Yes, bumping my own thread.  

Working out the details of the October One Week Challenge.  

These are not the 'official' rules, yet.  

Thoughts?  Hopes?  Dreams?

Don, as I said on another thread, I think it would be great if there was a way you could post all the entrants at once, or at least within a few hours of each other.

It seems that as days pass, interest wains, and the latter scripts don't get the attention that the first early batches get.

Since people seem to pick and choose which scripts they read and comment on, it would be nice if they had the entire selection to choose between.  I don't know if this is feasible or not, but IMO, it sure would help to even the playing field and give each script an equal shot at getting read and receiving feedback.

Just a thought...


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

Jeff,

My thoughts exactly.  I think if I set expectations with folks that the scripts won't be posted until 24 to 48 hours after closing, that would save the emails and posts about "where are the scripts".  

Good suggestion.

I don't know.  I think that whole animation with the banana dropping on the the plate then getting covered with vanilla plops was darn good entertainment.

Not as good as an October OWC, but good nonetheless.

And speaking of OWC suggestions - what about an OWC where we have to write something where there's no human characters?

Might be hard to get people interested in directing one.

And does every OWC have to be about low budgets?  What about expanding our writing ablities?  And just because it doesn't have a human character - doesn't mean it has to be expensive to produce.

No humans? So it's an SS script then? Full of wild animals?

I still suggest having a button at script submission that asks how many actors/characters are in the cast. That's very helpful to filmmakers...

Perhaps another script full of more sheets. (If you don't know; don't ask). Another grandiful time with costumes that are quite spiritual and as old as Halloween itself.

... I'm just adding this on now as an edit, but it might be an interesting
theme for this OWC. This might just be the theme and everyone could vote on all kinds of parameters to devise to make it an interesting challenge.

So yes, I found this, really loved it and wanted to share:
