I've already seen from some comments that some people are looking for the stories to be about heat or cold. Pia said that does not have to be the case, heat and cold only have to feature in the stories somehow, the stories can be about something more.

Bear that in mind when reviewing and rating.

Quoted from ReneC

I'm guilty of that comment a few times and I'm sticking by them, although not DQ-ing anything.

The "Theme" is Summer Heat (Cold). It's not write a 6 page short, no dialogue. mention the temperature.  

What Pia said was:


Quoted Text
The heat or cold should have some effect on the story or characters. It does not have to be about the weather. However, simply writing that the sun beats down on the desert or that heat shimmers off the blacktop is not enough.


I've read a few where the only real mention of the weather is incidental. i.e., it does not drive the characters or the story anymore that if it were perfect 72 degrees. Pia gives an example of what is not enough and, from the first batch I've looked at - it was exactly that. i.e., not enough.

So, while not disqualifying any script, I am giving more credit to scripts where the heat/cold drove the characters, plot, etc. I think that's a tougher road and more of a challenge.  That's what I'm keeping in mind. That being said, obviously - to each his/her own.

I agree with Dave. The heat, the cold, need to be pivotal not incidental, to the plot. Not just a bit of shivering or sweating in the background.
