Covering Cinema From All Across The African Diaspora


If you've been a reader of this blog in recent months, then I'm sure you're fully aware of a site called, where anyone with a computer and broadband Internet access can watch documentary films, both short-form and feature-length!

Yesterday, on SnagFilms, I watched the below documentary titled, Dreams on Spec, a film I think many of you screenwriters will appreciate.

Every year screenwriters across the globe finish tens of thousands of screenplays, but only a tiny percentage are produced as movies - whether for the theatrical or television screen.

Dreams on Spec takes an intimate look at how far some will go - and how much they will sacrifice - for the chance to pursue their screenwriting dreams. It delves into the lives of three aspiring Hollywood screenwriters, each with ever-evolving scripts, pitching their ideas to anyone with an ear, from one meeting to the next, all while working at low-level day-jobs, with the hope that someday, they will see one of their beloved creations produced as a film.

It's not going to blow your mind with its rawness and revelations, but it's worth a viewing.

Screenwriters, you're not alone in this :o)
