Any keepers yet? max May 4, 2007 at 2:18 am Oh there is no telling yet. This is just the beginning. Vanessa May 4, 2007 at 2:22 am ‘Scuse me if I appear a bit thick, but are you judging? I used to be asked to judge ‘Battle of the Bands’ competitions quite often and I always found it a slightly discomforting task. Differing opinions, internal and external conflict and politics, the losers looking at you reproachfully and occasionally showering you with abuse. Ahh, the joy of power and responsibility. Hah. max May 4, 2007 at 2:31 am I read and evaluate scripts for the competition. Just me liking a script is not enough for it to win though. The scripts go through a lot of reads, evaluations, and several rounds before they get to the final round, and there are only ten finalists, and only five of those may be granted fellowships. It is a long arduous process. A.J. Valliant May 4, 2007 at 12:04 pm Do they reward you for reading, or is it done from the good of your heart? Vanessa May 4, 2007 at 12:31 pm If she was injuring herself reading scripts for free, I’d be going for worker’s comp in a big way. Then again, I do live in Australia….. Tommy May 4, 2007 at 2:37 pm Do you ever just skim over the titles and toss aside the ones you don’t like? Anita Marie May 4, 2007 at 4:17 pm You’re brave Max! I wouldn’t have ‘stopped by’ I’d have used one of those robots with the cameras to cruise around before going in. amm in awe max May 4, 2007 at 5:03 pm I won this competition in 1994 and it did a great deal for me. It is a good cause. Tommy, if I felt that way about it, I would have no business reading for it. Stiletto May 4, 2007 at 7:04 pm You guys are are in Nicholl frenzy, we over here in DC are in Beltway Madam frenzy. Don’t know who needs more luck. max May 5, 2007 at 6:41 am Well, people named on Nicholl lists are happy about it and also there are fellowships and fun award ceremonies. It is a small distinction, sure, but I do not think that happens with Beltway Madam frenzy. Stiletto May 6, 2007 at 5:13 pm Yeah ours might be a larger distinction in the media but there are no happy campers and the only reward is not ending up in the slammer! max May 6, 2007 at 6:38 pm Nicholl is more fun. Stiletto May 6, 2007 at 7:44 pm Oh I believe you! Pingback: photo day yay! « celluloid blonde Leave a ReplyYour email address will not be published.
