2019 NYC Midnight Screenwriting Challenge Finalist! (07-17-2019)
YES! Just found out that I made it through the second round and into the FINALS for the 2019 NYC Midnight Screenwriting Challenge! Started with over 1700 writers from literally around the world… made it through the first round (1st place in my heat) where they cut it down to the top 300 writers, and this round took it down to the final 60 screenwriters!
The 60 advancing writers will be given a final genre, subject and character assignment and will have just 24 hours to create an original screenplay starting at Midnight this Friday.
Hope to get a good genre AND make the final 5 this time… Took 11th place back in 2017.
Here’s the synopsis of my round 2 winning script:
”Driver Assist” by Erik Candiani
LOGLINE: A Silicon Valley entrepreneur is trapped inside a hijacked autonomous vehicle, and the only person aware of the situation is the telemarketer he hung up on.
