[THE COMPETITION] Updates/Schedule
[Now we gotta little work to do]
Okay. So you’ve done your part and now it’s time for us to do ours.
First off, we received hundreds of submissions over the four days the competition window was open. I honestly didn’t think we’d get this volume, and I certainly didn’t think we get it at the velocity we did. Which is, yet again, another example of you guys blowing us away by how engaged and enthused everyone is.
Second, you guys did good. I’m very pleased by the quality of what was submitted. Great job! Fantastic!
So here’s what I’m thinking regarding a schedule:
We’ll take the next couple of weeks narrowing down the submissions to the 10 (or so) that will make it to the next round (and I say, or so, because I might approve more than 10 submissions, Regardless, we’ll take the rest of the month and do that).
The first week of March, I’ll announce/note/publish all the submissions that made the cut. Then you’ll have the rest of the month of March to write and turn in your outline.
The first week of April, I’ll announce/note/publish all the outlines that made the cut. Then you’ll have the rest of April to write your script pages. And then...
The first week of May, I’ll announce the winner. Then we’ll go make a comic.
This is probably more time than we need, but I want to make sure everyone has the time to put their back into it and to make sure I have time to go through everything in a manner that’s both helpful and thorough.
Okay, great, great job everyone.
Almost had a heart attack opening this substack wondering if the results were going to be posted. I haven’t felt that kind of “did I make it” burst of energy since high school
Happy to hear that there was a lot of great quality in the submissions! Im excited to have had the opportunity, and whomever advances forward the best of luck!
