Get Repped Now EXTENDED - MUST END Dec. 4!

Howdy, fellow escribadors! Well, this is somewhat concerning. Normally by this point in our twice-yearly GET REPPED NOW event we have at least 6-8 "considers." by that, I mean scripts that have come in for coverage which we have rated a "consider" or better for script, which generally equates to about the top 5%. By the end of Get Repped Now we generally have around ten or so solid scripts to send to our manager panel. 

This time out we have two.

This puts us in a bit of a spot. On the one hand, those two scripts are really good. That's exciting. Props to Joseph Balczo and Tony Dunoyer + Alex Chevasco (both of whom are previous Get Repped Now considers as well, so you know they've got the goods) for knocking it out of the park. We can't wait to drop their scripts on our managers, and I'm pretty confident we can make something happen for these guys. 

On the other hand, we've had so many near-misses this time out it kinda hurts. There's a lot of great material out there that just isn't quite there yet -- another draft or three may be needed to lick some plot logic issue or clear out the deadwood, etc.  This gives us less variety to present to the managers, and ultimately of course that means fewer talented people with the chance to get a meeting, gain a fan, start working with one of the managers or even get signed.

We generally do a 1-week extension as a matter of course with Get Repped Now, mainly because there are always johnny-come-latelies who only hear about our little promotion late in the game (it only runs for a month, way shorter than contests.)  And so it comes to this: our FINAL WEEK. Get Repped Now's final deadline is Dec. 4th. That's midnight Pacific Time, by the way.  So polish, polish, polish, get it as good as you can, because a lot is on the line here (no pressure.) Then send it to us for analysis and we'll tell you how close to the bull's-eye you are. And if it's awesome, we will give it to our managers with our recommendation, and they will read it -- guaranteed. Beyond that, it's up to you and the material.

Time to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and oh crap. looks like you're all out of bubble gum.
