Jason M. Vaughn’s first screenplay, a romantic science-fiction drama 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 ISA's own Max Timm read an early draft and loved it. Jason has since workshopped EXXIE with Gordy Hoffman (founder of the BlueCat Screenplay Competition). In between working on short scripts and other feature projects, SWAY being the one he's most excited about, Jason is also writing short fiction and personal creative non-fiction and reworking his literary science-fiction novel, CERULEAN.

Quieting the sound of voices, is what writing is. Characters, that are not satisfied until their story is told. They come to whisper the events of their lives into the writer's ear. They wait for the day to be heard and be brought to life. They exist in a realm of fantasy, until a writer tells their story. They live in different worlds that mirror our own. Some of their stories are dark. Some stories are triumphant but the stories must be told. I have been writing and learning the craft for most of my life. Mostly self taught, I try to tell a good story. A Story from voices that are often overlooked and ignored. I am so happy to be a part of the storytelling craft.
