Here is the timetable for the October, 2008 One Week Challenge.

October 10, 2008: The Topic is Release into the wild.
October 17, 2008: A 13 Page Script is due. (properly formatted) 11:59 pm edt on Friday 10/17
October 24, 2008: Who wrote what revealed.
October 31, 2008: Release of the iScript of the selected script.

This isn't a contest.  This is a writing exercise to see if you can knock out a good, 12 page script on the topic and genre selected.  It isn't a contest.  There are no winners.  (Well, if you take the challenge, you are, in effect, a winner).  One script is selected through a mysterious process to be audio performed.

But you never know.  There could be a dark horse genre and theme selector this time around.  It could be someone you'd never think of.  Someone who may have already posted in this thread.

It's an enigma, I tell you.  An enigma.  And only a select few are privy to it.

This year's genre is going to be mockumentary.  You can thank Pia for this idea.  Don has already approved.  Mockumentary.

The genre is being posted now so people will have some time to learn about how to write one.

Mockumentary.  Yessiree.  Mockumentary.

Considering we had horror for last year's October OWC, I doubt this one will be horror again. But, can we try and pick a theme that'll get us Simply Scripters into the spirit of Halloween?





Sean

P.S> I guess even if the theme is Halloween-less, I can still connect it to Halloween. Boy do I love Halloween. Halloween....


Halloween.

Actually, the genre wasn't horror last year... though people's reaction to it was.  It was the pumpkin carving one (I think the theme was drama).  That caused a shit storm of biblical proportions.

This year, if you don't like the theme (or the genre) of the OWC, then don't do it.

Might have to take part this time, if I can fit it in to my busy schedule. oh wait you're not meant to say if you're taking part are you...maybe I will, maybe I won't?

The July OWC didn't have an iScript.com selectee.  As for a winner, everyone who entered is automatically a winner as the OWC is a challenge rather than a contest.

So every time from now on when the genre matches a genre you have written in everyone just posts links to stuff they wrote instead of doing any actual research themselves?

It is a good genre because I have written a feature in it before. Now the theme is where it will fall apart.

I don't care what the selection is.

Your script can be about anything, but it must be called "Ass Blasters"


It would be an awesome day indeed to come to the portal and see "Ass Blasters" listed 22 times in a row.


The other option is a script about Phil composing a letter to Penthouse Forum.  Just think of the prime VO opportunity.

Dear Penthouse,

I'm just a regular guy, and never in a million years did I think that what I'm about to tell you could ever happen to me...

Those two examples are more than sufficient.  I don't think any other examples by anyone else will be needed.

Exactly!  It is all part of the script writing streamlining process.  No original thought, just repurpose what has already been written.

Dammit, Mike.  Thanks for totally freaking up the theme for the script contest for my new site "SimplyScriptsAfterDark.com"  

Phil, the cat is out of the bag.  We need to go back to the drawing board...

"Freaking" and "SimplyScriptsAfterDark.com" should NEVER, EVER be used in the same sentence.

You can see why I let the cat out of the bag.

CHERI doesn't use nearly as much petroleum jelly on the camera lenses.


Probably because their degenerate writers steal it for, uh, "personal" use.

Sean,  I'm not sure where you are going with this.  Could you be a little more explicit and less vauge?

Great idea, but perhaps guitar feedback and the sound of fire or an explosion and then quietly in the background, "Hack, hack, hack...".

Or maybe we could go with something a little more universal?  What do I know, I'm just a dumb American.

Yes it does.  If I have the theme now, I'll have twice the time to write the script than everyone else, or atleast an extra week to think things through.

I still look forward to a spanking....mockumentaries can be serious or comical.  You can count that as a comedy.

The page limit has never been overly strict from what I've seen, as long as it doesnt get out of hand.

Budweiser American Ale is a good beer.

That is all.

I don't know if you can get it in the US, but when we moved to Alberta from BC, we discovered Sleemans. At that time, the liquor stores in BC were government run, but in Alberta, they were owned privately. Maybe that's why they had a poor selection in BC way back when...

Anyways, if you can get imports where you are-- try one of their varieties.

Here's what they look like: http://www.sleeman.com/en/html/beer/index.htm

Quoted from Blakkwolfe
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.
