Quoted from LC

Look out everyone! No false modesty from the reigning champ.  


The word to focus in on is "I" - love it. I think the masses are going to have strong opinions about it, but we'll see.

But yes, in all honesty, this is the first OWC script Iíve really looked at and enjoyed straight away. I think itís one of the strongest pieces Iíve ever written, OWC or otherwise

Well, that's intimidating.

About the whole minimal gore thing...I'm making a choice. Not sure if people will consider it outside the bounds of the competition or not, but I think I'm using considerable restraint for the story. It's not excessive or gratuitous, but it's there. Minimal means minimal, not restricted entirely.

As long as the focus is more on suspense than gore, you'll be good.

Coming from a double mugger!

OWC's are meant to illicit creativity. I think going out side of the box, but still managing to capture the parameters makes for far more interesting stories than 20 script that strictly adhere to them.

In saying that, every OWC has issues with how far people feel the boundaries can be pushed. That's why I quoted and clarified some issues with Zack, but I still know I'm going to cop it.

Wow. First draft done in...three hours?

It must be crap. It doesn't reek though. I'll let it sit and see if it funks up.

Second draft done and digging it. I should even get time for a 3rd or 4th, which is almost unheard of for me in OWCs.

A bit of advice for those unsure if their work is good or not. You never know until you send it out to the world. Iíve entered stuff in these OWCís Iíve been convinced are the best scripts Iíve ever written, only for them to bomb. And vice versa, stuff I thought was a bit meh but entered anyway have gone down a storm. In general, the response seems to be a MIX OF BOTH! Which is bonkers, but thatís how it goes. So enter, find the bits in you script people seem to dig and identify the areas that need work. Itís all part of the learning process.

Last point (for now) this OWC to me sounds perfect for a horror anthology and they are all the rage at the moment. Just saying, any producer out there, just sayin!

Quoted from Dreamscale

My advice is not to rush to put down words.  Flesh it out in your head first, then start the writing.  It's the creative part that takes the time, not the writing.



Thanks for the tip. I have most of it laid out in my head - but no end.

I'm hoping a satisfying ending will present itself as I write it out - otherwise, it's going to be:
Wake up - it was all a dream - the end.
That will please people, right?

Something tells me you'd do just fine.


I feel like I don't post here enough for people to know what my style is and thus no one will know which is my entry.

You say that, I know, I'm sure you believe
But, I remember a script you soundly conceived

Not a style, just a choice, I'm sure you would say
For me? I'll never forget the form of that day

Quoted Text
The script just needs to heavily feature some sort of vehicle. The vehicle needs to be integral to the plot.


Hey Zack, so my script features a vehicle in the majority of the pages, however it is not used as a story-moving plot device. The story is just set in a vehicle when something unrelated happens to the characters to make it scary. Would this be a disqualification? This might be the deciding factor of whether I'll be entering or not.
