Our Mission

If we could do or be anything else we surely wouldn't choose screenwriting. Writing is not a desire for the team of Bridge 17 - it's a must. We live for the strain of a blank white page and yearn to fill it up.

Good writers keenly observe the world around them. Great writers have a story for the world around them. Our one and only goal is to be a penetrating voice in the midst of history, whether that history is yours or ours, we share in the adventure of story.
