The Quickie Challenge

Page Length: 3 pages MAXIMUM
Scripts Due: 3 days from start of challenge
Genre: Any
Budget: Any

Parameters: You will be given a LOCATION and OBJECT that must be used in your screenplay (further explanation at the bottom).

**The location/object parameters are below. Remember, you may choose either set. You CANNOT mix and match between them. Just pick one group or the other:


Location: A Retirement Home
Object: A Jump Rope

---------------------------------

Location: A Church
Object: A Pair of Dice



The challenge has started! Scripts must be submitted by August 20th at 11:59 EST.

Timeline:
August 17th at 7PM EST - Location/Object announced. Start of challenge.
August 20th at 11:59PM EST - Scripts are due to SimplyScripts.com/owc
August 27th - Writer's Choice scoring due

RULES:
--3 pages MAXIMUM.
--Must incorporate the given location and object.
--Screenplay must be properly formatted and in PDF format.
--Do not put your real name on your script. However, please use your real name when submitting your script.
--You may revise your script as many times as you wish up until the deadline.
--Participants are strongly encouraged to read and comment/review on the scripts submitted.
--Please put on the bottom left corner of your title page.
--One entry per person. No pissers. Free to enter. This is not a contest.


LOCATION/OBJECT REQUIREMENTS FURTHER EXPLAINED:

Neither has to appear in the entirety of the screenplay.

Just make it clear we are in the location at some point AND that the object is in at least one scene at some point.

For the location, you can just put it in a master scene heading, you can use a mini-slug, you can do anything as long as it's clear we are in that location at some point. If the reader cannot tell for sure, you run the risk of getting DQ'ed.

For the object, have it be visible at some point in the screenplay. It cannot be a character describing the object. It cannot be a painting of the object. It cannot be a hologram. It has to be the actual object we can see on screen.

Feel free to ask any questions now because you won't have much time once the challenge starts.

And good luck!!!


That rug really tied the room together.

After the last OWC, I hate to start asking questions BUT, to clarify,  we all get the same location and object?

Too cool - can't wait to hear what you have up your sleeve.

Questions are good, ask away. That's the one thing I didn't mention yet. I'm gonna give you all two separate sets of location/object. So everyone gets the same options, and it's your choice which set to use. You CANNOT mix and match between them. Just pick one set or the other.

3-pagers can be tough, but I'll give it a go.

What can I say, this sounds shady and weird. Fortunately, I'm in the right state of mind to take part. But for those who are in - go on, make us sane ones laugh.


Kidding, we used to have two days challenges and those were a lot of fun. They were one on one but the "guest contestants" were welcome as well. It was a long time ago, possibly five years have passed or something. We even did commercials on these. I remember liking the commercials better but people voted against them and we switched back to scripts. Anyway, good luck with the challenge, James. I'll try to come up with some interesting questions as soon as the object is announced.

I like the sound of this and I haven't written anything new in ages so I'll give it a go.

Looking forward to the location being announced as a rectum and the object a bag of sprouts.
