I want to write and tell stories.

We have a Winner

Any of you aspiring SW's like myself, who have not checked out this blog by Security Dog, do so now.

He has actually sold a script to Hollywood from here in Oz. Okay he had to travel there and take a few meetings, a week or so ago (who wouldn't), BUT, he has done it. He has been tantalizing/torturing us over a few days now, leeching the story out slowly.

I have only one thing to say about that.


What did it come down to?

Quality of script. Sound familiar?

Back to writing.

Here's a big CONGRATULATIONS to Security Dog! Well Done!

Thanks for that suggested read, it was great to get some inside scoop!

My pleasure writergurl.

Happy to help where I can! Hope your treatment goes well and you get the gig, that would be bloody fantastic.

I thought that "selling-a-script-from-outside-Tinseltown" thing was a myth!

Maybe us Aspiring ASSes aren't quite as deluded as everyone else thinks.

Well done Security Dog!

Let's see who makes it next...

Good point James. So does this make Security Dog a successful ASS? Is he now expelled from the club because he has sold something.......I think we need at least two days and a couple of cartons to revise these rules.

Or maybe SD becomes patron of the club? Drinks are on him? ;-)

He has to be the chief. And we can have a nice ASS crest with a smiling dog with two buckets of green.

To the chief!

I had the pleasure of meeting two successful screenwriters at the Austin Film Festival who do NOT live in Hollywood - Bob Soderstrom and Bill True.

Bill True's film RUNAWAY actually won the audience award for narrative feature this year. AND he doesn't even have an agent!

So - yes - 'tis possible to do it from elsewhere. Even from Australia.

You guys have Outback Steakhouses there?

I don't think we have Outback Steakhouses here......got the old bbq, pretty close I reckon ;-) I believe they are pretty popular over there?

The AFF appeals to my drunken err genuine desire to educate myself in all aspects of screenwriting as possible.
