Congratulations to Lee O’Connor – The Brightest Star Update! - posted by wonkavite

Back in November, STS was thrilled to announce the optioning of Lee O’Connor’s short, The Brightest Star.

And today, we’re honored to be able to help unveil the finished product. Directed by Grant Pollard, TBS will be hitting the festival circuit – including TMFF and the Apex film festival in Minnesota (and that’s just for starters!)

In the meantime, the full film is available for your viewing pleasure here: https://vimeo.com/129374340. Congratulations again to Lee, for a job well done!

About the writer, Lee O’Connor:

I am a writer from the UK for the screen and theatre. I have written several shorts which are in various stages of production. I am currently in the process of writing a feature film which will be shot in L.A early next year. Alongside that, I am in the process of working on two feature films which the genre and subject will remain a mystery.

I like to tackle subject matters that will pull on the heart strings, educate and open a your eyes. Although these genres are at the opposite ends of the spectrum I predominately write drama and sci-fi. I believe you write with what you know, so be yourself and don’t try to mimic another film or script you have read, create your own voice. I am reachable via email: lee.a.oconnor “AT” gmail

No More Tomorrows by Mark Renshaw – Produced! - posted by Don

This in from Mark:

A script of mine that was originally posted on your site in the Short Section has been produced. I ended up producing it myself. I teamed up with a couple of producer friends in the states (I’m based in the UK) and they found me a director in LA who was interested in directing it. We’ve spent the last 5 months making it but it’s finally out and I’m very proud of it.

The movie is here. We are entering it into a few film festivals to see how it does. I just thought I’d share for now in case anyone would like to see how much a script can change during production. Even then the finished product did differ from the script in some areas because we ran into trouble during the shoot and had to improvise some scenes. Then of course post-production did change the flow of certain key points.

I learned a hell of a lot participating on your forums so it would be nice to give something back.

Cheers,

Mark
