Congrats Ryan, fine work and it was in my top three. I'm just happy my script didn't "blow goat balls" as bad as Phil's did. At least, according to the writer feedback...


Your death will be the slowest, James.  I'll probably stop for lunch in the middle of killing you... and, perhaps, a parfait.

Quoted from Scar Tissue Films
Yes, just to clarify...I wasn't surprised because of the quality of the script, just because Open Casket seemed liked a fait accompli.


Rick,

It's all good.  I just took the opportunity of your post to clarify for folks how the final selection process actually goes down.

The iScript folks, in order to maintain objectivity, don't follow the OWC threads so they can make an unbiased selection.

I'm remembering now that I read a link that posted a professional reader's sheet that he/her uses in critique.

Maybe we need to post one of these in the next OWC.

Congrats, Ryan! I really like what iScripts did with it, the tone of your descriptions was really captured. It sounded like the best kind of radio drama.  

Great job, to all three who topped the list.

I read Veil of Blood again today and also the thread and the comments because I do think Ryan is a top notch writer and absolutely deserves this.

Somebody (maybe more) mentioned that the run down images should be filmed in the light or at least lightER like dusk. This is a very solid observation. By doing so, you will really be able to see it and you can progress toward night thereafter.

Some people criticized this as being too novelistic. I didn't think think so. It held with my understanding of gothic and detail is king.

Having read this again, I think rather than have the monk making eye contact here:

>He regards the house for a moment, then turns his fierce gaze directly at Coralie. Even through a tangle of bushes and trees, his eyes lock onto hers.

I would have him scanning the area with a supernatural kind of predator like vision-- not locking onto hers. Rather, have her fearful, breathless. And, we don't quite know if she's just exhibiting emotional exaggeration due to her previous encounter with the ghost, or if she is indeed seeing him for what he is.

Just wanted to say congrats to Ryan.  I mentioned in the thread I think it was the strongest written.

But also a good job to everybody who took the time to write and submit theirs.  (Although, most said they wrote theirs in a matter of a few hours.  So maybe even though there wasn't a lot of time put into these (and I think a couple people might be exaggerating about just writing it in just an hour or two,) still a great amount of effort and talent put forth this time around.)

Like I said somewhere earlier, I think I liked everyone that I read.  There were none that I thought were even bad.

I don't know about the few hours thing myself. I can't imagine putting in that little time. I would have to be extremely good or extremely carefree. Or both. To me:

A One Week Challenge means:

You set aside time almost every single day to work on a short. If you only work for three hours, then that means you are very very skilled to be able to pull it off. People need congratulations just for that.

I put much more time into this short than I did in my first 2 OWC's. My first one, last Feb, I wrote in a day, but then had the rest of the week to clean up. The one last month I didn't start until Thursday night, probably took about 5 hours total to write. This one I worked on for about 5 days! The first 2 were probably better received, however, so maybe I should go back to winging it.

Nah man, I think your showing nothing but improvment big time with each work. Just keep at it. I think this one was pretty well received either way.
