am also an Author, Technical Adviser and Researcher for television and cinema. I have been writing novels, essays, plays, poetry, television scripts, documentaries and films.

 

Five of my books are published in Paris and some of my work is being broadcast on the NBC network in America, was on ITV 1 in the UK and is now on Fox Kids (Black Hole High). Recently I have been a Development Producer and Researcher at Darlow Smithson Productions, working on an important documentary about E=mc2 and Einstein with Kevin MacDonald. I have also written three film scripts and several treatments for Maverick Films and Anonymous Content in Los Angeles as a freelance writer.

 

If you wish to get a better idea of who I am and what I am capable of, please visit my website:

http://www.crownedanarchist.com

 

I have a Masters degree in French Literature from the University of London. I have studied for one year at la Sorbonne in Paris and I have finished a BA Language and Philosophy at the University of Ottawa in Canada. I also have a college diploma in Sciences from the College of Jonquière in Québec.

 

I have been deeply involved with the development and marketing of Telecoms & IT, Multimedia and Broadcasting conferences. I have managed teams within different departments and achieved great results. I was also a consultant with a background in market research, and more recently I was managing teams developing applications for corporate networks. I have personally created, built, tested and maintained many professional and successful websites.

 

For the last 8 years I have gained experience in research, marketing, sales, administration, sponsorship, computers, databases, web design and web promotion whilst dealing with top level corporate executives worldwide.

 

I am a keen worker, extremely adaptable and quick to learn. I can work fluently in French and English. I am very familiar with MS Office, marketing/database software and most of Adobe and Macromedia applications.

 

The rest of my background is outlined in the enclosed CV. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

 

Regards,

 

 

 

Roland Michel Tremblay

Script Writer, Development Producer (Contact details for reference available on request.)  http://www.maverick.com

 

As a freelance writer for Maverick Films and Anonymous Content, I have written three film scripts and several treatments, some of them with well known actors attached to the projects. These films should go into production later this year. I also worked as a Development Producer and have contributed to ideas for films and television series, especially for the new G4tech TV Network. They are considering producing projects I have worked on and two ideas I have had for television series. Both of these can be found on my website: The Virtual Universe and First Planet. Although both these examples are science fiction, most of the work I have done for Maverick Films and Anonymous Content had a variety of subject matters.

 

 

 

Darlow Smithson Productions Ltd & PBS (US) (June 2003 to July 2003)

Development Producer/Researcher (Contact details for reference available on request.)

On this project I worked closely with Kevin MacDonald (Academy Award and Emmy Award Winner) and another researcher. I was responsible for researching a detailed treatment for a documentary about E=mc2. The main topics were energy, mass, the speed of light, relativity, nuclear weapons and the applications of E=mc2 in the Universe and in our day to day life. Of course extensive research has been made into all the main players in these areas, more specifically Albert Einstein.

We filmed all 13 episodes on location in Hamilton, Ontario. I was the technical adviser and science consultant and I worked on most of the scripts. The project was a joint venture between NBC, Fireworks, Discovery Network and Brewster (BHH) Productions.

The Crowned Anarchist Literature & The Marginal (October 1997 until now)

Webmaster, Web Designer, Web Promoter, Author

 

Since I was 10 years old I have been writing books, science reports and articles. Over the years I have written 18 books that I feel could be published. In order to present this huge amount of work - accomplished in parallel to work and studies - I have built from scratch four very popular websites:

 

The Crowned Anarchist Literature: www.crownedanarchist.com

L'Anarchiste Couronné Littérature: www.anarchistecouronne.com

The Marginal: www.themarginal.com   Le Marginal: www.lemarginal.com

 

Note: despite the title I am not an Anarchist nor I have any link with any anarchist organisation. This is about writing a different literature. The Crowned Anarchist is a book about a Roman king from the late French writer Antonin Artaud. As well, you will notice that the French websites are much more developed than the English ones.
