    I had good results in the way of being introduced to various mentors (dd's girlingray being the most important of course).

    Had a few requests from producers and managers, but that's about it. Final Draft did everything that they claimed they would as far as promoting me. I think I just got in on a dead year with a script that wasn't particularly marketable.

    They have a new contest director now so it is hard to say what will happen with this next group.

    Congrats to all who advanced.

    Yeah my email said the same. Anyone in the QF's and NOT receive an email like that?

    Website now changed to this ...

    " Look for the top-35 to be announced on Monday, August 30th, the top-10 in early September, and the top-5 in mid-September."

    The email implied the next round, after the impending announcement, would be the top 10.

    It said I made the semis and that the top ten would be announced early Sept.

    My email said that my script made the semifinals and that the announcement would be made "tomorrow" (Tuesday).

    I received the email on Monday, too. Hopefully they'll get it straightened out soon.

    Did any other QFs receive the email KatCas and I got announcing the SFs? I have a hard time believing a contest that has historically had 20 SFs would suddenly expand that to over 200. But stranger things have happened. Oh well. What shall be shall be.

    Maybe this should now go in the Conspiracy Theory thread, something's going on ....

    I placed in a contest like that once. First they called us quarterfinalists, and then they decided they wanted to call us semifinalists. Hey, that was fine with me. I wouldn't have liked it if it was the other way around.

    I think Big Break is under new management and they haven't decided how they want to do things yet. But you'd think they could get the date right. The website says top 25 will be posted on Monday, August 27. Isn't today Friday the 27th?

    Hmm, this is very odd. I also got that email Monday which stated the results of the semis would be on their site the next day, and there's still no change ... they've still got all the quarterfinalists listed and those dates that seem to be from a previous year.

    I emailed them but haven't got a response yet. Anyone else have more info?
