A bit of classic horror to cheer you up

Been keeping this in reserve. Had some good news and some bad news today.

Good: My short play has been picked as one of the four for a final performance. We modified them in light of comments from audience, actors and directors then resubmitted. I was one of the ones picked. I'm going to have to stand up and talk about the play then answer questions from the floor so my fingernails have suddenly disappeared.

Bad: Super Shorts semi-final list is now up. I didn't get through. I'm telling myself that there was a HUGE pile of submissions and I just missed so it was quite an achievement. I know I was nearly picked because the sheep are lying down so it must be true.

So here's the little horror present.

Hi Rach. Congrats on the play and commisserations about Super Shorts. I didn't get through the latter either but I'm sure we both just missed out ;-)

Caroline said...

Good to have some good news - congratulations on the play.
I didn't get shortlisted for Super Shorts either.

Love the cats :)

Congrats on the play. I didn't get through to Supershorts either. I'm sure it must be some kind of clerical error.

Rach said...

Thanks all. I'll post up how the play goes. Just sent off the stuff for the programme.

Sorry the rest of you also didn't get through. We woz robbed of course.

Typing in a hurry because battery is low, the power is going on and off and lightning has flashed across the fells. Who needs a horror film when you live out here.

Robin has a couple of other short script comps on his calendar by the way. FilmFolk (they make the winner) and Movie Script. I might submit them there.

Rach said...

Ooops. Movie Script for shorts has passed the deadline. Only the Feature length left. I'll have to skip that one I think.

Oli said...

Hmmmm. Didn't make it either. Humph.

Rach said...

Maybe not getting through is to make the BBC Sharps email an extra special high when it arrives?

We need those downs before the ups to add some tension after all.

Rach said...

No prob. Like to recommend a good read.

Elinor said...

Great news on the play, Rach. I bombed on Supershorts as well. Never mind. Onward to Film Folk!

Rach said...

Hi Elinor. Sorry to hear you didn't get through either.

And now Sharps as well. I need a thicker skull for banging against those walls.
