Quoted from Dustin
Shame it's taken up most of the time we get to write the thing to figure out exactly what the requirements are... but then, what should I expect when you think it's OK to wait for questions rather than specifying exactly what you want from the beginning.


Here's my take on this: if a person couldn't come up with a script that fit into the parameters that were laid out in the beginning with what I posted in the original post, then they were trying to find ways to push the envelope. Like I said, I have no problem with that because no one will be disqualified for it.

As for asking questions, I'm going to point to an OWC that occurred before you arrived at the site. No matter how narrow the parameters are made, there will always be questions by people looking to see how far away from the original topic they can get:

Thanks Rendevous and Mr. Blonde, for both the explanation and the welcome.

@Rendevous, yes I did bust rhymes when I was a teenager. I don't recall that phase too fondly, though.

I don't know if I really qualify as young (late 20's), especially after asking the next question. How do I send my script? In the submiting form there is no button which lets me upload a file.

I'm gonna tear up the fucking dance floor, dude. Check it out.

Maybe it's a sign that you should edit it again.

The upload button appears after you submitted the form. Got me puzzled as well.

First you fill in the form - your name, script's title, your nickname on the boards, your logline.
Now you click on the button that says I understood the paragraph.

As soon as you click it another form comes up that says "submit your file". That's when you submit.

Making a superhero comedy is tough. i expect a few entries along the lines of Underdog or Hong Kong Phooey -not those characters er se, but rather "animated" anthropomorphic heroes. AS for L/A, it's tougher because all the good jokes about the sub-genre have beenused from My Super Ex-Girlfriend to the recent Deadpool.

What is funny? I don't know, really.
Does 'coffin humor' count? Like in action films, a hero or villain cracks a zinger ("Blow off some steam Bennet" - Commando "That’s a Smith & Wesson…and you’ve had your six" James Bond, Dr. No)

This one may have stumped me.

I understand, I think. I hope the rhymes bit was happy enough though.

And not like that posh woman who liked horses whose father was a politician. She was ultra confident she could crack rhymes with the boyz at an open mike night on their turf. With a TV crew from Channel 4 in the UK in tow.

I watched it months later on the Tube of You via the Googlers. It's hilarious. She fails so badly and the lads laugh so much I had to watch it again. And later again. Oh dear. Confidence can sometimes make you trip. It does with me at least. Now and again.

Rhyming will stand you in good stead around here.

I'd take Dustin's advice regarding editing. Can't do any harm. Every script can improve. Even mine. As for signs, it's great if you can understand them all. I wish I did.

Good work keep up etc.

Finished the script draft. Night shift tonight so hopefully some time to edit and re tweak it. It certainly was a 'challenge' for me, this one.

Pretty sure I'm well within the parameters, I was very liberal in my interpretation on the last OWC.

Good luck all.

Okay - I'm in. Look forward to the reads. Had this tune in my head the whole time.

"I wonder what it's like to be a super hero
I wonder where I'd go if I could fly around downtown
From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow Sun
Boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned, they're stunned"

Indeed. I can agree with very good, EO.

But I do hope folks aren't actively getting carried away.

As I was saying to Dave, y'know the painter. He does loads. Unfortunately he has the legend '& Decorator' after Painter on his van. Kinda takes the edge off his erm... edginess.

But he was telling me about DaVinci. Not DiCaprio. We hear quite enough about him. The sexy rich and talented barstard. I still watch The Departed in awe. Enough.

Dave said painters don''t finish paintings. They walk away before they spoil them. Hmm, I thought.

Usually the closest Dave comes to deep thought is analysing how the game went on Saturday.

Dave, we agreed that you're supposed to say that after you've read it.

Damn, I forgot. My bad. Hopefully my vote won't be DQ'd. I feel so bad that I am only going to stick to one entry for myself. My alternate one was about a person that had the power to make people feel happy and dance by singing inane songs. He was:

Super Califragilisticexpialidocious Man

I thought Rendevous would find it compelling enough to paint if on the van.
