Semis announced today:
Congrats on making the semis Stephen!
Congrats Stephen. Kicking butt!
MAJOR congrats to Stephen -- HORROR COMIC is through to the finals -- one of only 10 left out of 650 entries. Way to rock it, SH!
Thanks! An honor to make it this far. Been a good ride with that script.
Wow - great news Stephen!
Hey, congrats Stephen!
Good work, Stephen, and good luck!
Is it unprofessional to say I recognize a couple or a few names here on Champion Qf list that will be out in two days.
If not, I won't.
Follow up on this one: I opted for the cash equivalent on most of the prizes. Received that today which was nice.
Julie and her business partner have been in contact with me on a regular basis. They are sending the brand new/much improved draft of HORROR COMIC out to a few agents/managers. (Their list of contacts, btw, available to anyone who scores a 'consider' is on The Script Department website.)
Thought Irin had an excellent idea asking people what contests lead to script requests and further results. Will keep you posted on my progress.
Thanks to everyone for the "congrats" I received. Best of luck this contest season!
Congrats again and thanks for the useful update.
Thanks - I like this new sharing of how the contests are helping (or not helping).
Got a follow-up email from Silver today and got them info on the script. They are sending it to several manager/producers and told me it would be a few weeks. Lots of scripts out there (or so I hear).
BTW, The Script Department forwards scripts (with author approval) that receive "consider" from coverage. Anyone can submit a script to them for consideration. The notes are helpful and turnaround time is reasonable/price worth it. Save this for advanced drafts after you've nagged all your friends, family, writing group contacts.
