This is a 1+6 Week Challenge.   First 11 pages due in one week.  The remainder due six weeks after that.

Theme:  A man/woman's life is turned upside down after purchasing a smart phone that is supposed to go to someone else.  
Genre: open

Due Dates:
First 9 – 11 pages (no more than 11) are due March 15th at 10:00 pm edt
Complete work due April 26th, at 10:00pm edt

Submit them here: http://www.simplyscripts.com/unpro_short_exercise_13_03.html

See below for further clarification.


Most Americans know the story of the "Lost Colony"¯.  It dates back to the time the Europeans began to settle on the land now known as Virginia.  The village of Roanoke was one of the first English colonies to be established on the soil.  But it didn't turn out quite as successful as the colonists had hoped"¦  

The Governor of this hamlet was a man by the name of John White.  The small population of Roanoke complained about their lack of food and tools.  They also harbored suspicions that the Natives might launch a surprise attack on them.  These complaints eventually spurred John White to travel back to England, in search of weapons and supplies.  He returned three long years later.  

Upon his homecoming, John White found a ghost town.  The area "“ once a thriving village - was stripped of its people.  Houses and other shelters were nowhere in site.  What was left behind were small cannons, an opened chest, a tall fence built around the perimeter, and a single word inscription carved on a fence post: "Croatoan."¯

This, of course, has absolutely nothing to do with the challenge.

For those of you unfamiliar with the OWC, TWC, 7WC or any other WC's, the idea behind it is to see if the good people here can write a script based on someone else's criteria.  

If you had a week to write a ten-page horror script that took place in a nursery, could you do it?  What if you had seven weeks to write a rom-com set in the International Space Station?  Could you do that?

Well, could ya?  Could ya?

Anyway, the challenge starts tonight.  Continue reading for the rest of the rules and the specifics for this particular challenge.

BTW, do not click here.  It has nothing to do with this challenge.  So, don't click here.

Anyway, without further adieu "after all, why put off tomorrow what you can do today" the challenge will be a seven week challenge.  

You have seven weeks to come up with a feature length script (between 90 and 120 pages).  The first nine to eleven pages, however, are due next Friday, March 15th, at 10:00pm edt.  Just finish the scene at this page length.  Cutting it off in mid-sentence and leaving us hanging is soooo uncool.

Submit your first ten pages [url= http://www.simplyscripts.com/unpro_short_exercise_13_03.html]here[/url] before 10:00pm est next Friday, March 15th .  Don't submit the first ten if you can't commit to the whole challenge.

The completed script is due on Friday, April 26th, at 10:00pm edt.  Submit your completed script [url= http://www.simplyscripts.com/unpro_short_exercise_13_03.html]here[/url] before 10:00pm on April 26th.

The genre and theme to this competition will be announced in a moment.  But before I do, I just want to go over a few rules and other fascinating facts:

Participation in this is voluntary.  If someone's holding a gun to your head and making you participate, call the police;

Unlike previous challenges, this one will not be anonymous.  Your names will be on your work from the get-go;

There is no betting on this challenge;

No piss-takes.  At all.  Violators of this rule will be summarily executed by duct tape, electricity and Cheetos.  Not necessarily in that order;

I've lost ten pounds on the Atkins diet and I feel great;

The genre for this particular challenge pretty flexible: comedy and/or action and/or thriller.  You decide;

The first ten pages (or so) will be posted at Don's earliest convenience;

If you don't like the genre/theme of the challenge, post it on your damn Facebook page.  Don't whine about it here;

There will be no voting on the best script.  This is not a competition and there are no winners (though, technically, we all win when we have fun);

The theme is:  A man/woman's life is turned upside down after purchasing a smart phone that is supposed to go to someone else.  You can make up your own apps for said phone, but they have to be realistic.  No jet pack apps or death ray apps.  Thank you very much;

Can you believe it?  Ten pounds on Atkins.  I'm also using raspberry ketone pills.  They boost your energy and help you burn calories and stuff.  I first heard about them on Doctor Oz.  I like this guy;

If you have any questions, write them down on a piece of paper.  Roll that paper in a tight ball and throw it out.  You'll be glad you did;

If you don't know what the challenge, genre and theme are, it's because you went straight to the bottom without reading all that I wrote here.  You suck!

Good luck!


Phil

as the moderator of this thread, I thought I'd unblock you to see if you had anything significant to say.  I see I made the right decision in blocking you.

You've expressed your opinion and you won't be participating in the challenge.  There's no need to comment here anymore.

Phil,
Are you seriously going to moderate this thread in this way?

Jeff said nothing worth deleating ...but you did..

He simply expressed his opinion.

Why should Jeff--who has no intention of participating in the challenge--be allowed to run around like a spoiled child?  Attacking me for personal reasons?  Maybe he should dedicate more time into writing scripts that interest people than being disruptive.

How about everyone takes a step back...

Everyone here has a common goal in mind and that is to have

his or her's work noticed.

It's not worth a red cent at this point in any of our careers to go around

Attacking each or trying to "one up" each other in order to gain the attention of

someone "larger" than our community.

