Quoted from Don


In my defense, that is how it was submitted.



I try to respect how the author wishes to be credited no matter how often it changes...

Don




Well...things get fuzzy late in the night....

Is that for real? They used that as a tourism promo?  I suppose at least they didn't bullshit and gloss over all the bad stuff!!!


Uh, no.  Not an actual tourism video.  Actually, the guy made two.  Here's the other one.

Quoted from dogglebe


And another thing about multiple submissions:  If a filmmaker gave you a week to write a specific script, would you crank out three scripts?  Or spend the whole week perfecting one?


Phil



Phil, I think most people have forgotten that we pretend we are writing a script for a producer.... which is when we start getting people writing more than one script, and non serious ones.

I think the next OWC should cover that again.... There is a producer who wants to make a film. He is going to ask a bunch of people to write him a script on s epcific genre and theme, and then he is going to pick one of them to shoot. With that mindset, the OWC could be a lot better.

Well done to everyone who entered. It was not an easy challenge this time around, and the quality of the scripts overall probably reflects that. I think Mythos and Dumb Animals were probably my two favourites, and there were 3 or 4 other pretty good ones also.

As for the joke entries, some of them were entertaining but would like to see less of them next time around. Part of the problem became thinking pretty average scripts were meant to be jokes when in reality they were just poorly written. I was sure that script Taste Buddies was done as a joke but the writer doesn't appear to be a member so I guess it was just unintentionally horrible. She's not going to read this anyway so fuck her. Apologies to anybody else that I may have accused of taking the piss that was actually supposed to be a serious entry.

Would've thought all of the board members who submitted scripts would have at least attempted to comment on SOME scripts, but apparently that's not the case. Pretty weak effort IMO.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my script Lambshank. I'll be honest, it was not a serious attempt to meet the challenge criteria. Any story that I thought of to meet the challenge as a drama sounded dull and unoriginal so I didn't bother with them. In the end I decided I'd rather write a story that very loosely meets the challenge but is interesting to read, than one that sticks to it rigidly but is boring. Hopefully a few people got a couple of laughs out of it.

Cheers,
Tim.

Tim, you are a really good writer...for reals, bro.  Yours was nice...very funny and well set up.  For a pisser, it was tops all the way.

Agree with all you had to say...


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

I'm sorry, Jeff but you are just dumb.

Tim's wasn't a "pisser". He wrote a serious entry which can't be a contender (he thinks) because it's more of a comedy than drama. That's what "not serious attempt" means...in some cases.

For me Whitcroft and Ryan did the best job, good work you two!  Still got some more to read.  Good job on everyone who tried!

Khamanna...well...you are just really dumb and stupid...and...like dumb.

Dude, fuck you.  What the Fuck are you even talking about?  Tim's a great writer...pisser or not.  Pisstakes can be great.  Pisstakes come in all sizes and shapes, all colors, all styles.

He knows what I'm talking about.  You obviously are clueless.

Where's your entry?  Fuck you, bitch!

I thought Tommy's suggestion for a future OWC was very good.

And i have one too: we do the paired one which we did last in January 09. If we have a deadline of 24 hours to nominate for the challenge, then we get, say, 30 or so people entering. After the deadline, no one can be in it.
Then, we randomly pair up people, announce the theme and genre and go for it. If we have a time of maybe 10 days to do it in, it should be ok.
This way, there'll be only 15 or 20 scripts to read instead of 40. And the results should be really interesting.
I enjoyed that challenge last year(even though my buddy Jeff didn't like being paired with me!). The opportunity to wriite something under pressure with Pia, Sandra, Sniper, Cam or any of the SS people, would be awesome. Ande being paired with a 'newbie' would be a good experience too.

My two bob's worth anyway...

A little more history, for those unfamiliar with Ms. Zadora's body of work...

Hey don't worry mate I understood what Jeff was saying and he didn't mean anything negative by it. I think there is some confusion amongst different people as to the actual meaning of the word pisser or pisstake or whatever. It's generally Aussie slang and pisser means something that is funny. A pisstake is more of a sendup, like Stevie mentioned before. So you could say my script was a pisstake of the movie Shawshank, but using that word is not saying whether or not it was a serious entry.

Cheers Jeff, glad you liked it. I'd love to see Wolves at the Door filmed someday, I wonder if Christopher Lee would be up for it?!

Tim.

P.S. I like Stevie's suggestion about the next OWC, sounds good.

In my defense, I was also accused of not taking the challenge seriously, and yet I actually did. I tried to avoid the obligatory talking heads discussion about the same things we were inevitably going to hear a hundred times, and just start after the fact. Both of mine were very similar and I prefer Farm Girl over Living the Lie, since it was written second. Neither are terrible, but neither are very good either.

Definitley think the Helio rule should be enforced next time.

I think that would have made for 25 entries, which is a good, manageable amount.
