Liminality replaces Doe Woman

"Liminality" joins Creative Spirit roster"Liminality," written by Migizi Pensoneau (Ponca/Ojibwe) will be produced as part of this year's Creative Spirit script-to-screen lineup. This follows DeLanna Studi's withdrawal of her winning script "Doe Woman" due to unforeseen circumstances. Pensoneau's script was the first runner-up in the 3rd annual national short screenplay competition for American Indian writers.

According to InterTribal Entertainment director and Creative Spirit founder James Lujan, "While it's unfortunate we won't be able to produce 'Doe Woman,' we are looking forward to the oppotunity to work with Migizi, who is a gifted young writer."
Comment:  It's a shame Doe Woman won't get made. I was curious to see how it would turn out.

Liminality is a script I picked as a maybe. Therefore, I had a hand in selecting both of this year's winners.

Lujan assured me that Doe Woman's withdrawal had nothing to do with Russell Bates's laughable threat to sic John Landis on Delanna Studi. That's good to know.

Writerfella here --
But then again, we'll never know, will we? Lujan now is on the film industry's legal radar, he shall be scrutinized more closely than ever he could know, and THAT is NOT laughable. writerfella himself need do nothing more and HE is happy. And that is how matters should be. Ah, justice. Either you earn your place in the film industry or you never get one at all...
All Best

Right. Unless Delanna Studi produces her Doe Woman script, we'll never know exactly how laughable your threat was. Too bad, because I do so enjoy laughing at you.

Didn't you also say someone was going to sue Lujan for "forcing" screenwriters to sign away their rights in violation of the Writers Guild's standards? Now Lujan faces only increased scrutiny? In other words, you're backing off your previous claim? So noted.
