Well it’s all done.

I have just finished submitting both of my current screenplays “Mom” & “Two-Five” to the Austin Film Festivals 2013 Screenwriters Competition.

Winners will be announced in October 2013.  Wish me luck.

It took me awhile to write this one.

There are 178 scenes but also a lot of “Montages” (consecutive scenes with no dialogue).

It is also longer than normal screenplays. The norm is 90 – 120 pages. “Mom” has 150 pages so this will have to be a 2 1/2 hour film if filmed in it’s entirety.

I know the folks at the Austin Film Festivals Screenwriters competition will probably frown because it is so long, but it just took that long to tell the story I wanted to tell.

If it ever gets produced, they will most definitely want to cut it down some.

Until then though, the full script is available here for download.

I also want to dedicate this script “In Loving Memory of my Mom, Lyda”.  I miss you Mom.
