About The Screenplay:
- Quarter finalist in the 2013 CWA (Creative World Awards).
- 2nd round qualifier in the Kaos Films British Short Screenplay Competition 2012.
- “Death Is No Bad Friend is a poetic script that relies on imagery to evoke a morose feeling. The language is very well-crafted, with the characters’ style of speech accurate for the time period. Because the descriptions are succinct but also written in a similar style, the script reads easily and quickly while creating clear images of the locations.” –Feedback from the 2014 BlueCat Screenplay Competition.
