Accolades and Laurels

As part of the development of the screenplay we entered in several contests and festivals, focusing on those that gave feedback with the intent of using the response to fine tune the script. The notes were overall positive but give points on areas that needed attention. Revised, then submitted to others, focusing primarily on festivals that separated out genre of comedy.

Festivals

We attended the Toronto Film Fesitval, along with our lawyer, Corky Kessler, where we met with many other filmmakers. This was our official launch. The response to the story, title, logline and one sheet were excellent.

Sundance

We attended Sundance, again with Corky, where we were entered in a pitch contest sponsored by the Utah Film Commission. We had 5 minutes, including questions from the panel. We took second place, which included a $500 prize. At the party afterward, we were told by some of the panel we actually tied for first, but they were not in a position to do "tied winners."

At this point we have received thirty laurels from festivals and contests for comedies. There are a few more festivals submissions pending. Our 1-sheet has the list of laurels, as well as basics about the project.

What's in a name?

The script title is derived by combining the names of the two most popular and lucrative lottery games: MegaMillions and Powerball
