Softcelluoid Films Discovers "Bits and Pieces" Dec 1, 2009
Allen Martinez with Softcelluoid Films discovered "Bits and Pieces" by Larry Sulkis on InkTip. Allen, a long-time DGA member who is repped as a director by Zero Gravity Management, directed the muliti-award-winning short film "Intelligence" starring Milo Ventimiglia (of NBC's "Heroes"), from a script discovered on InkTip. WGA member and InkTip writer Larry Sulkis, whose credits include John Carpenter's "Ghosts of Mars" (with Natasha Henstridge, Ice Cube, Jason Statham, and Pam Grier), has a long history of writing and producing at a studio level and a keen eye for directorial talent. So when Allen Martinez contacted him about his "Bits and Pieces" (a darkly humorous sci-fi piece dealing with health care in the near future), they formed a partnership, shot a short film to promote the project, and are now actively working on packaging the script.
InkTip-facilitated Short "Bar Flies" Rips Through Festivals Dec 1, 2009
"Bar Flies" was listed on InkTip by writer Alan Barkley and acquired in September 2008 by David Broyles of Hazard Pay Productions of NYC. It was produced in Spring 2009 and has been accepted this year for screening at Breckenridge FF - CO, Woods Hole FF - MA, DC Shorts - Washington DC, Seattle International FF - WA, Santa Fe FF - NM, Austin FF - TX, Big Apple FF - NY. A reviewer at the Austin Film Festival posted this about "Bar Flies" following the screening of all the narrative shorts
InkTip Pairs Seasoned Writer with Debuting Director Dec 1, 2009
The script "Consequences" written by Dawn Chapman was optioned through InkTip by John C. Arnold at Park Bench Pictures, LLC. Dawn is a working writer who works with several directors. "Consequences" is the perfect project for John's directorial debut; a short with a compelling message. John has been in Hollywood for 8 months as a student at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy. During his studies, he decided to give directing a try and applied to transfer to The Savannah College of Art and Design to learn the ropes of a camera and directing. He is very excited to film this project.
Hudson Agency Signs InkTip Scribe Garner Haines Dec 1, 2009
Sue Giordano with the Hudson Agency discovered scribe Garner Haines through InkTip and has entered into an agreement to represent him. Sue was specifically looking for a Canadian television animation writer whom she could pitch to work on network series, and his "Robot Chicken" spec had the comedy chops she was looking for. So she asked if he could turn out a couple new specs on short notice to demonstrate he could write for different audiences, and when he managed to do so, she signed him. Sue Giordano is a WGA signatory agent listed in the directories who has signed other writers discovered through InkTip, and who has succeeded in landing these writers options and work, so we're always excited when we get to mention her latest find. Garner Haines has been writing for several years and has won screenwriting contests, though this is his first option.
"Long Shadow Woman" Picked Up by Susan Johnston Dec 1, 2009
Susan Johnston, President of Select Services Films discovered InkTip writer Craig Clyde's script "Long Shadow Woman" on the site. Susan, Maverick Filmmaker honor recipient - Cinequest 2006, is currently the VP of Production at Big Vision Studios and director of the New Media Film Festival. Craig Clyde already has 18 writing credits to his resume, as well as a bevy of directing and acting credits, but this is his first InkTip success. Keep your eyes on this newsletter, because we'll probably be announcing his second InkTip success very soon.

Tom Thompson with Muse River Entertainment has hired InkTip scribe Sabine Buchanan to rewrite the Sci-Fi comedy "Waste of Space." This all began when Tom discovered Sabine on InkTip. He liked her writing style, so she referred him to a radio play titled "The Not So Happening Adventures of the Cosmic Cruiser" by one of her writer friends, Brandon Williford. Tom liked it, tracked the writer down on Triggerstreet, acquired the rights from Brandon, and then hired Williford and Sabine to do re-writes. "Waste of Space" is currently in post production, and has already been accepted to the Sunscreen Film Festival taking place May, 2009.
Anastasios Paikos Produces Short Script "Nobody's Perfect" Jan 15, 2009
We are happy to announce that another short script has been produced! Anastasios Paikos of MediaFrenzy found the talented writer John Porter in InkTip's shorts section and optioned his script "Nobody's Perfect." Only a few weeks after the script was translated to Swedish, production began, and they are now closing in on the final stages of editing. "It's a 20-minute short film about three ladies who like to gossip about anything and everything," said Paikos. "A mysterious neighbor is moving in, which gives them a lot more to talk about, and plenty of made-up reasons to hate him. The story is set in current time, but has a '30s style and fashion about it. It's a simple story, yet given an appreciated comedic touch by writer John Porter."
