The Short Screenplay Challenge is a competition that challenges writers around the world to create short screenplays (5 pages max.) based on genre, location, and object assignments. Each writer will participate in at least 2 writing challenges and as many as 4 depending on how well they place in each challenge.  When the competition begins, writers are placed in groups where they will be judged against other writers within their same group.  Each group receives its own unique genre, location, and object assignments (see past examples here).  After 2 challenges, the top 5 writers that score the highest advance to the next challenge (#3).  In Challenge #3, writers are placed in new groups and given a new genre, location, and object assignment.  The top 5 writers from each of the groups in Challenge #3 advance to the fourth and final challenge of the competition where they are given the final genre, location, and object assignment and compete for thousands in cash and prizes.  Sound like fun?  Register below or click here for a more detailed description of how the competition works.

Nunnery

Nunnery dramatizes the life of a highly educated, very beautiful, and very wealthy young woman, who despises her parent’s opposition, she chooses to follow her heart and moves in with a very handsome French/Italian art student wannabe who introduced her to drugs and prostitution.

I am working on the scene where her parents learned about her secret life and gave her the ultimatum to end her relationship or change her lifestyle, or she is not welcome to the family.

How you will react as a parent, and what are you going to do if you were the character?

Nunery UPDATE

The idea  Nunnery started as a short story and became a trilogy. The first book/movie NUNNERY, it’s in progress.

Volume 2 The Dark Lord: I have the outline but I feel still needs some work.

Volume 3 “The Working title for the final segment is Nunnery Three.”  Personally, this is my favorite. The main character, in the second segment, becomes the Biblical Character Lilith. Of course, the viewers should expect some creative madness.

The Malediction Legacy UPDATE

LOGLINE: A Police detective investigates a murder and discovers that she can be the next victim of a 350-year Native American curse. Now she must find the lost book of the medicine man to stop it.

After a very long battle with twists and turns, revisions and rewrites, I have finished the Malediction Legacy, and now I’m racing towards the finish line in 2017 Script Pipeline’s feature film competition, and waiting for the results on July 31st. Good luck Elissa Ashlin Harlow, may the great spirit be at your side.

Nunnery

nunneryYvonne Leo, a young woman from a wealthy and religious family in Paris, falls in love with Mateo Salomon, a French-Italian art student wannabe, who introduces her to drugs and prostitution.

Her mother, Clotilde Leo, researcher for the Louvre Museum and editor of Vogue magazine, neglected by her husband, Hans, begins seeing a man from a male escort service, (Mateo), desperately tries to make her realize that Mateo only uses her.

Hans Leo, a German workaholic scientist with a prestigious position in the European Space Institute, from an anonymous letter and photographs, learns about Yvonne’s secret life, and gives her the ultimatum to either end her relationship and change her lifestyle, or she is not welcome to the family…

After a TV contest, a straight female impersonator succeeds as a high fashion model.

James Dalessandro: This is a brave attempt at a highly original story, and last and most importantly – a wonderful script. It is edgy, well structured a wonderful piece with great characters, set in an interesting environment. JD.
James Dalessandro is the Co-founder of the Santa Cruz festival, where for four years he also served as its director. He is the writer of the House of Blues radio hour which hosted by Dan Aykroyd (as Elwood Blues) during the period in which it won the Platinum Award from the National Broadcasters Association. He is also the writer/creator of Rock On with The Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek.
Geno Scala: Screenwriter, Script mentor. I love it. The hook to me is a female impersonator becoming a high-fashioned model. That’s cool- “Tootsie” meets America’s top Model.

Aburna vs. Nunnery

After The Malediction Legacy, I had planned to continue with the Nunnery, an idea that started as a short story, but it became a two-volume novel. The story dramatizes the life of a wealthy young woman who fell in love with the wrong man, and abandoned by her family fell into prostitution and control substance; but as she reached to the house of God, discovered that she is destined to attract evil. A Gothic tale set in France. However, I decided to proceed with a 400 year Goth, Satanic tale with historical events I have titled Aburna.

Meet Me At 10

Chapter 1

‘Oh Lord,
Hear my prayer,
Oh Lord,
Hear my prayer,
Grant my enemies a song that will fill their head instead of me,
Oh Lord,
Hear my prayer

Beep!

Beep! Beep!…………….. Beeeeeeeep!

The last ‘Beep’ getting lowered in tone the further away the monstrous truck had sped by Shona. It woke her up. And she was walking. She stopped and put her hands on her weary knees to catch some breath after her near miss. That really was close. She must have wandered into the dusty road exhausted. She tasted particles kicked up by the huge tyres and spat them out as best she could wincing through the temporary stinging sand fog left by the huge speeding tyres. Still out of breath with adrenaline fuzzing through her, she stood upright, hands on hips and looked around. Where was she? Well she wasn’t in Louisiana…
