Success Stories: JUL'1 The Third Bomb gets a little love

The Third Bomb gets a little love

GK Films, the folks behind World War Z, Argo, Dark Shadows, Hugo, Jersey Boys, Rango and the TV series Grimm have requested to read my script The Third Bomb. I may go check myself into a monastery and pray for 3 months while I wait..... :-) Thank you to Stage 32, Joey and EVERYONE at Happy Writers!

Phil: Happy dance for you. And a few months in a monastery might do you some good. Just take your laptop and use the time to write your next script.

Tina Goldsack

Some Monasteries are gorgeous. And beautiful sounds of music they can make.

Emma J Steele

Fantastic, Phil, something has to stick soon! Congratulations!

Phil Parker

A secluded monastery sounds like a great place to write. Hmm, also sounds like a perfect place for ET's cousins to hide while they hatch a plot to...

Chanel Ashley

Parker? You related to………? Good job, kid.

Phil Parker

Thanks, Chanel. This monastery needs to install central heating. though. I'm tired of putting a bedpan full of hot coals under my bed every night! Ommmmmmmmm....

Chanel Ashley

Haha, monastery, eh? … and those damn hot coals, does this also suggest celibacy? Things we do for a script, lol.

Phil Parker

Celibacy for a script?! 8-0 Worst. Idea. Ever. ;-)

Suzanne Lutas

Considering the amount of all your Contest placements and the requests you've got, I'd say The third Bomb gets HUGE love! And you have mine too! :-) Happy writing retreat Phillip, so to speak!

Phil Parker

Thanks. Suzanne!! Hope you're doing well and writing up a storm :-)

Suzanne Lutas

Indeed, I got another request for The Dead Ringer, which is also in the Page Quarterfinals, again. And Destiny's Vessel has won the Eyestorm/Script Xpert Search Contest in the Sci-Fi category. So yes, I'm surfing on a breaker of good news!

Phil Parker

Wow, Suzanne! That's so awesome! Very happy for you!!

Sylvia Marie Llewellyn

SUZANNE,,,, hey girl. I'm so thrilled that you made the Page Quarter-final list as well. Good for you. CONGRATS... Page had 6,200 entries... so you and I and others are in the top 10%... So it means a lot even if we don't progress any further... it's fantastic... I'm happy... remember it's so subjective.... who knows where it will end up. All the best to you as well.

Suzanne Lutas

Hey Sylvia, Congratulations on your Page ranking! And thank you so much for your encouraging words. I'll stay behind you and push you onward and forward. I wish you climbed the ladder to the top and reached the stars!
