My short screenplay TOO MUCH AIR has advanced to the next round of NYC Midnight Short Screenplay Challenge
“TOO MUCH AIR” by Debi Yazbeck
LOGLINE – Live, love, laugh — even laugh last. But always watch your back.
This was really fun to create and write. I’m excited for my next set of prompts Saturday morning.
What craziness can I devise next… hmmm?
Thank you, Tomorrow, for your kind and generous nature and for making the filming of OUT OF THE WALLS a delight!
And the good news from April 14th…
OUT OF XATALA made the 2020 BlueCat Screenplay Competition SEMI-FINALS!
I received some of the best notes EVER from BlueCat’s script analysis.
I’m excited to be a Quarter-Finalist for BlueCat’s 2020 Screenplay Competition.
Looking forward to April 14th!
p.s. I loved KNIVES OUT!
I’m hoping there are bobcat kittens close by.
Two of my features:
TETON RECKONING – western
BLIND PURSUIT – psychological thriller
I hadn’t entered a contest in a while, had never entered LAISA, but I felt my TV pilot, Those Beneath, could be a really good fit.
And look at this line-up of judges:
They sent me a one of the best set of scripts notes ever (I highly recommend).
Those Beneath is a quarter-finalist, top 10%.
Next announcement next week.
What an incredible cast and crew! We filmed the second half of my short drama, Saltwater, yesterday on location in Frisco, Texas.
And then we had one of the actors, Larry Lobster, for dinner.The other actors, Rebecca Moore and Jesse Grider, were spared the boiling water. They’re needed for the next and final day of filming.
Matthew DeLeon directed the cast and crew with a quiet finesse that I predict will make him a big name someday. Thank you, Matthew.
My feature, Blind Pursuit, came in as a finalist in the 2016 Screenplay Festival under the Movie Script – Thriller/Horror category!
Such a fun evening.
And a great honor to receive Best Feature Screenplay at the 2016 California Women’s Film Festival.
None of this would have happened without Max Adams and the Academy of Film Writing. Max rocks as a teacher and a mentor!
And I had my own fan club there!
Ken Harter, my always supportive husband, Aaron Harter – his son and Catie Blalock – Aaron’s girlfriend. And fellow screenwriter, Mike Cregan.
