Title: Got an Idea for a Movie? It's a Swift Path to Success

Author: John Hart


You've seen one or two bad movies in your time, right? And
you've told your date, "I could do better than that." Your
instincts are probably right.

You already know Hollywood seems locked into making the same
tired, old plots, over and over. But you have an idea for a
better movie rolling around inside your brain. Well, here's
opportunity knocking.

A former Hollywood executive is willing to make your screenplay
into a movie if you're the winner of a winner-take-all
competition. John Hart, former vice-president for BrightStar
Productions, has founded an independent studio in Oregon, a
state that is now known as "Hollywood North," and he's ready to
make the winning idea into a movie.

The competition is called MakeMyScreenplay and it's the only one
of its kind. The winner gets his or her script made into a
feature-length movie, and here's the best part: the winner also
gets fifty-percent (50%) of all revenue generated from
theatrical, televison, and DVD sales.

What kind of money are we talking about here?

Well, "Blair Witch Project," a low-budget independent movie,
made outside of Hollywood, grossed $140,530,114 dollars in the
U.S., according to the Internet Movie Database. Another recent
independent hit also made outside of Hollywood, "Napoleon
Dynamite," grossed $44,540,956 in the U.S.

Can you write something like that? If you can, MakeMyScreenplay
will make the movie, and you'll get half the money.

Writing a screenplay isn't that difficult. The format is a
breeze to follow. What you really need is a good idea and some
screenwriting software, and the will to finish it. Make it a
group project. Get your whole family involved.

The rules are pretty simple and you can see them all at You aren't eligible if you've already
won before, or you have a produced theatrical or television

The winning script will be shot in Oregon with Sony's new
high-definition camera, the HVR-Z1U, and we'll edit it, add
music and sound effects, and send you a DVD when it's done. Then
we'll show it off to the world. Neither of make any money unless
we get it sold somewhere, right?

So enough whinning about the bad movies you've seen. Do
something about it. Write your own and we'll make it. Check out
the details at, and good luck with your
script! We're looking forward to reading it.
