Quoted from DanC



What throws me off is the series related bottle, which are done in series.  This is a stand alone with no real purpose other then to be a stand alone with no direction.

It's hard to think of something good to great, in 5-12 pages.

Dan


Dan,

It has been explains twice before and perhaps you are not getting it.

Let me emphasize the challenge,

Write a script between 5 to 12 pages that takes place in and/or around an elevator. Low/No budget.  

That is it.  This challenge has nothing to do with any series or any bottle.

Quoted from Grandma Bear
I haven't written a OWC script in a loooong time, BUT...I got it all planned out last night. It came to me like a homesick puppy. So, I'm in!

You know it will be dark. Some, or maybe even loads of violence. Sex. Well, duh! And, of course a twist!...Or maybe it'll be a nice little childrens' story. Or old people stranded in a stuck elevator while one of them is dying. Or maybe a gay comedy. You just just never know!   MWUAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

I got some ideas rambling around. Finding a logline is going to be the more challenging. I can say that peeps are going to hate me for writing my entry, and thus might hate the script too. What else is new. The way things are looking though, I'm actually considering to ask for possible collaboration, because I want this thing to be that much better.,

Are teamups allowed in this OWC?

I finished mine, guys! Will tweak during the week, but feeling pretty good about it so far! I love shorts! I miss them! If someone would just pay me to write shorts all day, I'd be in heaven!

Dan, yes, I appreciated your suggestions for SLEEP. I got a LOT of suggestions from people and I think in a way, that actually messed me up. <it made me doubt my own ideas and brought me to a halt. I'm taking a break from it for a couple of days to finish this OWC and my conspiracy thriller.

For what it's worth, everyone LOVES the concept of SLEEP! It's a winner, I know it, if I can just get it right.

But no teacups? Darn!

BTW

Quoted Text
"There is no genre restriction."


Be careful how that can be interpreted.  
Anyway, as for my entry, if anyone is still having troubles and wish to add to my own,   message me.  
Just know who you will be dealing with...
But I'll need to know by Tuesday if you are in.

I've written three high concept ten-page TV ideas and synopses during the past week and am writing another. Not sure I have any creative juice left. I'm well due a week away from writing so may have to back out of this one.

I doubt I could manage that if there was a gun to my head. Especially if someone else was holding it.

I have thought of three ideas for this elevator business though. The first was rubbish. The second was dull and third was frankly appalling. So, the usual type of thing then.

Ho hum.

Oooh a OWC! I've not taken part in the last few of these and miss them. I'd like to write something new, for the past few weeks I've just been doing re-drafts of old scripts for various film festivals and competitions.

Wouldn't it be nice if we had an official pisser contest for a change?

The OWC normally gives me some great inspiration but the openness of this is currently drawing a blank in my mind. However I'll have a think and see if I can come up with something.

Best of luck everyone, I look forward to reading these.

-Mark

No teacups?! But I had it all figured out...

Thriller - After holding a speech about their experiences in the war on Remembrance day, two grumpy old Englishmen end up stuck inside a broken elevator in a building that's not set to be visited for 7 days. Paranoia breaks out when they find out they only have enough tea to sustain one of them for a week.

I'm going to make a prediction that the OWC will have a lot of restrictions next time around. And, I think there'll be a ton of entries this go round, - a large proportion of them, horror.

Agreed. I'm predicting that there will be a fair share of thrillers too.
