Read and commented, and again the standard here is pretty high in a challenge that I think threw a few people out of their comfort zones... thanks for running it Yuvraj!

Also looks like everyone stuck with straight drama which I'm actually quite happy about.

I wanted to participate in this one. The challenge looked liked a good one, but only had a few hours left when i noticed it was on.

I'll be reading the submitting regardless though. Interested in seeing what everyone comes up with.

Just dropping this back in there...


Quoted Text
Challenge: Depict a harsh, realistic, and emotionally stirring estranged relationship between the characters. NO GORE. NO EXTREME VIOLENCE.

Genre: Open. If comedy (of any sub-genre), it has to be sarcastic which highlights the tension.

Script length: Write 1-5 pages of properly formatted script.

Characters: Two main characters (between spouses [please go beyond this one], friends, siblings, colleagues, etc.)

Criteria: You HAVE to include a THIRD VARIABLE which can be a PERSON OR an OBJECT. The third variable can be the cause of the whole situation or the solver of it - it is entirely up to you. But it must be a VITAL part of the story.

Here's the BOMBSHELL --> The THIRD VARIABLE will be present for only ONE PAGE of the entire script.

One-page disclaimer: If you introduce the third variable on any page of your script, it has to be done and completed on that page only. NEVER to be SEEN again. So it's better if you introduce the third variable at the beginning of the page.

Of course, you can mention the third variable in your dialogs.

Locations: As many as you need. (Although, budget-wise you should aim for a single location)

Why the reminder, Warren?

A specific reason?

Turned out, the (strict definition of it) estrangement was more difficult than any of it. LOL

Read them all. Congrats to everyone that got an entry in.

Some good ones in there that fit the challenge, some good ones that work better outside of the challenge and some that really missed the mark.

Thanks for running this, Yuvraj (and Don as always).

I'm surprised people got this so wrong in some instances to be honest. I think it was the clearest part of the brief.

I think the two main character part is a little less clear and seems to be what's causing the most debate.

Always happens in OWC's though, lots of interpretation, it just depends how lenient people are on what they perceive the 'rules' to be.
