It finally arrived! My Award of Merit from the Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood finally arrived. It's currently hanging on my office wall now. Framed. Not quite laminated, but close enough.
I also found that, unfortunately, Summons was NOT picked up as a Finalist with the Austin Revolution film festival, but just making Semi Finalist is more than enough for me. Another competition rejected my script, however it came with really good useful notes, which I've been looking forward to for a while now. Finally, a professional screenwriter or producer has read it and gave me feedback. Cliffnotes version, they liked the idea, characters, some details. There was one big flaw that was easily changed and I have already resubmitted it for a second shot. Fingers crossed that goes a little farther this go around.
Next up, I'm about halfway done with my feature screenplay I've been working on for the last two weeks or so. I'm excited for how that's developing. But... before I finish that, I'm taking a little detour to work on another project.
I've teamed up with someone to work on another series pilot. It's political, which isn't really something I'd normally go for, at all, but we both bring different aspects to the table and it could compliment well for the story. Another new learning experience every minute. I'm kind of getting an idea of what it would be like to work in a writers room, I think, if I were ever to work in one for a show. That is, if luck is on my side. ;)
Rest assured, I stocked up on my caffiene supply, as well as the half & half. I should be ok for the duration of the project. I may need to got to bed early tonight though. Phew! Typing at night are the most productive because the kids are asleep. Ha! I'm not kidding. Parents, you all understand.
