YEARDLEY | MARGARET HERRICK LIBRARY
In November of 2010, Heath C. Michaels received an email from the Scripts Librarian at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that began:
Dear Mr. Michaels,
The Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences is interested in acquiring a copy of the screenplay YEARDLEY for the permanent Core Collection.
Yeardley was Michaels’ first feature film, made for less than $15,000, which went on to win many awards including BEST FEATURE in Los Angeles at the Malibu International Film Festival. Today, the screenplay is archived in the Academy’s Margaret Herrick Library in Los Angeles.
