Welcome to the website for Broken Dreams – a short indie film from Copper Pen Pictures, LLC. The film is currently in development.

It All Starts with a Screenplay
As with most film projects, our journey starts with a screenplay. Broken Dreams is an award-winning script written by Ron Hervey during downtime in the production of another film that Ron penned and produced, along with Espinosa Entertainment, The Exit Bag.
Broken Dreams follows two nursing home roommates as they attempt to swipe pills that will give them vivid illusions of being young again. Click here for more story info.
The screenplay is currently finishing up its run on the film festival circuit where it has had success. To date it has been selected by ten out of fifteen festivals in which it was submitted. The script won best short screenplay at the Red Dirt Film Festival in Stillwater, Oklahoma and The Calcasieu Parish Short Film Festival in Sulphur, Louisiana. It won best short comedy screenplay at the Fort Worth Indie Film Showcase. It was also the top short screenplay at the Sunny Side Up Film Festival in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
The script is currently in consideration for two additional festivals, and depending on acceptance, could finish the festival circuit early next year.
