Received word today that the Off The Hook screenplay has advanced to the semifinals in the Final Draft Big Break contest!  My category (family/animated) was cut down from 19 to 13 scripts and I'm thrilled to stay alive.

There's some incredible competition in there with scripts that have won major contests like the Page Awards and finished highly in the Academy's Nicholl Fellowships.

The next cut to the top 10 finalists should come in a week or two so we'll see if this script can match my top 10 finish (with an action script) from last year's contest.

I'm very excited to announce that the Off the Hook screenplay has just made the quarter-finals in the family/animated category of the Final Draft Big Break Contest!

The Final Draft Big Break Contest is one of the 6 or 7 heavyweights in the screenwriting contest world with entries totaling in the 7 to 8 thousand (yes, thousand!) range so it's very cool to make the first cut leaving just 19 left in my category.

This marks the 10th contest placement for the script (complete list can be found here) and I've been lucky enough to have it requested by some of the biggest agencies in Hollywood and even a director. Thus far that's as far as it's gotten but every placement helps keep the momentum going!

Last year I had another script called, Do or Die, finish in the top 10 in the action category so we'll see if Off the Hook can top that mark this year!

Thanks for the honor Final Draft!
