Facebook Users To Make Their Own Movie



TV reality shows - love them or hate them, they are here to stay.

Whilst there are many reality shows already on television, there is one creative outlet that always seems to be overlooked... Writing.

However, if Sarah Eve has her way, that could all be about to change.


Having already written 2 books and with over 100 articles published on the Internet, Sarah has now embarked on a new project with a view of helping other writers get their big break.

“As a writer, I find it very frustrating that there is little support for a new writer to get recognition. Nowadays there are reality shows for dancers, singers, chefs – but nothing for writers. I want to change this.”

Following in the footsteps of reality show moguls Simon Cowell and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sarah has created a reality TV concept which is she is now trying to set up and pitch to the television networks.

The format is simple. Once in production, the series will be split into 2 halves. The first will be dedicated to writers, and will enable them to submit a screen play on a pre-chosen genre. The screenplays will then be shortlisted by a panel of judges for the public to vote and choose which is to be made into a film.

The second half of the series will then open up auditions to the public to find an actor for the lead role(s) in the film. Again a panel of judges will make a short list for the public to vote who wants to appear in the film.

The key element which makes this TV reality show special and stand apart from other reality programmes is that Sarah will be engaging the public from the very beginning of the concept - before it's even gone into production.

Under the banner of Make a Movie Project, Sarah has asked for input from budding writers and actors to help shape and contribute to the concept before approaching the networks.

“I want this reality show to be exactly what the public wants to watch and participate in. The winning screenplay will be written by the public, the winning actor(s) will be chosen by the public – this is effectively their show and their film. I am positive there are exceptionally talented writers and actors just waiting for their break, and I feel privileged to have a hand in creating this opportunity for them.”

Therefore, if you are a budding writer or actor, and you want to help contribute and support the project, please visit: this squidoo site or the official Facebook page

Thank you.

Hi Anne, sure has been awhile since we last chat, hope all is well for you. :-)

This sure sounds like a great idea! I always value creative work. For writers who are willing to devote so much energy and effort in writing, they do deserve a recognition. Not to mention it'll be a great opportunity for new actors too, I only hope I would get the chance to watch the episodes.

Ching Ya, thanks for your kind comment. It's lovely to have the support of others, because you know that when the work is eventually published, the feedback and public support will be great.