We may have huge differences in our over all take on what we perceive as basic script construct, format, ect...

By bitching at each other here, all we are serving up to those looking for the next great writer is, amateur site...nothing here to see...

Anyone else get this?

Seems you all had fun whilst I slept off the night before.

Ok, back to business.

Any genre - good

Topic/theme - a man or woman life is turned upside down when they get hold of the wrong phone etc etc i Reminds me of Greg's OWC script a while back.

Now it says, PURCHASING. I hope this part is not too strict as the method in which the person receives the phone could be quite important.

Ayway, I quite like that, open enough.

Let's get a thinking.

The 'purchasing' part has me worried too.  I thought it would be easy to work out how someone ended up with another persons phone but having to buy someone's phone?  I can only picture a dodgy pub and a Pikey selling it under the table lol.  I can't see how a phone is made for someone else, aren't all phones the same?

You had a character called Pikey as well - how strange!

Joking aside, my initial thought does not involve buying a phone, but another 'top secret' way, like he finds it! Or she of course.

No time unfortunately to devote to this.

However, further to what Allfy said: (jeepers, that sounded formal i.e. the 'under the table stuff' - if you look at Ebay, people are often selling phones given as gifts/'pre-loved as new' etc. Or, you could buy one retail that someone returned to 'easy to return' shops, and not know it's been used until you happened upon something when you start using it... or someone desperately wants it back & they're on your tail!!

Or it could be packaged up perfectly, & then retailer tries to pass it off as new, then there's pre-testing of phones before they're even up for sale i.e. some internal conspiracy where someone was meant to get a particular phone and dumped it.

I'm sure if you let your imagination go, there's a lot of stuff 'purchase' could mean. I'm not up for the duration of this challenge, but I think Phil did very nicely with this rather broad theme.  Just a few thoughts. Be interesting to see what you guys come up with.

Don't let the phone bog you down - it's your inciting incident but from there you can take it wherever you want.

My initial thought was of some kind of time hole a la http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goodnight_Sweetheart_%28TV_series%29 which would give you plenty of mystery and ability to weave in a story like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frequency_%28film%29 nothing wrong with adapting existing films!

Lots of potential here for the SSers to develop something both commercially appealing and creatively interesting.

I'm out (waaaaaaaay too much to do right now) - but I did want to weigh in and say I like the concept in general.  There's plenty of freedom to choose one's genre:

It could be action (someone gets a spy's phone)
Rom-com (there's a contact on the phone that they fall in love with)
Business -thrller (there are corporation secrets on the phone that someone wants back)
Horror (it's a serial killer's phone, and there's evidence on it that the killer wants to erase...)

Etc, etc.  Just throwing ideas out there. Anyone wants these, feel free of course!  And it's the sort of high concept thing that Hollywood likes, so that makes any good scripts potentially sellable...

Course, if suddenly an idea catches on fire for me, I'll think about it. But unless that happens, I'll just look forward to seeing what comes out of this.

You can be a little flexible in acquiring the phone.  But it shouldn't be a case of finding it on a table in the food court.  There could've been a mix-up at the phone store or something.

And phones can be upgraded with more memory and better batteries and stuff.  Why not run with it?

Keep in mind that no theme/genre will appeal to everyone.  But what if a director asked you to write (and you were to get paid and get credit for it and have access to a craft service table), would you be able to do it?

I really like the premise - plenty of possibilities and possible genres that it could be adapted to. I haven't written anything new so far this year, but this has my creative juices flowing and I'll tentatively throw my hat in the ring in the hope I can get something finished within the 7 weeks!

I'm way out for this.

But for the record, I was really looking forward to an OWC, as I think many members were.

This heme has been done to death in amateur scripts and bad movies.  It does not appeal to me in any way, but that of course is simply my opinion.

Best of luck to the 3 or 4 who take this challenge on.  The rest of us and vast majority of us will just have to wait for a good old fashioned OWC.

I'll leave this thread alone now.


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Firstly, well done Phil for the very entertaining announcement of this ?WC – especially enjoyed the Rick Astley link and how you tempted me with the whole “don’t click here” approach.

Unfortunately, I’m going to have to bail out on this one but I do wish all that take part good luck with it.

It’s quite open and should lead to some interesting features.

In the last 10 page challenge, Don decided that if someone wanted to do  a short, up to 10 pages, on the same theme they could. Out of that came Kevin's decent short,  of Mice and Monsters, if i remember correctly.

It's not my challenge but I don't see why someone couldn't do this - there are no winners! ,or is that losers, whatever.

As the first ten pages are possibly the most important in a script, I think this is a worthy challenge, even if I decide not to take this further.

I have an idea...

Intriguing hook with your choice or premises, Phil.
But my current workload forces me to pull back from this.
I thought I could scrape together something for an OWC, but...

The lure of submitting to the Sunny in Philly producers is way too strong for me.
Gotta go after that white elephant.
Writing about that jolly bunch of deluded sociopaths? Oh, I'm in!

Thanks for running the event for the site, Phil.
I'll try to carve out some time to read the first ten of each player.
Hey, it's work related! I can justify it.
Already scooped up one OWC short to develop into a feature.

