SHORT SCRIPT CONTEST Deadline February 18th

WILDsound Festival

I was very impressed with the customer service at WILDsound. I had a question regarding my entry this year and I was contacted back immediately. I like that in a contest. Also, I was given feedback from WILDsound on my script and what I received was extremely helpful and detail oriented and it assisted me greatly in crafting my rewrite. The feedback from Wildsound strengthened my script to the point where it’s placing better in other contests as well.

TV SPEC of the show THE BIG BANG THEORY by David Minaskanian

Being able to see the script performed by professionals. The feedback was very helpful and I highly recommend others enter the festival.

CAST LIST:

WOLOWITZ – Sean Kaufmann
KOOTHRAPPALI – Sasha Rajamani

Get to know writer David Minaskanian:

1. What is your screenplay based on the TV show “Big Bang Theory” about?

Sheldon’s mom visits for his birthday and accidentally reveals that his grandmother Meemaw passed away. Needless to say, Sheldon does not take it well.

2. How does this screenplay fit into the context of the TV show?

Sheldon’s grandmother had been mentioned for years but never made an appearance, so I wanted to keep in line with that. But now that she was just on the show, I think the script still works if you imagine it as a future episode.

3. This script has a lot going for it. How would you describe this script in two words?

Required reading

4. What TV show do you keep watching over and over again?

Saturday Night Live

5. This is a very tight, emotionally engaging and fun screenplay. How long have you been working on this screenplay?

I wrote the script in 2013. It took about three weeks, and I’ve been entering it in contests since then. It’s placed at the Austin Film Festival, the Final Draft Awards, and ScriptapaloozaTV, among others.

6. How many stories have you written?

Many sketches, screenplays, TV pilots, and spec episodes. One of my TV pilot scripts was recently optioned by producer John Murlowski.

7. What motivated you to write this screenplay?

I’ve been a big fan of “The Big Bang Theory” since it started. This was the third “Big Bang” spec that I wrote. Sheldon is a very unique character and I enjoy writing in his voice.

8. What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

I spent a lot of time on Sheldon’s speech at the end to make sure it was how I wanted it.

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Mrs. Fields Cookies

10. What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

Being able to see the script performed by professionals. The feedback was very helpful and I highly recommend others enter the festival.

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

For comedy, write what amuses you. If others like it, great. If they don’t, it’s not the end of the world.
