2012 HeartWalk: Get considered by Benderspink and Help Fight Heart Disease...
 
Okay, folks, itís that time of year. Once again Iíll be partnering with Daniel Vang of Benderspink to help raise money for the 2012 American Heart Associationís South Sound Heart Walk.

Last year we raised over $8,000 to help fight heart disease and stroke and two writers who donated wound up gaining representation. Countless other writers earned an open door policy with Daniel to submit future material.

This year weíre hoping to raise at least $10,000. Hereís how it will work.

A $25 donation guarantees that Daniel will read the first ten pages of your feature film script or television pilot.

A $50 donation guarantees he will read the first fifty pages of your work.

A $100 donation guarantees he will read the entire piece.

Youíll be considered for representation by one of the top management/production companies in Hollywood while supporting a great cause.

If you make a $25 or a $50 donation the idea is that Daniel will not want to put the material down after however many pages he has agreed to read and will want to read on because itís so good, etc.

Use the following link to get to my donation page via the American Heart Association's secure websiteÖ.

https://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=1000223&lis=1&kntae1000223= B7C0C3EE9A48497683DA3525B9B3AC0D&supId=227801200

Per his request, I will coordinate all submissions to Daniel and will forward you his response.

Once you make your donation please send me a private message here or email me if you already have my email to let me know and Iíll instruct you from there on the submission process.

This year's Heart Walk takes place on October 6th so we'll be raising money and accepting donations until then.

This is a win/win, people. Good luck and thank you for helping me honor my grandfather Bob Coppola's memory while championing this worthwhile cause.

Can I pay $30 dollars because my inciting incident doesn't occur until page 12?

I kid, I kid. Great cause, looking forward to participating this year.

This is really such a great idea. Is it possible to send more than one script, say if I donated $50? And then 25 pages of each? (They're sitcom pilots, so they're not even 50 pages long). Thanks!

Hey Joe,

I donated money last time around, but never got around to sending anything in. The script I was working on just kind of fell apart and well, it was a rough year all around. I learned my lesson a long time ago to never submit stuff that's not 100%.

I still consider it money well spent though, and will happily make a fresh donation this year if I get something together. Thanks for doing this again.

You can send multiple scripts in and split up the reads like that. That's fine. Always submit the entire piece, though, as what we want is for Daniel to like the work so much that he'll want to read on, etc...etc...

So far we've raised $500 in less than a day! Great job everybody :thumbsup:

Hi Joe, will Daniel be reading all submissions at a future point, or reading and deciding as they come in?

Thanks!

Daniel passed on our action/comedy feature last year...But my partner and I are pretty excited about a new hour-format TV spec we dashed off while also working on a second 110-pager.

Would Daniel be willing to consider teleplays, or is he strictly interested in features?
