A Message from the Founder:
Hi, I'm Brendan Ridenour.
I love making things and that's why Thought Haven exists.
I needed a place where I could gather with friends to bring
our dreams to life. My favorite kind of dream is a story. I've
written a bunch already, but I'm just getting started. Dozens
Self Sacrifice is an 11-page short film screenplay by Brendan Ridenour.
As Cynthia mourns the death of her infant son, she prepares to make the ultimate sacrifice in his
name. But what if it wouldn't be? What if her death would change the world, but staying and living
with grace, could save it? Which would an angel do? Martyr themselves, for their own reasons? Or
rise above, even when it's hard, reject both Heaven and Hell, and continue to walk in the world?
