UPDATE: First off, thank you to everyone who applied for free notes! Sometimes, when I’m doing this, I forget that these are all real people with real lives struggling to do this thing that they love. That happens because it’s the internet and I see all these names but never any faces. Hearing your stories sort of helps put a face to those names. And it reminds me I have a duty to do as much as I can to help you guys, which makes moments like these a little harder. I wish I could read everybody’s script but I just don’t have the time. Which means, despite all of your wonderful e-mails, I can only pick one. And I’ve decided to pick…
BEN PICKLES’ SCRIPT!
Ben’s been a fairly regular contributor in the comments section but the reason I picked him is because he seems to have a unique way of seeing things. As a reader, you’re always looking for writers who have a unique take on the world, and a unique way of conveying that take. Ben feels like he could potentially be that writer. His script is titled, “Of Glass And Golden Clockwork” and the logline is: “On the eve of the Third World War, a conflicted young soldier goes AWOL to pursue one final lead towards his father’s mysterious murder.“ I’ll let you know when I finish the notes and post them in the Script Notes section. :)
ORIGINAL POST BELOW:
For Christmas I’m offering one Scriptshadow reader a free five page consult on their script (script notes). The only catch is that I might use the notes as my “sample” on the Script Notes page. If you’re okay with that, all you have to do is write down in the comments section why I should give you the notes. You can make me laugh, make me cry, make me confused. It’s up to you. And if you’re not keen on blasting out personal reasons for reading your script, e-mail email@example.com and in the subject line put: “FREE NOTES” and make your case there. I’ll read everything and post the “winner” on Wednesday morning. Merry Christmas everybody! :)
