Five months worth of blog posts…

I’ve been tardy…very tardy. Actually I’ve been grieving, but let’s not go there.

So, apart from the obvious negative, here’s some positive stuff that’s been happening…

Office Romance 2.0 won the Jury Award for Best Short Film at the United Film Festival – San Francisco.

It also got into the San Diego Film Festival and the Aesthetica Short Film Festival.

The Sleeper is in the quarter finals of the Screenwriting Goldmine competition (along with about 120 others).

It’s also been longlisted for the micro-budget film development programme, lo-fi, supported by Screen Academy Scotland, BBC Scotland, Matador Pictures and Creative Scotland.

The Weird World of M.R. James also reached the quarter finals of the Screenwriting Goldmine competition, thus doubling my chances of disappointment.

It got a very encouraging read through (and feedback) from the BBC Writersroom.

And it also won Circalit’s Nick Santora screenwriting competition and received more encouraging feedback from the man himself.

But that’s enough about me…what you been up to?
