The Croquet Peace Theory


All you need is a globe, a drill and the world's greatest flash mob coordinator.

You take the globe and locate the enemy territory.

Take the drill and drill through the globe to locate the exact opposite side of the planet. 

Contact your flash mob coordinator.

Get a giant crowd to meet at the location.


Have everyone jump so that each and every person lands at the exact same time.

Timing is going to be very important, so this is where the flash mob coordinator is needed.

Just like launching your opponents croquet ball off into the bushes, your enemies will fly off into space.



When I originally came up with this theory I was young and naive and tagged entire sections of the planet to be the enemy because I got a little too caught up in rooting for the home team just because that's where I was born.


I now realize that a majority of the world probably just want to just live their lives but have to navigate around these overzealous fans.

Additional items include, but are not limited to, a second flash mob coordinator, a drone, two more people (not part of the jumping crowd), two sets of binoculars and four smart phones with FourSquare.

In order to keep the drone balanced you'll want to strap one person to each of the drone's wings. There may be some room for error, but try your damnedest to keep them equidistant.

You will fly the plane over the enemy territory.

Using the binoculars, the two people on strapped to the wings will search for specific evil doers.

Upon finding said specific evil doer the finder will check in via FourSquare.

Once either of the flash mob coordinator receives the check in location, they will coordinate the group needed to launch the targeted evil doer out into space.


Repeat this process until all the evil doers are gone no matter what team they root for.

(note: If there is anyone out there who would like to put together a power point presentation or animate to help me pitch this to the world, I would love to see it!)

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
