This guy has no personal info in his profile, has posted only two items and both were trying to pry money out of forum members for a "lab" and a "contest."

Someone should delete these mercenary forays into WB.

Default Contest Update

THE 2008 BLUECAT SCREENPLAY COMPETITION

DEADLINE: MARCH 3rd MIDNIGHT
LATE DEADLINE: APRIL 1st


• Winner receives $10,000
• Four finalists receive $1500
• Every writer receives a written script analysis of their screenplay


Now in its 10th year, the BlueCat Screenplay Competition has discovered more successful writers and provided more support through our analysis and feedback to more writers than any screenplay competition in the world.

We’re not a film festival, an agency or media corporation, or the arm of a corporate studio. We are for screenwriters only!



Who are the writers BlueCat discovers?

Andy Stock and Rick Steadman (2005 Winners) has a second script in production: THE GOODS: THE DON READY STORY, produced by Will Farrell and starring Jeremy Piven and Ving Rhames

Lance Hammer (2004 Finalist) recently won the 2008 Sundance Directing Award for BALLAST---on to Berlin!

Andy Pagana (2004 Winner) is directing for DIE HARD producer, BlueCat winner under second option after winning 2006 Austin

Young Kim’s (2006 Winner) script HYUNG’S OVERTURE attached to HITCH producer Teddy Zee after development in Pusan

Ana Lily Amirpour’s (2007 Winner) THE STONES slated for production this year


How does every writer who enters BlueCat actively change as a writer?

We provide over 600 words of analysis on every script we receive, carefully written by readers handpicked by our judge, giving the beginning writer and the seasoned pro an objective opinion on their work.

Over the course of our history, we have given over 7000 writers feedback on their screenplay for simply entering, at no additional cost.

Would you like an honest, unguarded reaction to your screenplay?


Does BlueCat have the largest award in the world?

We offer the largest cash prize ($16,000) for a screenplay contest that provides written analysis to every entrant than any other competition. There are no additional fees to get our feedback on your script.

We take pride in rewarding all writers for their commitment to their goal and their dream!


SUBMIT YOUR SCREENPLAY


DEADLINE: MARCH 3rd ($50 entry fee)
LATE DEADLINE: APRIL 1st ($60 entry fee)

What a scam. With a $50 entrance fee, the first 320 scripts will pay for all the winnings and the rest will be pure profit. Since there could easily be a thousand entries, that makes a huge payday for the promoters of this contest.

too true, starr... and a truly cheesy website does nothing to inspire confidence...

my best advice is to stay away from contests, unless they're top level ones that can actually help advance your career, like the big 3 [nicholl; disney; chesterfield]... the next level down is ok, if you can afford the fees [sundance; final draft; asa; and 2-3 others]... below that, i wouldn't advise anyone to go...
