“Recommend” Writer Mark Mahon Directs Award-Winning Feature

Mark Mahon and Michael Madsen.

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.”
