I hear rumors that mockumentary ain't it. The OWC will be determined by a bitter old man with a sci-fi script that no one has read....
Pia, is correct on nearly all counts. But which one? hmm.
Here the is the announcement.
The October One Week Challenge is coming up!
For those of you unfamiliar with the One Week Challenge, it's an excercise to see how well you work under pressure. Imagine of a director came up to you and asked you to write a short script based upon an idea that he/she has and you have one week to write it. Could you do it? Of course you can.
The rules for the challenge are:
It is free!
You have one week to write a twelve (12) page (or less) script
The script MUST be in a generally accepted screenplay format.
Do not put your name on the script. For the first week or so, the scripts will not have the writers' name on it so no one can pick favorites.
Remember this is a Challenge, not a contest - there are no prizes.
No Gambling NOR running with scissors
