I'm working on something new. I was going to execute it as a feature, but a TV pilot for a 3-part miniseries may be the way to go.

From reading your website though, only the winners will be read by the producers on your list. I find this off-putting as it means I must first run the gauntlet of cheapo readers. Plus my idea is high concept and it going through those grubby hands isn't something I fancy.

Seems a rigmarole just to get a script in the hands of a producer. There's also a chance one of the cheapo readers could disregard my script just because their tiny mind was unable to fathom it. And I have to pay something like 30 quid for the privilege.

I'll definitely take the miniseries idea though, thanks for that.

I've just submitted my sci-fi TV pilot, The Nearscape. This got to the semi-finals of Cinequest (plus they gave me great feedback which helped me do a new draft) so I'm hoping that is a good sign.

I know what you are saying Dustin and I feel the same frustrations. With the big competitions like this one, there's thousands of entries. How do you know when the readers gets to yours, it's not the 30th they've read that day and has just had enough, or they don't get it for some reason...or a hundred other different things that could go wrong? One tiny moment in time could make or break your chances.  

Unfortunately, until I get a direct line to producers I have to pay and play the lottery like most aspiring writers.
