Welcome to Wiki Screenplay.

This site is committed to supporting the enterprise of quality storytelling - particularly through the medium of film. This is a wiki, which is a website specifically designed to evolve from visitor involvement and input. There is no official WikiScreenplay team developing this website - the work you see here is work offered by WSP visitors. I will and have posted BS's of some films, particularly in the Rite of Passage genre, but everyone visiting who registers an account may update our films list by BS Genre or submit a complete BS2 for a favourite film of theirs. I am hoping to eventually have an extensive library of BS's and films for visitors to explore here. :)

Thank you in advance for contributing. :)
