ScriptGirl give the weekly script sales report. - posted by Don

Yes, SimplyScripts is all about the script and the writing of the script and not so much about the selling and the producing of the script. So, why am I putting you onto a script sales report? Well, three reasons. This is factual information about who sold what to the studios, so you have an idea of what the studios are buying delivered in a truly engaging format. ScriptGirl ends her report with “Remember, you can’t sell it, if you don’t write it”. And lastly, Script Girl is one hot tomato.

Below is the April 18th, 2008 report on scripts sales. Check out ScriptGirl.net to get the latest.

As Script Girl sez, “remember, you can’t sell it, if you don’t write it”. – Don

SimplyPod - posted by Don

From the mind that brought you EscapePod (excellent speculative science fiction short fiction in audio format) and PseudoPod (excellent short horror fiction in audio format) comes the debut podcast by Podcastle. Each week they will bring excellent short fantasy fiction in audio format to your mp3 player, tho if you wish you can listen to the story on your computer. The debut story is Peter S. Beagle’s Come Lady Death. Peter S. Beagle may be familiar to some of you as the writer of The Last Unicorn and the screenplay based on the book of the same name.

As many of you know, I’ve been a big fan of short speculative fiction in audio format. Periodically and from time to time, I take a break from screenplay updates to let you know about audio fiction on the ‘net. In fact, Simplyscripts presents short scripts in audio format from time to time. You can even subscribe to the feed via iTunes Oneclick.

However, audio scripts are just not as popular as I thought, so I’ve decided on a major and radical content shift for SimplyScripts. Beginning tomorrow, or the next day. Or early next week, perhaps. SimplyScripts will become SimplyPodTM! While all the other excellent podcasts have the popular genres locked up, like science fiction, fantasty, horror, hardboiled and thriller, I have found my niche. Coming soon, no more scripts and screenplays. Coming soon, short speculative juvenile fiction in audio format. Each week SimplyPodTM will bring you short speculative fiction written by and performed by my son and his friends from Mrs. Cartwright’s second grade class at Oakton Elementary School.

Coming next week or tomorrow will be the inaugural story Mr. Carrot and the sad Carnivore. It has been a pleasure serving your screenwriting needs over the past nine years, but I feel I must move on to new and better opportunities. So, please come back tomorrow or early next week for the grand unveiling of SimplyPodTM! – Don

And the One Week Challenge Selectee is… - posted by Don

Rydale’s Prison by Philip Whitcroft
Read by: iScript.com

As you all know, in February we had the February One Week Challenge wherein participants were asked to write a 12 page dramatic script about a prison cell. We had 33 entries. The fine folks over at iScript.com were kind enough to select one script out of the group to be recorded.

The selected script is Rydale’s Prison by Philip Whitcroft .

An over crowded prison opens up a disused room with a dark history.

You can read along with the pdf version of the script here. You can discuss this script and all the OWC entries here. Click the “Play” button to listen to the script.

Stranger Things – Episode 02A: Sins of the Mother - posted by Don

Stranger Things – Episode 02B: Sins of the Mother – script- from: StrangerThings.tv

After an unsuspecting patient fails a background check, a second-year intern is forced to make a difficult decision…

First watch the episode, then read the script (annotated in pdf format).

Sins of the Mother is the episode of StrangerThings that really cemented my love affair with Earl and the folks behind StrangerThings. This is where the acting, production values and the story really came together to tell a story that surpasses not only Earl’s previous works, but just about anything that has come out of short speculative television in the last few years. Earl and the StrangerThings team hit their stride on Sins of the Mother and carry it through on the next episode, One of those Faces.
