Graduate One Step Closer To Screenwriting Dream

in Software
Many individuals across the world dream of achieving recognition for their screenwriting but only a relatively small number succeed in realising these aspirations.

However, a man in the US is now one step closer to achieving his ambition, it has been revealed. According to reports in the Quad News, less than a year after graduating from his course of media studies at Quinnipiac University, John Kelley has sold a screenplay to a small production company in Minnesota.

Called Norm, his offering is one of four such creations he has completed and there are two more on the way. Potentially using screenwriting software, the talented youngster works on his scripts after finishing his day job as an assistant research executive at Millward Brown.

Commenting on his success with Norm, he said: "Selling it was always a pipedream, but to be able to say it's going into production, that's a dream come true."

He went on to suggest that through his screenwriting, he aims to make people laugh.

Meanwhile, Mr Kelley added: "Norm is the story of a meek, balding, OCD-ridden, overweight high school teacher whose life changes when he lies to his mother in her dying moments and subsequently inherits from her a family heirloom that once belonged to Marie Antoinette."

His script was a finalist in the 2010 American Screenwriting Competition but it was the way in which he used screenplay writing software in the process that gained more attention. Writers use professional screenwriting software when creating their pieces not only to format and stylize them, but to receive constructive criticism for their work and to review the efforts of others.

While the process of creating an offering of this kind has not got any easier over the years, there is now support in the form of script writing software that is available for those keen to get involved. This script writing software can help individuals structure and plan their work more successfully in line with industry standards.
