Someone turned in a scoresheet, so the standings have changed a bit. I'm now one spot closer to where I expected to be.

Who Wants to Be a Princess? (Family)
Glass House (Horror anthology)

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

I'm surprised with how closely my own scores reflect the standings, with three exceptions...

I'm shocked that Head Space came in 8th. That was in my top 5.

Sprung and The Package were in my top 10, I'm really surprised to see them so far down the list.

I had Head Case up there too but who knows where that one would have ended up.

How is Bobble-ageddon not tied for top criteria? Who didn't think that counted as a comedy and a sci-fi?

Maybe they didn't notice the giant bobblehead statue heading for Earth

Two steps to writing a good screenplay:
1) Write a bad one
2) Fix it

List has been updated. It's not a fully-cleaned up update, because I have to leave for work, but the information is now 100% accurate for the first round. Scores will not be posted until the end. Feel free to discuss your scripts by name. Sorry for the delays.

Great, now I canít remember where each script placed, so still really donít know who wrote what. But congrats to Matthew!


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

I really don't know how any of these scripts could rise. Not a single one stood out. There were maybe 3 that should be on the bottom, and then 17 swings and misses. Not surprising, this was hard. And I worked hard reading these, going back to ones I may have misjudged. I thought the one with the bobblehead husband and shrink kind of stood out, great metaphor and very good dialog. But it also didn't really try to meet the criteria, unless you count carving the dolls at the end. So for me, this was 17 B minuses and 3 C minuses. A good exercise, you never know when quick work is going to just magically come together.

Not exactly shocked with where I ended up, given that I rushed something in just to not have straight 1s. Not saying it was a pisser... it was a real effort, just not one with enough time to get it right.

Hopefully it didn't earn straight 1s.

Congrats, Matt! Didn't see that coming!

Bobble-ageddon and Tucker & Doctor Daleman vs. Crazy were my top picks, glad to see them up there.

Melt and Just Stop were pretty good too.

I guess I didn't score as high as I thought I would, and have quite a bit of ground to make up.

How do i change my title and logline?

Wait until the sci-fi round, write in a time machine, and use that to alter the original submission.

Easy peasy.
