I just squeaked through the first elimination round of NYCMidnight’s short screenplay contest with my script “The Recruit”.
For Round #2, my genre assignment was Fantasy, location an army barracks, and object a limousine. I only scored 7/15 for this one, but with my points for Round #1 it was enough to put me in the top 5 of my group, and advance.
A young soldier receives a mysterious offer.
I’m not optimistic about Round #3. Genre was Romance, location a candy store, and object a lock. Romance is very much NOT in my wheelhouse, so I’m not confident with my submission, but we’ll see what happens in February!
