Memories made Quarter Finals in BlueCat!

Memories is inching it’s way up. Quarter Finals is the top 5% (225 out of 4500 entries). I have my fingers and toes crossed it makes it at least to the next level. I seem to bottom out at Quarters all the time. 😛

LOGLINE:  (period piece 1865) – When a deadly tornado threatens his aunt’s farm, an imaginative boy entertains his family with a fantastical story while they ride out the storm in the cramped quarters of an underground shelter.

 

“Private Property”, OPTIONED

This is a non-exclusive option so it’s still available if anyone else wants to give it a shot.

One of the most important contributions to my growth as a writer is the website, Simply Scripts. Not only do they host a vast library of produced and unproduced screenplays to read, but their forums and occasional One Week Challenges (OWC’s), are great learning tools. SS member and outstanding writer, Janet Goodman-Clarke, opened a satellite site, “SHOOTIN’ THE SHORTS” (STS) where she and a handful of others review and showcase unproduced shorts in hopes of getting them produced. The review below is from “STS”.

______________________________________________

Thanks to the wonderful review by KP Mackie on STS, “Private Property” has been optioned. A Canadian filmmaker picked it up and plans on shooting it some time in fall of 2014. He has access to horses and a barn, which is the primary location. This script won 2nd place in a Movie Poet challenge. Really looking forward to seeing this filmed. I’ll post updates when I get them.

“The Wishing Tree”, OPTIONED

I’m very excited that “The Wishing Tree” has been picked up for production. I’ll post more details when they’re available. This story is a real tear jerker. Not usually my style of writing but I really love this one. Looking forward to seeing it  filmed.

This is an exclusive option so “The Wishing Tree” is no longer available for production by anyone else.
