  • HBO Access

    Anyone else trying to upload the application for this (through Film Freeway)?

    I've tried three times and the little upload wheel just keeps spinning when I hit "add to cart and check out." I tried just "add to cart" without success. Is there a trick to this? Or is it just impossible because the application period is too short and the website is overwhelmed?

    Haven't looked into it yet (recovering from some medical stuff here - doing better but some days I've only got enough energy for work and a bite of dinner).

    I did search for #HBOaccess on Twitter. It seems to be much less of a debacle, compared to last time.

      I think the 4-day window is the problem. There are probably thousands of writers trying to upload applications at once. I'll try again tomorrow. Or not.

        I had no issues when uploading. The craziness from two years ago shouldn't be an issue this time around since it's being handled through Film Freeway but I'm sure the 4 day window still stresses their servers a bit. Maybe try a different browser?

        Hope you get through today with no problem!

          I had no problems submitting this evening. Hope it worked out for you.

            Managed to apply, but my essays were dashed off and I don't remember them asking for a bio, only for a list of other awards won. So perhaps I overlooked something.

            Either way, I'm okay with it. My medical stuff has been leaving me with almost no energy to spare after I put in my day at work. Getting some quality rewrites done on my pilot this week and waking up early enough to submit at all was a solid check in the 'win' column, for now.

              You could do a bio or resume. Your choice.

                Was able to finally upload it but like Willoughby I dashed off the essays. I had a houseguest and was trying to do too much at once. I wish I had taken the time prior to March 1 to find out what the application would require, but I didn't. Oh well. My bad. At least it was free.

                  They didn't post the essay questions ahead of time, so no worries.