Have fun folks!

Regards,
E.D.

I thought it was the hybrid/simple addition option too.
So, I figured there'd likely be a bunch of "first tens".
But perhaps not all those gel, so there could be less completed features.

I agree, Bill. They’re very important and this could be in fact a worthy challenge even if you didn’t take it any further.

But Phil also said in the announcement:


Quoted from dogglebe
Don't submit the first ten if you can't commit to the whole challenge.


A lot of us I’m sure are already working on features so the normal OWC is a nice break. I certainly can’t commit to a 7WC – too much on at the moment.

It seems like some people have a problem with the "purchasing" part, but I literally solved that in two seconds.

My only problem - I don't know if I'll be able to fit this challenge in because of school work.

I'm gonna get to work on some papers and essays and then see if I can devote more thought to this later.

Good luck to everybody else.

Sounds cool, I already have an idea but afraid won't have time to write it. Too bad for me - I developed the idea as soon as I read this, that's big for me, usually I need to brainstorm and such. Good luck to all participant. I'll read a few.

A time travelling script could've been fun. Shame...

Kind of agree with Jeff here. I'm not getting anything solid at the moment but I'll most likely enter. Or at least try to.

Cool idea, Phil!

I have a lot of other deadline work over the next couple months but I'm hoping I'll be able to get something together for this. We'll find out in a week, I guess...

I don't understand.  Is it too boring of an idea?

I'm already coming up with ideas of gangsters, explosions, lots of guns, t&a

I'll try not to whine but, and this is just my opinion, the idea doesn't do much. It's not boring but basically a little bland. Judging from the comments though, I seem to be alone here.

I've got one idea that I'm juggling around with but it doesn't involve any gangsters or explosions! The theme isn't my thing but I'm still going to enter just for practice in case this was a producer asking me to write a script.

It's what you make of it, really.  I left it fairly open so everyone has elbow room.  If people can't come up with something, they're not trying.  When I came up with this, ideas raced through my head if I was going to participate.  Hell, I was dreamcasting my idea.

I remember people complaining about the old challenges because the genre/theme were too hard and that the scripts would end up being nothing that filmmakers would want.  I go the other way and people still have problems... and this competition could produce scripts that are very commercial and filmable

Oh well.  Can't please everyone.

As these aren't going to be anonymous we might as well be open with our ideas and see how we can help each other.

I have two and neither is giving me the feeling I can get it done in a week.

Excuse the crap loglines, this is all very rushed.

The Fourteenth Gland

An ambitious scientist is hunted by both the police and Russian mafia around London for a murder he didn't commit, and for an artefact he doesn't possess - something which is meant to bestow eternal life, called the fourteenth gland.

Genre - chase thriller

Problems - I feel I have  a unique hook for this, but it's a complicated script which I'm finding a bit overwhelming to put together - something that could just need longer to do.

Phone Buddy

When a socially awkward musician has a near death experience when he saves his new high tech phone, actually a secret service device destined to infiltrate an unknown drugs ring, he discovers the phone has come to life. Against his wishes, it's now his new best friend and it wants to party, whilst the secret service think he's the gangster.

Genre - slapstick comedy

Problems - I feel this is easier to do, but maybe a little light weight.

Ok, they're a bit different

As Steve pointed out, there is a request that if you enter you carry on, which I find a little off putting.

Happy to consider other writers ideas and share feedback.

Time will tell.

Well,

For the fourteenth gland, why not stick with one good guy and one bad guy. Also, make it into a murder. Keep it simple. lol.

For Phone buddy, you're trying to cram too much info. Follow what Babz said: noun + verb + irony = logline. One of the best things I've learned from her.

Hope this helps,
Gabe

That's what the point of the 7WC has always been. To help each other out. Share what you're writing about, ask for help when you are struggling, hold each others hands and help finish the script.

I like that name Phone Buddy, Bill. Very cool name. Definitely has commercial potential, IMHO. Not sure I'm too keen on the premise, though. I think you'd be better off substituting the phone for an actual character. Might be a little too wacky otherwise.

I like this one. It has the potential to be a generic thriller, but I think the sci-fi angle makes it original. Not sure I'm loving the title, though...

I like this one, especially the title. I'm not sure about it being slapstick, but that's just personal taste.

Thanks folks

I think that IF I enter, and this is looking unlikely now, it would be for phone buddy. I just feel too lost with the other.

For others considering an entry, feel free to raise questions for feedback as this not anonymous, or a competition.

Strange, Bill. My original idea was about a sociopath who receives a phone that starts talking to him and tells him to commit murders . Maybe it's a sign you should go with Phone Buddy, although I do like both ideas.

For mine, I'm thinking I'll name it "Memories of a Forgotten Love". 7 pages in, after I finish the first 10 I'll try and think of a log.

I'm not feeling your logline, nor the others' either.

Okay, I'd get rid of that for starters-- you don't need it.  Then re-work the second half of it.

Yeah... it's definitely not my final log, but I wanted to get the basic story across. Just wanted to know if the story itself was good. But then again, maybe I was too vague.

Thanks for the input.

