Congrats, Acton, for making the semis with "Widow's Island" :)

Author: Acton Cordell Posted: 06/28/08 02:32 AM

Thanks, Jean. If only the semis qualified for consideration as category winners. But this is still good news.

Good job Acton! Keep up the good work.

Got into the finals with Common Ground. Thrilled. And, as so often happens on this board, yet another satisfied Barb Doyon customer. Anybody else going to the Moondance festival?

Congratulations Mary! That's great Common Ground is in the finals. That's a tough competition.

Good luck moving on up.

Congrats, Mary!

I attended the last two Moondance ceremonies when they were held in LA (bridesmaid in both!!) I won't be attending this year as I didn't enter and they are held I believe in Colorado. But good luck to you! Keep us posted please. :)

Robert, Jean, many thanks! I am really looking forward to going to the fest - have heard good things about it. Happy just to make it to the finals, though it would be lovely to walk out with a win.;) Jean, how did you like the festival? I guess since you went twice, it must not have been terrible...

Author: Jean Hunter Posted: 07/03/08 02:42 PM

Mary, the first year I went (two years ago) the ceremony was held at a posh Bev Hills restaurant/lounge and it was a blast. The event was hosted by George Lopez and needless to say he was beyond hysterical. Guest of honor (receiving a recognition award) was Phyllis Diller and I didn't think I had any laughs left in me after George, but I was laughing so hard I was nearly in tears. Even though my two scripts didn't win, just seeing them was a winning sitation for me.

The 2nd time I went (last year) they unfortunately held the event at a theatre in Universal City's City Walk. I say unfortunate as the event started late, the lighting and audio was poor and very few attended compared to the previous year. Robert Culp was one of the awards presenters. I wish they had stayed with the place in Bev Hills. That was a classy affair.

I believe the previous years they held the festival in Colorado, these were the two experimental years in LA.

Good luck to you - keep us posted. :)

Well...got the email this AM - didn't win, but am still very happy to be a finalist, as this is my first screenplay. I am definitely going to the festival at the end of August. The synopses of the films they are showing look really great, and I think it will be fun to meet other writer/producers, as that's the direction I'm headed. Besides, Colorado is gorgeous in the summer! Anyone else from these boards planning to attend?

Author: Nathan Goldman Posted: 08/06/08 11:57 AM

Mary, you have every right to be proud. Keep up the great work!

Author: Jean Hunter Posted: 08/06/08 01:15 PM

Mary, you gave it your best shot.

Have fun in Colorado and make contacts!! :)

Author: Mary Rodgers Posted: 08/06/08 01:46 PM

Thanks all - you guys are so supportive. So glad I found this board. Best of luck to the rest of you as you await the final results from other competitions!
