Very excited to announce that my 2 feature scripts '4 Miles Per Second and 'Loosely Based On Real Life' have made the cut to the quarterfinal round of the 2019 Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting competition. The 2 scripts are part of the 365 entries to emerge from the first round. Reaching the quarterfinals is not an easy task. With 7,302 scripts entered, the initial round was particularly competitive. The scripts are evaluated by three judges drawn from a diverse group of film professionals. These judges read the scripts blind, without seeing application forms, loglines, or prior scores and comments, so the scripts are judged purely on the writing.
The Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting is an international screenwriting competition established to identify and encourage talented new screenwriters. https://www.oscars.org/nicholl
