Blind Courage Screenplay Receives Stellar Reviews

The Black List  has become a Hollywood institution whose annual unveiling each December has nearly as much buzz as the Academy Award nominations amongst screenwriters.

Over 300 Black List screenplays have been made as feature films. Those films have earned over $26 billion in worldwide box office, have been nominated for 264 Academy Awards, and have won 48, including Best Pictures SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, THE KING'S SPEECH, ARGO and SPOTLIGHT, and ten of the last twenty screenwriting Oscars.

Here's what they had to say about "Blind Courage"!

"Cinematic gold"
"This film absolutely needs to be made."
"Will turn a profit at the box office."
"Great fodder for a movie."
"The culture of the Trail and its hikers comes alive in the details."
"Many audiences will attracted to Bill's story of perseverance, strength and faith."
"Bill's an engaging protagonist in this character-driven adventure-drama."
 

Bill Irwin was an incredible man, who God used as a vessel to show the world what "walking by faith" (2 Corinthians 5:7) truly looks like. We are excited about our own Blind Courage journey making this film, and are praising God every step of the way!

Blind Courage director, Clint Ross, speaks with reporter Aislinn Sarnacki of Bangor Daily News (BDN) about the death of Bill Irwin.

EXCERPT:

Bill Irwin, the only blind person to solo hike the entire Appalachian Trail, died on March 1 at age 73, after a two-year battle with cancer. His life story is, without a doubt, an inspiring one — for outdoorsmen, for addicts, for Christians or for anyone cast into darkness, struggling to find their way.
“I think in the age of heroism and how we view it, Bill made me realize that there are real heroes out there, and that these real heroes have their own struggles, just like we do,” said Michael “Clint” Ross, who considers Irwin to be his personal hero.
“But what makes them heroes,” Ross continued, “is the fact that they persevere through it all.”
