26 July 2019 Excited to announce that original feature scripts '4 Miles Per Second' and 'Loosely Based On Real Life' made the cut to the quarter-final round of the 2019 Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting competition.
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
'4 Miles Per Second ' is a nuclear disaster film, set in London, and plays out in almost real time.
'Loosely Based On Real Life' is a reverse love story, exploring a marriage across one night. It asks how do we fall out of love, when we feel the urge to cling on, even if splitting up is the right thing to do.
