Quoted from MarkRenshaw


I got to the Finals of Reel in 2015 for a short script and ended up with a Top Pick award. The organisers contacted me to say they would be sending my script out to 100 production companies. I asked them to send me a copy of the cover letter so I'd have a template I could use for my own queries, which they agreed to but they never did and I didn't get a single query email from anyone. I don't know if this means they didn't do it or the 100 production companies all passed on my script but I've not entered since.



- Yeah, I remember they deducted points for not using FADE IN: at the beginning. I knew then I'd backed the wrong horse, so to speak. That is pretty demoralising no one got back to you. Lets hope, in a way, they didn't send it out   Annoying they wouldn't share their the cover letter template either, if it did exist. Anyway, congrats on getting where you did in the comp. Is the script on here?

Surprisingly yes there is! It's an old draft but valid enough:

http://www.simplyscripts.com/scripts/AutomaticDrive.pdf

I've since updated it and incorporated it into a one hour pilot episode for a TV series I'm developing which I've just started entering into competitions. It reached the semi-finals of Cinequest so I'm hoping it will do well.

- Yep, I remember reading that and liking it, clever idea. I think I said it could only be realised as an animation, live action would be infeasible. I can see how it would do good in competitions though, going primarily on concept. It could well be the future too, scary.

Reel is definitely a joke. Although the reader notes seem genuine enough my first feature got second place and the prize money was only just over the entry fee.
