Not sure if this is the right thread, but who cares, the Grieving Spell WON, the...


...short script competition. BOOYAH  ;D

I'm not sure how big a thing this is, it doesn't seem like a Page or Bluecat, but i'm still buzzing.

Link is;

Now, you can't say this isn't a Simply Scripts generated success - straight out of the One week Challenge only a few months ago. Thanks Don.

I saw the deadline for the LFA, decided to focus on getting a new version written and take a punt on a  last minute entry.

I will post the latest version tonight and attach to my signature link.

Thanks to all those that read. All the comments were taken on board.

UPDATE 5th may

Pleased to say The Grieving Spell took third place in the Honolulu Film Awards Screenplay Competition

Hey Bill,

Congrats on the win! It's nice when your hard work pays off, isn't it? I checked the original OWC posts and was happy to see that mine was favorable! Some might say I have good taste! Don't tell anyone though.

Congrats again! Great job!

Just giving this a bump, rather than start a new thread, to let folk know...

The Grieving Spell just took third place in the Honolulu Film Awards Screenplay Competition  :D :D :D

It may not be the Nicholls but it's always nice to place.
