Hi !
Can you put all your storytelling stuff into an organised Scribd presentation please, as this is one of the requirements for the IOR - that way Phil can check it easier without having to hunt all over the place...
Just to remind you again, this is what is required -
The Development
The Treatment
The Step Outline
The Premise
The Logline
Character biographies
3 Act Structure Breakdown*

Also, your introduction seems to have shrunk a lot! What happened to the resources you will be using?
