WEBSITE Launched to Support Wannabe Writers, Artists, and Performers

March 22nd, 2010

Description: www.wannabepride.com allows Wannabe actors, writers, musicians,comics, and other artists to share their rejection and victory stories with

other Wannabes in a judgment-free zone.


WESTMINSTER, MD, March 17, 2010 – Silverscreen Writing, a

sole-proprietorship copywriting and scriptwriting company, is launching

www.wannabepride.com – a virtual support group where Wannabe actors,writers, musicians, and other artists can share their stories and vent their

frustrations as they struggle for success. The website is being launched by

Linda Fausnet, owner of Silverscreen Writing and a 15-year veteran of the

Wannabe life. The site features a forum for Wannabes all over the world to

share their most painful rejections and most glorious triumphs. There are

innumerable ‘how-to’ websites offering tips and advice on how to break into

show business. Wannabepride offers what no other website does; a place to

swap war stories and experiences Wannabes face on the difficult and

uncertain struggle for success in often harsh and unforgiving fields of



Not everyone can be a Wannabe.


Wannabes do everything that everyone else does and then they keep going.

They work a day job, clean the house, get the groceries, cook the meals, pay

the bills, and do the yardwork. Then, instead of whining that they “don’t

have time” to pursue their dreams, they go to work on them instead. Even

though there are hundreds of thousands of Wannabes out there, it is easy for

them to feel alone.


More than 50,000 screenplays are registered with the Writer’s Guild of

America each year. Thousands of hopefuls attend American Idol (AI) auditions

in each city where AI offers open calls. Thousands of would-be stand-up

comics attend open mic nights each year. Hundreds of thousands of aspiring

actors flock to New York and Los Angeles annually. There are an awful lot of

Wannabes out there. Many of them aren’t going to make it. Even those who do

get their “big break” will work long and hard for many years before finding

any form of success. To the outside world, Wannabes are losers who aren’t

good enough to “make it” yet.


www.wannabepride.com is designed to encourage Wannabes to be proud of theirwork now; not just when they get the big part, ink the lucrative book

contract, or land the record deal.


In addition to the website, Ms. Fausnet is also currently writing a

nonfiction book in support of Wannabes entitled WANNABE PRIDE: A SHOUT-OUT


book will include her own experiences as a Wannabe screenwriter, as well as

featuring many of the responses that are posted on the website.



About Silverscreen Writing (SW) – SW is a sole proprietorship owned and

operated by writer Linda Fausnet. The company offers copywriting services,

including brochures, flyers, newsletters, and web content, as well as video

scriptwriting services. Ms. Fausnet’s scripted instructional video, Bridging

the Gap, won a Television, Internet, and Video Association of Washington,

D.C. (TIVA) First Place Gold Award. The video can be viewed at

www.silverscreenwriting.net. She has written more than ten screenplays. Herfamily film script, entitled The Hole in the Wall, was optioned by Mega

Films, Inc. Los Angeles. Her screenplay, Rain on the Water, is in the

process of being optioned by Runaway Productions. Her comedy screenplay,

Queen Henry, was a Finalist in the 2007 Progress Writers Competition.

This year for Ahtspot’s 5th Annual Open Call, we are taking it to a whole new level, 3 Cities!!!  The Ahtspot Open Call will be in Boston at Improv Boston’s Main Stage Theater on April 6th, Tazza Café in Providence, RI on June 21st and in Connecticut (Location TBD) as part of the Film Industry Mixer on August 28th.

So first up on Tuesday, April 6th 2009 at 7:00pm at Improv Boston’s Main Stage Theater (40 Prospect St. in Central Square, Cambridge, MA), Ahtspot.com presents the 5th Annual Ahtspot Open Call!  This event is one of the events leading up to Boston’s 48 Hour Film Project. This is an event for actors, filmmakers and theater professionals like no other.  The Ahtspot Open Call is an open forum audition show where talented actors can audition for the crowd of directors, producers and even other actors.  Each actor gets no more than two minutes on stage, and if they go over their time they are hosed down with silly string to let them know it is time to go.  This popular event has been very well attended in the past.  Check out this video from last year’s event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rTZ0x6cAUM

Directors, producers and other theater and film professionals—this is a free event to check out the local New England pool of talent.  From 7 to 9pm you will be able to watch actors audition for the audience, then after the show stick around and approach your favorite talent. Order a drink, relax, take notes and enjoy the show!

This event is run to help promote the 48 Hour Film Project Boston 2010!  This is a contest where filmmakers are challenged to make a complete short film in just 48 hours.  Teams are invited and welcome to the event to cast for their movies, meet other teams, collect additional crew and network with other film and theater professionals.  For more information visit www.48hourfilm.com/boston.

Actors, sign up begins at 6:00pm and there can be a line.  Actors will be taken on a first come, first serve basis.  Ahtspot.com clients will have the ability to pre-register online.  However if anyone is not there when your name is called to go on stage, you will be skipped and added to the end of the line.  Not all performers may get a chance to perform if time runs out.  Remember you have two minutes or less to do your piece.  You can perform anything you want, it is your time to shine!  So get there early or sign up in the members section at www.ahtspot.com.

Ahtspot’s Open Call is an 18+ Event – 21+ to drink. Children under 18 must be with a parent/guardian.

And don’t forget that Providence is June 21st and Connecticut is August 28th.

Hope to see you there
