Yup, it would appear so. My new teen SF script E-DEN has just reached the semi-finals of the Table Read My Screenplay – London Competition, its third competition placing this year so far. Very pleased this script seems to be doing well (see below for its previous competition wins).
Crumbs! And possibly crikey! My 1-hour TV pilot script CHARLES DICKENS’S GHOST CLUB just got “bronze” in the Screencraft Pilot Launch TV Script Contest! The script – a kind of “Victorian Ghostbusters” affair with a female protagonist and (I’d like to think) a slightly “Whovian” vibe – took third place in a field of more than 1300 entries.
Gotta confess, I let out a girlish gasp of astonishment this morning when I learned that my 1-hour TV Pilot CHARLES DICKENS’S GHOST CLUB has made Top 10 in the Final Draft Big Break Screenwriting Competition. That’s top 1%. For a quirky, ultra-British, Victorian Ghostbusters-type show with a female protagonist? Who’d have thunk?
The semi-finalists in the Final Draft Big Break Screenwriting Competition have just been announced, and it seems that Mr Dickens and his ghostbusting chums are still holding their own in the 1-hour TV Pilot category. I’m so surprised, and deeply chuffed. I may have to indulge in a celebratory cup of tea and an extra biscuit. Possibly shortbread…
Came back from hols today to learn that my 1-hour TV spec pilot CHARLES DICKENS’S GHOST CLUB has just reached the quarter-finals of another writing competition – this time the Screencraft Pilot Launch TV Script Contest. Go Charlie!
My spec 1-hour pilot script CHARLES DICKENS’S GHOST CLUB has reached the quarter-finals of Final Draft’s Big Break Screenwriting Contest. Here it is, under Quarter Finalists Television – Hour Pilots. Really chuffed. It’s a slightly offbeat, very British, Victorian Ghostbusters type thing – striving for a BBC1 Saturday teatime vibe – and I really had no idea how it might be received in the US.
So far so good then…
