Hey, Everyone! 

I don’t usually do this, but I need your help. For the past few years I’ve been writing through an ongoing superhero story I’ve been making and finally, after almost half a decade of sketches and random notes, I have a script. The script is 54 pages long and is the pilot for an animated superhero show which I plan to run for three seasons. Here’s the main issue. I don’t know how to animate, and most of my friends don’t want to act in this. I need animators and voice actors who I can send the script to and actually get this thing started with. I don’t have any money at the moment, but once I have enough people and things to show to the general public, I will start an indiegogo page to get more funding for the long term. Here’s some of the animation processes I need people to fill.

-Background Art

-Character Design (Pose References)



-Final Polishing

And here’s some of the roles that I need to fill for long and short term character voice acting. 

-17 year-old Male (Must augment voice to sound vampiric on a regular basis)

-17 year-old Japanese American Female (Must augment voice to be slightly deeper on a regular basis)

-18 year-old Transgender Male [FTM] (This characters starts off as closeted in the first episode and starts openly presenting as male in the second episode. ONLY AUDITION IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE DOING A FEMALE VOICE FOR ONE EPISODE AND SLOWLY TRANSITIONING TO A MORE MALE SOUNDING VOICE OVER THE COURSE OF THE SERIES)

-30′s-40′s White Female

-30′s-40′s Black Male

-30′s White Male

-Early 20′s Native American Male

-16 Year-Old Black Male (This character doesn’t get a lot of screen-time in the beginning, but they do make a short appearance in the first episode, forming into a more complex character over the course of the series)

-Various Thugs and Goons

-Various Police Officers

If you or anyone you know is interested in acting or animating for this, please send me a message with all details.



Screenwriter Rachel Koller was thrilled to learn her script, The Big D — a raunchy female-centric buddy comedy about a young woman’s divorce  — was selected as one of 375 in an Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ screenplay competition.

She was less excited when she got this comment on it:

She took to the competition’s Facebook and wrote: "While I happily accept notes both good and bad on my work, this reader’s notes … seemed wildly inappropriate, offensive and sexist to say the least.

They then came back with:

Defending the comment as a joke does not an apology make. Finally, the Academy had to step in and issue the apology she should have received in the first place.

Athena Film Festival is Seeking Screenplays w/ Strong Women Characters - No Entry Fee

The prestigious Athena Film Festival is inviting aspiring screenwriters to submit their screenplays to the 2016 Athena List–a yearly roster of between 3-5 screenplays with leading female characters or strong female heroes that have yet to be produced into films.

In 2013, only 30 % of all characters in the top 100 earning films featured women, and only 15 % were the central character of the story. The Athena List is a manifestation of the purpose of the Athena Film Festival (now in its 6th year): to recognize, promote, and honor women’s leadership roles in real life and the fictional world through films.

(First of all, if anyone official asks me to take this down I will take it down. Fingers crossed that won’t happen, however, since this is just a rubbish-quality snap.)

I posted several months ago about having obtained select pages from the Jupiter Ascending script, and I decided that some of you were likely to be interested in seeing a glimpse of it.

I don’t really need to provide context for this scene since it’s translated very faithfully to the screen, but I felt it worth sharing so we can appreciate how beautifully the Wachowskis write. Scripts are often written using rather prosaic and blunt language, but I can only describe the Wachowskis’ scripts as novelistic - you can read the script to Jupiter Ascending and quickly conjure up the scenes in your imagination because the prose is so vivid and beautiful.

I’ve repeatedly seen people decry the Wachowskis as terrible scriptwriters, which is a gross falsehood - they write beautifully, and I’d love to see the Jupiter Ascending script released in full so we can all enjoy it and see what was cut.
