It’s odd to feel joy right now. I literally cried when I saw I’m a quarterfinalist for the ScreenCraft Fellowship for my feature film script, Wild and Precious Lives. This is my first feature film script that I’ve written so this sign of encouragement means more than I have words to express. They had ~3,000 entires. About a quarter of those make it to the quarterfinals and go into the next round of reading and judging.
Huge thanks to my friend and writing mentor, John Bucher, for his priceless advice and belief in my work, and particularly for his notes on this script.
Here’s the logline: “When they orchestrate a massive student protests against American isolationism, four friends at an all-women’s college in Virginia face intense punishment from their school’s vindictive administration in the pivotal month of December 1941 before war completely transforms the trajectory of their lives.”
