Some Things to remember:
1. We have a couple of first time writers.  I think they've done a pretty good job for his/her first submission.  
2. I read all of the early submissions and if they deviated from the "in and/or around elevator" I asked for revisions.
3. However, later scripts I didn't have time to read so, later entries may not adheare as strictly to the "in and/or around elevator"
4. In hindsight, I wish I had left them as they were and let the discussion board members decide.
5. There is one script that did and didn't meet the requirements, but it was a so out of the box interpretation of the theme that I had to include it.

Update: This "intimate" gathering had 36 entries.  35 scripts were posted.  One withdrew (but may go back in).

Wow.  Looks like a cr*pload of entries for what was supposed to be a smaller OWC.

As usual, these threads often grow too quickly for us to "see" everything.

Please notify your friendly neighborhood Moderator if you spot trouble brewing somewhere -- by PM or using the "report" button on the upper-right of the post.  Either way.


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

Expect that to drop by one or two once the reviews come back a little less positive than they imagined.

Why? Do people ask for them to be removed if they get blasted?

Damn.

Yeah, I'm with him?  Why would they do that?  So what if people don't like it.  They don't have to take responsibility for it since their name isn't on it.

I doubt mine will do well, being first time and all...


Please read my scripts:

I'm interested in reading animation, horror, sci fy, suspense, fantasy, and anything that is good.  I enjoy writing the same.  Looking to team with anyone!

Thanks

Still though, that's no biggie!

If your script sucks then suck it up lol, people had a week to write a story set in an elevator only... that ain't for everybody and it certainly wasn't for me...

No skin off my back if people say it's garbage, it wasn't something I'd normally write about anyway.

Depends how seriously you take yourself I guess...