Was thinking of entering with:

Naughty Claws

A stuck up business woman mistakenly buys a stolen phone from a dodgy pawn shop and is suddenly thrust into the life of an unconventional Angel, where mischief and mayhem take their toll in her pursuit to achieve a set of wings.


?? If I can figure the whole story out in time.

Yeah, at this stage loglines are a work in progress, this sounds more like a comedy-- but what I like about your approach -- having the woman purchase a cell at what appears to be a rogue pawn shop.  As I was mauling over ideas, something like that --never crossed my mind.  I almost wished I had thought of it.

I think the idea could work but would be lots of work to make this (seemingly) simple story interesting.

Definitely original but like Ghostie mentioned, it sounds like a comedy - which might not be your intent.

Finished the first 11 pages, excited! Know where my story is going. But this may be one of the hardest features I've had to write. The story is non-linear and spans across three decades as we follow a man through four key moments of his life. Haven't got a log yet but I think I'm going to break some of the rules to convey the story.

Dena - Dead Cell - good title. I trust this has a dark element to it.

Mo -"Memories of a Forgotten Love". Not sure what this makes me think of, almost a love story during war times. Sounds drama rather than sci fi, or horror etc. Interested to see the log

crooked - It's Not You, It's Ryan

(or any other first name that will work. I haven't really settled on one).

A man who works at lost and found in an airport comes across a cellphone that belongs to his wife's lover. He digs deeper, only to find the man his wife is cheating with is a total weirdo, maybe even a stalker.

wasn't sold on the title. I liked the set up with a lost and found. Not sure how he knows the phones his wife's lover, but thats for you to work out. Could the person work at the airport, with a dark past - link it into his job as well. Maybe both he and his wife work at the airport and the lover is after the wife for some reason - e.g. importing weapons??

just thoughts.

Bflywings - Naughty Claws

A stuck up business woman mistakenly buys a stolen phone from a dodgy pawn shop and is suddenly thrust into the life of an unconventional Angel, where mischief and mayhem take their toll in her pursuit to achieve a set of wings.

not hows she mistakenly buys a phone from a pawn shop, but i like the idea that it comes from there. i agree, it sounds like comedy, even the title with the naughty element.

Yeah, it's a drama like you first guessed. No war luckily because then I'd have to do a load of research! But it's a kind of love story.

I'm seriously considering coming out of hiding for this. Even if I don't make the timelines, coming up with a believable and logical sequence of events for someone to purchase a phone that could cause trouble was quite easy (personal experience is the best teacher here). Blew it up into a thriller plot over the course of a few minutes.

Like I said, not sure how well I'd meet the time frames, but the idea could be worth finishing.

Dark Line

Sinister Contact

I'm sure there are a few others, but those are ones I just quickly pulled out of the air (i.e., my brain).

What about a variation of...

A/The        High/Higher/Highest         Call/Calling

I like 'The highest call'.


As for the challenge itself, I have a very basic idea, I'm just not sure I could write a feature in 7 weeks. Or 6 and a half as it is now.

I don't have a title, but the logline will be something like...

A training martial artist accidentally buys an assasins phone and must figure out how to save the final target.

It would probably be martial arts, action, comedy.

I am in the middle of writing something else right now, but I had a couple of ideas that were milling around in my head that if I did write might revolve around something like:

Blown Connection

An American missionary in Israel is conned into buying a suspect phone by a terrorist, and his first use of it causes a massive explosion that not only kills the U.S. vice-president, but several key terrorist leaders.  Now he is on the run from terrorists, the Massad, and shady covert U.S. operatives, and only one person can save him--(still in development!!)

Off the Grid

When a geocaching fanatic receives a sat phone intended for drug smuggler, he discovers coded messages in the phone's memory that could lead to one of the greatest treasures known to man--but only if he can escape assassins sent by a Mexican drug lord to retrieve the phone.

By the way, geocaching is a treasure hunting game where you use a GPS to hide and seek containers with other participants in the activity.  

Both are still rough works, and I can't decide which way to go.  The biggest challenge is just finding the time to write it all.

I like this one, as long as you keep it from being too similar to many other stoner movies. The "Satan" angle helps.

I got nothing for the title. I'm horrible at titles.

I like this one. I don't really have much to say about it... Martial arts and assassins?!


Quoted from hawkeye
Blown Connection


This looks like it could work, but I worry you'll run into a lot of potential plot holes if you aren't careful. First: who would even want to sell him the cellphone in the first place? What's the motivation?

Not to mention you would have to do some research on the locations/etc. unless you're familiar with this kinda stuff already.

This one is decent, but aside from the geocaching angle (I didn't even know what that was before you told me), it's not that different than a lot of other ideas here.

My two cents.

Will, thanks for the feedback--I agree it would take a lot of research for something like that, which is why I might consider moving it instead to the U.S. and making the terrorists U.S. based.  The motivation for selling it would be to shift blame to another person or organization.  But that needs to be thought through.  I may be unable to pull this off before the challenge ends, however.

I agree the other one probably needs a change of direction.  I like the geocaching angle, because it's easy to incorporate the phone angle.  Maybe the guy starts finding bodies--victims of a serial killer.  That might be a little different.

