Watch Free Documentaries - 'Dreams on Spec'Documentary takes a poignant look at the screenwriter's struggle.

In December, 2007, the quirky low-budget film 'Juno' became a national sensation and box-office smash, winning fame and an Oscar for its screenwriter Diablo Cody, an inexperienced, ex-stripper and blogger. But Cody's is a needle-in-a haystack-story in an industry where each year tens of thousands of scripts are penned, but only a few hundred are given the Hollywood treatment.

'Dreams on Spec', a documentary by Daniel Snyder, takes an in-depth look at the lives of three screenwriters from very different worlds who share a willingness to sacrifice everything to see their scripts become movies and their dreams become realities.

Featuring commentary from successful screenwriters like James L. Brooks and Carrie Fisher, 'Dreams on Spec' is a portrait of the compelling lengths traveled to see creativity come to life. Watch the film in full, or snag it onto your own site, from
