As the saying goes "The dream is free. The hustle sold separately." It takes an incredible amount hustle to move a project forward, as evidence by everything we share here on Stage 32. Today I wanted to share with you a video from Kevin Bachar, who was the winner of our 4th annual Search for New Blood screenwriting contest for his incredible script BLOOD RELATIVE. After Kevin won the contest, we flew him out to LA and set him up on a slew of meetings all around town with people who are interested in his project. It takes a ton of work to get yourself out there. As a result of his endless drive (as you'll see in this video), he now has attached director John Poliquin (GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2) and is in discussions with Mike DeTrana from Anvil Entertainment to produce the film with a possible option from Three Point Capital for financing. We couldn't be more excited for Kevin and BLOOD RELATIVE. Please congratulate Kevin, your fellow Stage 32er, in the comments section below!
