In Flanders Field - post author Don

 

Poppy FlowerIn Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

 

– John McCrae

Thank You - post author Don

I’m off enjoying the holidays, but I wanted to say a brief thank you to everyone who has supported the site over the year. Particular thanks to Pia, Bert and Sean without whom the discussion board would not exist. Thank you to everyone who has run a challenge and commented on a script. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the screenwriting community. There are too many people to name so I will not try.

It has been a banner year for members getting work optioned and produced. By my best rough count, there have been over a hundred scripts optioned as a result of being on the site. This says more about us as a community helping each other out than it does about the site itself. The community is not the site, but the people who contribute to it.

Also, since the advertising on the site has been more than enough to cover hosting and bandwidth, we’ve been able to donate roughly $800 over the course of the year to film projects and writing labs.

Best wishes of the season to all, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Help Glitch get made - post author Don

Help Glitch Get Made

Got a little coin? For £5 British Pounds or $6.50 American Money (or 82 degree Fahrenheit – I’m crap at English conversion) you can help get this made. Check out the trailer. Read a little more below and then go to Indiegogo and donate a few bucks.

Anthony Cawood’s award winning short script, Glitch (pdf format), is being made by a filmmaker based in Edinburgh and will hopefully shoot in September.

The Director is currently crowd-funding to pay for the special effects required in the film, so if anyone is interested throwing a little coin to the campaign, it can be found on Indiegogo.

For those interested in the script… it’s a dystopian dark dramedy and sees a wife operate on her husband’s inflamed appendix using a temperamental VR headset, it won the best Horror/Thriller Short Script at the Nashville Film Festival in 2016.
