A while back, in 2015, the script for The Flock was entered into the Mexico Film Festival. Nothing ventured... It was the second script entered into a competition. The first, Making Darkness, got through to the semi-finals of the Blue Cat Screenplay Competition in 2014. Blue Cat was a little confusing, with the two reader feedbacks having very different conclusions. The award at the Mexico Film Festival was pretty clear though- Finalist. Okay, there were another 10 or so Finalists plus one Winner and possibly a Runner UP. But we're happy with Finalist.
So that's two scripts and two, sort of okay results. What did we learn from this? Write more. Don't stop. Even when you are a Winner.
