So many Contests... Which one do Industry Insiders respect the most? CLICK HERE to find out!
Congratulations on the quarterfinals to Orlanda, Gene, Paul, Geoff, John, and any one else I missed! Great going against great competition!
Hey, everyone, that's fantastic! And Flo, congrats to you as well.
Orlanda, two scripts - wow! Double congrats to you, girl!
Best wishes to everyone moving up to the next notch :)
Whew! 'The Knuckleballer' made it! Congrats to all the quarterfinalists, and thanks to all the MBers here who are so supportive!
Yikes, Michael - missed your name (again?) Sorry - so many Moviebyters are making cuts I think for now on I'll just say "congrats everyone!" :)
Thanks to everyone
LOL I've a supernatural thriller and a drama in the same contest. Amazing!
The the best of great luck to all of us.
Congrats...let me guess, you all went to their workshops. Those of us who have day jobs get great feedback but no chance at bluecat which is strange since I took a bronze in Houston last year.
Also spotted Lou Yateem in there, with REINVENTING ETHAN. Very cool to see so many MBer's...
Kudos, one and all!
For what it's worth...I didn't attend one of their workshops...and Crazy Love made the cut.
I've vowed to keep changing the first word of the title until I get somewhere with it. Next it will be Resurrecting Ethan. They didn't like Replacing... very much last year so...
I like "Resurrecting..." has a nice ring to it. :)
Jean, you are a kind soul, and I can't believe you remembered me!!!! Thank you. Orlanda, girrrrl, you gonna be hard to beat;0)
At this point, it feels great to make it to quarterfinals, and whatever happens happens... but the money, oh, the money. Maybe we should start a thread called, "if I win the money." What would you do? Would you pay off debt? get a shack in the woods/by the beach/in the city for a few months to hunker down and write? travel?
Best wishes to all! Flo
p.s. I didn't attend any of the workshops, either. Most of them are offered in every other city besides LA. I took Evan Somers' classes at SMC.
Flo, that shack in the woods sounds fantastic to me, however I'm upgrading to a cabin as I want to at least be halfway civilized with running water and electricity!! Ahhh...we can dream, can't we?! :)
Not so tough, Flo. :-) There's still room for a couple more moviebyters to round out the 10 finalist.
Oh, on the money. LOL I'd hit some film festivals. For sure.
I haven't taken any BlueCat seminars. Actually, I'm just taking my very first screenwriting course right now with Hal Croasmun at Script4Sale. And loving it.
Good luck on the 23rd everyone
We are the music makers and the dreamers of dreams, Jean!
This is so exciting. What a talented lot you all are - congratulations! Fingers crossed that y'all continue to move up.
I know that I am a newby here....BUT...I made the Quarterfinals too...This was my first try at a contest....My script was "EL CUBANO"...good luck to all of you...
Congrats on making the quarters and good luck to all Moviebyters! :)
That's great, Dorothy! Another moviebyter on board :-)
Orlando...another researcher....that is the best part of writing...Congrats on BLUECAT....
I WROTE SOMETHING ON THE TOP, FRIENDS. I DID NOT NO HOW MANY OF MY FRIENDS GOT ON THE BLUECAT --
WELL NOW I SEE -- MANY OF MY FRIENDS GOT IT! I'M HAPPY FOR YOU PEOPLE, FRIENDS. WELL, SINCE HE IS SO MEAN TO ME, I AM GLAD I AM NOT ON IT. I WILL LOOK AT IT ALL AGAIN -- BLUECATS QUARTER.
Dorothy, I couldn't agree more. LOL Nothing short of a screenplay could make me want to learn astrophysics.
Orlando...Mine is SMART BOMBS...
Can you pop an A there on the end of my name instead of the O, Dorothy. ;-) I'm of the female persuasion.
LOL Putting my first and last name together does it all the time, O to O.
Sorry about the "O" not the "A"...that's what I get for reading without the glasses...
