Summer Heat OWC

Welcome to the July 2018 OWC.  Your challenge, should you chose to partake, is to write a properly formatted script 6 pages max, not including the title page.

The scripts are due on Friday, August 3rd at 11:59PM EST and must be submitted to: SimplyScripts.com/owc.


Genre: Open

Theme: Summer Heat if you live in the northern hemisphere. Cold weather if you live in the southern hemisphere.

Challenge: No dialogue

Skill challenge: At least one scene need to be clearly suspenseful regardless of genre.

There will be a Review Page E-mailed to you for you to score the scripts you read.  Please only give scores to scripts that you have read. Please do not rate scripts in your review.


Timeline:  Scripts are due August 3rd at 11:59PM EST.

Scripts will be posted August 4th.

Votes are due Sunday August 11th.

Scores will be posted Sunday August 12th.

This isn't a contest - itís a challenge.  There are no official prizesÖbut stranger things have happened.

You may submit more than one script, but be aware that we have some seriously good writers here. IMO, itís better to write one GREAT script than two or three mediocre ones. However, if you can pull it off, youíre welcome to.

You may also have a writing partner. Anyone that feels that's not fair should try to co-write at some point. IMO, it actually makes it harder.

You can revise your script as many times as you wish up until August 3rd 11:59 EST. Do not put your real name on your script Ė this is an anonymous challenge.  However, please use your real name when submitting your script.  After the challenge closes you can either have your script removed or resubmit your script with your name on it.

Participants are strongly encouraged to read and comment/review the other scripts submitted.

Please put © on your title page.

Best of luck and I hope everyone enjoys this challenge.

As some of you might already know, my very first OWC here at SS was in February 2006. It wasn't an official one since the January one had already come and gone. It was just put on by the members here. It was a no dialogue OWC and my first script posted here. I remember Mr. Z and Shelton took part as well, but there were others that I don't remember right now. I loved it and was bitten hard by the OWC bug. It also taught me to write visually early on. I've always wanted to do another no dialogue OWC since then. Don knew this, so here we are. Very timely too, I think, with the success of A Quiet Place.

The weather. Many places in Europe especially have seen their hottest driest summer on record. Places like Sweden, where I'm from, have forrest fires raging as we speak and farmers have to slaughter their animals due to lack of feed for them. Deadly wildfires in Greece and California, and so on and so on. I thought it would be appropriate to include weather in this OWC.

The hints:

Shhh...  = no dialogue

Cold in Oz  = weather in July

It will not be anime  = duh...

Bomb under the table  = suspense

Danny DeVito + Michael J. Fox  = both are known to be short

Math equation  = answer is 6, which is maximum pages allowed

Pia, do we have to write according to our hemisphere? I think you should allow either given that it won't take long to guess writers residing in the South i.e., not many of us.

Libby, the OWC in Feb -06 was an unofficial one. Also, back then they were a lot more low key. I'm not surprised they are no longer saved.

I would say, write in your hemisphere. You won't be the only one writing about freezing your arse off.    Besides, no one would rate you lower because you wrote it. We love you.

Actually, we're on top of the world, just inverted.  

I think CamC? dips in and out of both hemispheres. He could write hot or cold.
And I'm holidaying north towards the end of Summer so technically I could have it both ways too.

Just trying to throw you all off course.
Haha, now you'll never know.
That's if I'm even in.

Love the choice of no dialogue, and max six pages,  btw.

Exactly. Averaging 23/24 lately with cold mornings. Unless we travel down to the Snowies we're spoilt. You in, Stevie?

Yeah I have an idea. More to do with the drought. Itís really bad in some parts of Oz with farmer suicide.  Really bad. Yet our shit govt continues to send taxpayer money overseas

My son is going to Canberra tomorrow on a school trip. Later this week he will see snow for the first time and experience some temps below zero lol
