Jeez,

This was like mixing Kool-Aid with beer. Tough OWC I have to admit.

Just put mine in and to be honest, I have no idea of how it's going to be recieved. Most of the time, I do...

Not this one.

Crazy OWC Don.

Well done!

I didn't know squat about gothic ghost horror - I still don't know much  - but I gave this one a go. It's my first OWC submission since February '08, so that's something. I'm really going to try to read every script, and comment on most of them.

Is Don flagging scripts written by writers who are reading and reviewing other OWC scripts? I saw that mentioned somewhere but didn't see an answer.

No way. It can't be that long, Pete. I think you were on in 2009 weren't you? Wasn't that the year I was cruising on The Norwegian Jade and freakin' learned all about "real waves"?

Well, I have submitted mine so I'm in.
This really was a pretty intense challenge, and as has been said, it will be interesting to see how everyone has interpreted the theme and put their spin on it.

I'm not too confident about what I've done in all honesty, bit of a mad rush towards the end in terms of trying to put this together in some kind of cohesive manner, but I am really looking forward to reading other people's scripts.

Best of luck to everyone!

I have no fu**ing clue what you're talking about. I'm okay with that though.

But no, the Feb. '08 OWC was my first and last, until now. I did post another script, Mused, that was conceived for an OWC, but I didn't complete it in time to submit.

My first OWC entry was fairly well-received, so I'm hoping people will enjoy this one.

Hey Pete...

That's Sandra.

She rides her own waves for sure. Super cool poster here as well.

Glad to see you back at the madness my friend.

I hope your OWC does well.

Thanks Shawn. I don't post much, but I am familiar with Sandra - and her writing to some extent.

In fact, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to guess which script is hers.

Quoted from Reef Dreamer
Ray, I would just to echo Sandra's comments and thank you for all the tips, links etc that you have provided They have been very useful.

You clearly know a lot on this topic, I don't. Very much a case of the pupil listening to teacher.

Oh, and I'm looking forward to reading about your massing armies, on the assumption you're still going large. But does it include the boiled poodle!

Cheers


Ah, thanks a lot, man!
That's very nice of you to say.
Nah, I didn't know sh!t until I started doing research, which some of the folks who've been around here for the last year watching me grow can attest that I'm something of a freak about.
Guilty. Hi.

No. No massing armies, unfortunately.
I really wanted to do one as such and would have but I just couldn't reconcile post 1700s with anything containing mythic/epic anything that fit into "gothic horror" proper.
(I do actually try to follow the guidelines, to varying degrees of success).

Are there any mythic heros from the last few centuries?
Anything comparable to Greek/Roman gods?
Viking/Norse mythology?
LoTR?
Anything?

And I couldn't shoe horn in a poodle, either.
Don really handicapped me with the single entry this go round.  



Anatomy of a Tragedy as it Unfolds:

Quoted from rdhay
On a side note, Jeff, you could always hand over your idea to me...I'm still stressing that I don't have a good one!! I had something I thought could work, but the more I think about it, the more I think it's too big of an idea for a short


Quoted from rdhay
Awesome, congrats Any tips for me?


Quoted from rdhay
Thanks heaps!! I FINALLY know what to write thanks to that


Quoted from rdhay
Sorry, guys - I'm out too I finally got an idea, but I'm just not familiar enough with the genre to get a feel for writing this thing... I'm guessing I'll read the first one and realize I wasn't as far off the genre as I thought:p

You know what the b!tch of it is going to be, right?
Whatever you thought was a half-baked idea actually was fairly viable.
"LOL... thaaaaaat's nice. Now shaddap, Ray".






Quoted from leitskev
logline: every time I do an OWC, I totally forget about the logline until I am submitting. Then I have to bang one together.

High five!
Guilty as Hades for that each and every [expletive] time.
Eff me if I can ever to plan ahead for that one thing.
Thhp! Whatever.


I'll avert my eyes at ya'll's loggies and just concentrate on your fundamental stories; lily gilding will be discounted.
Director will change it.
Producer won't have budget for all of it.
Settings will negate them.
Actors are going to bugger them.
Editors will use the best take and Fraken-ADR the dialog.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!

GL, everyone!

I was really swarmed this week, but I really tried to get into the groove of things. In the end, I thought my logline smelled like rotting apples, so I tried again. And again. Finally I realized that I hated my own script and had no idea what I just wrote. Heck of a time coming up with a logline. If folks comment and hate it, I'll change it after the reveal, although what to is another story.

If I'm in here I'm in my the hairs of my chinny chin chin.

Washed out from the MP Undead challenge I think. (Yes, I'm in there somewheres) - I'm also in a SF vibe right now and have to get back to it.

I will read each entry as I do when I enter an OWC.

My reviews aren't too detailed - just a few thoughts and suggestions if needed.

Just got in to St. Louis.  Staying with my sister's family for a few nights.  Drove 1,550 miles the last 3 days.  Didn't get to submit a script...BUT...I did turn my OWC idea into a feature and will be writing it ASAP.  It will be much better as a feature anyway, as it would be crammed way too tight in 12 pages.

I'll be reading and commenting all I can, but my schedule isn't as open as usual.
Best of luck to everyone!!!


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