Blown connection - that looks complicated to pull off, but a decent basis of a political thriller

Off the grid - like the geocache angle, but the greatest treasure didn't seem to fit

M Alex - all I would say is that the title should really have the stoner element as this will drive the humour - it needs to sound like a comedy.

The like the "average guy finding bodies" part. That's not something you see a lot in serial killer scripts.

Help please

I'm seriously running out of time and chances.

I'm going with my idea, Phone Buddy. What I could do with is example films where...

# A character or thing, animal, comes to life - by magic etc

# It turns into a buddy movie

# The characters clash like hell - chalk and cheese

# but it can't go on - ie not men who become mates, eg Planes trains automobiles

I feel as if there should hundreds of these but I can't think of the now - long day.

I still get random calls from L.A. on my cell phone from some guy trying to talk to me in Arabic. I've told them several times that I have no idea what they are saying and that they have the wrong guy. Course, they could be concerned about the fate of their missing compatriot and be tracking me to find his whereabouts. That would explain alot. True story.

Quoted from JamesTheJudged
A Written Descent


I think this could be cool. I like the idea of a writer becoming more and more deranged as he uses grisly pictures of a killer's victims for profit.

Thing is, writers generally aren't that interesting on screen unless you are one. I'm not saying not to use a writer... you can pull it off, but you have to make sure you're making him interesting enough for non-writers.

And, I'm unsure how he could get inspiration from pictures. You can find that kinda stuff online... besides, how would you base a script/book on some pictures of gore?

The general idea is good, it's just the motivation isn't really there yet.

I was thinking of the main character having family troubles because of poor sales on his only published book. The character is distancing himself because he feels he isn't good enough for the family, not being able to financially help them.

Also, hopefully the script will be able to evaluate whats in the pictures that make them so different

What's wrong with writing a writer? I was under the impression that if you can make the audience or reader care about the character then their career isn't going to be this blockade saying "I don't care about them because they don't have the same job as me." I'm just curious if someone can tell me the problem here. It's just that the fact he is a writer plays into the rest of the story I have planned and it affects the characters around him. Tell me why!

#1 It's overused to have a writer protaganist.  Think about how many stories there are about writers.  IMDB lists 2011 entries searching on the keyword writer.

#2 It's cliche to have a writer solving a mystery think Murder, She Wrote or Castle to name two based on this premise.

Of course, if you want to write about a writer, I'm not going to stop you -- but I do think it's a mistake.

Hope that helps.

After I think of a good logline, I'm going to be sending the first 11 pages in, maybe even work on another script if I think I'll have the time to write it into a feature.

I also fell for the rickroll. And yes, it also took me about 8 clicks until I realized how to get out of the page. The shame    Here's the idea I'm working on:

Bad Connection

A young woman's world becomes a living nightmare when she inadvertently buys a stolen cell phone that contains videos of brutal murders, and its original owner comes looking for his property.

Title: Contract List

Logline: A retired hitman intercepts his replacement's list of targets to use as evidence, making him the biggest target in town.

The logline needs work, but there you go. Wonder if I can write the pages before the Friday deadline.

Here's my thought thus far:

A pair of bungling, socially inept losers intercept a mind-controlling cell phone intended for use by a deadly and beautiful international assassin...

Action/Comedy

Like the line of thought discussed about the acquired cell phones containing pictures...a lot of potential there for deception (can't believe everything one see's in photos) and general chaos from interpreting information out of context.

There's also the possiblity of all kinds of incriminating evidences showing up, from celebrity affairs to gangster assaults and the like -evidence that people would kill to keep from showing up in the light of day.

The alien phone could be fun as the hero unravels the secrets of not only the phone, but the aliens and thier devious intentions.

When we do these 7WC, we are less picky about sticking EXACTLY to the challenge assignment. If you have a great idea where a cell phone is a big part of the story and then you write a great script around it, people will admire your work and be happy for you. No one is going to say you FAILED. It's not a contest, remember? Anyone who can crank out a decent feature in 7 weeks is a winner here.


Also, for those who don't know, my 7WC Blackout was picked up from here and will be released on various VOD platforms in May. In other words, it's better to write a GREAT script that interests filmmakers than worry too much about winning the readers choice for sticking closest to the challenge...which we usually don't have readers choice for these feature challenges anyway.

Quoted from M.Alexander


Title: Killphone

Genre:  Horror

So there's this guy who's a Verizon Wireless employee by day and serial killer by night.  Police catch onto him, try to accost while he's at work, he brandishes a dagger and they shoot him.  Turns out this guy's into Black Magic and right before he takes his last breath he utters a spell  and his spirit enters into a Droid X2 smartphone in a display case.


Next day, a college dude buys the posessed cell phone, and then anybody he calls ends up getting murdered by the serial killers' ghost or whatever.  Kind of a take on "Lawnmower Man", "Virtuoisty" and "Damn You Bruce".

I'm not gonna write it, but if somebody else is hurting for an idea be my guest

.


Why don't you want to write it? You write it and I'll read it. Howz that? I think it's a good one.

