Well, we're down to the "Final Four" and it feels like the field is getting smaller and things are finally starting to come to a close. So, it seems only right that the same thing should be happening with your scripts. In this round, your characters will be confined to a car (or truck, for those of you who are obsessed with bending the rules. Let's just say "automobile"). With that said, it doesn't just need to take place in one automobile... I won't give you any story-based prerequisites besides that. Now, for the fun part...

In addition to your characters being confined to an automobile, and since this is the "Final Four", your script will be limited to only four characters (total). To make matters even worse, your page count must be divisible by four (4, 8, 12, etc. Seriously, if you go over 12, the quality might drop, considering the timeframe. I'd recommend keeping it to 12 or lower) and you will only be allowed to select from the four following genres: Horror, Thriller, Drama, Mystery. Good luck and have fun.

Simplified Rules:

Four total characters.
Page length divisible by four: 4, 8, 12, etc.
They must be confined to an automobile (no part of the script takes place outside of an automobile).
Can only be of the Horror, Thriller, Drama or Mystery genres.
Due Sunday at 11:59PM EDT.

In the opening he said:

Quoted Text

be limited to only four characters (total)


Which to me means up to 4

In the simple instructions he said

Four total characters

Which could mean either . I think it's 1 to 4 - just want to be sure

Well I wouldn't have guessed that based on the "up to" - thanks for the clarification. Felt dumb for asking - glad I did

Wow, I thought I was really going to struggle, but I sat down, opened my notebook, thought for no more than 5 minutes, and I already have a fully formed story.

Now I have 2 whole days to flesh it out.

I'm coming for you, Dave! Not going down without a fight

Is a dog, cat, alien, monster, ghost etc. considered a character, or just flesh and bone humans?
