As you may have read on my CV page, I've produced several web-sites in the past. Most notably, IndieFilmWeb.com. A site that existed solely to help support independent filmmakers and musicians.
Therefore it'll probably come as no surprise when I tell you that DevelopmentHell.com will - when it's launched in the back half of 2010 - serve the self same function for screenwriters.
One of the many features DevelopmentHell.com will offer, will be 'Tales from the Trenches' from screenwriters who have had the good fortune / misfortune to have one or more of their scripts sucked down into the seventh circle of development hell.
So, if you're a screenwriter who has suffered through the development process and lived to tell the tale; I invite you to contact me - as between now and DevelopmentHell.com's official launch, submissions are being accepted from screenwriters who wish to show their battle scars to their fellow writers, in the hope that some collective lessons on how to mange both expectation and the development process itself, can be shared for the collective good.
Submissions are also being accepted for general 'screenwriting' or 'how to' articles for the site. These articles can be from anyone with a point of view and something to say. Be they screenwriters (professional or newbie - everyone's got a story) agents, producers, studio-execs etc.
