On Friday 3rd Feb I was at Film Expo South held in the Ageas Stadium, Southampton. I had entered the Three Counties Challenge script competition. The brief was for an original script of maximum 5 minutes (i.e. 5 pages) which could be filmed in two days.

    I was one of the 10 finalists and so received a complimentary ticket to the event.

    Film Expo South is the brainchild of Gillian Tully. Now in its second year, Gillian has done a remarkable job of organising this event.

    The finalists were met, videoed and introduced to each other.

    At 10.30 we had a Pitching session with Sam Snape, screenwriter, tutor and script doctor.

    At 1.00 it was time for us to give a 2 minute pitch to 6 judges.

    Then at 7.00 pm the three winners were announced.

    Sadly my script was not one of them – boo hoo! However, I really enjoyed the day, benefitted from Sam’s pitching session and enjoyed meeting the other writers.

    Look out for Film Expo South in February 2018.
