It's time.

Welcome to the June 72-Hour Challenge! Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to write a 1-3 page script about a character who is physically stuck/trapped and must attempt to find a way to free themselves.

Genre: Open. Go nuts and write something wild!

Budget: The lower, the better.

No pistakes. One script per writer, though I'm not opposed to writers teaming up.

This isn't a contest - it's a challenge. There are no official prizes.

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

Do not put your real name(s) on your script; this is an anonymous challenge. However, please use your real name(s) when submitting your script.

After the challenge closes you can either have your script removed or resubmit your script with your name on it.

(Don's rule)
Participants must read and comment/review in the discussion board at least 10 other scripts submitted or your work will be removed (no harm, no foul. I understand that life gets in the way).

Please put (c)2021 on your title page.

Submit your script here - http://simplyscripts.com/owc

Any questions about the challenge, post them here.

There will be a review page emailed to you for you to score the scripts you read. Please only give scores to scripts that you have read.

Please do not rate scripts in your review.

Interesting. Shouldn't it be 127 hours?  

I'm moving this weekend, but maybe I can squeeze an hour or so in somewhere to bang something out.

So when I think of physically stuck/trapped I think of narrow or confined spaces, but I suppose the person could be in an more open area but are prevented from leaving the area by a person, animal or object, right?


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.

Is shoving your junk into a hole in the wall and not being able to get it out fit the ‘crazy’ or ‘weird’ theme? Not sure I really wanna go the horror route this time around.

Title: Gory Hole

Of course, that’s inspired by the ultimate ‘trapped in a confined space’ scene of all time…

Great question! There can be multiple characters, but the character who is stuck/trapped can't receive any physical assistance from another character. Make sense?

Terrific idea, Zack!!

Ideas, ideas... That go beyond head stuck in a railing, and elevators.
Not that there's anything wrong with those, if they're good.

Gary's suggestion opens it up too - hadn't thought of that.

Hmm...

P.S.
There can be multiple characters, but the character who is stuck/trapped can't receive any physical assistance from another character. Make sense?

Ooh, now that's important.

Whew!

Working on it, but...
Three pages is tough.

Good exercise just for that I reckon.
