I've taken another huge step in my dream toward becoming a professional screenwriter. My feature script, False Start, was named best screenplay at the La Dolce Vita Cine Roma Film Festival and Mont. Blanc International Movie Festival.
Although I've got a long way to go for my script to make the big screen, I'm trending upward. My goal for 2020 was to submit my scripts into many festivals with the purpose of winning contests or placing high enough to attract the attention of movie studio executives. Submitting to festivals without getting accepted doesn't cut it anymore, I need victories or a clear opportunity to sell my script.
