Before I get too excited about joining in, I have a question - I go away for 2 weeks from the 13th May - am I going to miss the read/voting stage?

Quoted from Anon
Not up to me but can I suggest no minimum page count? My heart always sinks when I havenít got time and hey - if you can write a story in 1-page itís a good skill to practice!


NOT!!!!  Terrible idea.

You can't have a bunch of 1 page last minute entries along side 12 pagers that took time to conceive and write.

C'mon, man!



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

Personally, I think it would be hard as Hell to build suspense in a one-page script, but I know there are better writers here than me... so I'm okay with someone trying.

1-page scripts used to be my favorite to write. If you wanted to, you could get a hell of a lot of story out in that one page.

I'd agree with Jeff - If there was no minimum page count then you would have to have a low maximum to keep the entries from being too disparate  - 1-2 pagers could be a OWC all on its own.

Although saying that, with the sheer volume of entries in the last one, I wish some of them were 1 pagers

Just 'cos you haven't got the skills to condense a story - doesn't mean they should be banned. Better chance of production with a good micro-script. And my only previous entry to this challenge won. It was 2 pages. And beat many other longer scripts - including yours

Your fourth hint.







Jaws 2 isn't a great movie, but this scene traumatized me when I was like seven and it has always stuck with me. No oceans for this guy.

Seven? Nice parenting. Your folks and mine should get together, they let me watch Piranha and The Exorcist.

The first horror film I ever saw was Leprechaun 3. I remember it vividly. It's awful. And SO good.
