Lights, camera – ACTION! The critics will soon be busy making their selections from the Red-Carpet Premier entries!
Remember again that contests are subjective. What tickles one person’s fancy, may do nothing for another. There were tons of excellent entries. Even with five people making selections, that’s nothing compared to the number of literary agents out there. No matter what, keep querying!
I hope that the nature of this contest has been a benefit to everyone. There’s not too many contests that provide feedback to everyone who enters. The whole Tinseltown crew tried their best to share their experience and give solid advice.
Because Princess Grace and I love suspense, here are some guidelines before we announce the winners:
There is no commenting in this round, except for critics. Sorry, but no cheerleading as this may lead to an unconscious bias. All the comments are hidden, anyway. No requests will be revealed until the end of the Red-Carpet Premier on Wednesday, April 15th.
But we are happy to see and retweet your thoughts and cheers over on twitter under the #Pitchslam tag! That’s the place to hang out and have fun! I’ll be announcing when critics have stopped by this blog and giving hints about requests. Some of those hints might even be mildly helpful.
I’d better be seeing my Team Notorious members there, or I’ll be getting out my rope. It takes guts and teamwork to make it to the end of a Hitchcock film without getting vertigo, and our team’s got both of those beyond a shadow of a doubt. Lack of team spirit is for the birds!
Agents will consider entries at all the Directors’ blogs. If more than one critic has the highest level of request on an entry, there will be a showdown on twitter after the Red Carpet ends. The first agent to answer the Movie Trivia question wins the entry and gets first shot at the pages.
Here’s what the critics will be requesting:
Stunning Debut – Query and first 10 pages
Instant Classic – Query and first 25 pages
Dark Horse Hit – Query and first 50 pages
Box Office Smash – Query and first 100 pages
Blockbuster – Query and full
If you haven’t found your entry here, heck out the stunning casts chosen by our other Directors below for their films:
That’s right! We have a fifth team to add even more entries into the mix. This group is for entries that Directors couldn’t give up. The entries that no amount of trade offers could pry fingers off. In addition, each Assistant Director helped pick a special entry to make up this team! Yay for surprises!
Good luck to everyone! Thanks for making Pitchslam such a fun experience!
If there are any issues with your entry, tweet me @LH_Writes and let me know.
