Call for screenwriters, scratch that, scripts

Hey Screenwriters!

Our script supervisor Amy has taken a hiatus from conducting monthly screenwriting Meetups as she focuses on her boys. In the meantime I'd just like to encourage our writers to write.  Yep - simply as that.   Writers write.  Get ta work!  :)  We need scripts! Short, no budget, few characters, available locations, did I mention no budget, academy award winners.  What's the big deal? Write! Don't tell us your story ideas, that isn't writing.  Write it.  And not in a novel format either.  A script format only - for a gazillion reasons. If you don't know why it must be in an exact format - come to our productions. You can get freebie screenwriting software here- Or get the good stuff either Movie Magic Screenwriter or Final Draft.  $200-ish You want to challenge yourself?  I invite you to join DVXUSER.COM (Free film making forum) and go to this page: Now enter the "free" Blood Games Fest script writing contest.  Runs through Sept 6, so plenty of time. Prizes are tiny or sometimes none at all.  It's educational if nothing else and you get to read a bunch of shorts. You don't have to like the genre - that is not the point.  Other writers will also give you their opinions and score you.  BTW grow thick skin.  Read these it might help- Ask the Expert: Does This Script Make Me Look Fat?
