I wanted to share a bit of good news with the SS family. My script “THE RIGHT TRACT” was selected to go to the semi-finals in the KAIROS screenwriting competition today. The finals will be held on the first part of February to determine the first, second and third place positions. The top three will be flown to Hollywood and presented to over 200 top executives in an award ceremony where $25000.00 will be given to the top winner, $15000.00 to second and $10,000.00 to third. Wish me luck.

Thanks guys.

AJR,  the script is a religious piece where a man dies and has to defend him self in heaven.

The scripts was posted here for a time but I asked Don to remove it after I received no feed back. The script however is at a web site I set up for it. If you would like to read it you can go to http://www.therighttract.com.

And thanks again for the kind words...

I haven't read your script yet, but I have read Jack T Chick's "This Was Your Life" Tract.  Excellent choice to base a script on.  Almost seems prophetic getting picked right in the wake of the Haiti tragedy.   Perhaps God will use your script in a mighty way.

Shawn,

Long time, my friend.

You have obviously spent time honing your craft and actively pursuing your dream - massive kudos on that alone.

The fact you are in with a serious shout of getting industry recognition, and crucially, eyes on your work is testament to your positive attitude and talent.

Best of luck, mate, and keep us all posted on how it develops.

Andrew

Man...
Thanks everyone for the great words of encouragement. I really mean it.
Screenrider, I don’t think I have had the pleasure of talking with you but based on your scripture, you seem very well versed in the word. As Mr. Chick and the tract goes, I have years of fond memories of this one. From the time I first read it to the moment I started to hand them out myself.
By the way, I have been in touch with the Chick group and have been getting some great feedback from them. My heart goes out to Haiti as well. So very tragic; all of our prayers should be focused on every soul crying out for help in that devastated region.

Ghostwriter, Thanks for the comments you did give me. In my earlier post I said no one replied. You did and thank you. Any scripts you would like me to read, just let me know.

Andrew, you are so right. Long time brother; How have you been? I see you are in Singapore now. You sir never fail to give the nicest words of encouragement. I really appreciate you. By the way, I would like to email you an idea I have been working on for my next feature and would like your thoughts on it. Thanks again Andrew. Take care.
Mr. Blonde, Thanks for the positive thoughts. Just getting far has me so very stoked. Thanks again.
Shawn…..><

I was informed that I did not make it to the final ten in the competition. That is so OK though. It was a great ride and I enjoyed going all the way to the semi-finals.

Thanks for the encouragement from all of you who responded.
