Will you be posting "reader comment excerpts" on FB from time to time as the judging progresses? Best cocktease in town.

Advice on affordable feedback or Script Consultancy services
Patrick, a top ten finish in Big Break is no mediocre success. This is a major league event with hundreds of entries. I've been very happy with Page's script services. They have a couple of "go to" people I can recommend. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Phil Sedgwick, Julia Kubik, Jim Jackson, Nathan Goldman, Margie Kaptanoglu, Mike Hanson, J. Edwards, all with at least one "dog in the hunt"-m
In Creative World Awards. Well done, guys. Hope I didn't miss anyone.
Haha, James. I've always wanted to do that, but could never quite find the nads. Thanks for inspiring me to do it next time. (Hopefully there will be a next time). Congrats and good luck in the next round.
Nathan, I remember a little bit about Anne Bonny, having gone through a "pirate phase" as a kid. Is your piece pretty much a biography, or more of a fictionalized account or what? (If I may ask) Good luck with it.
What bugs me is Gordy calls his feedback "analyses". To me this term implies some kind of in depth review. That's not what you get from Blue Cat. You get a few sentences telling you in general terms what the reader liked and what he/she didn't. While I've picked up a helpful point or two from them, for the most part you get what you pay for, considering $60 for an entry and two reviews.
Decided, against the advice of some vets on this board, to give this one a go, and I achieved some sort of distinction.
My comedy received a "0" in every single category. The reader called it "horrible" and said he/she had to stop reading after 60 pages. I feel so honored, much like John Belushi (pencils up my nose).
For the record, the same script is twice a semifinalist and once a quarterfinalist in better known contests during the past year.j

PLEASE COME HOME, TO ALL THE FAILED SCREENWRITERS, STOP THE MADNESS AND WASTING MORE MONEY
Kat Lady (50s) squats at computer, F. U. P. A. impervious to her Spanx, scowls at notice on screen telling her she flunks the English section of her G. E. D. exam for not having a clue what a paragraph is.
The entire sequence at the dead girl's memorial service where Cole Seer exposes the evil stepmom (Angelica Torn) as a diabolical killer.
He presents the red box containing the telltale video tape to the grieving father. The playing of the video. Dad smiles a bit observing his dead daughter at play, then his face gradually turns to puzzlement, anguish, abject horror and finally fury at what he beholds.
All eyes slowly turn to the bitch in the inappropriate red dress. A chilling, riveting scene with little or no dialogue.
