If you will recall, this is the client who gave me the bottle of Dom Perignon to celebrate her finishing her script. As you will recall, I applaud that sort of behavior!
She just emailed me this… I am so proud of the amazing work she’s done and happy to have played a small part by giving her notes.
Nice email to get.
Congratulations! You have advanced into the Semifinal Round of the 2013 Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting. Your script is one of only 149 entries to advance from the Quarterfinal Round.
During the Semifinals, four Academy members, drawn from a variety of branches, will read your script. Over the past half dozen years about ten Semifinalists have progressed into the Finals; the number will be similar this year.
