Quoted from Ledbetter
Here is my story.
I was out of town the entire week of the OWC.
On Friday night a couple of hours before the OWC was to close, I was encouraged by some posters to try and write a script.

Thats what I did. I wrote it in 52 minutes. So I named it TAKES TWO.

I know it sucks but I wrote it completly without even rereading it. I submitted it and emailed Don to make sure I even made it in time.

I don't apoligize for it. I simply wanted to see if I could pull off a script in an hour and I did. Horrible formatting, grammer and all.



Shawn.....><


Ledbetter, you completely brought a great deal of funnies my way. Thank you. Hope you don't mind me playing:

FORGIVE ME - AN AFTER OWC THING

INT. OFFICE

NUMBER 11 door closes.

An H MAN, a haggard man enters to a room furnished with a THERAPIST BABETTE and a purple and red floral rosette. She wears a dotted atomic body suit. The transparent dots amount to the ratio of black, creating their circumferences, respectively.

The couch wears its rosettes as a complex conundrum compared to her easily defined "dots".

H MAN
I was out of town the entire week of the OWC.
On Friday night a couple of hours before the OWC
was to close, I was encouraged by some posters to try and write a script.

BABETTE
Mmhmmm... And did you feel peer pressure?

H. MAN
Kinduv. ...Thats what I did. I wrote it in 52 minutes. So I named it TAKES TWO.

BABETTE
What was your relationship like with your mother?

H. MAN
I don't wanna talk family issues. Listen,
I know it sucks but I wrote it completly
without even rereading it. I submitted it and emailed
Don to make sure I even made it in time.

BABETTE
When's the last time you had sexual relations?

H. MAN
Please! This isn't about sexual relations!
I don't apoligize for it. I simply wanted to see if
I could pull off a script in an hour and I did.
Horrible formatting, grammer and all.

BABETTE
It's all family or sexual! H. MAN, You've got
problems!

SANDRA'S BIRTHDAY SONG with WE'VE GOT PROBLEMS LYRICS

H. MAN
Now you're yelling at me too?!
What shocks me, Is I actually have seen
reviews that did see what I was trying to do.
And for those of you who thought is was a pisstake, it wasn't.

It was a man with an hour and I wanted to be in.

Babette brings him to her breasts.

BABETTE
There. There.

Quoted from Grandma Bear
I disagree Phil. Clearly people like the OWC. Remember how dead it was here before this OWC?


Gotta agree with Pia, although I'm an advocate for having everyone's name attached to their scripts from the beginning. who cares about the guessing game. OWC is awesome, getting bigger, and it's not a competition. It inspires people to write in unfamiliar territory which makes them better writers in the end.

You are faboulas and that was some funny shit. And in less than an hour?
Pias breast, eh?

The couch wears its rosettes as a complex conundrum compared to her easily defined "dots".

Did you just pull that out?
Outstanding...

Okay, I will play on that line.
Because the couch as he know it, is only a place for which he must ledge his toe to fall into that softest yet most uncertin of places. His heart and her trust.

Pia, Coding, I must admit I didn't leave feedback on all of them.  I'm new here, so I didn't know if that was the thing to do.  If I didn't, that probably just means I looked at the other reviews and someone said the exact thing I was thinking.  But, over the next couple of days I'll go back and try knock em all out.

By the way, PHIL

GREAT JOB! You tossed a curve ball out there.

Yes there are some who played with it, but isn't that what happens with every OWC?

I don't suppose you can bottle everyone into a theme. Instead, isn't it the real challange to put a theme out ther that turns a persons mind to a new direction no matter if they stay withen the bounderies or or not.

I think your theme was a good one. I also think based on the diversity of the scripts, you should be flattered. It's not every theme thet provokes this type of responce.

Be it serious or comedy, you did produce almost 40 scripts.

Good job man.

I disagree. The challenge is to pretend Phil is a producer and he tells us what kind of script he wants. If he was a Hollywood producer would all these MOCKERY scripts have been submitted...

That would be my cue to put up Blue Rodeo's "Lost Together", but then again... maybe not. Spoil the tone of this thread.

I see Pia,

This is the first time i have heard this angle presented regarding how the OWC is pervieved.

It was simply my intention to encourage Phil regardless of the scripts that can be placed in the "pay no mind" bin.

I assume (and I may be wrong) that a OWC is to provoke a writers thought proces to be pushed outside of his or her "comfort zone". In which case Phil did an outstanding job.

Some writers took this to mean(in my opinion) it should not be taken seriously simply because it might have been to far from a subject they understand. In which case sometimes humor is their best way of expressing themselves.

I may be the minority here but I feel Phil put a great one out there and some humor simply comes with the subject matter.

Shawn.....><

Humor is good, but the script itself needs to be within the designated genre. Sometimes the script is an all-out comedy when the genre is supposed to be drama.

Phil has said many times that this was based on "what if a producer told you to write this". Maybe it got lost somewhere... I just think if he was a Hollywood hotshot, everyone would have done their very best and that was the original intention with the OWC.

Pia,

Babette brings him to her breasts....

Was the last line in Sandras skit. It was actually a pop against me in a funny way, not a sexual line regarding your Tits.
