Parsons Illustration’s very own Neil Swaab [Adjunct Faculty and creator of the fantastic comic “Rehabilitating Mr. Wiggles”] is currently a finalist for the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship in screenwriting. His movie script, EDDIE FANTASTIC!, was selected as one of the top ten of over 6,000 entries.
The Nicholl Fellowship is run by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (The Oscars) and getting this far is a very big deal. If you want to check out more info about the Nicholl Fellowship, you can read it here:
Variety also has a write-up here on the current finalists (including Neil):
The five recipients of the Nicholl Fellowship will be decided later this month. Winners get $30,000 and must write a screenplay in the next year.
Best of luck, Neil! Go all the way!
