Holy Crap, I Won Again

I am very humbled and sort of blown away to announce that one of my other scripts, "In the Silences", just won Best Script in the Amazon Studios' August contest.

Now I really need to write...

So Now This Is Happening -

Which is pretty cool.

Basically a test film is like a series of sketches telling the whole story, with a dialogue track and music laid over it. Animated films do it a lot, to make sure something is working before they go full-animation on it.

Amazon Pictures believes in it for development as well as demonstrating the potential of an idea, and my screenplay is one of the first test movies that they are creating themselves to show the kind of thing they want to do with it.

Hopefully it'll lead to an actual movie being made of it.

Either way, it should be cool, and though I have nothing to do with the making of it, can't wait to see how it turns out.
