Sean, something beautifully intricate going on here but I'm a bit lost.

So, we select a pair of actors, right? Then what?

This is separate from the character-actor tournament?

I hope it is, because this one sounds more interesting to me than the actor brackets. (Though now I can't get the image out of my head of Christopher Walken and Christopher Llyod yelling at each other.)

Have no idea what you're doing, Sean, but good luck with this. Sounds like a lot of fun.

If I have time, I may give this one a go. Don't like the actor thing though... but I'm not a film nerd so don't know most of the names on the list anyway. Might know them by face, but, meh. I couldn't care less about any of them. If they died tomorrow, I wouldn't give an eff. In some cases, I might even cheer.

Interested maybe? But not quite sure what the parameters and time constraints are. Is this in lace oft he OWC or in addition to? Anything on the table for the winner?

I just ask as I landed a writing gig that's gonna monopolize most of my time for the foreseeable future and though I love participating and learning from these challenges, time is gonna be an issue for me.

The chance to win!

It's quite a coveted title. I write full time now, but I should still be able to find time for this. A lot of great writers here to compete against. That alone is priceless.

So, the questions I guess would be:

Do we have to choose a pair and stick with the pair we choose, no mix and match?
What's the page length?
Genre - I assume any?
And how long do we have, a week?

The last one is about the logistics of the tournament - the scripts will be judged within the divisions, right?

Not sure we're supposed to pick the actors or a pair of actors - there have been no parameters as of yet.
