Watch ‘Dreams On Spec’ here… A ‘must-see’ for all screenwriters

If you are a screenwriter, this feature length documentary is going to resonate with you I am sure. ‘Dreams On Spec’ follows the journey of three spec screenwriters in Hollywood, through angst, heartache, rejection… It’s touching, moving and inspirational, not to mention educational.

I watched it over the weekend and after a little googling, discovered it legally online, and so I am able to bring it to you now.

So put the kettle on, clear 90 minutes and enjoy the journeys of Joe, Deborah and David… You will laugh, you will cry and yes, you will feel the pain 😉

The official website for the film is here…

Onwards and upwards!

    Great doc, came away with mixed feelings, sad to see some dreams never getting anywhere but also uplifting that others make it. I just watched the trailer for Behind the Mask on IMDB. Looks like a pretty good film and great seeing the script David Stieve wrote actually getting made.

    Nice one Chris. The doco felt very close to home, nice to see someone else put in years of work and sacrifice, pushing only for it to amount to having to pick themselves up and start the whole creative process again from scratch on a different script, religiously repeating an internal mantra to yourself …this next one’s going to be the one when finally everything changes. You’d have to be mad or some kind of masochist to do it…but we do. Many thanks

    Nice find. Just watched this. An interesting 90 mins (though probably shouldve spent it working…!). I can 100% relate to this, having had a spec script optioned back in 2005. I was going to give up the dayjob, follow it to LA, but after two years of being told it was going ahead, with this actor and that actor attached, Miramax at one point pledging millions, the project folded because there was a vaguely similar film in production elsewhere. But this film nails one truth: you carry on and hope the next one will be THE one. (why do these comments always feel like a selfhelp forum??)

    This is the most depressing film an aspiring screenwriter could watch! It’s a film about people who don’t make the grade basically. 90 minutes are better spent improving your writing, I say!