I don't know if my logline is going to stick in place or not, but I have the first ten and it feels like it works so far.

Title: Enter Your Problem

Logline: A long time employee  in sound technologies dares to quit his company when he learns that his smart phone and life are better off in the hands of a dead man.

Quoted from M.Alexander


Uhhh, not to be a stickler, but the logline clearly states the cell phone must be purchased.

A man/woman's life is turned upside down after purchasing a smart phone that is supposed to go to someone else.  

Sorry, Mr. Cornetto, it's a great logline, but it ain't gonna fly.    


One of the definitions of purchase is

To acquire by effort; earn

which most certainly fits in with a pickpocket lifting a cellphone from a person on the street.

So, no problem there.

It's a thin line. Purchasing compared to stealing. Yes, you can earn something by stealing, but if it came down to the wire where judges were doing their judgeramma thing, and if all things were equal between a few scripts, they might pass on it unless the story was superior. In the end though, story rules; not rules.

While I kept track of the thread, I can see why folks are choosing to pass.
I'm not feeling this either.

I'm already struggling with a cliched plot request
*and* a potential project on the side.

I still might squeak in, but alas, if there's no passion to it there ain't no juice.

13. Steve
14. Rene
15. Michael
16. Blakkwolfe
17. Sandra

I think that's everyone. Did I miss anyone?

Assuming we all enter and finish the scripts, we should (hopefully) get 17 critiques on our features + a few from those incredibly nice people who read the scripts regardless of whether they entered or not.

Yeah I'm in...not sure how cliche these are going to all feel. My phone isn't going to be purchased so maybe I'm breaking the rules a little. I never colored inside of the lines. I hope some others will stray just a tad to give us a wider range of creative scripts so it won't be like when we were all reading that last challenge.

No, no pisser from me.  I'm way out.

I don't think I'll have time to read any, either, sorry to say.

Looks like a great turnout, though, which really surprises me.  I'll be surprised even more if half of the peeps on the list actually complete a 7WC.  But then again, it would also surprise me if Dena writes less than 4 scripts in those 7 weeks.

Word of the day - "surprise"

So far we have:

1. Will
2. Bill
3. Chris(?)
4. Dena
5. bflywings
6. M.Alexander(?)
7. George(?)
8. ArtyDoubleYou
9. Gary
10. Jeff's pisser(?)
11. reaper550 (?)
12. James
13. Steve
14. Rene
15. Michael
16. Blakkwolfe
17. Sandra

I think that's everyone. Did I miss anyone?

Assuming we all enter and finish the scripts, we should (hopefully) get 17 critiques on our features + a few from those incredibly nice people who read the scripts regardless of whether they entered or not.


I'm not going to make the first part of the challenge, still developing the idea and my wife's playing virtual assistant for a producer which requires the computer. Count me out of this one, sorry if I got your hopes up.

Don't count me in just yet.  I'm still thinking about it.

Right now my full attention is on the ScreamCraft Competition.

I might - and I said might - jump in this last minute.

I don't feel like it'll be my best work, because I'm not that into the concept.

But I'll try my best if I enter.

I'm busy with a rewrite of another feature, but just like Dena, I'm a sucker for a challenge! Don't count me in or out yet.  I have a title.  Dead Ringer...yes it will be either a horror or thriller.

Sorry  - I'm out.

My week has been thrown into turmoil and its no longer realistic. Besides, my phone script was niggling me. I had a couple of great scenes in mind but I just haven't had the head space to take this forward.

Shame.

I still remain happy to give input to others and will turn my attention in the few weeks to my 14th gland idea.

The Elevator Belonging To Alice - Semi Final Bluecat, Runner Up Nashville
Inner Journey - Page Awards Finalist - Bluecat semi final
Grieving Spell - winner - London Film Awards.  Third - Honolulu

Okay, who here hasn't written any pages yet?

I'm still in. I feel a little obligated now (a good thing), but I know I'm running out of time. I think I'll change ideas. I struggled through three pages last night and my current idea isn't working.

I can still do this....

I've written the ten pages (yes I did go with a writer, I really hope the script will be able to work well with the character) but I need to think of a better logline. My last one did give the main idea but it didn't present the family descent that also happens.

I understand what Michael's saying, but I think things run in cycles. Even if it's overdone at present, it might work later on. Or, on the other hand, your spin might be perfect.

BTW, I love the title.

I'll read them all, or at least the first acts. Depends on whether or not the writer is a contributing member... and if they've at least read a few other entries.

ALSO, I'm psyched now because I think I finally have something good. A good idea, at least. No pages. I need to stop procrastinating. Starting now.....

Yay - 19 pgs done!

Nawazm11 and Ghostie: Yep, Naughty Claus (changed the title) is going to be a comedy. My first comedy - hopefully it's funny, if not - sorry.

Ghostie: run with the pawn shop if you can use it. It's a very minor part in my story. I also thought I might be able to do another story where someone finds a phone in a storage unit they bought at the auctions. Not gonna have time to do though, so your welcome to it if you want.

Sounds like some good stories are coming out. Is there a time frame for reading them? Cause I'm a very slow reader. It's gonna take me ages to get through all of them.

