Introduce Yourself : Screenwriter by Jason Lee


Hi folks!

Pleased to meet ya! I'm a student in the Screenwriting program at CSU Northridge. My short drama, "Reverse English," was selected by the faculty this past Spring for CSUN's Screenwriting Showcase. My animated fantasy script, The Tiger's Daughter, has been doing well in this summer's contests, reaching the finals in the Screencraft Sci-Fi & Fantasy competition (Top 10) and the LAUNCH Million Dollar Screenplay Contest (still ongoing), as well as the quarterfinals of Stage 32's Sci-Fi & Fantasy Competition.

Some of my favorite genres to write are comedy, fantasy, horror, drama, sci-fi, historical, superhero action, and Westerns -- and I'm looking forward to trying my hand at just about everything else. Most of the screenplays I've written so far have been features and shorts, but I've also got a few TV pilots and specs under my belt. The projects I'm working on for the upcoming school year include a comedy set in Renaissance Italy and a crime drama that takes place in a small Texas town in 1910.

In addition to original work, I enjoy doing adaptations and script polishes. Recently helped punch up a comedy pilot that's being pitched to Bad Robot, which was a ton o' fun.

Very good. I write romantic comedy (2 feature scripts completed, working on a 3rd) and run the Carole & Co. film history site, Welcome!
