Today, I’m leaving on a jet plane. In fact, I’m headed all the way to the East Coast for the 2015 New York TV Festival.
You may recall that I was one of the winners in this year’s JHRTS Pilot Script Competition. The “prize” was being selected as Official Artist in this year’s NYTVF.
Besides the few official public events announced, and some other Official Artist-related stuff, I have no real idea of what to expect.
All that I’m hoping for is to meet amazing TV folks. And I’m sure that goal will be easily fulfilled.
Speaking of amazing folks…
There has been some additional great personal/professional news earlier this week (that I shared on the Twitterverse).
I am one of the three “Mentorship Winners” in this year’s Launch Pad pilot contest (brought to you by the folks at Tracking-Board.com)!
Much like the JHRTS pilot contest, this “mentorship” process is the first time it’s happened (rather, the first time Launch Pad has ever offered this).
I’m looking forward to learning and exchanging about the television writing industry. Ain’t that what we’re all here for?
In the meantime, my bags are packed, I’m ready to go.
Whether during or after the festival, I’ll be writing some follow-up articles to retell my NYTVF journey from within.
Alex–Belated congrats on JHRTS and Launchpad! Glad to see good things coming your way.