Plus - do the first 9-12 pages have to stay the exact same? Cause I have a habit of going over and over things and rewriting them. They might change a thousand times before the seven weeks are up - storline will stay the same though.

A Written Descent

Updated Logline: A writer is stuck on what to put on the page until he finds inspiration after purchasing a cell phone containing pictures of grisly murders and an unknown killer that leads to his family life and his sanity spiraling out of control.

Well, I've written nine pages.  I didn't go with either of my original ideas.  And it's definitely a vomit draft.  And if people were in the same room with me when they read it, they would be throwing sharp objects in my direction.  BUT, at least I wrote something!

I'm weird with the reading. I can sometimes read fast, but sometimes I'm very slow. I don't know what it is with me. It might be my editor's eye.

I would like to read all 17 (if there are 17) if possible because I just don't feel right in my conscience if I don't. That's not to say I wouldn't skim some if necessary, but I only feel it's right to provide something useful as feedback that is real to me and might help the author. I hate the idea of giving something a five and dime treatment. I'm just not built that way. Makes me a lousy business person, I know.

I  do feel that this is a wide open theme with loads of room for imagination. The fun will be in studying the scripts that are conjured.

I'm looking forward to the challenge whether I suck the big banana or not. The people here will provide more than enough energy, I'm sure.

My title...

My Mermaid, My Meat

Some random dude meets a really smoking hot Mermaid while hanging out in some ocean and falls in love with her assets, only to discover he's not the only one when she sells him her shell phone for a sample of his meat.

NC17 drama mystery horror slasher comedy action adventure - script contains numerous examples of unfilmables, unnecessary nudity and violence, and one Hell of smoking hot Mermaid, who likes to play.

I see you received my ether waves.  

It was a consideration to include the mythic sirens in my script, but they didn't have enough sex appeal-- half bird and all.

Mermaids are much more seductive. Mermaid sirens then. I'm waiting...

I love Mermaids!  They rock.  The Mermaid in My Mermaid, My Meat is very hot but also very goofy and...well...kinda like Darryl Hannah's portrayal of that Mermaid in that old Tom Hanks Mermaid movie.

But My Mermaid, My Meat's Mermaid is hotter, shorter (Darryl Hannah is kind of a sasquatch when her hair is all big), and more sexually attractive (to all sexes including asexuals) and promiscuous, in a silly, natural, more down to the sea way, and funny also.

I hope at least.  She just wants to be loved.

No, they don't.  I'm tall, but I prefer shorter chickies.  Perfect height for me is around 5'-1" to 5'-5".  I'm around 6'-2".

So when I intro the Mermaid in My Mermaid, My Meat as being 5'-2', please understand why the exact height must be stated, as it will come into play later in the script in a daring escape from a local marine water park involving several Orcas, dolphins, and penguins.

Sorry, crookedowl, but once you exceed 10 posts on a WC thread there's no backing out.  It's pretty much the same as signing your name in blood.  If you bail now it's equivalent to mutiny and punishable by law.   You'll be terribly ostricized and forever known as crooked ostrich".    It's a rule.  

Of course they don't tell us these things before we start.  Gotta read the small print.

I asked earlier if it would be OK if we could co-write scripts together for this.

No one got back to me.

I mean, if we could, I wouldn't mind throwing something together with ya last minute if you really want to enter.

If it's allowed, of course.

I'm still contemplating entering, honestly, and am going back and forth.

A writer is thrust into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse after he aqcuires a killer's cell phone containing damning evidence.  

Or "incriminating evidence".   I'll even be so bold as to suggest a title change: "Incrimination" or "Incriminating Evidence"

My 2$  worth

I may consider that for a future project (of course if that would be fine with you), seems like it could be excellent, but with what I've focused on I've been aiming for a more Horror/Mystery then Crime/Mystery with Horror elements.

Actually that was my loose translation and a condensed version of your previous logline.   In other words all I was saying it seems a bit wordy and could be edited down a bit more.  Check out that link for Babz Buzz concerning loglines.      


How about this, I'm not to sure:
A writer finds inspiration in a phone containing pictures of grisly murders and an unknown killer that leads to his family life and his sanity spiraling out of control.

A writers life and sanity begin to spiral out of control when he finds pictures in a phone of grisly murders and an unknown killer.

I don't know why I like using the word "grisly" so much.

Quoted from M.Alexander



Criminy.  Not sure if I'm gonna make the deadline.  I went all Robotard 8000 on my script thinking I was being funny and clever.   After rereading it I can see now it's a product of way too much caffeine.   I'm basically back to ground zero and slightly traumatized.


I don't drink much coffee anymore, but I much as you re-wrote the ten pages I started with.

We'll see tomorrow after I red line it again.

It seems that often scripts have a mind of their own and whatever it is they're saying, a person just needs to put up with it until some glorious resurrection of the dead takes place. Waiting for that.

So I'm about to submit my draft and noticed that the contest calls for you NOT to put your real name on the submission.  I was under the impression that everyone was not hiding their entry based on the fact that everyone has been sharing their ideas.  I'm fine with whatever is decided, but I guess I want to make sure I'm doing it right, as this is the first one I've entered and I'm traveling all day tomorrow.

