Quoted from Murphy


That sounds like a great idea for a film...

Holocaust in Hicksville, pop 376 375.

The inhabitants of a boring little dump in Indiana wake up one July 4th and realise they are bored witless. With nothing else to do they begin eating each other and before long the whole town is in on the act. Somebody is destined to remain the last one standing, the only question is who.


Ah! Interesting.

This would be an excellent little idea. Especially if we know in advance they DO die, but the point is who survives longest, and what is it about them that made them survive longest!

Ahhh, I love a good zombie movie.

Where'd that come from, michel?


If I refer to the number of reviews, yours has the most of them. Well, you're just behind "Love is All you Need" and my "Memories", but I doubt they get any credit.

I never realised the name were revealed. Should this not be announced on the board too? Or have I completely missed that?

I have just got back to read your comment on your own script, very sneaky Michel, especially for pointing out the joke. hahaha, good try.

Number of reviews has nothing to do with it. What has happened in the past, and I can't guarantee it's the way it's going to happen this time, is that out of a pool of scripts chosen by the readers, three are chosen by Don as possible iScripts. Those three scripts are sent to iScripts and they select the one that fits their talent and image atm.

Don e-mailed everyone who submitted a OWC and asked for their 3 favorites. I assume the 3 with the most votes will be sent off to iScripts so that they can pick one from there that they like the best.

I don't think it's that clear cut.

My "duty" to read the OWC's.

I've read quite a few scripts here over the years. I don't feel reading the OWC's are my duty at all!  I do it because I like to read and hopefully I can offer the author some useful comments.

-- My comments weren't specifically directed towards the OWC entries or that one should feel obliged to comment on other members scripts. That is of course up the the discreation of each memeber and is by no means mandatory. It was a general remark, that we should try to get along and appreciate everyone elses opinions, styles and point of views in order to keep the site as good and invaluably helpful as it is.

I know is wishful thinking, in life things simply don't work that way, but we can always do our own bit towards providing such a healthy and stimulating environment here.

Apologies for not making myself clear earlier.

Just want to say, kudos to everyone who entered. I really wanted to read and review all 30-odd OWC scripts, but having come back after a few days away I'm afraid my drive and determination to do so has evaporated. Apologies to those I haven't got round to. You know what, here's what I'll do: if I haven't reviewed your OWC script and you'd like me to, just PM me and I PROMISE to give you the same kind of 5-category, marks-out-of-10 review I've given every script.

Since apparently we don't get to pick a winner, I thought I'd post the scores of the 15 I did manage to read and rate. I have no idea, and never did, about who wrote what, BTW.

OF SOUND MIND – 40/50
ALWAYS AND FOREVER – 35/50
A GOODBYE PARTY – 34/50
FAMILY DAY – 33/50
GUILT – 33/50
EDMUND – 29/50
FAMILY PICNIC – 28/50
RIVERSIDE AFTERNOON – 27/50
TWO BEERS – 26/50
OPERATION – 26/50
PICNIC SNITCH – 25/50
HIDDEN – 25/50
ADOPTED – 24/50
MEMORIES – 22/50
LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED – 19/50

So well done to whoever wrote 'Of Sound Mind'! You are my OWC winner. Unless, of course, somebody asks me to read a script which turns out to be better... Honorable mentions for Always and Forever, A Goodbye Party, Family Day, and Guilt.


Guess who's back? Back again?

This was my first experience with the One Week Challenge. I enjoyed it.

I didn't get the chance to read all of the entries, but I was able to read and review a little over twenty of them.

I tried to spend a good amount of time with each entry, and I hope the writers of each script I reviewed felt I was honest, fair, and more importantly, helpful.

It would be boisterous of me to name my three favorites publicly, but I will say excellent job to the writers of Sweetie, Edmund, Always and Forever, The Weekend Break, A Goodbye Party, and Brother Joe. Of the 30+ scripts entered, I especially liked these.

Quoted from Shelton


It's funny to see my name up like that. I love it!

*Yeah, I know I have an unusual name. My mother must've had a kick out of naming two of her daughters 'Fraya' and 'Trelan'*



Family Picnic 10 pages.

After the Trade 3 pages

Wow, I'm slow. I just got that the names had been posted. Well, so Operation was my brain child, and I just did a lot of explaining on the thread if anyone is interested. Perhaps for such a simple exercise, I was way too cerebral. But you know, I did a lot of research...

Oh, and I definitely still have some reading to do. I'd explain why I fell behind on it, but I don't want to jinx that whole thing.
