We have just found out our sci-fi thriller screenplay, Residual, is through to the Semi-Finals of the Academy Nicholl Fellowship. This means we're now down to the last 150 out of 379 from the Quarters and a total of 7511 submissions so it's once again something to be very proud of!
This means our screenplay will now be read by 4 Academy members and assessed ahead of the Finalist announcement. Apparently 10 screenplays progress to the final and there are then up to 5 winners of the $35,000 prize. We should find out in the next month or so if we've made the cut.
