If you’re a regular reader of Script magazine, you know what a wonderful resource it can be. I was flipping through the most current issue and I was happy to see one of my friends featured on the back page as a Final Draft success story.
I’m always happy to celebrate someone’s victory. Says Jeff in his email to me:
Thanks again for your help with THE CONFESSION OF LIZZIE BORDEN. Things are going in the right direction with my screenwriting career. In July I got signed by Trancas Films’talent division. They really liked both INCURABLE and THE CONFESSION OF LIZZIE BORDEN and signed me.
LIZZIE is currently with some very top people in Hollywood, and by all appearances, they seem quite interested in it. So we’ll see what happens. Show biz is tricky, to say the least. And I won’t count on anything ’til film is running through the camera! But it’s all positive really and Trancas is very enthusiastic.
Two other bits of good news: LIZZIE was a top five finalist in The Great Lakes Film Festival this past month. And INCURABLE is currently one of five finalists in the Eerie Horror Film Festival. I only entered a handful of contests. And it was nice to see something come out of it for both.
In the meantime, I am working on two more scripts that I hope to have done by the end of October/November. It’s been an exciting year and I am in it to stay, having left advertising to make a full go of this. The Script magazine article was very nice and hopefully will lead to some things as well.
