Become a Member of the Team

Thank you for your interest in joining the Broken Dreams team.

A photograph can be made by a single individual, but It takes an army to make a film. Writers are required to develop a story.  The film needs actors to bring the story alive. Behind the scenes, a full crew works to capture the story on film. But there is one more group that is possibility more important to the success of the film than writers, cast and crew.  It’s the individuals who provide the funds to make the project possible.  Without those team members, the project remains just an idea.

The success of any film project starts with a good screenplay. Response from the film festival circuit suggests we have a GREAT screenplay.  Broken Dreams, written by Copper Pen Pictures President Ron Hervey, has been selected by 11 out of 17 festivals in which it was submitted – a high selection ratio.

Out of 11 festival selections, the screenplay won won Best Short Screenplay at the Red Dirt Film Festival in Stillwater, Oklahoma, Best Screenplay at the Calcasieu Parish Short Film Festival in Sulphur, Louisiana, Best Comedy Short Screenplay at the Fort Worth Indie Film Showcase, and top short screenplay at the Sunny Side Up Film Festival in Ardmore, Oklahoma. Broken Dreams came in second in the screenplay competition at the Rendezvous Film Festival at Amelia Island Florida. The script was a finalist at the Twister Alley Film Festival, Lake Charles Film Festival, Bare Bones International Film Festival, Austin Comedy Short Film Festival and the Houston Comedy Film Festival.

We are excited and confident we have a great screenplay as a base for our film project. We hope that you will be just as excited about joining our team.
