Third Round Joy

Today is a good day.

Not only have I been informed that we exchange contracts on our new house tomorrow (at bloomin' last) but the third round qualifiers for this years BSSC have been announced. The Dead Side Of Life was one of those scripts chosen....they like me, they really like me :-)

I've never got this far in a script competition before, so please excuse me if I overflow with excitement and let it go to my head for a moment.

At last my obvious talent has been recognised. Move aside mere mortals, Dom's massive inflated ego needs lots more room. Huzzah!!!!!

All joking aside, it's a massive achievement for what has so far been not the best of years screenwriting wise for me.

So who got through and who didn't, I'd love to know? Please let me know in the comments.

Does anyone know how many rounds there are and when they are announced?

Andy Goodman said...

Whenever I've seen that the next round qualifiers have been announced (whichever that round happened to be) looking down the list for my short was looking to see if an 'A' level had been passed or not.

Thankfully, mine has also progressed! Yay! Dom, I think that they're going to make any short beginning with 'The...' - mine's 'The Right Thing'.

Well done, mate.

Dom Carver said...

Nice one, Andy...or should that be, The nice one ;-)

Lianne said...

Well done Andy and Dom. As far as I know there's one more qualifying round and then the semis, but may be wrong.

Oli said...

Good for you - but how many rounds does one competition need?

Lucy said...

Congrats Dom

I agree Oli - TOO MANY in this one, I can't stand the suspense but more in the sense of being completely bored by it, I even forgot all about this round! ; )

Christine said...

Grats Dom. I, sadly, am out.

Jon Peacey said...

Congratulations!!!

Paul M said...

Nice one Dom. Hope it gets even further, it's all good. If you win you're within easy stalking distance ;-)

Dom Carver said...

Christine: Never mind. Start working on ideas for next year, write and then polish like crazy :-)

Paul M: Was that you hiding in my bushes last night? I thought it was a cat.

martin said...

congrats Dom, and Lianne's right - one more round, THEN the semis, THEN the finalists, THEN the winners.

What do you mean too much?? ;)
