I'm really looking forward to this one. I was wondering why, since I almost didn't do the recent OWC. And I figured it out.

I've been so busy with rewrites that I don't have the opportunity to write new stuff, other than new scenes in the rewrites. I think that's why I'm excited for this one. I already have a few days blocked off to work on it. Definitely pumped to do a new short!

I love shorts and the OWC and the MP comp are just perfect for me. Looking forward to the October OWC! Even if it's something that doesn't speak to me, I usually submit something.  Which remind me I should have rewritten the last one!! Better do that!!

I've understood that the next one will be for horror. I'll probably skip it, if that is the case. Not my genre in the least.

Henrik, you can do spooky drama, can't you? You'll get some people say it's not horror, but so what. Think Vincent Price, Dark Shadows, the old school stuff. A lot of people don't consider that horror now, but I think it counts.

You have the championship belt! Don't give it up, make someone take it from you!

I'm not sure if I will or won't. Will I? Won't I? Will I? Won't I?

I can't make up my mind.

I'm a complete ignoramus when it comes to horror in general. I haven't even seen those old things. I've only seen a handful of horror movies, nothing to give me any practical sense of the genre.

But we'll see. If an idea should magically surface... Or if I summon some demons. I have the Satanic Bible and everything.

You don't know what the genre and theme will be until the fat lady sings.   So don't give up so easily.

Is that how you won the last OWC? A deal with Satan? Man, you need an agent!

I don't even know if horror is the topic. Everyone assumes because of Halloween. But if it is, didn't you hear ghost stories as a kid? And it doesn't have to be supernatural. Can involve murder, torture, bloody violence. Actually, Remnant was sci fi and not too far off from horror. You'll get an idea, I have faith.

Sandra's in, of course!

I was the same last year henrik. Had never tried a horror short, as I'm a comedy man.

Did one and it came out pretty good! I enjoyed the new challenge! So go for it man.

Don, another suggestion - all scripts have to ref the Beatles at least once?!

What? You saying that Satan's not the best agent around?

You can't say that he's not good at making deals.

Well, actually, now that I think about it I realize that I actually have written a horror movie. It was an adaptation of H. P. Lovecrafts Reanimator that was commissioned from me by a production team who lost their interest almost immediately after I handed my draft. I don't think it was because of the draft, because the whole team dissolved.

And the short that I'm writing for production right now features some pretty blatant horror elements. So I guess I do write horror after all...

The Beatles... Sounds vaguely familiar.

Are they new?

HE makes good deals. YOU'RE the one that doesn't. I hope it wasn't your soul for an OWC title! There was an episode of the Simpsons where Homer sold his soul for a donut.  Is Henrik Finnish for Homer?

I don't actually know what the Homer would be in Finnish... But I'd definitely get at least two donuts! However, let me assure you that no mythical beings were involved in my OWC submission. Just sheer panic and dumb luck.

That's right. Could be about a Haloween Party and the most scary thing is an accident while bobbin' for apples.
