Jaime Primak Sullivan, Creator Bravo's 'Jersey Belle' Guests on Scriptchat September 14th!

Join us on September 14, 2014 at 5:00PM PDT to pick Jaime Primak's @JaimePrimak brain on successful pitching, commercial concepts and more! Oh, and you'll need your tequila and your trucker mouth for this one. ~ @jeannevb

The best way to chat is in tchat.io site, which auto adds the #scriptchat hashtag. Full chat instructions are here.

Entertainment publicist Jaime Primak Sullivan @JaimePrimak is the Founder and President of Bridge and Tunnel Entertainment, a full-service public relations and strategic marketing agency founded in 2005.

A year after she began, Jaime took her business to Los Angeles, and single handedly launched some of the west coast’s hottest bars and night clubs. Capitalizing on that success, she expanded her PR business to event planning and rocked brand launches, record releases, wrap parties and signature events like Jamie Foxx’s Grammy Party, Diddy’s White Party, The Travis Barker/DJ AM review and the Tony Hawk Foundation fund raiser.

Late 2006, Jaime relocated to Birmingham, Alabama to get married and start a family, but it didn’t slow her down. Bridge and Tunnel Entertainment continues to thrive in public relations, event planning and brand management. In 2012, Bridge and Tunnel Entertainment expanded into production.

In 2012, Jaime sold her concept for the unscripted series, Jersey Belle, to Bravo, in which she both stars and serves as creative producer. Jaime sold her first horror treatment, Fear Followers, which is currently in development at Relativity Media where she is serving as co-producer on the film. In October 2013, Jaime sold her screenplay, Before We Do, to Thunder Road Pictures where she will serve as EP. Her most recent thriller was just picked up by Universal Studios. Her knack for broad concepts solidified her nickname “commercial concepts” with production companies in Hollywood, and she does it all from a little office in Mt. Brook, Alabama.

Locally, Jaime currently sits on-camera as the entertainment reporter for the number one local news station, Fox 6, in Birmingham. Jaime is a featured speaker with Grammy nominated MC Lyte’s “Your Man, Your Money, Your Relationship” panel which began its second national tour in January.

Drawing from her “by any means necessary” business stealth, Jaime created the concept for “Breaking and Entering,” an on-line informative interview format for All Def Digital which will launch the fall of 2014 and produces her “cawfee tawk” segments online.

In 2015 she will have her first film in production; a horror at Relativity. She has optioned a comedy at Thunder Road and is finalizing a deal on a thriller which she is excited to announce shortly.

Her clients have covered some of the biggest national magazines, and appeared on numerous television shows. She currently has clients on 8 major networks.

Today, Jaime is simply the most sought-after independent publicist in her industry. An expert in grassroots public relations for all aspects of the entertainment business and rock solid relationships with the media, Jaime’s notoriety, respect, and demand are unparalleled.

David Jung to Guest on Scriptchat August 17th!

Scriptchat is thrilled to have David Jung @davidfujung as our guest this Sunday, August 17th at 5pm PDT!

 Just go to the chat room and enjoy an hour picking David's brain and enjoying his journey.

His new film, The Possession of Michael King, debuts August 22nd.

David Jung’s family had one of the first VCRs in their neighborhood. It was a huge clunky monstrosity, purchased by his father. Its sole purpose: to record horror films. David’s earliest education came from that machine. He was in charge of hitting the pause button whenever a commercial came on, so that his father could “conserve tape.”

Forced to keep his eyes glued to that glowing tube for endless weekends, he was given an education in gore, one that couldn’t be bought, and one that sadly, he was never graded upon - as he was far from an A student in traditional school subjects... or even a B student, actually.

His fanatical dad dressed up as Dracula, all the time. He wore a black cape (with a sewn-in red liner) carried a silver tipped cane, and glued on homemade fangs (chiseled from ivory, right in the basement workshop). He travelled the neighborhood this way paying visits to friends and relatives, even crashing and leading the occasional parade.

This became embarrassing for Dave as a teen. But his dad’s knowledge of the supernatural was unbeatable. Its discussion took precedence over sports, politics, or any other such nonsense at the dinner table.

This led David to experiment, at a very young age, not with sex or drugs, but with Ouija boards, satanic scriptures, and homemade scientific experiments which attempted to raise the dead.

When these failed to produce results, instead of giving up and facing the prospect of searching for a job in the “real world,” Jung headed to the one place on earth where reality doesn’t matter: Hollywood. Having no discernable advantage over the throng of young talent in the pool (a.k.a. a relative in the biz), David proceeded to muscle his way, quite literally, into Roger Corman’s (now defunct) Concord New Horizon Studios in Santa Monica.

Upon noticing a group of laborers carrying an assortment of prop trees, hedges and other greenery into the studio off the back of a truck, Jung nimbly stepped into the assembly line, hefted a tree, and headed off into the studio after them.

A grueling twenty-two hour day later, Jung was approached by the director, and asked to join the crew.

Since then, Jung has worked as an executive at Walt Disney Studios, Paramount Pictures, and has written films for just about every studio in town.

The Possession of Michael King is his directorial debut.
