This 5 page limit is BRUTAL.


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.

Submit it as is. Worst that could happen is lower marks in just the criteria category.

That would have been a smarter choice, yeah.

I thought all of those were going to be 5. One thing I refuse to write is a one-pager. I won't do it!

As great as my mystical, magical powers are, that is one which is beyond the scope of them. However, today is the first day I haven't had to work since April, so I'm happy to update this thread once an hour with a makeshift countdown clock, if you'd like. Not a problem.

That said, you were correct about the time. Currently 14 and a half hours to go.

They're all up to 5 pages long. Aw, Khamanna, you're an alum of MoviePoet. The 1-page contest in June was always my favorite.

Submitted.

I already known what some people are going to say...and it will be valid criticism...but it's a good script regardless, even if I do say so myself.
