Screenwriting is a solitary occupation. To connect with other writers, artists, and fellow procrastinators, I’m often online, chatting, browsing, and seeing what everyone is up to.
Mostly, I love seeing what folks are creating. Because of that, I’ve acquired minor addictions to Indiegogo and Kickstarter.

As you can see from those pages, I’ve given a few dollars here, and even a few dollars there. And every time I sponsor a project I think, “I should do this more.”
Thus, Support Something Sunday (#SSS) is born.
Here’s the dream: Writers, filmmakers, musicians, and anyone doing creative things, help sponsor OTHER creative folks working on cool projects. It’s a great way to meet other talented individuals, and be a part of something that is getting made.
Hopefully #SSS will help spread this idea like wildfire. But even if we ignite only a small brush fire, I’d consider that a success.*
Each week I’ll pick one project, cause, or film that feels worthy of sponsorship, donate at least $5, and post about the project (and why I picked it) right here on the site.
Want to sponsor a film/short/art-project but not sure which one to choose? Great! Sponsor the project profiled! That’s the point of #SSS! I may even be offering prizes for those who join in sponsoring with me. (Stay tuned!)
If you don’t sponsor the project profiled on #SSS, that’s fine, but hopefully these posts motivate you to help out a creative venue in one way or another.
Perhaps you have a worthy project in need of sponsorship? Drop me an email (eric at scriptdoctoreric dot com)! While I probably won’t be able to choose every suggestion, I’ll certainly take a look at every project emailed to me…
So send me your projects, people. The first Support Something Sunday project will be profiled next week.
* This is a metaphor of course. Script Doctor Eric does not condone the starting of ANY type of fire in the wild, except those designated by camping sites or other controlled areas.
