This weekend was hard. That's an understatement.
We lost one of the pioneering women for gender equality, we're still in the midst of a terrible fire season, the pandemic is raging on, and our country is more divided than ever.
To offer a little light during these difficult times, we've rounded up some of our favorite success stories from the past week.
We dedicate this week's success roundup to the one, the only, RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsburg). Thank you for everything. You were a VOICE for women, a steadfast feminist, a cultural icon, and most importantly, you spoke the truth.
In an age where the truth has become subjective, we will make it our job as storytellers to keep sharing the truth and continue this fight for you!
ISA Screenwriting Success Stories
Management Representation Secured
Crystal Harris found ISA's Virtual Pitch challenge through a fellow writer, and literally submitted the pitch a day before the deadline. The next week, she learned she was 1 of 4 winners. Since then, things have been moving very quickly! She was accepted onto ISA's Development Slate, and has been working with the Development Team on the project. Two weeks ago, she was introduced to manager Matt Prater from Citizen Skull Productions. They had a great talk about life in general and (of course her writing). We are happy to announce that Crystal is now repped by Matt and moving forward with Citizen Skull Productions.
THE DROME Optioned And In Development
ISAConnect Member Hunter Davis' screenplay THE DROME has been optioned by producers Gerry Pass (12 Feet Under) and Lucas Foster (Ford vs. Ferrari, Morbius, Man on Fire, Bad Boys) and is currently in development.
