The votes have been counted (do they vote? I don’t know. Probably).
The scripts have been selected.
The results are in.
Did I make it?
No I didn’t.

Unfortunately THE KIDNAP did not push through to the next round of the Bluecat Screenplay Competition.
Certainly a shame, but I won’t beat myself up about it (or anyone else… probably) – I’m just proud to get in the Top 10% of Bluecat.

Congratulations to everyone who got through to the Quarter Finals – this is awesome news.
Right. That was it. Bad news delivered.
Now… on with some rewrites!
