    Re: Austin 2019

    Bad reviews aren't wrong. They're just opinions along with good reviews. Simple as that.

    We can all enter the same script we wrote 3 years in a row in the same contests and I'd bet we'd do better in some contests and worse in others because the readers keep changing.

    Enjoy your successes. If you did well in 3 or 4 real contests yeah I think that means for sure you have a good script. And that's great. Doesn't have to get a perfect 100 on the test. If you get 80% good feedback than you know your script is solid.

      List is out.

      My entry whiffed. Yikes. Not even top 20%. This script got some rave reviews from readers, but the contests hate it. Ack. On to the next one.

        I am in the semis after years of not getting past the second round. Always a bridesmaid, this time a slightly higher ranking bridesmaid.

              Comedy feature. The same script is also on the semis for the Enderby Entertainment Award, which I just noticed today when they posted the list. Yay, two opportunities to be eliminated!

                  Made the 2nd round (Yiddish For Murder), but for some reason never received any kind of notification.



                  BTW, my last Black List review of that script was a 3 / 10.

                    If you made the list but didn't get the notification, might be you've turned off notifications from the Festival because of all the emails. Turned out that's what happened with me. They sent an email from a different address to let me know.

                      Anyone going this year? I went last year but was super anxious about the contest and didn't really "enjoy" myself as much as I'd like to. I got a free pass this year and am excited to check out some panels, hang out and see films (instead of talking myself out from under the bed every day last year)



                      Hope to see some DD'ers there!

                        I'm going. Staying at the Aloft. Would love to meet up at the Driskill. I'll PM you my cell, text me and I'd love to meet you and hear about the progress on your script's progress. You won last year, right? Or was that Nicholl?

                            Uh oh... HOT SHOT alert! Ha! J/K. Congrats!

                            Curious, were you signed previous to this. Got signed after it. What's your story?

                            Wish I was going, I have a buddy out there...
                            Bruh, fukkin *smooches*! Feel me? Ha!

                                Haha, thanks! I got signed after w/UTA and later Gotham for mgmt. I'm still not in the union so I still have my reps. I optioned a feature (not the winning script) and am working on getting a tv show going. I don't live in LA but the possibility has been floating around - I'm happy with my life here in MN and would prefer to stay here with my family /friends/home/animals but I understand if I get staffed I'd have to go. My last year has been crazy and surreal.
