Australian director Mat King. It is in pre-production now and is being filmed
in Australia beginning on January 30, 2006.
I don't think this script would have been
requested for a read if it hadn't been for placing in your contest. So, thank
you, thank you, thank you! For giving this opportunity to screenwriters and
short scripts in particular. And thanks for putting the screenwriter first.
This is the only short I've written. I've written several features, and one of
those has been optioned twice now. I am looking for an agent now and I think
because of this short being produced, it will certainly help. This director
also is a pro and does quality work, so I couldn't have asked for a better
opportunity. Thanks again!!!
a lot of script contest winners that I have met from around the country
and your prizes blow everyone else away... I enjoyed the Expo and met a
Manager with Arpil Entertainment ....
He's currently reading my stuff.
