Screenwriter Zachary Rowell just wrapped up a potentially life-changing experiment, as the winner of SoCreate’s “So, Write Your Bills Away” Sweepstakes. We awarded him three months of paid time off to write a feature-length script, which is a luxury few aspiring screenwriters get. The cash, he said, was a very nice bonus, but surprisingly not the most impactful takeaway from his experience.
In his own words, Zachary wrote an opinion piece for NoFilmSchool.com to discuss the process, and what the prize really meant to him.
Some excerpts are below. You can read the piece in its entirety by heading over to Jason Hellerman’s full article at NoFilmSchool.com.
Hint, hint: SoCreate IS planning on doing another one of these challenges.
Keep your eyes on the prize. Announcement coming soon,
