Wow! Congrats, Frederick! I watched the movie yesterday, and it is very well done. Generally, I get bored with contained settings and I avoid films like this, but I was very impressed with what NIGHTINGALE was able to accomplish. For those who haven't seen it - this is definitely worth checking out. For screenwriters, it is a great lesson in creating conflict in a contained setting. The acting is top notch. Looking forward to seeing more from you!
Thanks for the congrats though I'm hesitant to celebrate before it's "in the can" because I've been through this before to no avail. Just wanted Marjory to know someone out there is listening to her message
Great to hear and well-deserved, Paul! I read through the prizes and the best part is that they will be making a short version teaser short of the script with a guaranteed Richmond International Film festival premiere and Imdb credit. Super exciting!
Cheers to Marjory! An inspiration to us all. In part because of watching her fantastic Slamdance short, I wrote a short which then won a contest and now is being produced (at least so far, so good - casted, scouted, crew and props in place, and scheduled for shoot next month!). I couldn't agree with her more; shorts are a great way get credits as writer when getting started.
