Film Production: All Circuits Busy

I’ve decided to take matters (once again) into my own hands instead of waiting around for Hollywood to take interest in my work.  As of now, I have “All Circuits Busy” being professionally rewritten by Julie Paupe, owner of Scriptwriterhelp.com.  Julie has helped me before, and she’s an expert.

My plan is to Read more

Executive Film Producer Wanted

Poster_queryABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!!!

What I wish to do is take one of my full length films and condense it down into a short film so I can produce the film to enter into film competitions.

When I first tried to raise the funds, the amount was way too high; however, my second crowdfunding campaign still did not receive donations.

What I need is roughly $7,500 to get this film produced.  What I can offer in return is major advertisement, and WHEN I sell the full length version of the film titled, “Sometimes Love” I will in return give you 5% of what it sells for.  So, even if it sells for 1 million, you Read more

What other Projects I’m Working on

Hidden Secrets Movie

ACBAs I wait for the Sponsors and Donations to pour in, I continue to work on other projects.  I have a screenplay titled, “All Circuits Busy” that I’ve entered into the Scriptapalooza screenplay competition.  I got off to a late start, and it needed a rewrite, but the worst thing that can happen is me losing $65, so I entered.

I’m also in the process of rewriting another screenplay that I haven’t touched since April, 2014 and decided to work on it again because I met a local woman in Panama City who I think would make an excellent main character.  I won’t name her yet because I just approached her with it last night and sent her the script.   The logline as follows:

Big Things are Truly Happening

hidden secrets3First, I want to thank Jacob “JB” Barrage of JB Barrage Entertainment, LLC for contacting me on Stage32.  I threw my hands up and had decided to stick to writing with hopes of someday being discovered because I had totally given up trying to produce one of my short films.

Anywho, I’m now in the process of Read more

Plans to Produce My Screenplay Short

Film_ProductionWOW, is all I can say. No, it isn’t. I posted on Stage32.com’s forum a few days ago, searching for someone to analyze my five (5)-page screenplay short, “Love Appeal”. An experienced Horror Director/Writer (Shane W.) offered to analyze it free of charge.

This is what he had to say, “Hi Dawn, Read through the screenplay. It’s a pretty unique story, not something done to my knowledge, and the quasi-silent film feel is an interesting touch. It has a nice feel to it, and it’s a good story.”

He gave me a couple of recommendations on how Read more

Confessions of a Screenwriter

brain-mazeI have this amazing story inside my head.  The title alone says a lot, but for some strange reason, when I sit down to type or write, I produce nothing, because it’s all scrambled. The words are in a maze with a blocked exit and an extremely high wall.

I don’t have writers block, I’m just a blocked writer. Maya Angelou said it best, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” She may have been speaking on another level, but not much of a difference.

I’ve written screenplays before, (two at the same time) and the words flowed like Niagara Falls in the summer.  Three Screenplays, two outlines (again, at the same time), three shorts, numerous log-lines of stories I have yet to start.

I told myself, move on to the next screenplay, but the truth is, the story I’m trying to convey is not the issue, it’s M.E. My mind is restless when I’m awake, when I’m Read more

Earlier this month, the network moved the film’s debut back by about 10 days, to tomorrow, Saturday, August 2, starting at 8pm/7c.

So for the many of you who never got to see the film, and have been emailing me over the last year, asking if I know when it will premiere on BET,you’ll finally now have your opportunity to Read more

Common & Tika Say Yay to the Screenplay

Common & Tika Sumpter "Sometimes Love"
Common & Tika Sumpter “Sometimes Love”

COMMON & TIKA ALL I ASK OF YOU IS TO READ THE FIRST 10-15 PAGES

First, I would like to thank Vince, owner of dURDy Work Multi-Media Graphics for designing my movie poster, he did one hell of a job, and I am so glad I stumbled upon him.  He also designed my website header, so be sure to check him out; magnificent work and reasonable prices.

Second, I want to thank my cousin Sherry, owner of Sherry Designs for creating the trailer for me as well.  She did an excellent job with putting it all together… so THANKS FOR BOTH OF YOU!

If you’re visiting this page, then I hope you are as excited as I am, and you’ve contributed with PERSUADING these two celebrities.  I’ve been working on this script since 2010, and I’ve always envisioned the two of them steaming up the silver screen; two beautiful people.

I took this route because I did not Read more

Screenplay is in Surgery

aff_typewriter1Before I get started, check out my new website header created by VINCE over at dURDy WorK Multi-Media Graphics.  I have some other work I may hire him for again closer to the end of the year, and I refuse to say what it is, but it’s going to be big. 

So much has happened since my script was in the E.R.  I made the necessary changes, but I knew it still wasn’t ready.  I appreciate Ms. Pembroke for pointing out a few problems, but I decided to post an ad on Freelanced.com with hopes of finding someone who would take a little more time with me because I need it, and within twenty-four hours I received over thirty proposals.  Some were novelist, but had never worked in screenwriting, and some were just way out of my price range.

I had it narrowed down to about four people because of price and credentials, but Read more
