Opens 11th November - Closes 6th Jan

I guess Red Planet Pictures itself will continue to read submissions via agents etc

It's not specifically comedy, though, is it?

Got a rejection today.
Another fail.

I'm starting to feel like the deluded nutter on X Factor - 'but everyone says I is a good writer!'.

You and me both, so it looks like they finally came through today.

However, as the entry was January 6th, it was the first 10 pages before I did a massive re-write of the script to make it more front-loaded (as this "10 page" thing seems quite common for competitions, agents, production companies etc.).

Therefore, it just confirmed what I suspected at the time - i.e. the start was too slow-paced - rather than being a big bombshell.

Odd.
I've heard nothing at all.
Doubtless this a bad sign - but I've e-mailed them for clarification.

Writers through to the second round (i.e. a full read) were contacted about 3 weeks ago.

So I gather.
But I was neither rejected or accepted.
Which makes me think something went awry with my entry.
Ho hum.
