So...

How many people have a horse in this race for 2019?

What script did you enter and what are your hopes or expectations?

I entered a script called Shaka, a historical drama. I'm hoping for at least a semi-final spot but the dreamer in me hopes it makes the top 3 in the historical category, fingers crossed.

Anyway... Quarter-finalists announced 15th July   I'll update this thread then.

I threw a drama called The Rising into the mix.  Didn't get very many reads on here; figured the subject matter turned a lot of people off.  Expectations?  This is strictly a hobby for me... throw it at the wall, see if anything sticks.

Good Luck, I'll keep an eye out for it in the quarters.

I've got Cyborn in there but I'm not as confident as I was with The Nearscape, which got through to the semis last year. Plus it's an earlier draft which has a few issues.

Cyborn so far has reached 4 quarter finals (but no further in those comps) and I found out today it is in the Semi-Finals of the Nashville Screenwriting Contest but it's not performing as well in competition as a whole compared to Nearscape.

At this stage I'll be happy if it gets to the  quarter finals - at least then it will be consistent.

Iíve got two. A feature - Christmas, and a short - Close To Sunset. Both have most excellent feedback/coverage, so... Why not? Hoping for the semis, of course and a little recognition never hurt.

Reading it now. Like the first act a lot. A nice brooding, slow burn of a set up. Curious to see where this goes.

I put in two features (Who Wants to Be a Princess? and Glass House) and a short (the Timmy trilogy as a single entity). That was way back in February, so it's no longer the latest and greatest draft for Princess.

Good luck everyone, hope to see some SS titles in the quaters and beyond!

I don't like these things... they piss me off. Being a finalist means very little. Winning gets some cash, but it would be better if there was a definite production planned at the end. Good luck to those that enter.

Winning actually means quite a lot and can definitely make big things happen. Other than that, I pretty much agree with you. Although, I had a script be QF and the producers used that when seeking funding. Even though it was just QF, the competition was one of the biggest ones so it carried some weight. Not much maybe, but it meant that the script had at least been through some vetting first.

I'd be leery of a production company willing to make a feature without even knowing the genre or budget requirements in advance... or I'd highly suspect they would unfairly shade the rankings toward exactly the kind of film they wanted to make anyway.

That actually happened to me once. I had a short entered into a competition that promised production to the Grand Prize Winner. My script won and I was announced as winner of the competition, but a script that placed sixth or so was the GPW!!! What the hell. Several people contacted them and asked why my script didn't win that prize and were told that they didn't think it was the right fit for them and wouldn't play well on the festival circuit because it was a Christmas script while they thought the one they picked instead had a much better chance. That was the last time I entered a comp in many years. Don was nice enough though to give me a SS mug though. But yes, they will chose winner by how well it fits their plans, not by quality of script.

I entered my TV series drama Bounty into the mix. Finished in the finals of a couple of other contests, which got me some calls with a couple of managers. First time to enter Page, so not expecting a lot. Maybe to make semis would be nice, but if not, that is okay too.

The version on this site is maybe the first or second draft. The version entered is maybe the twentieth draft and is almost the polar opposite of the original version. I guess there is something to this rewriting thing after all.

Looks like Timmy made it in the short-film category. Way to go, you plucky android!

Neither feature made it to the quarters, which is disappointing but not exactly unexpected.

So if my little Excel program isnít lying to me, there were 2013 quarterfinalists. That represents roughly 10% of all entries, so over 20,000 people entered.  Thatís a massive number and you wonder how they even got enough readers for all those scripts. Still, not complaining.

If Iím not mistaken, at one point, they organized the list via genre. They should just stick with it. Lol. Having everything jumbled together is so confusing. Anyway congrats and good luck in moving forward.

Ah, no.  It did not.  I think the subject matter for that script does me in, and will keep doing me in.  I'll come back to it at some point, try to address its problems.  Finishing up the first draft of a sci-fi script now.  Maybe I'll have better luck in that genre.  Who knows...

Michael, I was reading some of it the other day and it's a fine script and you're a bloody good writer, so don't despair.

Look forward to reading some of your sci-fi. I hope you'll post it on SS.

Don't fret too much - the way the contest is set up, it could have just been a single script reader who couldn't relate to your entry and so it didn't progress.

I think it is lying to you - I was curious so I popped it into excel and it tells me there are just under 1,000 quarter-finalists

Timmy was a Writerís Tournament entry from last year (after significant fixes).

With Seanís new format this time around, I think SS will be able to crush it in the short-film category next year

The readers are little better than slaves. If I was one of them, there would be a lot of page one binnings.

The readers are required to give ten separate 1-10 scores on each script, so thereís no way to bail and give an honest score (assuming that all the scores are actually honest).

Page also claims to only send a script to a reader interested in that genre and topic... which means that getting too cutesy with a logline can doom your chances.

Paying somebody peanuts doesn't inspire honesty. You'd expect a reader to take three hours, at least, digesting your script. That, to me, is half a day's work. No way could I afford to do that. I'd have to get a real job. The readers in the early stages are all shite. Barely out of nappies, some of them.

