This is a totally self-serving request ... in a couple of weeks, there is a festival in The Big AppleĀ® which has a live reading of short screenplays ... TAA DAA! And I seem to be in the Official Selection! 

It's called BROWNFISH ... if anyone is going, I'd love a first hand account.  The live readings are down near the Village, I think.

How very cool Scarlet! Congratulations!  Sadly it's a little too far away for me to attend but I still think it's pretty awesome!

Tell me about it ... I'm half a world away! 

I guess you've got to be in it to win it ... "it's an honour just to be nominated!"

Oh wow - congrats SS.  Shame they didn't send you a ticket to attend though (as if !)

Congratulations, SS! Sounds like an interesting fest. I'm in Texas, but will be rooting for you in spirit.

No free air fares, but they did give me a full festival pass which I gave to a film maker colleague who is in New York that weekend. You should check out the website and see if any of the other short screenplays are from NYCMMM tragics ... I have no idea who anyone really is.

Dunno ... it was a Short Screenplay entry here ... written more for reading that speaking aloud.  I've never been to a live reading of a screenplay, so I'm not sure how they treat the Big Print.  It's like reciting a recipe at a cooking competition ... it relies on delivery and the imagination of the audience.  Totally new experience.

Here is the short screenplay again if anyone is interested ...

Stuart Creque is one of us too.  Unsure about the others.

Congratulations Scarlet!  What a thrill.
