Storyline

"Dreams on Spec" takes an intimate look at how far people will go - and how much they will sacrifice - for the chance to pursue their dreams. This feature-length documentary delves into the lives of three aspiring Hollywood screenwriters as they pour their hearts into their spec scripts, pitch their ideas to anyone who will listen, go to meetings, hold table reads, and work at low-level day-jobs - all in the hopes of one day seeing one of their beloved creations made into a movie. These poignant portraits are intercut with wisdom from a "Greek Chorus" of superstar Hollywood creative-types like James L. Brooks, Nora Ephron, Gary Ross, and Carrie Fisher to forge a funny and compelling look at inspiration, creativity, and solitude in the movie industry. Written by Anonymous

Definitely worth watching
8 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this documentary about screen writing very educational about the process of getting a script made into a movie. It is a very good how-to.

Dreams on Spec follows three screenwriters on their path, which they hope will lead to getting their script turned into a movie. Interviews with well-known screenwriters who offer wisdom and advice are woven throughout the story. Their interviews are humorous and can really inspire you in your writing journey.

Dreams on Spec is a must-have for writers -- a tool to put in your writer's toolbox. You can take it out again anytime you need to be re-invigorated.
