So it’s probably time for an update!
My family and I recently returned to Europe after 6 weeks of visiting family and working out of the office in Indianapolis. Needless to say, no work was accomplished onThe Descent of the Gods during that time, however, that’s not to say nothing was going on.
I’m very pleased to share that this morning I received confirmation that the script has been accepted to compete in the BIG CROSS Los Angeles Christian Film Festival.
The festival is held in November, so still a while to wait before we know anything more…. 🙂
As well, the time in the USA was a great ‘break’ from the script. Late 2015 and early 2016 I had been working very hard on it, and so over the last few months it has been nice to have time to reflect, focus on family, and also get valuable feedback and fresh perspectives from various people about how they are enjoying it, and their ideas for further improvements.
As of this week, I’m diving back into the fine-tuning based on the feedback. I’ve been very fortunate to have had some very thoughtful readers give me their thoughts, and their critiques are brimming with suggestions on how to take something that isn’t quite working, and make it the best it can be. When criticism recognizes the value of your vision and is seeking to help you achieve that goal – it’s invigorating!
Some of my valued critics – Jack, Bethany, Chanel, Marcin, Oliver, and of course my wife and family.
This round of edits are intended to do final tuning on the script with the intention of entering a very prestigious screenplay competition in October.
If you’d like to help me, I’d love your feedback to make the script the best it can be. The latest version (as of yesterday…) is here: https://goo.gl/zMkxLH
Let me know what you like, who you like, what surprises you, what’s not working for you and why…
What’s the plan after the big contest? I’m not 100% sure, but probably the novel version is next, while the sequels are in development as well.
