Welcome to the March 7WC!

You will have seven weeks to complete a feature screenplay based on the following parameters...

Your 7WC topic:

Change is Horrifying!

You will pick a relatively common, potentially stressful life event/life change and write a horror story incorporating that event.

The event itself, or the aftermath, must play a significant role. It does not have to be a ďbadĒ thing. It can be something positive, but you will focus on those inherent doubts, fears, insecurities, etc.

Here are some possible life events/changes: getting married, getting divorced, going to college, retirement, starting a small business, a death in the family, going bankrupt, moving, losing your virginity, hitting puberty, having a baby, getting diagnosed with Alzheimerís, losing your job, in-laws coming to stay.

This is not a full list. Iím sure there are quite a few more not mentioned here that would qualify. Hereís a chart of stressful situations that might give you some other ideas.

More than one participant may pick the same life event if they so choose.

Genre: Must be horror, May be combined with any other genres.

Budget: Any

The scripts are due on Monday, April 20th at 11:59PM EST and must be submitted to:
simplyscripts.com/owc


Additional rules:

This is not an anonymous challenge. Feel free to discuss and ask questions about your script along the way.

Your script must be a properly formatted feature length screenplay in PDF form.

It must be at least 75 pages long.

This isn't a contest. There are no prizes.

Free to submit.

Collaboration is allowed.

One entry per person (or one per collaborative group).

No pissers, please.

You can revise your script as many times as you wish up until the deadline.

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

Please put © on the bottom left corner of your title page.

Good Luck!!!


That rug really tied the room together.

One more thing, I might not be able to get around to answering questions until tomorrow afternoon.

After that, I'm free and clear!

Hell yeah! This sounds like it was made specifically for me.

Quick question, are writers allowed to collaborate?

And what is considered feature length? 90 pages minimum?


I knew you'd like it!

Collaboration is allowed.

You're funny, Kham.  
It's a bit like that, writing, isn't it? Do or die.

Horror? Noooooooooo...

It has so far taken me the best part of a year to write my feature - so chances of me being able to complete one in 7 weeks are slim. Still, I will give it a go and see if I have anything to submit at the end of it.
