Stage 32/Happy Writers Search for New Blood Contest

Hey everyone! I just wanted to update everyone here about my experiences in LA after winning the Stage 32/Happy Writers Search for New Blood Screenplay Contest. I just returned from a 3 day trip to LA (thanks to Stage 32 for flying me down from Toronto) which was crammed full of meetings and the Stage 32 Cocktail party for the winners where I got to meet execs from Millennium Films and Unbroken Films and others. I also had private one-on-one meetings with some of the brightest movers and shakers in the business, including execs at Relativity Media, Level 1 Entertainment, Revolver Pictures, and managers at Circle of Confusion and Infinity Management. Also, because of the win, I've got reads happening at ICM, CAA, Benderspink, Zero Gravity, and a whole lot more. This whole process has opened a doorway for me into the offices of the decision-makers. I would never have had this unique opportunity if it weren't for Stage 32/Happy Writers (Joey Tuccio, RB and their staff) and Kailey Marsh of The Blood List. While I'm not sure where I'm headed yet, there was an incredible amount of enthusiasm, goodwill and support generated by these execs and I believe it's only a matter of time until I'll be working with at least one of them on a film project or script. A great experience all around. Keep writing! Glenn

Can we get more details, or is it confidential. Like what did they say and ask you.

Glenn Forbes

Hard to narrow down 6 hours of conversations that covered everything from my current script, to my other scripts, to future projects, to the state of the industry, breaking in as a writer, to personal and professional anecdotes. It was a little bit of everything.

Sylvia Marie Llewellyn

Great way to end 2014. Happy to see a Torontonian get the prize. Congrats.
