Re: Nicholl 2019

Wouldn’t it be awesome if Nicholl had genre categories like some of the other contests?

Since they have up to five winners, how about one fellowship winner in each category?

For example,

Re: Nicholl 2019

As I’m saying now for the third time. Nicholl gets not a dime from me. What you’re really saying is it bothers you when I speak the truth. If it’s not true, why does it bother you enough to respond?...

Re: Nicholl 2019

Thank you for chiming in here. Although I understand this sentiment, it is maddeningly frustrating because how can there be a discrepancy between best screenplay and best screenwriter?

Re: Nicholl 2019

I did not denigrate Nicholl’s position. I simply clarified that which is highly misleading. They are often billed as the best screenwriting contest, but in reality actual screenwriting craft is not...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

Is it possible to have 'notes' remain open and visible throughout the script and appear in the Navigator like they do in Movie Magic Screenwriter?

Re: Black List question - Nicholl placement

The Nicholl is living on its past reputation for choosing the best scripts. Under current Director Robin Swicord it appears they have another, unspoken agenda. In her speech at this past year's...

Re: Black List table read of Balls Out

Re: HBO Launches Fellowship

Wow! that thing closed fast.

They didn't even give folks a chance to get home from work.

I think they grossly underestimated the huge number of white women out there trying to break in the biz. ;)

Re: Resending a script

After sending over the new draft, what are the chances you later find even more things that need to be fixed?

Sounds like rushing it is your normal procedure, might want to work on that.
