Shooting under the directorship of Ranjeet S. Marwa, production is planned to begin sometime in April with a crew already assembled.

“Thirty years of highs and lows with more highs and more lows...then bam. Finished this script in August, was a winner of the screenplay competition, then a Script Revolution member happened by the script and noticed its theme fit the needs of a close director friend”...

Congratulations to Rockstar member James Brosnahan who describes Script Revolution as a "game changer" for him. James has sold his short script "Look Alive" to Ashley Fordinal who's aim is to produce in time for the BEA Film Festival that is coming up this December and sold his other short script "Kansas Kid" to Dunjey Productions which is planned for production next year.

After being featured on Shootin' The Shorts, Rockstar Member John Hunter's short script "Companion Shop" was picked up by German director Ivy Jelisavac. I'm delighted to say the short film is now complete and available to view.

Big congratulations to Rockstar Member Jason K. Allen once again who's optioned his short comic fantasy "A Goldfish Contemplates Life" to New York City actor/producer Robert Sebastian Webb.

Rockstar member Bill Albert recently received a call from a producer regarding his feature script "Welcome to Nowhere" after only recently joining Script Revolution. Following some changes to the script, it is now being presented to various studios as part of a production company's projects pitch. All the best to Bill. Let's hope this script gets picked up and goes into production. Bill talks a little more about his experience and what he's learned in his Script Revolution blog post you can read here.

Congratulations to Rockstar member Lance Wallick who's optioned his feature script "King of the Sea" to Americana Group after it was found on Script Revolution. Based in California with an attitude of "walking to the beat of your own drummer", Lance certainly is a man of many talents and a writer well worth checking out.

Back at November last year, I was delighted to report that Rockstar Member Jeremy Storey's 22 page short script "An Angel Whispers" had been optioned and produced by Benco Productions in North Carolina after it was discovered on Script Revolution. I'm delighted to say that the project is now complete, out of post, and ready to watch. It really is a brilliant film with great writing and remarkable production value. You can watch the video here.

Big congratulations to Rockstar member Shawn Davis who's sold his feature script "Reprisal" to Tyne Productions after it was found on Script Revolution. The movie was filmed in South Africa in early this year and is currently in post-production with a release slated for late 2020.

Ville is back once again with another two Script Revolution success stories. Firstly, his short script "One Violence, Please" was recently filmed in the US and his script "Coma, a Love Story" is now in pre-production in India with the intention to shoot in summer and be acted out in Hindi. While Ville resides in Finland, Script Revolution is helping him share his art worldwide.

Trea Price, a senior at Radford University and head of the Production 1200 Films team, has produced a short based off a script of CJ Walley's called Cottonmouth, a story about student who’s unwittingly gotten into debt with a drug dealer and goes to their friend for help. Trea found the script via Script Revolution. You can watch the completed short here.

Following his script "Daggers" being featured on Shootin' The Shorts, Jason K. Allen has optioned it to iWIL Productions based in Australia. This is their second collaboration after the production company previously found and produced "The Seashell" which was also found on Script Revolution, the trailer for which can be found here.

Rockstar member Leslie Davis has been able to secure an agent based in LA after his script "Serpentine" was featured on Script Revolution. Having found coverage and competition wins got him nowhere over the past decade, Leslie has a powerful message to pass on to all members - "So here's what I've leaned after ten years of screenwriting and two weeks in the Script Revolution community. Write the best story you can write, trust your own judgement, never give up, but, most importantly, upload your screenplay to Script Revolution. As they say, 'it only takes one yes.'"

A big well done to Rockstar member Anthony Cooper who has recently sold his female centric feature script "Birdz of a Feather". Be sure to check out what else Anthony has available in his portfolio on his Script Revolution page and remember hit that follow button. 

Congratulations to long time member and keen Script Revolution advocate Craig Griffiths who has sold his award winning action sci-fi feature script "The Valley" to a UK producer-director who plans to start shooting later this year. With Craig being based in Australia, it's great to see a Script Revolution deal that's connected two filmmakers on either side of the world.

A big well done to Rockstar member J. Phillip Wilkins who has recently seen his script "Tipsy" made by Dollars And Donuts Productions after it was featured on Shootin' The Shorts. You can watch this great little movie here.

It's going to be hard to fit all of Paul Knauer's Script Revolution success stories into one post but here goes. Firstly there are his short scripts "Playing Cars" and "Unreliable Witness" which were picked up last year. Then there's his  6-page action/drama "Sanctuary" which he's recently optioned to Karen Ross of Owl Echo Entertainment and to directed in LA by Garrett Adams. And finaly there's "For Now", my 8-page romantic comedy short, which is now in post after being shot in Dubai by Sikendar Hemani. Huge congratulations to him.

A long time member of the site, Kimberly Britt has sold her short horror-thriller script "Undertakings" to industry stalwart and founder of Heaven's Fire Films Matthew Roe after it was found on Script Revolution. Congratulations to Kimberly and Matthew.
