Broken English Books (Who are we?)
First and foremost we’re storytellers and huge film fans.
However, for the purpose of explaining why this company exists, let us explain our hope for what you gain from our writing (if you need more than a well told entertaining tale):
A month has passed, or a year, or many more and you’ve yet to get your film career underway or you’ve stalled for some reason. With the amount of time in this life this isn’t good. Your solution? Grab some already existing material from Broken English Books like music producers do when sampling to create beats, and make something that you’ve got clearance for (music producers often don’t wait so that example has its flaws).
Purchasing a book from Broken English Books (a subsidiary of Broken English Films) will enable you to get on with things. You not only receive reading material to take you out of your current train of thought, but you also receive the opportunity to create and continue or start your artistic journey. It’s the perfect solution for writers suffering from writer’s block or aspiring cinematographers, actors and directors who don’t want to concentrate on writing but want to concentrate on actually learning and honing their craft.
The material here will enable you either as an artist (or student) to go further than what other books and purchased screenplays will in that you can use them to develop, cast, produce and shoot a short film, web series or feature. You’re not forced to do anything with the books apart from read them at your pleasure… Even that is optional. You can just purchase it and leave it alone. It’s your money, who are we to tell you what to do?
If you do create something from these writings all we ask is that you credit the writer and the source material to “Broken English Books.” We won’t limit any creative choices you make through direction, appearance, casting or any other alterations you select in collaboration with the original source material. Your boundaries do not exist*. These books can either act as fully fledged screenplays to draw from or extremely loose blueprints.
Should you read one of these screenplays and wish to commission the writer for a particular project, please contact us directly.
Take this as blatant instruction and not a hint, start your creative juices and utilize this material. Get filming, even if just on an old camera you have lurking in a cupboard or an older camera phone. Immerse yourself in creation rather than pondering.
* Please note that although we issue permission to draw from, perform and produce projects from the material, your purchase of a Broken English Book does not signify that you own the writing’s story, copyright or intellectual property itself, that belongs to Broken English Films.
