Quoted from Scar Tissue Films
I've really struggled with this one. I didn't have the room to build things like I wanted, but I've worked HARD on it to get it down to five pages. I already know what some of you miserable sods are going to say about it, but there's some great stuff in there!


Excellent! Now, can you make a 1 minute version for a Superbowl ad?

Quoted from Dustin
If that's all that's stopping you, simply wedge one in... not literally... well, yeah, literally...

No, not only that. I rushed one in last week, but this week I'm definitely out.

Good news and bad news ó good news is my wife is getting discharged from the hospital this afternoon. Bad news is by the time I get her home and get her acclimated and comfortable, Iíll have maybe an hour to write something.  But Iím going to do it, I think. Even a mess getting all 2ís is better than not entering if I understand the scoring. And even if Iím wrong Iíd still rather enter something than not. Just be gentle with me!

Happy to hear the good news, Gary.

Don't sweat it when it comes to rushing your entry. Mine will be pretty rough as well. Lol. 8 hours to go and I've only got 1 page.


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.

FADE IN:

EXT. CITY STREET - DAY

Dead bodies everywhere. Even the cockroaches are dead.

In the foreground, an airplane had crashed into a billboard for hand sanitizer.

A tumbleweed blows by.

FADE OUT.

So glad to hear she's going home.

I'll happily donate my full script... or points. (And, no... not because I think it's a stinker! Though, you never really know until the reviews roll in.)

But, I bet you can bang out 5 pretty good pages in an hour or two.

You got this Gary - a nice little one pager: I had a flight one time and the lavatory was out of hand sanitizer. It was horrible. The end.

I want to lodge a protest, as apparently Frank has hacked into my computer and stolen my script.

On vacation. Can hear the Atlantic ocean as I type. Got a script done. I love the idea, but need many more pages to make it work. Hopefully it works well enough for people to get through. Several didn't get through my last one!

I did not review 3 scripts. Sorry, ran out of time. Hopefully I will get to them after vacation.
