Austin Film Festival or Bust

Hey there, Everybody.

This is me standing on the side of the highway with a cardboad sign saying Austin Film Festival or Bust.

I am a talented screenwriter who is working toward making this my career. To find out how I've been doing this and why I'm a super awesome woman, check out my blog at 

This year, I have made the top 15% in the Austin Film Festival screenwriting competition. Yay! I want to take advantage of that distinction by going to the Austin Film Festival in Austin, Texas, October 23-30. There, I will make industry contacts, expand my network, and soak up knowledge like a sponge. 

If my fabulosity is not enough to get you to reach into your pocket I'm also offering some kickbacks. Most of my friends are poor so I kept the prices low, but for god's sake if you want to give me more money consider my bank account open. 

I'm also open to negotiating for other products, work, or favors so feel free to contact me on twitter @billiejeanvk or email [email redacted]

In exchange for sponsoring my badge, I will be doing promotional work for Hollywood Breakthrough. But I still need help with my hotel and travel expenses. 

Take this opportunity to grab onto my coat tails, people, because if I can get top 15% with my least commercial script, I'm going to the moon.
