Hi, I'm Jax Kearney. I am an award winning screenwriter living in greater Atlanta. There has not been many screenwriting opportunities here in Atlanta to date with this kind of high end successful talent,  like those that will be here for the ScreenCraft Writers' Summit. This is their website here:

https://screencraft.org/atlanta/ 

The Atlanta ScreenCraft Writers Summit, held in conjunction with the Atlanta Film Festival will feature the most diverse and successful Hollywood writers ever at an event in Atlanta, and I want to be there. I need to be there. This could be a career changing event for writers, problem is, I can't afford it.

I have been  living week to week in pursuit of my dream of making a living as a professional screenwriter, by living as lean as possible. I am able to devote a lot of time to writing, and it has paid off. In the past three years I have won three awards for my screenplays at film festivals, including "Best New Writer" from the Action On Film Festival (Las Vegas). So I simply don't have it to spend the money on this excellent opportunity, with a return on investment potential that is off the charts.

So, that being said, I'm going to do something I've rarely ever done in my life, and that is ask for help. I really think this writer's summit can be a career changing event, and I'm asking for your help to get me there.

The basic access to the Writer's Summit is $375 to attend all the classes and compete in the "Best Pitch" contest, however, the Elite Summit Badge includes getting to work one on one with a successful Hollywood writer, agent, or producer. The elite badge is $575 which is why I've set the amount at $600. Any additional funds will go to making up for lost wages from my day job.

The Writer's Summit is April 5-8, 2019 which is why this pledge drive will only last until March 29th, so that I can hopefully secure one of the dwindling spots for an elite badge.

So that's my basic pitch. I realized I have over 500 Facebook friends and if everyone gave me a dollar, I could make it. So, why to help change a person's life...cheap?

Okay, so if you help me out, I will do the following:

Anyone who pledges $10 bucks, will get to read the unsold screenplay of their choice on my website, TheJaxCompany.com You would pick from these scripts:

The Screenplays of Jax Kearney 

Anyone who pledges $25 bucks, can read THREE scripts from this list.

Anyone who pledges $50 can read all of them!

If anyone of you are liquid and contribute $100 to my cause, I will let you read an uncirculated early draft of a new script, and give notes on the script that I may or may not include in the rewrites!

So if you can help, please do! I want to thank all of you who even so much as came to this page and read my pitch. Thank you for your time. I hope you can contribute, and send me to the Atlanta Screencraft Writers' Summit!
