Re: Nicholl 2020

Unless it's changed, it's only when you reach the Finalists found (usually 10 scripts, give or take) that the extra documentation gets submitted so the committee can evaluate and discuss while they...

Re: Austin 2019 - Help Please

If it's your first, I'd encourage you to spring for the Producers badge since it does get you into more events (e.g. BBQ), most of which fall under into that "networking" category you mentioned.

Re: Nicholl 2019

You recite a lot of numbers and make some fairly sweeping statements, but I'd be curious to see this quote from Swicord if you have it at your fingertips. Otherwise, given that she's only been in...

Re: Austin 2018

Well, Wenonah... should I tell them or you?

Tell ya what... I won't spoil the surprise and I know you need some recovery time from the Austin weekend, so perhaps we can treat that question as a...

Re: Austin 2018

Great news, Wenonah.

I'll find you somewhere in the corner or just call out your name at the Driskill. If we don't meet up somewhere along the way at Austin, just know that I'll throw a big hissy...

Re: TV Pilot - on-spec arrangement w/producer -- question

Appreciate the feedback... I like both suggestions: (1) Possibly engaging with an attorney, (2) Talking candidly with the producer about my initial concern.

We've had fruitful meetings (albeit...

TV Pilot - on-spec arrangement w/producer -- question

I'm an unrepped writer who mostly cranks out original feature-length spec scripts. Recently, I've been discussing an on-spec arrangement with a NYC-based producer to write a TV pilot that he would...

Regarding Nicholl:
Not sure if they've changed the process since I was a Finalist so many years ago (~10), but if it's a matter of budget as opposed to logistics, they most likely will cover your air...

Re: Austin 2018

I just noticed that wenonah has her Nicholl Fellowship Finalist script (Horsehead Girls) advancing to the semi-finals at Austin in both Drama and Enberby categories (I think I got that right).

Re: Nicholl announcement went out today

Now you tell me. There was an old man, but he wasn't smoking a pipe. Otherwise, I might have actually won one of the Fellowships instead of just being a Finalist.

I really resisted the urge to...

Re: Why I Hate Script Contests And So Should You

"Opportunity" is the operative word here. That's really the best outcome for any of these competitions... none of us are looking for guarantees. That'd be silly and naive, wouldn't it?

So seize the...

Re: Why I Hate Script Contests And So Should You

Well, that's exciting news... to say the least. And if good things come out of it, you can start a new "Why I Love Script Contests and so Should You" thread.

Well done... I've heard (generally)...

Re: Variation on V.O. (is this correct?)

My concern (albeit a minor one) was the first few times I read through the script and stopping on...

Re: 2017 Launch Pad Pilot Competition

Re: Austin Post Mortem - anyone?

Re: Awards lunch at Austin worthwhile?

I guess I would echo most (if not all) of cvolante’s reasons for possibly attending.

I’ve been fortunate enough to be a two-time finalist at Austin (won a few years ago) so keep that context in mind...
