Slamdance script news
The next cut will be for the top 50 scripts (the semifinalists).
I admit I"m a little concerned about jinxing this. But the news pleased me, so I felt like posting it. I haven't entered as many contests in the past couple of years because I've been focused on the film festival circuit with my film.
And, in fact, because I am planning on making ENDINGS myself, I haven't really focused on script competitions too much. I did enter it in a few, with some mixed results (in part because I entered earlier drafts in some competitions and later ones in others).
I entered it in Slamdance because the script is a little on the edgy side, and Slamdance sort of likes edgier stuff (know your audience). And one of my previous scripts was a semifinalist and in the top 20 overall several years ago, so I have a soft spot for any competition that has liked my stuff in the past (actually, it's more like "accolade crack" -- once you get a little, you keep wanting more).
Anyway, here's hoping ENDINGS makes it to the top 50 and beyond...
