Quoted from Trojan



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.


Oh, yeah, the Queen parties here and I disturbed her (talking about Dreamscale)

The rule of thumb here to test if it's a pisstake or not - your entry could be filmed, when his is snickering at the theme and the genre.  


And yet I did like one joke entry (I'd imagine this one was to goof around too) - the one with two dinning people who plopped their faces in their plates and died. But I noticed not many did  and for the ending. All I'm saying is - pisstakes are generally a waste of readers time. I know some of you are friends who don't mind the pisstakes but I wouldn't waste time on an entry if I was sure it's just a joke. I don't want to read something that was intended for a trash basket.

Whoa, whoa!  You need to scale things back a bit, Jeff.

There are numerous arguments on various threads this OWC, and no, you did not start everything -- but you seem to be inserting yourself into all of them.

There are people who do not like the way this OWC went down...at all.

You wrote 3 scripts and admit that all three were [insert my new favorite word here].

And that is fine.

But you need to accept the alternate opinions that it is not fine with some other members -- and you need to stop defending your own position with profanity.

And it is not just Jeff.  Many of you need to step back -- take a breath -- and remember it is just a message board.

Lots of you are showing your asses this time around.  Time to cover them back up.


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

OK, I feel better now.  I think I just needed to have my ass shining in the moonlight for awhile.

I'm going to blame it on the rain.  No more swearing or being mean from me anymore today.

I liked City of Carnivores best. But there were so many good ones - really enjoyed the entries ( serious entries)


Thanks for the compliment! Wished more people had read it though.

Finally finished reading all of them, these are the ones that I considered good (in terms of meeting the challenge, story - *drama*, and what not):

Mythos
In the Grip of Winter
In the Flesh
A Dangerous Job
Dumb Animals
A Few Moments of Your Time
The Butcher's Daughter
Bleeding Green
PETA, and...
City of Carnivores (Yes, what can I say? I considered my own script good).

Anyway, congrats to those who finished a script in one week or less.

Quoted from dogglebe


Usually, people bitch and moan the loudest when the genre is comedy yet, in this OWC, half the scripts were comedies.  What a bunch of hypocritical bitches and moaners.

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



Some interesting points there.

Er, to those who comment on those who appear to not have done any reading lately I offer this comment.

Some of us have demands on out time and attention. Some also read and don't comment. Some will get round to reading eventually. I hope no one in a massive rush. It's the summer. Long days.

Now, where is my trowel? It isn't beside my keys. They are on the shelf. Oh dear.
