Congratulations to Mike, his short script Admit One was filmed as Poetry Man.

A chance meeting between two people from different backgrounds and with little in common, proves that you can’t judge a book by its cover. (pdf)

30 original scripts - post author Don

Over on the Unproduced Scripts page we have 30 original works up for your reading pleasure.

We have Phil’s contraversial short, spoof PC vs. Mac Commercial which has polarized the community.

Michael has his feature take on secret government killers with One Million Monsters.

And, Eric has taken some of the input from the discussion board to clean up and revise his College roadtrip comedy Pledge Trip.

As you may have noticed, the script search is returning an error. Script Search was a victim of its own success and search results were bringing down the server. The Advanced Script Search is still working for the time being, tho I suspect that I’ll have to turn that off, soon due to overuse. Using Google’s site search on the upper left may be your best bet for the time being until I can figure out how to reinstate script search without tanking the server. – Don

Over the Beach: US Army Amphibious Operations in the Korean War - post author Don

over-the-beach_coverOver the Beach: US Army Amphibious Operations in the Korean War

Yes, you are right. This has nothing to do with scripts or screenwriting.

If you are a historian or fan of military history you might find this of interest.

My father, at the behest of the Combat Studies Institute, has written the definitive history of US Army amphibious operations during the Korean War. Chapter two has a great overview of Army amphibious warfare from pre-American Revolutionary war to the modern era. At over 500 pages it may be a little thick for most folks, tho toward page 435 there are some neat pictures of landing ships and craft used during the Korean War.

Over The Beach is a free PDF download available at the Combat Studies Institute. – Don
