Fight Belle by Aimee Parrott & Antonio Gangemi filmed as Fighting Belle - posted by Don

fightbelle
When a sassy Southern belle is stood up at the altar by her boxer fiancé, she dons the gloves hoping to salvage her pride by hooking up with her ex one last time – in the ring. 108 pages

Almost ten years ago Aimee Parrott & Antonio Gangemi submitted Fight Belle to the Unproduced Scripts page. About five years ago, Aimee told me that it has been discovered on SimplyScripts* and was in pre-production with Integral Pictures. Last night I reached out to Aimee to get her contact information updated and she informed me that Fighting Belle would premiere on Saturday, March 18th 2017! I think this is the first feature to get picked up from the site.

If you live near Ocean Springs, Mississippi, you can attend the Theatrical Premiere of Fighting Belle. Please check out the Fighting Belle Facebook page and get more information about the movie on the Fighting Belle IMDB page.

Discuss this on the Discussion Board.

*These results using SimplyScripts are not typical.

Introducing – Script Revolution! A service for filmmakers looking for scripts and writers looking to promote their work. - posted by Don

Script Revolution - Script Hosting WebsiteScript Revolution is a script hosting website offering many of the features of the top script directories for free. Screenwriters can add and manage as many script listings as they want for zero cost. Filmmakers can browse the script listings as much as they need without charge. Inspired by the efforts of SimplyScripts, which has helped so many writers and filmmakers find one-another, Script Revolution hopes to bring another avenue of opportunity.

Once signed up, members can upload short, tv, web series, or movie scripts and add a variety of tags which help describe the nature of the material – we’re not just talking genre here, we’re talking budget, story structure, lead role genders, writer style, and much more. Filmmakers can then search the database using those filters to find exactly the type of script they are looking for. That’s the thing you see, the ethos at Script Revolution is all about discovery rather than promotion. Listings are all random so there’s nobody paying their way to the top, soliciting votes, or using any tricks to get ahead of others. Readers don’t need to sign up to anything and don’t have to be part of an exclusive club to access scripts. They can also bookmark all the scripts they like the look of ready to come back and read at a later date. There’s no clique or elitism here – all scripts and all readers are considered equal.

Script detail pages also include the writer’s bio with links to their social media accounts and a contact form that sends messages direct to their email – very useful for those who only want to upload their loglines and handle read requests themselves. In addition to that, all the writer’s other scripts are also listed. If someone loves your writing, they are exposed to all your writing. This ultimately means writers can build up their own profile pages, with a link they can share, introducing themselves, providing their contact details, and listing their scripts ready to read.

Everyone is welcome to join the revolution – www.ScriptRevolution.com

Announcing a NEW Direction for SimplyScripts – – > Simply JAVAScripts! - posted by Don

Over the next few days SimplyScripts will be transitioning to SimplyJAVAScripts!

Not only do both screenplays and the programming language have the word “script” in it, both disciplines also require attention to grammar, spelling and formatting. So, many of the review styles will remain the same, e.g., “This simply will not work,” “Too many spelling errors,” “Your formatting is off…” The transition to SimplyJAVAScripts should be pretty seamless.

I see endless possibilities in this new direction the site is taking. The discussion board will be turned over to reviews and critiques of JavaScript code. JavaScript writers will be able to submit his/her work in a number of JavaScript genres like, “Great for Denial of Service Attacks” or “Great for Defending against Denial of Service Attacks”.

I hope you all embrace this new direction with the same enthusiasm!

Mr. Z makes the Black List - posted by Don

Thanks Bre for the heads up that the Black List is out and our own Matías Caruso (Mr. Z) is on the list!

CARNIVAL by Matias Caruso – 6
A deadly carnival knife-thrower hunts down the members of a powerful crime syndicate who murdered his sister.

Check out the Variety article

Add your congratulations on the Discussion Board.

-Don

Other Info: Carnival began life as short – Three of Swords which was workshopped on SimplyScripts around 2008. Matias was also the 2014 Page Awards Grand Prize Winner with Three of Swords that had been worked into a feature.

*The Black List is an annual survey of the “most liked” motion picture screenplays not yet produced. It has been published every year since 2004 on the second Friday of December by Franklin Leonard, a development executive who formerly worked at Universal Pictures. The website states that these are not necessarily “the best” screenplays, but rather “the most liked”, since it is based on a survey of studio and production company executives.
