Scriptapalooza Quarterfinalists 2010. Literary Excellence seeks Representation.

Chicago, IL USA: Aw, come on Guys, it’s not that bad. But then, it just depends on if you find the glass to be half empty or half full. Winning the First Leg of Scriptapalooza’s International Screenplay Quarterfinalist Division for 2010 was a glowing accomplishment, beating out some 3141 others and placing in the top 10% – being one of 377 that made 'The Cut.’ This Cut may symbolize the Culmination of years of experience or merely a spontaneous Try at writing a Screenplay. However, we are now on our own – as there won’t be any Hollywood Promo Machines behind us, steering us to the top of the box office heap. I view this not so much as a Dilemma but as a Core Group of Writers who are sheer Talent that Producers, Managers, Literary Agents, Entertainment Attorneys and/or any other ‘Movers & Shakers’ should further closely examine for a Great Story Line as there are some mighty swell Scripts & Plots here deserve to be 'broken into The Big Time.

Therefore, with this healthier outlook in mind than to leave them on an inactive or dead list unattended to, I now invite the remaining Scriptapalooza QuarterFinalists who did not go on and place in the top 100 SemiFinalists to fill in the blanks.
