Screenwriter Scott Sawitz (FOR LOVE OR MUSIC)
I’m always looking for the right place to submit, not just anyone that’ll take me … and a festival for comedy sounded amazing. I got great feedback and used it to better develop myself as a writer.
Watch the Screenplay Reading:
Ashley Powell is an ordinary bar singer when she rockets to fame overnight from a viral video. The song she was playing becomes a hit and she winds up on the fast track to musical stardom. She’s carrying a big secret though: she can only write music when she’s miserable after a break up. With an album on the way she’s forced to write it the only way she knows how: breaking hearts. When the great love of her life falls into her life, she’s forced to choose between happiness or success.
