Script Pipeline Writers Workshop “Recommend” Directs Award-Winning Feature

By | Slider, Success Stories

Strength and Honour, a huge festival hit worldwide, was developed through Script Pipeline and received a “Recommend” grade in 2007. Writer/director Mark Mahon received tremendous accolades for the Irish drama starring Michael Madsen (Reservoir DogsThe Hateful Eight) and legendary actor Richard Chamberlain (The Thorn Birds). The film won 22 awards worldwide in 2008, and Mahon and Madsen were interviewed on NBC’s The Today Show as word-of-mouth on the film spread.

From Mark: “I went to Script Pipeline with Strength and Honour back in early 2006. The constructive feedback I received during the development stage allowed me to take it to another level. After receiving a Recommend on my final draft, this allowed me to hand out my project to potential cast with confidence, eventually bringing on Michael Madsen, Vinnie Jones, Patrick Bergin, and Richard Chamberlain. Once complete, the film took over 22 wins around the world, 37 nominations, as well as being hosted by Prince Albert of Monaco in a private Royal screening at the Palace of Monaco. I would highly recommend Script Pipeline to any writer that is serious about their writing–it will not only steer you in the right direction, but will give you the confidence of knowing your work is good when you’re at that stage.”

Feature Film “Between” Developed by Script Pipeline Premieres at Sundance

By | Slider, Success Stories

Writer Rob Nelms was hired to pen the script Between after introductions to director David Ocanas by Script Pipeline CEO Chad Clough. In March 2004, the film was greenlit for production and principal photography started in late May in Tijuana, Mexico. The lower-budget feature starred Poppy Montgomery (UnforgettableWithout a Trace), Danny Pino, and Jose Yenque (Traffic). It made its Sundance premiere in 2004 and later aired exclusively on Lifetime.

According to David Ocanas, “After struggling for months trying to find the right writer for a film project I wished to produce and direct, one call to Chad Clough of Script Pipeline made all the difference. Script Pipeline brought us a writer who has given our story new and exciting elements, and thereby giving us a greater opportunity in making a successful film.”

From the LA Times: “San Francisco-based writer Rob Nelms is another lucky one. His psychological thriller Between made its debut at Sundance this year. ‘I sent a comedy script for [Script Pipeline] to review and provide me with coverage a few years before ‘Between’ even came about. They worked with me to improve the script, and then Chadwick Clough, the founder, landed me an agent based on that script. . . .’”
