All the way back in October 2015, I started the first round of a short screenwriting contest via NYC Midnight.
Each round allowed 48 hours to write a 5-page script based on an assigned genre, location, and object that had to be included at some point in the story.
Here’s a sample of my assignment parameters:
The competition wrapped up back in January and results were shared recently. I received a 7th place Honorable Mention, placing me in the top ten out of over 600 writers.
I’m proud of this achievement and now have three different short scripts I hope to produce in and around Columbus, OH over the next year. Which is a whole new level of “insane voluntary undertakings that will shorten my life”.
P.S. If you like just HAVE a bunch of extra cash and want to patronize the arts or something, maybe let me know…
