Genre:  Horror

Theme:  It was a dark and stormy night

Limitations: You only have three human actors - two male and one female. (adults who can play between the ages of 18 to 80).  One male is in a wheelchair.  All events must occur sometime between October 30th to November 1st.  You can't use the word Halloween.  Everything occurs in and around an abandoned, rundown house.  You can do anything to the house, except burn it down.


You must write a script (properly formatted) between 6 and 10 pages.  No more, no less (courier 12 point font).

The scripts must be received by Friday, October 15th at 11:59 pm e.d.t..    Please put "(c) Copyright 2010" on your script.  Note: This is NOT an anonymous exercise this year.  Discussion board members, please submit your discussion board name, also.   Scripts must be submitted here.  Please, only one submission per person.




For Rendevous: *

  • Horror Script
  • Dark
  • Storm
  • Night
  • Two males, one male in wheelchair
  • One female
  • Takes place anytime between 10/30 and 11/1
  • Deserted house you can't burn down
  • Can't use the word Halloween



This is only an exercise.  There is no prize for winning (after all, we all win if we have fun).  There will be no official judging for the best script (after all, we all win if we have fun).


The Schedule:  
10/8 - theme and genre revealed

10/15 - submissions due

10/17 - 10/20 - scripts posted

10/31 - audio presentation of one selected script presented by iScript.com.




*R.E. hope this is taken in the spirit in which it was intended.

Question: Can you at least allow us one more location besides the abandoned/rundown house?

No, the theme is wide open.  What happens on that dark and stormy night is entirely up to you.

Are they children or can we make them adults?  Boy and Girl seems general, but then again restrictive.  Also, does the wheelchair bound "person" have to be with the other Two?  Love the page length and setting.  Probably doing it.

Edit: never mind, I see the bulletpoint run down for Ren

Why in the world would you need another location?

Do we have to include all three characters? I know the boy in the wheelchair is a must, what about the other two?

What if there's an International House of Pancakes near the house?  Can we use the IHOP?  My characters may want to have a Rootie Tootie Fresh-n-Fruitee Breakfast Platter.

I've modified to clarify that the actors in question are adults who can play the age range from 18 to 80.  

No children.  

Good catch.
