2023 PRESS || NEWS || UPDATES || COMPETITIONS
I think we get more good news around here than just competition news and needed a place to share news, press, cool project updates —
Share the news and announcements here. Yay!
AND competition news but not JUST competition news.
I'm getting ready to put out the Jan newsletter, anyone have any news I should be including?
(Things got jumbled up during the move I have lost track of most news so do not worry you are repeating yourself if you have already posted something, that is flat gone from my head at the moment post it again!)
Happy New Year!
Happy new year and no new news from me. Dropped off of social media so not as in touch as I used to be.
Congrats on the move Max. Where did you end up?
I signed up for First 30 Pages to start next week with my EDDY JEAN feature thriller. And I signed up to consult with Max on the script in February. So excited to work on this with Max!!!! The story is inspired by a murder in Southeast Austin.
For the newsletter:
My newest one-hour TV pilot, JAZLYN'S SIGHT, got a double recommend from Stage 32. https://www.stage32.com/lounge/screenwriting/Congratulations-to-our-Double-Recommend-Writers
Della and I wrote a 30 minute sitcom pilot, AREA 50, which has already received a few awards. A couple of our favorites:
Finalist with StoryPros. http://www.storypros.com/16thISCFinalists.html
Official Selection at Austin Revolution (one of Della and my favorites!), in running for top scripts. https://www.austinrevolution.com/p/awards/11th-2023-selected-screenplays
With trepidation.... Towanda is ready to pick on me as she sends love to Max. I'm sure she'll join chat time.
@debiyaz Very cool news, Debi. I am so looking forward to having you in class and working with you in the consult on Eddy Jean.
Also, give Towanda mad love from me. Yay!
Happy New Year!
True Luck is a 100 Screenplays semifinalist. Inflection Points is a Richmond International Film Festival semifinalist. Neither moved further in these competitions. Both got early help from 5150, for which I'm grateful.
@peter Grat's on the placements, Peter.
There's a seat in 5150 with your name on it when you're ready to come back. Hug!
August may be difficult, but I'll take the risk. I'll claim the seat, with a July start, if that works.
@peter Nice! So I will be bringing you back for the month of July?
@peter Wonderful. I will bring you in now with a first official month back as July. Welcome back!
My feature romantic comedy, Power Couple, is a Script Pipeline Quarterfinalist. Only one in a hundred submissions made it this far.
