Online film sites Movie Partners and SU Internet have merged, bringing together two companies with sites dedicated to screenwriting and to independent film production.
Under terms of the deal, which was in the low six-figure range, SU Internet founder Christopher Wehner will stay on as editor and chief of the SU sites for 24 months. The company’s sites include ScreenwritersUtopia.com, IscriptDB.com, netscreenwriter.com, ScreenwritingAwards.com and the Global Literary Market. He also will serve as senior VP of development for Movie Partners Inc. ScreenwritersUtopia has about 100,000 visitors a month.
That company runs MoviePartners.com, a portal site for content creators and indie filmmakers, with access to talent directories, film crew lists, location scouting and more.
