Former Make A Wish Kid Donates September Earnings to the Global Foundation
Date:9/15/2009

Donating 100 percent of profits from Script A Wish in September

Culver City, CA (Vocus) September 15, 2009 -- When Michael Ferris turned 15, he got his first kidney transplant. When he turned 17, he got his first video camera from the Make A Wish Foundation. And at 23, he helped his first screenwriter sell their script to New Line Studios.

After a few years of helping aspiring screenwriters like Christopher Waild, who now writes for the CBS show "NCIS," he started a company called Script A Wish. The sole mission was to help filmmakers get their work directly into the hands of industry players that could make their dreams a reality.

While a portion of proceeds have been going to the Make A Wish Foundation, Michael decided it wasn't enough.

"While I aspire to help as many filmmakers as I can, I wanted to take an entire month and fund raise for the people who made my own dreams a reality," Ferris said.

Bard Dorros, a manager at a Hollywood powerhouse management firm, said that Script A Wish can be instrumental to a screenwriter's big break.

"The fastest way for an unknown to get their work read by someone like me, is through Ferris," Dorros said. "I trust his taste, so when Michael gives me a script, I know it's something I have to read."

Ferris will never forget how the Make A Wish Foundation has impacted his life.

"People think I'm crazy to be doing this in our current economy, but I think it's the best time," Ferris said. "Right now people seem to be putting their dreams up on a shelf, but I feel like it's my duty to help aspiring filmmakers, like I once was, achieve their dreams as well."
