Nope. It's mock-turtle stewed in a broth of crocodile tears.

How about something along the lines of a sexy librarian type gets tapped to be the vice president to a wicked old grumpy guy? Oh, the hilarity that would ensue...

That wouldn't work. It's not plausible enough...

Keep in mind that a mockumentary can be serious or humorous.  Even if the theme is the basement of a kidnapper/torturer, you can find some jokes in it.  I know I have in the past...

I just love my work.

Make sure you go far enough south. You know you're at the right place when it gets hot and humid.

Hahaha...

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.  

  • Please do put © Copyright 2008 on your script!

  • Submission due: October 17th at 11:59 pm EDT

  • Remember this is a Challenge, not a contest - there are no prizes.

  • No Gambling NOR running with scissors


Be sure and visit SimplyScripts at 11:59 pm on October 10th to find out what the Theme and Genre will be.
    


The Schedule:

Genre and Theme announced: October 10, 2008

Submissions Due: October 17, 2008

Submissions posted to the site - Starting October 13 without names.

October 31st, visit SimplyScripts to read and hear the selected script.

One script will be selected by some as yet to be determined criteria (either I pick, I get a screenwriter to pick or some kind of voting) and it will be recorded (assuming the writer gives permission to have his work recorded and posted to the site for a month) in MP3 format by the fine folks at iScript.com.  



This One Week Challenge is sponsored by iScript.com - Lets You "Hear Your Script"

Scripts into mp3s! You upload a script - they record it using professional readers and picky sound editors - you download your iScript! Burn CDs, listen on your iPod, submit it to execs, producers, agents. Now people can hear your script while driving, jogging or relaxing. Click here to learn more! --

Nice!

After taking a break from writing for a little while (a full-time summer internship and my senior year of college wreck havoc) I'm excited to say that I should be game for this contest.

Don, thanks so much for this site (if no one has mentioned it lately).  You do a great job and your work is greatly appreciated.
