I don't see the point in DNS myself.

It removes the reviewers score from the weighted average, if anything it benefits the writer rather than hinders them. Going to extremes, if every reviewer bar one felt a script pisses all over the criteria and so DNS, but it rang true with the final reviewer and they scored 4 across the board... The average is now 4, right?
Removing yourself entirely from the scoring of a script feels like a cop out to me

Quoted from Warren


If I see the attempts at comedy (or any genre for that matter), I'm saying it was there.  I put up a list of the types of comedy earlier, there is a really broad range.

People keep using the word DQ. The way Sean has this set up, you canít be DQ'ed for anything, and itís just the difference between 1 and 5 points.


True. But it would be better if we could grade this 1 thru 5 too. For years I have participated in the NYC Midnight contests, both screen and prose. They're not cheap...like $55. It's similar, you get a genre, location, object. The judge's notes are fantastic. Granted, they are paid, but they really are good. And none of them are looking for reasons to dismiss scripts based on criteria. If you get it close enough you're ok.

The overwhelming percentage of scripts here had a bobblehead that was prominent, a shrink's office, and something close to 2 genres. Yet it's amazing to see so much of that questioned. But I guess that's what happens when writers judge each others work in a competition. There's a tendency to look for reasons to dismiss. All par for the course.

I can't spend this much time on these things the next few rounds. I want to complete my novel by the time I get my next health scan in mid-July.

I said something similar but deleted it because when I read it back it didnít make sense to me.

But yes I agree with this.

The spread on the comments is pretty big, from 13 to 31. I realise some of that is back and forth but that still seems large considering voting ends soon? Doesnít it? Oh and Dustin didnít enter.

I guess some might be cashing in on the fact that you only need to read half not to lose any points.

I thought that was the case as well. I'm not sure where the "tomorrow" thing came from either.

Can we get some clarification?

I counted 25 names on that list but only 20 entries in the first round.  I guess some people found the fusion thing a tough nut to crack.


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