unwritten feature

Las Vegas has had many big-name filmmakers showcase Las Vegas on film, but this time it’s the local film taking the spotlight.

Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Dale NevenUnwritten is a sci-fi thriller about a washed up writer living in a used bookstore. He becomes convinced that a mysterious customer is the villain from a story that he wrote as a kid.

This Las Vegas-made film started as a Kickstarter project. A short teaser created with zero dollars and only 1-2 people as crew won the support of backers on Kickstarter, and less than a month after the project launched, their fundraising goal was reached in January, 2016.

Producers for the film include:

  • Austin Longwell, executive producer
  • Robson Longwell, executive producer / producer
  • Steven B. Mandel, producer
  • Gary McClurg, consulting producer
  • Dale Neven, producer
  • Kenneth W. Parker, producer
  • Jeremy Settles, producer
  • Ben Stobber, associate producer
  • Christopher Styles, co-producer
  • Tracy Ware, associate producer


Tickets for the world premiere of Unwritten are on sale. The majority of cast and crew will be in attendance, and profits will go towards buying books from Las Vegas local bookstore Amber Unicorn Books—the bookstore was the location where the movie was shot. The books will be donated to Spread the Word Nevada, a nonprofit charity that helps at-risk youth.

The premiere will take place at AMC Town Square 18 on Sunday, February 25, 2018 – 6pm red carpet and 7pm showing. Buy tickets here.
