Dog Run by Phil Clarke Jr. filmed… - posted by Don

… a couple of years ago.

Not entirely sure how I missed this one. Phil Clarke’s short script, originally entitled Linus was filmed by Richard Kinsella of ScarTissueFilms.

Not all dogs go to heaven… Some go to Sawyer! (Short, Gothic Horror)

Dog Run from Rick Kinsella

There are a couple of versions of the script available to read. There is Linus (rtf format) and a revised draft entitled Dog Run. Linus was written for one of the first SimplyScripts One Week Challenges back in 2005.

I firmly believe that the fact that the studios post scripts for screenplay award consideration is a major factor in winning. Paramount has stopped posting screenplays for award consideration which I believe harms their ability to garner the screenwriting award. I’ve had a couple of academy members email me thanking me for the links to the nominated scripts for the convenience of having the script links in one place (small focus group, yes).
