The competition for this year's Stage 32 Happy Writer's Annual Feature Contest has been fierce. Our judges continually remarked about how impressed they were with the writing talent they were seeing. Two things that I continually kept hearing about the submissions was - "polished" and "innovative." In a crowded marketplace of new film ideas, this is quite an honor for me to hear. As the President of the Stage 32 Happy Writers this feedback further solidifies the advanced talent pool we have with our writers.
I wanted to give special acknowledgement to this year's Finalists in the Stage 32 Happy Writers Annual Feature Contest. We will give exposure to all of our finalists below - we will be sending their script titles and loglines to our entire roster of over 400 executives to gain interest in scripts. This group of writers will also advance to the final judging round, where we will select the top 10. Our top 10 writers will have a variety of prizes, including Skype meetings with executives, classes and pitching sessions. And, the top 3 writers will receive the grand prize - they will be flown to Los Angeles to meet with 10 development executives, managers, agents or producers face to face. We will have a special cocktail reception with the writers and the executives and we will help mentor the top 3 writers for 1 year. The top 10 will be announced August 7, so stay tuned!
We love giving opportunity and access to our Stage 32 members and are excited to congratulate our Finalists:
