Announcing a NEW Direction for SimplyScripts – – > Simply JAVAScripts! - post author 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 - post author 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.

Programmed Series Needs Money. Give it to them!Folks,

Glenn (a.k.a. IAmGlenn on the Discussion Boards) is the writer of a new series.

It has Aliens.

A secret organization of aliens are using their own technology to program humans in order to over throw governments around the world and obtain global dominance. That is if five escaped prisoners don’t stop them first.

Help out out the series on GoFundMe.

But, he doesn’t have a crappy mug… - post author Don

Congratulations to Matías. He just signed with C.A.A..

Matías has been contributing to the SimplyScripts Discussion Board since 2005. He is the 2014 Grand Prize Winner of The Page International Screenwriting Awards. He has written several produced scripts. You can read some of his work before I get a C&D from C.A.A. to take them down.

Alas, Matías has yet to receive the coveted crappy mug

New York Women In Film LogoThe New York Women in Film and Television Writer’s Lab for Women Over 40 brings 8 women screenwriters over the age of 40 together with established mentors from the film industry for an intimate gathering and intensive workshop at Wiawaka Center for Women on Lake George, NY from September 18-20, 2015. The Lab is presented in collaboration with the Writers Guild of America, East. Read more about the background here.

Please read The Writer’s Lab Application Instructions for details on eligibility. At a high level: Applicants must be women who were born on or prior to June 1, 1975, and must be US Citizens or Permanent Residents. The Lab seeks submissions from all racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and cultural groups. Submissions must be full-length narrative screenplays in English. (No TV scripts, shorts or documentaries.) They are seeking a broad selection of screenplays across all genres of fiction. Scripts by more than one writer will be considered, but all writers must be female, and only one writer can attend The Lab.

There are a lot of women writers who are members of SimplyScripts and I can’t think of one who hasn’t produced quality, professional and engaging work. And, I know that all members would be delighted to lend any assistance in the way of reviews and proof reading to help our their friends on the discussion board.
