I have some great news – my screenplay, “Under the Rising Sun” (adapted from my book “Through My Mother’s Eyes”) has just taken a big leap in recognition. The PAGE International Screenplay Competition in Los Angeles is one of the most prestigious script competitions around, only surpassed by the Nicholl Fellowships sponsored by the Academy Awards. Screenplays that make the finalist cut are among the elite, and I’m proud to say that my script finally broke new ground by making the Finals in an announcement on Sunday September 15th! There are several thousand entrants in this competition every year and the competition is stiff. The top screenplays that make this cut get the attention of producers, agents (like CAA, etc.) and actors/actresses looking for a script that they can make their mark with.
They announce the Grand Prize winner ($25,000) on October 15th.
Here’s the website announcing today’s winners. You’ll see mine under ‘Historical Drama.’
I’ll keep you posted… things are getting exciting!
