Last month we shared that we were quarter finalists in the 2016 Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting. We were delighted as there were 6,915 scripts entered.
This morning we received this email…
‘Congratulations! You have advanced into the Semifinal Round of the 2016 Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting. Your script is one of only 149 entries to advance from the Quarterfinal Round. During the Semifinals, four Academy members, drawn from a variety of branches, will read Rocketboy. Over the past half dozen years about ten Semifinalists have progressed into the Finals; the number should be similar this year.’
Suddenly it’s getting real! Woooooo!
Here’s the logline… When Connor, a brilliant but shy young boy meets Becky, a gregarious but troubled young girl, they embark on a extraordinary journey that might… just might… take them all the way to the moon.
