Re: Competition Entry Numbers?

I was thinking about this as well. My guess was that the ratio stayed the same. If there was 1 good script for every 10 before, then it remained like this regardless of the number of entries.

Good...

Re: Competition Entry Numbers?

ClintW is right, both were record-setting. In PAGE, the break down was around 2000 in each category. You compete for a prize in each category and then the grand prize is overall.

Pipeline had over...

Re: The Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition

Hernan, of course it's all what I gather from in front of the scenes. PAGE at least posts their basic criteria for advancement. Sundance lab also has an interesting system. Perhaps you're right about...

Re: Big Break & Scriptapalooza

Thanks both. I chose not to enter these two anyway. Info I gathered searching about them didn't seem to show much in the way of reps / getting produced, which is my larger goal.

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

Oh yeah, and I'm sure the WGA minimum is very respectable for a first timer.

The problem comes with being forced into blanket contracts. If you sell it independently of this kind of agreement, you...

Re: Imagine Impact X Netflix

I can only chime in about what I understand the language to mean. You will be paid the WGA minimum for the writing portion of the work (story, screenplay, one round of revisions, name credit, etc.)....

Re: The Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition

To be honest - no. They said it was a record-breaking year with over 10000 scripts. It's impossible to read and review that many in 15-20 days without a massive staff. It doesn't help that they don't...

Re: The Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition

Re: Page 2020

Yikes - a record-breaking year for number of entries at PAGE as well. 8295 (!) Anyone else enter? Which category? This seems so far like a really well-run competition.

Re: Legalities of submitting into competition

A bit off topic, Bono. :D But a solid plan! Thanks for the advice.

Re: Legalities of submitting into competition

I don't know am I going blind or crazy, but I just submitted my screenplay everywhere I intended to. I double checked the few places I was going to skip, and several of their indemnity clauses now...

Re: Legalities of submitting into competition

jmpowell - Very fair assessment as well. Understand your reasoning, and it's why I decided to submit to one of them despite an aversion to the indemnity.

Bono - Not trying to say my material is...

catcon, didn't want to rain on your other thread, but I also quickly looked through their terms and was not happy about several points, so I didn't even consider it. :|

Re: Nicholl 2020

That's cool. I really like the way the competition is run, seems fair all the way around. Did you win the fellowship or just make it as a finalist? Either way, congratulations, that's incredible.

Re: Legalities of submitting into competition

JoeBanks, cool thanks for chiming in. The very strong indemnity clauses don't worry you at all?

Re: Legalities of submitting into competition

finalact, really good that you read it all.

I did get a few private messages from people asking for my analysis of the competitions' terms.

Want to say upfront that I'm not a lawyer. I just work...

Legalities of submitting into competition

I have begun the process of submitting to various competitions for the first time ever. And I would just like to send a note of alarm that the legal text in some of them is strong enough to strip...

Re: Random film thread...

I didn't love Hail, Caesar!, but I did think it was underrated. Was a solid film. I watched AlphaGo, as mentioned here, and that was interesting. Thanks for the tip!

Re: Nicholl 2020

Good call and what my hope is. I'm sure that winning is luck of the draw. Quality + luck + politics, etc.

Re: Nicholl 2020

Do you think the percentage is so high?

I assumed having spent 2 years on my entry [AKA nowhere near a first draft] that it's already in the top 2000 or so, but I imagine the higher you get, the...

VirtuaVerse - video game

Four years in development, the first video game I've ever worked on was just released. A cyberpunk, point-and-click adventure for retro gaming fans.

Re: Nicholl 2020

Mine was confirmed at just around number 6700. I was in 8 hours before the deadline, so it was another busy year. Probably 7000 entries as was predicted.

Re: Nicholl 2020

Surprised that after a week it's still pending. They must've really gotten a lot of entries on the final day. :eek:
