I've seen good pissers couple of times actually.

It's weird as I'm totally not a fan, because most of the time it's a waste of reader's time. But Sean said what he said... I know why though.
I understand.
Too many comedy scripts and this site is not used to comedy much - we'll think each one is a pisser. So, I guess, it's a special ninja strategy on Sean's part.

And where are Libby and Dena? I don't see them on the thread.

Wonka said she's not going to be in and Pia is not gonna write one. Well, I've heard tat lotsa times from Pia so you never know. But Janet is out - looks like it.

What good are choices if they're all bad?

Quoted from Vlade-B
I'm trying write a short for this challenge as well. A few questions though...
Why shouldn't we put our name on it? Should we use a fake name instead?
And most important of all: What is a "pisser"?


You shouldn't put your name on it so that you can receive objective feedback. Some people may be tempted, when seeing somebody's name on a script, to review it specifically because they know them or avoid it because they don't. Leaving your name off is for the best, for everyone. No, on the script, don't put your name or a fake name. However, if and when you submit the script, please put in your real information.

As for the second part, it's a long-standing joke on this site. What "pisser" refers to is almost a parody of a poorly written script. The script is written by someone trying to emulate bad scripts by writing one intentionally bad.

Third of all, welcome to the One Week Challenge. =)

Dena told me she's out, as she hates the superhero theme.

I hate it too, and will most likely be out.  Also, only 6 pages doesn't give much room to create a superhero, IMO.

Pisser?  Ah...maybe...maybe, but I highly doubt it would adhere to the superhero theme.

Maybe a new Bunnyman script?  


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Any particular reason why no fake names either? I know Don typically comes up with his own, but creating pseudonyms is and has been fun in and of itself.

I didn't like the genre... but a challenge is a challenge. You either chicken out or give it your best shot. I was tempted to chicken out, not like I haven't got a hundred and one excuses just like everyone else, but you should never go down without a fight. You might end up getting a good kicking, but at least you never ran... hm, now that I think about that logic, perhaps there are some occasions where it's best to run.

Dustin, don't think - this never brings much good. That's what I tell myself - just write and submit, write and submit. No thinking.

Pia,

Didn't Dena write the Bunnyman? She's out, so no Bunnymen this time.

Started mine today. Hopefully finish a draft tonight. I know it'll be utter drivel but I've still got a good 3 days to go over and clean it up.

Good luck to everyone. It's not an easy one.

Quoted from Mr. Blonde
The thing about comedy, besides its subjectiveness, is that it is very difficult to have it come across on the page. Most times, it's all in the delivery.


Yeah good point Blondie. The timing of the jokes or final punchline needs to be spot on.

Using (beat) in a comedy can be vital at the right time, especially in a 6 page script. Also don't angonise over a line to make it funny. Go with the spontaneity

What stops me is having to read and comment on 25 or 30 superhero scripts that are supposed to to be funny.
