Writers Wanted! MovieBytes is looking for articles. Call for Submissions
I haven't run an imdb on any of the other finalists, but I'm one of the finalists and there's an IMDB page with my name, but it's not me. I wish it were, though :) So I'm guessing at least some of this is a case of mistaken identity.
Martin, I wasn't out to prove anything except that, in my case, "I" have an imdb page that isn't "me", so the mix-up does happen and did, in my case.
Of course, it's possible I'm a secret Script Pimp agent... I just came onto this board, because on their website, Pimp said they'd be announcing the grand prize winners on July 24th, but there's nothing on the website, and I couldn't make it to the show, so I'm going to various boards, trying to see if anyone was there and who won, while I wait for word.
Did they take the QF's down? When I go there, it's all blank w/the message that they're announcing July 30th.
Never mind! A firefox issue.
I'm one of the finalists, too, and there's an IMDB account that is NOT me. Some actor.
Also, just for my background: I've never received a dime for writing, know absolutely nobody in the industry, and am almost as newbie as you can get. In 2004, I took a leap and finally submitted a script to Pimp Contest and Scriptapalooza and it made the finals in both, but until late last year when I started writing again, had stopped writing and was busy getting a master's degree in sociology (that did involve some writing; just not for the screen :)
So I just wanted to let you all know that for me -- as a complete unknown (feel free to IMDB and google me to death) -- script pimp contest was a great and satisfying experience, and I'm proof that you don't have to be somebody to place.
And congrats, Noah! I look forward to seeing you in late August and congrats and good luck to everyone on Page and Scriptapalooza. It looks like there are some excellent writers on this board, and I'll look forward to learning from you all.
Just curious -- scriptapalooza sent me an email a few weeks back saying a prod comp had contacted them for my contact info -- I still haven't heard anything. Did they forget about me, lose interest, or does it just take time?
Anyone else have the same experience?
lol -- okay, disappointing, but helpful to know.
