    Re: Situation Comedy

    Good! I wrote to them yesterday about how they absolutely needed to let people know what was up, because of all the confusion. I got emails from people who Googled my blog and started asking me, since I made it to the second round, whether I'd heard anything or not after that.

    Great news--let me go look. I'd been told previously that the cutoff for the second round was Nov. 12th, so...let's see what happens next, then.

    Situation Comedy

    Has anyone seen the Bravo website! They have increased the number of semi-finalists from five to ten...due to the large number of submissions.

    I also heard that nothing has been "finalized" until it is posted on their website.

    Has anyone else heard anything?

    Re: References

    They didn't acknowledge my initial entry, just that they'd gotten the video, etc., when I made the 2nd round. I gather they had 'way too many entries to actually respond to them all individually--but a list of folks who were moving on might've helped quell some of the doubts and distress. I'm watching this thread just to see how many different experiences we'll all have from here on. On the one hand, they've been very conscientious, letting us know what to send in next, calling to make sure, all that--I was impressed. But, then on the other, I've now seen that there are lots of people still trying to figure out what's up. Has to be because it's their first time trying this, and they were probably totally not ready for the big deluge. If the figures are true...whoa, baby...

    Re: References

    I never even got notification that they ever received my contest entry.

    References

    All of this sounds familiar save the "references" request. But I did receive an email from...I forget the guy's name...on October 22 saying they'd received everything they had to have so...who knows?! I'm hearing soooo many different things from so many different sources that I'll just hang out and wait for November 12th. Or...whatever.

    Nice to be in Round Two, but...Wow. I'm so sorry it's such a confusing process for everyone, though, and causing such angst.

    The "2" was obviously out of sympathy

    I can't believe my wonderful script wound up on some lowly receptionist's desk.

    Judging Criteria

    This is what's listed on the Bravo website: characters, dialogue, plot, humor, and originality - I'm pretty sure that's how the readers graded the scripts out.

    Grading?

    Do you remember the five categories they used to grade the scripts?

    Round 3 "Quarter Finalist"

    Hello everyone. I've made it into Round 3 as a "Quarter Finalist" and wanted to share what my experience has been so far. I actually haven't been searching any of the message boards til yesterday. I just posted something to %%WORD30%@ blog so if anyone reads that, it's me.

    I had made my script submission about a week before the deadline. On Thursday, October 14th, late in the day, I received a call from "Amy" who informed me that I was in Round 2. I live in LA now but was actually in Vegas and she said that they would e-mail me the Round 2 forms and that I needed to put together the three minute video and have it back to them by the following Tuesday. I shot the video and walked it into their offices (Riverside & Coldwater Canyon in Sherman Oaks) that Monday.

    Just as an aside, on the receptionist's desk was a script that had the "Situation Comedy" cover sheet on it. It looked like a reader had graded it. There were five categories and there were four 1's and one 2. I believe 5 is the best score. The comment on the script was something like "dialog barely passable".

    Late in the day on Friday, October 22nd, I got a call from Phillip (he's listed as the contest coordinator) and Jeff (position unknown) telling me that I had made it into Round 3 and that there was an extensive questionnaire that I needed to fill out and have back to them by Monday, October 25th.

    The questionnaire was from a firm "Edward Myers & Associates" and asked things like "Have I ever appeared in a porn movie?", "Do I use recreational drugs", "Have I ever had a temporary restraining order filed against me", etc, etc. The form ran about 20 pages or so.

    Again, I walked it into their offices on Monday. Yesterday, they contacted me again and said they had forgotten to ask for five professional and five personal references - they simply needed names and phone numbers.

    So here I am. I have my own theories on what's happening right now but it's pretty much out of my control until/if I make it to Round 4. Then it'll be up to me sell the script and myself.

    Hope this helps clear up where they are in the process.

    After consulting the crystal ball on this "situation" I had predicted that Bravo received much more than they had planned on and was doing their best to juggle this difficult problem.

    Now stop sticking pins in those Bravo voodoo dolls and take them off the fire. You wouldn't want to manifest bad mojo right before they select your pilot...

    It costs a person nothing to believe...
