We’re just one week away from our Online Introduction to Professional Screenwriting Course, which starts on Thursday January 28th with a class on Concept and Development!
Taking third place in our Fall Contest was a female-led crime drama in which a professional thief must contend with both the mob and the challenges of her complex family, and which particularly impressed us with its fantastic characters: MAKE THE WEATHER by Tom O’Connell!
Based on the real story of a movie icon and his most trusted friend, the winner of our Fall Contest takes us all the way back to the silent era for a biopic about Charlie Chaplin’s Japanese-American chauffeur: RIDING WITH CHARLIE by Shintaro Ogai!
It’s tougher than ever to predict the future of our industry in these uncertain times, and that’s why it’s also more important than ever to keep an eye on what scripts are selling. If you want to know if your script will succeed, you need to look at what producers are interested in right now – so here’s our pick of script sales from October 2020.
We’re moving towards one of the most exciting times of the year here at WriteMovies, when we get to choose the contest winners we’ll be developing and pitching to industry. After another tough round of judging, we’ve selected the semi-finalists for our Fall 2020 Screenwriting Contest!
You frightened us with your submissions to our Horror Award, but now it’s time to see if you can tug at our heartstrings and make us laugh. Continuing our celebration of great writing across all genres, the WriteMovies Romance and Comedy Award 2021 is now OPEN!
The submissions to our Horror Award threw all sorts of terrifying ideas at us, and we were seriously impressed (not to mention scared) by what we saw – but there can only be one winner: THE DEVIL’S TIDE by John McCoy!
