Programmed the series needs help, ‘Cuz Aliens are slowly taking over the human race. - posted by Don

Programmed Series Needs Money. Give it to them!Folks,

Glenn (a.k.a. IAmGlenn on the Discussion Boards) is the writer of a new series.

It has Aliens.

A secret organization of aliens are using their own technology to program humans in order to over throw governments around the world and obtain global dominance. That is if five escaped prisoners don’t stop them first.

Help out out the series on GoFundMe.

Congratulations to Matías. He just signed with C.A.A..

Matías has been contributing to the SimplyScripts Discussion Board since 2005. He is the 2014 Grand Prize Winner of The Page International Screenwriting Awards. He has written several produced scripts. You can read some of his work before I get a C&D from C.A.A. to take them down.

Alas, Matías has yet to receive the coveted crappy mug

A word regarding Shootin’ The Shorts and Janet - posted by Don


Janet Clarke a.k.a. Wokavite a.k.a. the Mastermind behind Shootin’ the Shorts is about to go into surgery. It will take her several days to recover from the procedure.

A lot of you here have benefited from your works inclusion in Shootin’ the Shorts. Countless scripts have been optioned, sold and produced as a result of the work that Janet and her team have done.

Please take the time to “sign this Get Well card”. You don’t have to be registered or signed in to reply in this thread.

I’ll be sending something to Janet later today that will be “From the Gang at SimplyScripts”.

Also, if you wanted to leave a little tip in Janet’s paypal account at janetgoodman (a) I’m sure she would appreciate it.

New York Women In Film and Television Writer’s Lab for Women Over 40 now accepting applications - posted by Don

New York Women In Film LogoThe New York Women in Film and Television Writer’s Lab for Women Over 40 brings 8 women screenwriters over the age of 40 together with established mentors from the film industry for an intimate gathering and intensive workshop at Wiawaka Center for Women on Lake George, NY from September 18-20, 2015. The Lab is presented in collaboration with the Writers Guild of America, East. Read more about the background here.

Please read The Writer’s Lab Application Instructions for details on eligibility. At a high level: Applicants must be women who were born on or prior to June 1, 1975, and must be US Citizens or Permanent Residents. The Lab seeks submissions from all racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and cultural groups. Submissions must be full-length narrative screenplays in English. (No TV scripts, shorts or documentaries.) They are seeking a broad selection of screenplays across all genres of fiction. Scripts by more than one writer will be considered, but all writers must be female, and only one writer can attend The Lab.

There are a lot of women writers who are members of SimplyScripts and I can’t think of one who hasn’t produced quality, professional and engaging work. And, I know that all members would be delighted to lend any assistance in the way of reviews and proof reading to help our their friends on the discussion board.

Bump in the Night – Optioned! - posted by wonkavite

STS is proud to announce that Anthony Cawood has scored yet AGAIN.  His reviewed short, Bump in the Night, is now officially optioned by a filmmaker in South Africa.  We promise to keep all and sundry up to date as the process moves towards production!

In the meantime, please take a look at Anthony’s other available work (if you can catch them before they’re inevitably snatched off the shelf!)
