Looking forward to the location being announced as a rectum and the object a bag of sprouts.



Remember, this is fiction, Mark.

Just saw this.  Hope I can play along, but the timing ain't good, as I really don't write on the weekend, but we'll see.

3 pagers aren't my idea of a script, either, but like Pia, I'm always up for a quickie!

3 pages just ins't enough for me to invest time into a story. But that's totally fine as I know some people can. I'll be out but will try to get in some reads all the same once they are posted.

Best of luck to all.

Last time I wrote a 3-pager I asked the director if it was OK if I had 3.5. Technically, 3.5 isn't 4 and is still 3. It was OK, but in the end, those 3.5 pages ended up running for 6 minutes.

If dialogue is kept to a minimum, 3 pages can tell a lot of story.

I have written a few one pagers. I think they were all pretty good. It can be done.

Not trying to mess up your thing here, Mark, but unless the parameters are released today/tonight, I won't be able to play along.

I will do my best to read and give positive feedback, though.

Seeing as a bout of carpal tunnel has knocked me out of work for a little while, I just may be able to slowly tap away on the keys and make the deadline.

I won't start earlier cuz some people might not notice the change in time. But I'm not entirely opposed to extending the deadline to Monday. I purposely set it for the weekend figuring that's when people would have the most free time. Maybe that's not the case.

A normal challenge is usually 6-10 pages in 7 days and people manage that. I want it to be difficult but not impossible. What do people think? I'm willing to tack on one extra day. But I gotta hear some compelling arguments. Weekend skiing is not a good enough reason haha.

3 pages, 3 days sounds reasonable to me.

3 pages in 3 days isn't the issue at all.

For me, like I said, I don't and won't spend any time writing or thinking about writing on weekends.  Mondays, being the start of the week, are also tough.

No big deal.  I'll read as many as I can and we'll call it cool.

Yeah, no worries. Appreciate you taking the time to give feedback on scripts even when not in. And just think folks, if you write a script that's only one page, Jeff can't bail on page one!

I just got finished with the 48 Hour Film project, so I'm in excellent shape for this right now, and three days to write a script is much more reasonable than making a short film in 48 hours. I think a three hour challenge would be the real titty twister!!

We actually had a producer show up one time and asked for a script he could shoot that weekend. He had access to a hospital. Several SS members wrote scripts in just a couple of hours for him. Some turned out pretty good. My entry ended up being filmed, although by a different filmmaker. Sometimes, stress and adrenaline just works well with the creative mind.
