Current screenwriting student Stephanie Bast has had success with two of her scripts in competitions recently. Stephanie continues to have success with her script, FrankenFamily, while her new script Wash Your Birdie: 101 Things That Can Crawl up Your Vagina and Kill You gains momentum.
Winner – The Writers Lab NYC, 2022
Finalist Comedy – Catalyst Festival, 2022
Winner – Comedy, Creative Screenwriting Unique Voices Screenplay Competition, 2021
Wash Your Birdie: 101 Things That Can Crawl up Your Vagina and Kill You
Winner Outstanding Comedy Script – Catalyst Festival, 2022
She most recently attended the Catalyst Festival where she took home Outstanding Comedy Script, but more successful than winning was her ability to speak intelligently at panels and pitch competitions. “A huge shoutout to Cynthia Hsiung and her Advanced Showrunning Course. I was known at the festival as the ‘woman who asked smart questions’ thanks to her outstanding class. A great script can win some competitions, but knowing the world of this business can get it made.”
Congratulations, Stephanie! If you have a success story, we want to hear about it! Click here.
