Quoted from hawkeye
So on a totally different matter, but entirely related to the one week challenges, my short script "Skip" from the Quickie challenge last year was filmed last week in L.A.  So proof once again that these one week challenges do matter and they are looked at by up and coming producers and directors.  

It was shot with an all-African American cast and crew, which I'm also proud of.  The film is going into a lot of black film festivals, and once that's out of the way, I'll post the video here on the site.

But it's just another indicator that this is the best site anywhere for getting people to see your work!

Gary


Nice one, Garry!! Congrats

I really can't wait to see who wrote what. It's going to be such a long week.

Never too early to start the guess game.  

I've got Sean pegged for 6AM. Though I could be wrong.  

BTW. Congrats, Gary!

Damn! I'm almost as bad at the guessing game as I am at writing RomComs. Almost.

I still have so many scripts to read...

I want to! It's just my job and my family have such unreasonable expectations of my time.

Luckily, my job and family have extremely low expectations of me, and thus, I only have 4 more to read.  


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

I'm done!! hallelujah

I guess I will have to skim them over again when the score sheets come out.

I really underestimated how hard it is to see comments on my script and not be able to respond - So to relieve some of the pressure building in my head, I'm going to leave my comment below instead of on my script thread:

"I'M SORRY!!! I CAN FIX THIS MESS, I PROMISE"

Phew... I feel better.

Well done to everyone who entered the challenge - I for one did not find it easy.

P.S Newbies who aren't reviewing - just do it - it's not as scary as you think.

P.P.S well done Hawkeye on your filmed OWC - gives new people like me hope that we may get there one day

Thanks, Matthew, and glad you were such a willing reader in this contest, which seems to be the opposite (per usual) of most of the noobs that have entered.

I donít know whether it is fear of expressing their opinion for the first time or they just want to enter a contest but not but any other effort into it, we always seem to have this issue arise. So here is my very modest but completely wacky proposal to address this for future contests:

1.  Anyone who enters who doesnít review at least a third (33%) of the entires is DQíd.  That might be viewed as harsh, especially if lifeís circumstances sometimes get in the way, but a lot of life is unfair, and the film business itself is particularly unfair.

2. Any noob who doesnít actively participate in their first contest by reviewing canít enter another contest until they actively review at least 20 short scripts on the general board. You need to contribute to the community.  Thatís how this site thrives.  More than one word reviews are also required.  ďInterestingĒ isnít really a review, IMO.

Iím sure there are other methods of incentivizing reviews, but those were the first two that came to my head.  I know that it would be likely impossible to enforce, and we donít need to add any more to Donís or the moderators plates, but Itís frustrating putting the effort into reading 42 scripts and yours only get 15 in return. Somethingís wrong with that picture.

Fire away with your criticisms. Iím know Iím just an old man yelling at clouds here.

Sounds reasonable, but not likely. Although I do agree the dude who just wrote one word or one sentence for his reviews needs to step up his game and provide a little more insight. Like, maybe, two sentences.

I know it's frustrating. It would be nice if there were more reviews. But...

Not a fan of adding more bureaucracy to this. It's an exercise. The challenge is to write.

Yeah, those who review all only get around a 1 to 3 exchange from the review process. But the reviews we are getting are from predominately experienced writers and really the ones you want to hear from the most.  In terms of quid pro quo, with one rare exception that I can recall, the winning scripts are typically from active reviewers. I may change my mind and agree with you if I start seeing a pattern of winners that were not reviewers. i.e., folks that just bomb in to take part of in the challenge to get exposure without returning anything to the boards. But again -  in my experience that is really rare.

I have empathy for the newbies. More than likely their scripts are getting pounded and as such they may feel their reviews will as well. I know that is not the case - but I can see it percolating in their minds.
