Script Pipeline discovers and develops
writers for film and television, connecting them with Hollywood's top producers, agents, and managers.
For over 12 years, the company has been one of the leading screenplay analysis and circulation services, bridging the gap between up-and-coming writers and influential executives. Through its consulting services, research tools, Secret Door Pitchfest, and annual writing and idea competitions, Script Pipeline continues to foster writers worldwide and offer unprecedented access to the industry.
Recent success stories include Evan Daugherty selling Snow White and the Huntsman to Universal for $3 million, and the contest-winning script Killing Season produced in 2012 with Robert De Niro and John Travolta, set for a 2013 release.
Operation Endgame, also a former Workshop "Recommend" screenplay written by Brian Watanabe, was released in 2010 and stars Ellen Barkin, Ving Rhames, and Zach Galifianakis.
Chadwick Clough, Executive Director
After graduating from Santa Clara University in 1999, Chadwick Clough moved to Los Angeles, where he worked in feature film development for multiple production companies. Realizing they needed a solution to the hundreds of spec scripts left unread in production company and studio offices, Chadwick envisioned a matchmaking service between up-and-coming writers and film executives to better serve both parties. For the writer, their material could be reviewed by an impartial third party, while the industry could receive quality projects via a trusted filter. In 2000, Script P.I.M.P. (Pipeline Into Motion Pictures) was formed and has since offered coverage services, annual writing competitions, the Secret Door Pitchfest, and the Writers Database, a composite directory of production companies, agencies, and managers looking for material. In 2010, the company changed its name to "Script Pipeline."
In the last several years, Chadwick has been instrumental in creating a synergy between writers with proper representation and production contacts, such as Robert Nelms on the film Between (2005) and Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman) with manager Jake Wagner. He played a criticial role in the funding of two independent features, The Living Wake (2007), which garnered Script Pipeline's first production company credit, and Operation Endgame (2010). Chadwick served as producer on the Mike O'Connell/Jesse Eisenberg Wake and executive producer on the ensemble cast Rogues, a screenplay originally submitted through Script Pipeline's Writers Workshop and later produced on a near $5 million budget. Script Pipeline has also served as a creative consultant on other independent films produced in recent years.
Beyond running Script Pipeline, Chadwick wrote Creative Screenwriting's "Production Spotlight" article for six years. He has led seminars at the Screenwriting Expo in Los Angeles, lectured on screenwriting and entrepreneurship at the
University of Southern California and UCLA, acted as a USC mentor, and has taken part in the Big Brothers LA mentorship program for
the past eight years.
Through the "Circus of Joy" at the Hollywood
Improv and other venues, Chadwick has promoted comedy shows across Los Angeles,
which in the past have featured Drew Carey, Louis C.K., Daniel Tosh, Natasha
Leggero, Chris Fairbanks, Mike O'Connell, Brian Keith Etheridge, Henry
Phillips, and actor/comic Craig Robinson. In 2009, Circus of Joy was rated one of the top monthly comedy shows in Los Angeles by LA Weekly. To view some of the comics: Past Circus of Joy shows.
Over the past decade, Chadwick's goal has remained the same: to assist the budding writer with an array of resources on how to improve their craft and give them exposure in a highly competitive marketplace.
