Hollywood’s elite have the Black List, which is made up of complete scripts that haven’t been turned into movies. Many popular films like “Juno” and “500 Days of Summer” have graced the Black List, before becoming movies in theaters.
Now, New York University has a similar concept — the Purple List.
Two years ago, NYU film graduate students Ash Bhalla and Shandor Garrison decided they wanted to create something akin to the Black List to showcase NYU’s ready-to-go scripts for feature films. Many film schools are unable to offer support for feature-length projects due to lack of resources, Garrison said.
