Well done, Sean, (and Robert)! I know you've been working on this for a long time.

Here's to hoping it's everything you imagine it to be. You must be pretty stoked.

Congrats!!! I just glanced at the first couple pages and I'm already sucked into wanting to read it. Can't right now though... are you gonna be taking down the script anytime soon?

Also, you should celebrate by trading me Ezekiel Elliott for my kicker.


That rug really tied the room together.

Super news - congrats


Thank you very much, Dave.


Quoted from Grandma Bear
Sean rocks!!!

And, rewrites pay off!!!! Lol!

Where did they find the script?  


Thank you, Pia. Yeah, they kind of do. Although, I should say that when the director found the script, he read the original 7WC draft, not the one in this thread and ended up liking the new one even better. It was oddly surprising. And, he definitely found it right here. I was going to start sending it out to indies after the PAGE result, but he swooped in and found it a couple weeks before the Quarters were announced. Go figure.


Quoted from irish eyes
Great news Sean!

Proud of you buddy


Thank you, Mark, and I hope to make everyone here proud by not screwing this up. Lol. Plus, I hate to be this guy, but it's true: if a director can come here and actually think one of my slow-burn talkfest scripts is worth filming, then there is hope for everyone out there and I hope each and every one of you guys gets to see your work on screen one day. =)

Thank you very much, Libby. Well, it's been what, about six years? One of those virtues of never giving up-type of things? Lol. One can hope, but there's a little part of me that's sad on the inside, because there's only one idea I ever had that I truly wanted to direct. But, it's still cool and I'll love it everyday. It hasn't really set in, though, but I'm thinking it eventually will. I'm still in full rewrite mode, so when I finally get to take a step back from it, maybe then it'll occur to me.

Thank you very much, James. Well, unfortunately, it's not a fast-paced script or anything like that, so I would tell you that if you ever got around to reading it, expect it to move at a snail's pace. I haven't received word to have it taken down, but that could change as it gets closer to shooting. We'll see what happens. You remember the good old days when I WAS trying to offload Elliott? Looking back at those trades, neither of us really would've flourished with them. It would've made both of us worse. Lol.

That looks awesome, Sean! VERY excited to see this one come alive! Especially since I read it way back. I think I might have even read it twice, lol.

Keep us posted here please. I used to follow it on FB, but I had to close my account...

Best of luck with this one!!!

I do believe that you read it twice. Thank you very much, Pia, and it'll be nice to see it come out if, for no other reason, than because one of the complaints I got from almost everybody was that it was hard to keep track of all the characters in the script and that, as they said, "it would be easier to keep up with on film". I tend to agree. =)


Quoted from Pale Yellow
Oh my gosh! This is awesome. How is the first time I'm hearing about this!!!??? GREAT news and super congrats to you Sean!!


Because the script literally disappeared for about four years? Lol. No, that's okay, though. Thank you very much, Dena. =)

I'm very excited, as well, and I have two of my fingers crossed. Thank you very much, Khamanna. =)

I think I fall more into the "tentatively optimistic" category. Lol. Thank you very much, Steve. =)

Sorry, I didn't get back sooner, Bill. Internet was virtually non-existent for the last 36 hours. Thank you very much. =)

Except there were a couple too many spoilers in the trailer, but what can you do? Lol.

Christmas crime story poster gunChristmas Crime Story by Sean Chipman...

...has been filmed and you can pre-order it on iTunes. The film opens worldwide on October 24th



How the sausage was made:
Christmas Story (pdf) started out as a 7 Week Challenge Script*  written by Sean & Robert Chipman

A botched Christmas Eve liquor store robbery leads down a destructive path for a cop trying to reconcile with his estranged mother, an alcoholic mall Santa, a mentally unhinged man, his vindictive fiancé and her secret lover.

A few years later it was revised as Christmas Story (pdf)

A few years after that, it was picked up for production.




Be sure and like the Facebook page and talk about it on the Discussion Board and check out the other inline presences:
imdb

Rotten Tomatoes

Wikipedia





*The 7 Week Challenge is a writing challenge wherein writers come up with a feature script in 7 weeks.


Visit SimplyScripts.com for what is new on the site.
