JUDGES PICK A CONTEST WINNER.

As black and white images of old Hollywood flickered on the wall at Cinespace Hollywood, new Hollywood met to judge our screenplay contest late last week.  If you’ve seen Jon Favreau’s Dinner With Five — this was better.  Wine flowed, spinach dip disappeared, and the debate was lively… As I listened, I realized how lucky this contest and its entrants are to have such a great industry group to support us.  They volunteered their time for the aspiring writer… and, I’m guessing, for themselves… Because at one point, they were just starting out too… a crazy dream… that doesn’t seem so crazy now.  Thanks again to all of our amazing judges.  Read to the bottom for our overall winner.

    Wow. Thanks so much for the congrats. It’s a real honor to be chosen by such an incredible group of judges.

    The last couple of days have been amazing. Having the script read at so many top places. Talking to and signing with the great guys at Abstract Entertainment. It’s been wonderful and it makes me incredibly excited about what comes next.

    Finally, a huge thanks to The Insider. For the exposure and for being in touch every step of the way. You run an amazing contest.

    Which Olive Garden is that?

  8. Justin Says:

    Parasite sounds a lot like Leviathan. That movie had an intriguing premise, but didn’t turn out so hot. Here’s hoping Parasite fares better.

    Congrats, Ehud!

    Yeah, I get the ‘Leviathan’ vibe. I’m sure ‘Parasite’ is better executed.
