Hearty congratulations, MovieByters!
Congratulations, guys. MBers are tearing it up out there.
Hope you get lots of reads. Great job!
That's fantastic. Hope you gets lots of Reads.
Thanks and congrats Stephen!
Congrats Irin! You as well Stephen! Awesome news :)
Good thing I didn't enter in June. I wouldn't have stood a chance.
I second Eric's post. ;-)
Congratulations, Irin, Stephen et al! That's fabulous news.
Congrats. Irin and Stephen.
Congrats! That's great to hear.
Irin, I'm just laughing at the concept. Wish I'd have thought of it. Congrats.
But it's a drama! (Thanks Michael).
Hey, Irin, I bet the members of "Octarane" in New Jersey could play the band members; they played together in the basement in the 1980s and actually reformed last year! Now they're playing bar gigs! Anyhow, way to go! (BTW, when are you going to become a screenwriting guru?)
That sounds like a documentary waiting to happen. Do you know if they're any good?
I tell my wife I'm a screenwriting guru every day, but she doesn't believe me.
Congratulations Irin, great news -- definitely high concept and should get many reads at the very least.
Congratulations to Stephen as well.
Congratulations Irin. Happy for you man. My second reaction was wow, glad I didn't enter in June! But, now that I think about it, it would have made for a good excuse. Hard to win against you and Hoover. Also read on Int Tip that you've signed with a manager and have an option you're considering. Hope the momentum continues for you. Continued success ...
Thanks Julie. Yes, my fingers are crossed on the option. We'll see what happens...
Is anyone else still waiting on feedback from their June entry?
I am. It should hopefully be coming soon.
Congrats to all winners in Script Savvy. I'd love to read your winning scripts. You too, Stephen Hoover since you wrote a Western. I'd love to read your winning script, `Buried South of Galatians' and naturally, you're all free to read one of mine. THANKS.
If you're still waiting, perhaps drop them a message. I recieved mine a few hours before the results were announced on the 2nd.
While I'm here, let me say for the record - kudos to Irin and Stephen. I can find some solace in the fact I lost out to you two.
My script is posted on Circalit.com. It's a peer review site. You can get reads from others there. Good luck!
I emailed them yesterday, and haven't heard anything back since.
