Quoted from DanC


In  my crazy world, science was discarded for magic.  So, no physics, science, medicine etc.  Magic is the root of existence.


Magic was never in contention with science so would not count as a historical change. Try harder.

Johnny Smiles   (reply) Posted by: ZapTol
Date Posted: Today, 12:17am
Thank you, Tony. I was asked the same question recently. There are a few things you can get out of this story. One of the ideas is to show how being deaf can be sort of a blessing. How that disability allows Johnny to enjoy the sunshine while around him, seemingly healthy people are caught up in their evil ways. They try to engage him but are unable. The other idea is very close to the previous. Removing the deafness. Just the idea of taking the time to enjoy something as simple as the sunshine on your face instead of being caught on the other side. That "other side" does not have to be extreme violence. It could be petty stuff. It could be getting mad about spilling your coffee. Or just being in a hurry all the time. It could be ...

This is pretty crazy and can really be any genre, even fantasy.

I would just like to say, as seems to be a growing consensus, that while the validity of the alternate reality should be looked at in terms of “realism”, it should not be judged in terms of “likeliness”. Every script is essentially a personal opinion of the butterfly effect, how much does history change when certain events are altered?

So, if someone has worked out that no civil war between north and south would lead to a rebellion in the south between races and that would transform America into an ally of the Germans during WWII then it’s like alright I may not agree, but it could happen I GUESS.

If the same situation is looked at, and the script ends up in the year 2200 and jellyfish rule the world it’s like well that doesn...

Quoted from Dave
e.g., If Edison was never born would we really never have discovered the light bulb?


Considering it was already invented 10 years before by Joesph Swan I would say yes

Edison stole more patents than any human being more so from his genius sidekick Tesla

I'm with Dena on a page count.
I'm having trouble to come up with a good story that fits the limit. I guess there's not enough story in mine but it would be good for a short short.

Yeah. I’ve got you…

1. Admittedly, I think once I put it away for a few weeks to cool off I’ll end up fixing the small kinks. I’m just not seeing them right now. At 70 pages, I’m still missing like 30 pages? As my second script I’m proud of it - - it was a lesson. I'm going to overwrite next time - so it's easier to chop stuff. I'm also going to do simple narratives until I've mastered all these things.

2. I always thought it was only characters who speak?
I swear rules like that are superstition.

3. Ironically, I did in the first draft.
I think I stretched the Noah scene and others because I wanted to let the image linger.
Like you said - I want the reader to stop and register these people.
Also, you have ...

In regard Dena's comment, I think we all need to be more forgiving and just judge the stories on their own merits. In storyland anything is possible.

Quoted from MarkRenshaw
My script is going to start with Mark Wahlberg landing on Earth, only to find it is ruled by Whales. Then everyone will know the event I've changed is that Whales just learned how to breath air and took over the planet instead of apes.


Except - it has to be an event that didn't happen - not one that did. But it would be a whale of a story otherwise.

I think this challenge is so open that a lot of people are going to discount scripts based on IF THEY MEET THE CHALLENGE or not and everyone is going to have different opinions. Why can't we have a challenge that is simple with given location, genre, maybe an object or a character and a page limit of 5-7???????

Quoted from MarkRenshaw
I think with some stories, the event change won't be obvious, but I agree with what was said earlier by someone else, if we can't guess the event then I don't think that should be an automatic point deduction. If Jesus wasn't crucified on the cross and the story was set now for example. Sure, it may be obvious that this story is set in a world where a different religion (or no religion) exists, but how would the reader know this was because of an event didn't happen two thousand years ago?

However, I know you writers and I know myself. I suspect we'll all be working hard to put some obvious and not-so obvious clues in the script as to the event in question!


Can't enter this one - but:

Better IMO.


Quoted Text
I’ve used a few of them. I wrote “glamorous” image because that’s how I want it to look.
I kept it cryptic/efficient because I want to keep you reading.
The word “glamorous” sums up how LA should be portrayed.
But you are right that description needs to be exciting and specific.


The issue I had with glamorous was a nit one - and only as it related to freeway. Yes, fine with opening with glamorous shots - just didn't think freeway met the description - e.g., kind of like saying series of glamorous shots:

- A factory

In terms of keeping it cryptic - yes, it creates a quicker pace and I do find that enjoyable. However, there are instances where it sacrifices clari...

Okay. I’ve done another revision and posted it in the link above…

Eldrave1. You always give great insightful notes!

I’ve used a few of them. I wrote “glamorous” image because that’s how I want it to look.
I kept it cryptic/efficient because I want to keep you reading.
The word “glamorous” sums up how LA should be portrayed.
But you are right that description needs to be exciting and specific.

I had a quick look at the openings of other ensemble films like “Gosford Park” and “Magnolia” and “Traffic” for help. In the end, I used “Hugo” to revise the opening. It should be a like small movie. A day in the life. A snapshot.

We have this small movie that ends with Patrick’s p...

The no comment required option is fascinating to me. I get that perhaps the author doesn't want to reply to posts, and that's their prerogative, but thinking back to everything there is to learn from loglines to how the first 10 pages read, I would think it's invaluable to have access to the discussions threads have to offer.

Just a thought.

Whales do breathe air. So do all fish, come to that, they just filter it through their gills by stripping the air molecules from the water.

Also, if we believe evo theory, the earliest ancestor of the whale walked on land. So they went the other way as some animals choose to do.

It's likely that if humans didn't evolve, that every other creature would still be exactly where it is now in terms of intelligence. If anything it would be the other way around - monk...