So, I paid for coverage on the two features that didn't advance, and it did a decent job of filling in the spaces between all the great feedback I got here.

For Who Wants to Be a Princess?, it was almost point-for-point the revisions I'd made since the submission date. Thanks, khamanna and colkurtz8, your feedback on that draft was spot-on. Had it scored better and survived to the semifinals, all of those requested changes would have been in there.

Using the Princess stuff as a benchmark, it gives me some confidence that the guy (the attached bio used "he") who wrote about Glass House knows what he's talking about.

  • First, he compared it directly to "Night Gallery," which was Sean's prototype in the 7WC.
  • Second, the technical advice is obvious to me in hindsight (a lot of the female characters do sound alike).
  • Third, the stuff about horror tropes probably went unsaid here because it's common knowledge among horror writers but only clear to me in hindsight. A lot of the victims in Glass House were innocent, which makes this read more like a bunch of "Criminal Minds" episodes than a horror anthology. Apparently, horror victims are supposed to "have it coming" even if the punishment is way out of proportion.

He said, "this felt like an 80s kind of potboiler". I don't know what that means (the only horror movie I saw in the 80s was Alien), but my guess is he wants me to relate the conflicts to contemporary society. If so, that was a goal for re-writes anyway.

His favorite villain in the story was the Teetotaler while the SS-verse seemed to like Liz. What they have in common is that their victims had each done something wrong according to the villain's clearly stated (though absurdly high) standards.

So, with feedback that rates as "not a waste of money," it's actually the best experience I've had with paid coverage.

How do you know the feedback isn't a waste of money? Unless the rewrite based on this guy's notes helps sell your script then it's a waste of money.

A potboiler is a piece of work you produce just to get paid (you're doing it just to 'keep the pot boiling') . Something you don't put your heart into.

Something I've never understood about contests... I'm not saying don't enter them - winning or finishing high on the list is definitely an accomplishment...

But why not also take the list of judges, do a half day of investigating to find their email addresses, and pitch them directly?

They're obviously the kind of industry people who will respond to new writers, if they're taking the time to judge a contest.

I meant that I found it useful. Whether it has a positive net-present-value in a strict dollar sense, thereís no way to know that yet.

Those judges arenít involved until a script has gotten past a couple rounds of low-level readers who sort out the worst entries (and a random fraction of the good entries). Direct contacts would have lower expected quality on average.

Yeah I get it, however the contest usually advertise who the judges are. What I'm saying is instead of joining the contest, or in addition to joining the contest, why not query the judge directly?

Glad you were happy with the notes.

I don't order the notes since I don't know who I am really ordering from. But if you are happy with what you got - good.

Dave, you're right, looks as if the bigger ones don't specify the judges - I thought I remembered them doing that - however some of other ones do:

I don't think that was the intention behind the note. A potboiler is slowly rising tension until it blows the lid off, like a boiling pot.

With the lower level judges - a lot depends on the taste of them. If you write horror (I doníT) and the judge just doesnít get horror - its a bad draw.

Read something recently on a guy with a script - said he entered it in thirty something contest over ten years. Never made it to second round. Finally got a chance to pitch through an unlikely connection. It sold to big producer immediately. I enter but they are not the end all, be all. Most entry level readers are like us - poor writers trying to eek out a few crumbs.

But does that mean this particular judge is using the term as defined this way?  Or does he/she mistakenly think it means something else?  Just curious.

I think Scar is right on this one. It was a 7WC with a challenging set of parameters, and well outside my comfort zone. The vignettes were basically ďthings Iíd find really disturbing if I saw them on screenĒ with approximately zero knowledge of what makes a horror movie tick.

The fact that it came across as merely soulless rather than a pisser is actually welcome news

So there were a lot of formulaic horror movies in the 80s?

Yes.

But I loved them.

In those days video rental existed. Which meant independent films could make a profit.

Blockbuster 's minimum order was 250, 000 copies of your film at around $5...so you could make real money getting your cliche rental out.

This one is my favorite out of all that I read from you. You must have rewrote a lot since I remember it at Page in previous years.

Well done, Dave. I didn't know you could enter the same scripts again. TLS deserves to get made.

Good luck to you too, Anon.

Yes, you too!

As for me - I certainly don't have eyes on the top prize - and if they gave that to a Pilot I'd be amazed. But a category win is one in ten now and hey - 2nd and 3rd might get the script/writer some industry attention. So here's hoping ...

They need to add an award for most times getting into the finals in the history of PAGE and give it to Dave.

I'm completely blanking on his name but there was a regular member here from way back that won the whole thing with a five page short script called Numbers. It's on this site, if you read it, you'll see why.

Good luck, by the way, and congrats to you both!

Yep, that was Matias Caruso, (like Warren said) for Carnival (feature length), 2014 Page GF winner.

He writes beautifully, short and long. Show off!

Oh, I thought he won for Numbers. He should have won for that. I'm gonna give those judges a talking to.

Now I really wanna read Carnival though.
