Quoted from Grandma Bear


I've read a few entries now and their comments.
Why do people comment on things like "this wasn't horror" "where's the warning?'...

Where did it say this had to be horror or there had to be a warning?????????  


The genre was young adult horror - that's where the horror comes in.  I don't understand why people are asking about warnings.

It only says that the two kids know the truth...and I guess that is in the vast array of interpretations of this exercise.   With it being my first screenplay...I am enjoying all of this as I think I have learned a ton of things.  I have also learned that everyone has a different opinion about some "specifics"...and that's okay too.

I for one certainly appreciate the input I am getting as it is a learning curve for me...just wish I had more critiques.   My pals and those opinions I respect on this site don't know which one is mine, so maybe when it is all over with I can ask you to offer your constructive criticism at that time...unless you get to mine before the end of the week *wink

It's been fun to read so many...and no matter how it turns out...I think this site offers a lot to everyone who participates.

Thanks again Don for the opportunity!

Guess it's an interpretation..."2 kids know the truth" - leads to them doing something about knowing the truth...like warning the town, or whatever.  Maybe there was some misinterpretation?  But if you know the truth about an "invasion", doesn't it kinda make sense that you'd do something about it?  That was my take on it for sure.

The horror part was right in the genre though.

I'm surprised people are asking "where is the hoax?" on some of these. As I read it there's only supposed to be something people think is a hoax, not an actual hoax.

I've not seen one yet that I'd point at and say "that failed the challenge". Some have emphasized different elements, but they are all in the ballpark.

As far as I'm concerned, MOST missed the mark completely in terms of what was stated as requirements.  If there's a hoax, that means that someone is saying something that others don't believe to be true...right?

If there's an actual "invasion" going on (like the requirements stated), a hoax means (to me at least) that someone is saying something about something going on, that no one beleives.  That's where the "warning" comes in.

Does that not make sense?  Again, I guess it's up to what you read into what the requirements were, but it's pretty clear to me. But then again...what make sense to me, doesn't always make sense to everyone ( or anyone) else.

Whatever people strived for, I think the actual story and writing is what is driving the critiques.  At least I hope that's the case.

Everyone that submitted a script in 1 week should be applauded.  That's the bottom line.

Congrats to everyone here.  No need to get all wigged out.

I think I know which one is yours, Countess.

It will be very interesting to see who wrote what...and for some...what the HELL was going through the writer's mind (just kidding!!!!!!!!!).

Looking forward to the reveals...

I interpreted a hoax to be a trick. So the scripts have tricks that everybody thinks are tricks, but actually they are real.

Invasion is one of those words that has a well recognized central meaning but it also has a wider meaning. The following definition from the internet catches it:
1. The act of invading, especially the entrance of an armed force into a territory to conquer.
2. A large-scale onset of something injurious or harmful, such as a disease.
3. An intrusion or encroachment.

So you’d have to try quite hard not to meet the criteria!

There we go then.

Looks like we could have written a YA script about a guy "invading" his girlyfriend.  She could have thought it was a hoax, but if he really "tried", it would have "satisfied" the definition.

Hmmm...where am I going here?  OK, enough...

Could be the water...or the vodka...not sure.

Let's set sail.  Ski season's approaching quickly. If I'm gonna go on a frickin' cruise, I need to get my groove on (and in)  and get off (and out) ASAP.  Snow's falling in the mountains, and I need to get me to a mountain mansion with a few of the rich, dumb, and infamous...

Where's Captain Cornetto when we need him?
