Armitages set service for scripters

StudioNotes to pair scribes with exex

Director George Armitage (“Grosse Pointe Blank”) and son Brent have launched StudioNotes (SN) at www.studionotes.com, a service providing aspiring writers in-depth, studio-style development notes for a fee.

Brent will serve as SN’s prexy and CEO. Company, whose execs have worked for major studios and networks, is partnered with nearly 50 agencies and production companies.

Brent and George are personally financing SN, along with several scribes and producers.

Material deemed ready for immediate acquisition or representation is made available to SN affiliates through SN’s weekend read program, which will feature one selected script each week.

SN is designed for aspiring writers and execs looking to make their mark. Company will provide notes, development and access at a cost of $300 per screenplay of 130 pages or less. SN also covers treatments and teleplays, and provides individual consultation to writers at the rate of $100 an hour.

“StudioNotes will level the playing field for those trying to break into Hollywood,” Brent Armitage said. “All writers should be able to receive the access and insight needed to get their projects made.”

Among the company’s other services is a mentoring program designed to connect professional writers, producers and development executives with aspiring writers.

A member of the WGA, Brent adopted the Gregory MacDonald novel “Scutter” for Sandollar Prods. In 1996, he joined his father as associate producer on the John Cusack/Minnie Driver starrer “Grosse Pointe Blank.” He subsequently re-teamed with his father, penning the original screenplay “Mr. Personality” for Columbia TriStar Pictures.

In 1999, Armitage adapted “The Feather Men” for Granada Entertainment, slated to begin lensing in the fall.

George Armitage’s long career in the biz includes helming “Miami Blues” and penning the HBO comedy “The Late Shift,” which won him an Emmy nomination.
