I have an idea.

Itís a terrible idea, but itís mine.

Not quite done typing it up, but looks like five pages might just contain this thing.


Feature-length scripts:
Who Wants to Be a Princess? (Family)
Glass House (Horror anthology)

TV pilots:
"Kord" (Fantasy)
"Mal Suerte" (Superhero)

Additional scripts are listed here.

Haha, Dream, haven't you thought about a sequel? --- I guess at least, it's title name heaven. Sink Two, revenge of the Shits or etc.. It'll be pretty vulgar.

I will be changing my title and logline as soon as week 1 voting is done, and yes, this will be a sequel to my 1st.

You think you know mine...you may be right.  I don't know anyone's so far.

I tried to disguise my writing in week 1.  In week 2, you will all be stumped...even Stumnpzian!




To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Just a guess of course but I've noticed a style I could connect with you, yes. It's even the most memorable story of the round for meÖ so I hope I'm correct. Not saying that someone should write that kind of entertainment though. It's truly a testament of misbehave, haha

Phew, I think I'm done. Way too soon to submit though. I better let this one simmer overnight. At least until I sober up. Tanqueray and tonics tonight.

WWJD?

What would Jeff do? Damn the torpedoes!

But maybe I'll want to change my title. Or logline. Or font.

The five page limit when dialogue and characters are the main criteria is hard. Too hard imo. Dialogue uses so much space on the page.

Got mine under 5 pages. Holy Hell that was tough. I like what I've got. Definitely different than my usual.

I've got a strong feeling people will be both offended and disgusted by it. I blame Sean.


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.

Comedy doesn't mean dialogue-heavy. Just look at Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd. An inventive writer could use just one charcater, the whistle and the sewer. Minimal dialogue... if any needed at all.

No matter what you do... 50% of the writers here will not laugh once while reading. Many will not even crack a smile.

Quoted from Warren
I'm drawing a complete blank at this point, haven't even got a seed of an idea.

I'm thinking I might be out :/

I know I still have time, but damn this is a tough one.


Come on Warren, you can do it!

Get that thinking cap on. What different types of whistle are there? Different ways of getting into a sewer? Mix in another genre, Romcom - meet cute in a sewer. 50's horror parody - creature from the black sewer.

Get it written!

Dialogue and Characters are 40% of the Criteria in the comp. Having minimal dialogue is risking it because even with the best will in the world, it's hard to give high scores for Dialogue if there isn't any,

I mean, none of this matters. It's just for fun. But you try to play up to the rules and the way they're laid out, there's an inherent bias towards wanting good dialogue, not just dialogue that works for the story.

Scar - it's quality of dialogue that's been scored, could technically get a 5 with just one killer word.