What say you, Phil?  Real name on it or not?

Yeah, usually previous OWC's are anonymous hence the "no real name" next to the submission. For this, like James pointed out, write your name.

My thriller idea is coming together little by little (as I distract myself from three novels I should really work on). I have a basic plot, but no MacGuffin. My outline still says "MacGuffin (I'll think of this later)". Fortunately, I still don't really need to know what it is to write 11 pages.

I've just submitted the first 11. Well, here we go... If you need care and counseling, just call 1-800 I give up. If allz you get is a machine, PM me.

Noticing some peeps beating themselves up already, before their script is even seen.

Just remember that you entered the OWC and that in itself is an accomplishment. Nothing that you wrote was set in stone, so make the best of your feedback and rewrite if needed.

Well done to all who entered.

Following Mark, this contest is to help you write and finish a screenplay. Be lucky that it's a feature. IMO, it has more value than a short. That's just me (since I suck writing shorts...lol).

Anyway I digress, back to the matter at hand. Like Mark says, you can rewrite it afterwards once you get a satisfactory number of notes from peeps on here. Once it's all done, you'll have a feature under your belt that can be found and made into a movie (it happened to Pia).  

Everyone's good in my book. Reaper gets a bit more for that Danielle Harris pic. . lol.

I slammed out the first 10 pages as quick as I could.

I don't know if crookedowl wants to give it a quick rewrite or just submit what we have.

I have a beef and beer to go to in exactly a half hour and I won't be back until way after the deadline.

So....don't know what to do, guys.

It's not that.  I haven't heard from him since late last night.

I don't know what he wants to do with that 10 before we submit.

I'm going to be out past the deadline, so, I don't know...

I guess I should just submit it then?  Maybe he won't make it online fast enough tonight?

lol I dont know.

We will all help each other with notes.

And on that note...I just submitted my crap script! Happy Friday to all you writers!

Congrats to those participating. If I could jump in for the 6wc, I might. But time is tight. I'll try to read everything as it helps me as well (are these posted yet?). I know it's not perfect, but as long as it hits the basics (opening image to set tone, something to hook the reader in first ten, scenes with 'layers', etc), you'll be fine. I'm a big believer in vomit drafts that has back bone and that requires multiple surgeries/jolts of lightning.

I think I know what he means. The way everyone is talking about how horrible their scripts are, doesn't exactly make us potential readers excited about your scripts.

I also think it was a bad idea to post the first 10 pages of your 7WC feature here. Why? Because if your first 10 pages truly sucks here. Who's going to want to go back and read your feature when you post it. Just saying...

Pia and Jeff,

That's my fault. I'm one of the peeps who posted that I wasn't happy with my script. Just the opposite, I love my sript. Saying that, I know that my script was written in a weeks time and it's going to have its problems and I still have 6 weeks to go but I always get nervous when someone reads something of mine and I can feel my anxiety kicking in. So sorry to you guys and to others who read my posts. + I was a little drunk last night but that's no excuse.

Hey Dirk, I don't see what the issue was.

Everyone of these has writers spouting off how they don't like their script, think its rushed, could be better, hate themselves etc etc

The reverse logic says that if I promote my script it will be better?

Besides, the first ten of a feature is a greater challenge, IMO, than a short. This is a site for learning, so lets do exactly that - except I bailed out of course, but I will read.

Looking forward to seeing these highly flawed scripts.

Thinking about it, I am pleased with my first 10 pages.  

It contains goofy/raunchy humor - and a dose of viciousness to it.

It's not the best, but it'll do.

Also, I am looking forward very much to working with crookedowl and seeing if I have what it takes to co-write a script with another individual.

I think it's the old bait and switch maneuver.  We all bad-mouth our scripts to lower expectations, then bask in the glory when the great reviews start pouring in on our Oscar caliber efforts.  Except for mine, of course.

It would make it seem worse if the writer kept exclaiming how his script was the best script ever written. And usually if someone does chat up their script, it sucks major ass.

Although I do somewhat agree with the first 10 page statement, I think it's kind of beneficial for a new writer to get all the bs dealt with - so instead of writing a poor 100 page script, he'll only write a partially poor 100 page script.

One question for PHIL....

If others did not enter here with the first ten, will they be able to enter an entire script by the final deadline? Just wondered because I may write another one just for practice.

Dena,

I'm going to jump in.  If someone writes a feature on this theme as a 7WC, I will accept it.

Phil was going to go with a straight 7WC.  I asked him to do a 1+6WC in the hope that folks would be able to knock out 10 pages easily and be inspired to go the whole 6 weeks.

Your decision was correct in my court.

Had this been a straight 7WC I would have been too intimidated to enter.

The little ten/eleven-ISH pages were (to me) seductive in combination with the phone scenario that was laid out.

I'm happy to be working on what I'm working on regardless of the outcome; so yes, I think this was a very good choice. If anything gets people writing when they feel stalled, it's a good thing.  

Thanks for that,

Sandra
