“Ken Wales called me late one night from Los Angeles, wanting me to conference call with him and Bruce Broughton, the composer,” Escobar recounted. “I almost fell off my chair. Bruce is one of my favorite composers, especially for his work on ‘Silverado.’ And now he wants to talk to me about writing the song for ‘Alone Yet Not Alone?’ I was thrilled and honored.”

“We were in the middle of pre-production when the work began on the song,” Escobar continued. “Ken Wales truly had his eye on the ball when he insisted that the song is the linchpin of the production. After thinking about it, I knew Ken was right. We had an opportunity to introduce a new musical classic. I asked that Bruce and Ken consider writing a song as memorable, powerful and timeless as the famous hymn, ‘Amazing Grace,’ known by millions and sung by countless people. They were thinking along the same lines. That commission was a tall order for anyone to attempt, let alone deliver. Bruce (music) and Dennis Spiegel (lyricist) were not afraid, thank God. They set to work immediately and in about two weeks, I got a call from Ken and Bruce, wanting me to sit down, and over the phone at my basement office they played the song ‘Alone Yet Not Alone’ for the very first time. I loved it immediately. They nailed it. We had a song for the ages. And now it is nominated for an Academy Award. What a journey.”

Filmed with a stellar cast in Purcellville, Virginia, this 1940s period film brings you into the world of two Hollywood screenwriters who together must overcome studio pressures and clashing ideals to deliver a script by morning. Will the tenuous partnership last the night?


THE SCREENWRITERS is the inaugural film of the new Advent Associates Film Program. A cast and crew of 30 converged in Purcellville, VA to make the film. All key positions, including the Producer, Director, Writer, were held by Advent Associates -- young filmmakers who’ve been trained over the last 2-3 years in the craft of making full length movies.


Now in Post-Production. Spring 2015 Release.

George Escobar and Michael Snyder, Advent co-founders, had the honor of serving as co-producers of this film. Escobar also served as co-writer and co-director.


Advent’s involvement began from the very beginning, with Escobar crafting a treatment from the novel given to him by the executive producer. Escobar was later commissioned to write a 120 page screenplay from a 130-page single-spaced manuscript. After a series of rewrites the script was developed into a multi-million dollar movie production, with Advent Film Group hired by Enthuse Entertainment for key production elements. Snyder began securing local crew, while Escobar began the casting process and finding locations, working with executives from Enthuse, as well as award-winning filmmaker, Ken Wales, producer of AMAZING GRACE and the much beloved TV series: CHRISTY.
