Thanks for the live read of ‘Ginger Snap’. It’s great to hear it read aloud. I couldn’t attend so can’t grade networking etc but communication is always top notch.

Screenwriter Rita Martinos (ON THE VERGE)

Well, the title of the festival is enough to know what’s influenced me. Supporting female artists is a beautiful thing, an opportunity than was rarely available in the past. To receive feedback is the cherry on top. The initial feedback I received was truly inspiring. As I’ve mentioned, I’ve let my script breathe for a while now, and this feedback has inspired me to take this script to the next level.

I want to thank you immensely for the feedback! I’m truly grateful. Feedback and reviews are the main reasons I submit to competitions such as this one. I’m most pleased with this one in particular because the reviewer took the time to make suggestions as to how I could make the script better, most notably with some of my character relationships.

COMEDY Best Scene Reading of The Masses by Toni Nagy

The Masses is a post-partisan, omni-racial, multi-gender, quasi-radical, sketch comedy show that represents the perspective of the artistic and creative counter-culture that is actually the mainstream. The tone will be the “Twilight Zone” meets sketch comedy – creating scenarios that are rooted both in reality and in our surreal dystopian not-too-distant future. Centered on a cast that will range in ages from 18 to 80 and will be so racially/sexually/bodily diverse that Benetton ads will cower in shame; The Masses will contain social commentary peppered with absurdity and pure hilarity.

CAST LIST:

Bill: Liam Kinahan
The Vagina: Mandy May Cheetham
Narrator: Sean Ballantyne
Charles: Adrian Currie
Will: John Leung
