So I'm a little floored. Last summer I entered the Writers' Guild-sponsored Scriptapalooza Television Script competition, and yesterday I learned that my script, "The Vicious Circle," was picked by top agents etc. as one of the five finalists in the Original Pilot category, out of 843 script submissions by professional and non-professional writers. My script "The Vicious Circle," based on an oral history of the Chicago Mob in the sixties, is the very first script I've ever written for television. You can imagine how I feel.
Can anyone out there recommend or introduce me to a human film/television agent with Hollywood clout? I've got feature specs as well. One of them, a supernatural thriller entitled "Dibbuk," just got sensational feedback from Gordy Hoffman (brother of Philip Seymour Hoffman) who runs the Blue Cat Screenplay Competition. I entered it in Blue Cat's current competition, and Gordy's notes were so gushingly positive that they made my head spin. I made the tweaks I needed to make, and the script is going back to Blue Cat in time for their March 3 deadline for final submissions.
Does anyone have Tinkerbell's e-mail address? It's time I did something about this.
