Another round of reading and script evaluation has been completed! A new set of judges have weighed in to determine which scripts will advance to the next round. Without further ado, we are happy to announce the 2016 FiLMLaB Semifinalists:
DARLIN COMMIT ME, by Douglas Boom
FRAME OF MIND, by Shaun Radecki
OBJECT OF AFFECTION, by Kate Erickson
PENDULUM, by Amy Fredericks
RUNNING OUT OF TIME, by Brad Williamson
SLIM PICKINGS, by Steve Allrich
THE DIAMOND THIEF OF ELLSWORTH MANOR, by Jennifer Wegerer
THE ROSES SHE REMEMBERS, by Maren Curtis
TIMES SQUARED, by Margaret Wallis
UNDIMMED, by Shaun Radecki
Each semifinalist wins a script listing to InkTip’s online site as well as their magazine which goes out to nearly 15,00 industry professionals. InkTip is, “Where everyone goes for scripts and writers,” and we are proud to have them as a FiLMLaB sponsor.
Congratulations Semifinalists and onto the next round: Celebrity Judging! Each script will be assigned to two (of four) ‘celebrity’ judges comprised of film producers and literary managers slated to attend the 2016 Willamette Writers Conference, August 12th-14th. Each judge will award points based on story, use of prompts, etc., and provide brief notes. All semifinalists will be provided with copies of their Celebrity Judges notes and scoring, and if they advance to the final round (the Producers Circle), can utilize them to improve their script in an optional rewrite.
We are excited to see what our celebs have to say about this year’s crop of FiLMLaB scripts and wish all of our semifinalists the best of luck as we get closer and closer to choosing our 2016 winner!
“At FiLMLaB, the experiment is you!”
