Jason M. Vaughn’s science-fiction-drama screenplay (now titled THE GREEN SEA) was a grand-prize winner in the 2012 Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition. It is being developed with Matthew G. Zamias of Picturesque Films. Jason’s psychological indie thriller, EXXIE, however, was most responsible for landing him on ISA’s Development Slate, after their Director of Community Outreach, Max Timm, in his generosity, took a chance on a writer he didn't even know and read the first draft. Jason has since workshopped EXXIE with Gordy Hoffman (founder of the BlueCat Screenplay Competition). In between working on several short scripts, and his other current feature projects (INTERLOPERS; PATSY; and SWAY), Jason is also writing short fiction and reworking his literary science-fiction novel, CERULEAN.
