Welcome to Round 1. At this moment, you are all equal. Now, comes the fun part. Keep in mind that the location and object should be integral to your script (the script can't exist without them), but that doesn't mean your entire script has to take place in that location or that object has to appear in every scene.

For this round, there's a little extra trick to make things harder on all of you.

Genre: Fusion.

Location: Psychiatrist's Office.

Object: Bobblehead Doll.


Now, what does "fusion" mean in this case? There are four genres which will appear in rounds 2-5: Action, Comedy, Horror, Sci-Fi. Your task, in round 1, is to fuse two (only two) of those together for this script.

To avoid questions regarding this topic, I made this list:

Horror-Comedy - Shaun of the Dead
Horror-Action - Aliens
Horror-Sci-Fi - Alien
Action-Comedy - Beverly Hills Cop
Action-Sci-Fi - The Matrix
Sci-Fi-Comedy - Men in Black

Good luck.

Got a fully formed story scribbled down in my notebook. Quite happy with it at the moment. Will see how it looks when I turn it into a script on Monday.

Now I can spend the next day and a bit massaging the story in my head.

Thought I was going to struggle a bit more with the criteria but something came to me pretty quickly. I'm not saying it's great but it will definitely do for this round.

You should shit this challenge in bro  I hear you’ve had lots of experience and action with realistic bobble head dolls.  And I imagine the video of it is bordering on horror/comedy

Holy crap, this is tough! I'll just bang my face against my keyboard and see what happens.


An example of my writing...

FOR SATAN - short, horror, 14 pgs (revised draft) - A group of thrill-seekers explore a creepy old house on Halloween night. Think you know this story? Think again.

What’s the page count this round? Sorry if I missed that.


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.

Very creative, well-thought-out challenge. Hope I can think of something worthy.

So, all of it has to happen in the psychiatrist office? Or the major part of it?

It has to play a key role, so that the script wouldn't work without it, but doesn't have to be exclusively in the office.
