In a week perfection is impossible, just try and come up with a concept that is so intriguing it draws people in. Something that's cinematic and exciting.
Ultimately the selection (if any! ) will be at my discretion, so let me worry about whether it's any good or not.
I'm not looking for perfection. Just quality. At this point, I'm much more conscious of what I'm writing than I was, say, two years ago and in hindsight, I think a lot of my OWCs tend to suck, if not, are rushed, possibly even my worst work. I'm not a writer who likes to beat himself up so you might as well take my word for it.
There are exceptions of course... I read 5 really "KICK-ASS" scripts in the October OWC. But I also read a bunch of bunk ones too. I'm saying for anyone just going into a OWC, not too different from this one here, thinking a good script is going to be easy to pull off in a week might be rethinking that theory when the time comes to submit them.
Here's the translation "I'm Vodyanoy No one wants to talk to me No girlfriends, except for The Leeches and Frogs --how disgusting; There's water inside of me Maybe that's why they don't wanna talk to me... And I want to fly I want to fly I want to fly so bad...
I know we have to stick with the horror and this Vodyanoy is too lovable) Just wanted you all to take a glimpse. The cartoon is too funny...
1. Anthropophagi - sounds like a cool looking creature, yet one that would take animatronics and good special effects to look anything besides laughable on screen. would you look to write some of these beasts with a bit of Hitchcock type horror for that reason? The less seen is scarier...
2. I'm drawn to the doppleganger. Again, scenes in my head that would have things take place inside a mirror or window that aren't taking place on the reality side of the reflection. Can you shoot something like this?
Second one is (relatively) easy...you just shoot the action twice and edit it together. With a VFX guy on board it would just take a bit of planning.
The first..harder for sure. But someone, somewhere could do it.
I think suspense and tension often make for better films in general anyway...but you've got to have the money shot, at least, with the hideous body/face.
Concentrate on making the story as good as possible and let me worry about that. There will be some young guys out there looking to break into special effects who would love the chance to build something like that for their portfolio, or even maybe an established guy who has less work due to CGI who would rather build it at the weekends than go out drinking.
I notice that to get a job with them, you have to send a CV with 5 examples of your work. So it's people like that you can target...people who have trained and have the skills, but maybe have only three pieces of work and want something "wow" to show the world.
