Update: "Thaddeus Thackeray" makes TOP 10 in Creative Screenwriting's Unique Voices competition
The final winners of the 2020 Creative Screenwriting's Unique Voices Screenplay Competition have just been announced, and my screenplay "In the Footsteps of Thaddeus Thackeray" made the TOP 10 of the comedy selections.
Again, I'm always happy to see that there are at least a few people out there who enjoy my work, and this script in particular has been on Coverfly's RED LIST for a number of months now. I'm not holding my breath for anything to come of it...but if anyone is interested in giving it a look, let me know.
From the Creative Screenwriting website:
We have teamed up with several creative partners looking for Features and TV Pilots with unique voices and original stories. Our goal with this contest is to discover great writers then connect their authentic stories to those creative partners, and we are looking for the best writing in all of these genres: Action/Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Family/Holiday/Young Adult, Mystery/Crime, Historical/Biopic, Horror/Thriller, Sci-Fi/ Fantasy, Sports and Western.
We are genuinely looking for your unique perspective - with special consideration for Diversity, LGBTQ, Sports, Young Adult, Female Thrillers, Kaufman-esque Mind-Benders and original Holiday Stories, but there really is no limitation. Our focus is to build a slate of talented writers underrepresented in Hollywood today.
