Ahaha...my arch nemesis come by for another lashing, I see.


Quoted from Mr.Z
I was involved on a more intellectual level than on an emotional level.


That is an interesting comment, and you know, when I think about it -- and I hope this doesn't sound to nerd-like -- but this was written more with my head than my heart.

I was just having fun here -- and not really trying to "say" anything -- and oddly (or not) the piece does seem a bit lesser for it.

Anyways, that is one of the lessons I am taking away from this one.


Quoted from Z
The dialogue seemed a bit over-the-top at first, but then I understood that this was an intentional stylistic choice...


Yeah it was.  I had fun taking it as far as I could, and hoped for an acceptable mash of cliche and at least a little that was fresh.  I did want the dialogue to be recognizable for what it was.

Thanks for popping in, Z -- and should MP ever post that pirate challenge, perhaps I've finally got your number.


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

Hey Bert,

Saw this in your sig.

Of course, this is very well written. Itís always a pleasure to read a script thatís dynamic and sleek and free of the spelling and grammar errors so many scripts are riddled with. In other words, itís nice to read something written by a writer who actually cares about the craft of writing. Funny, those writers also tend to write the best material.

Great little story. Nothing much I can say. Iíve decided you must have had some significant childhood experience involving an alcove ha ha.

Good work all around.


Breanne

"Of course", she says.  Ha.  And you and I are of a very similar mindset in regards to the "craft" and the associated trends that you mention.


Quoted from Brea
...you must have had some significant childhood experience involving an alcove...


You would think, wouldn't you?  An alcove and a teddy bear.  I need to start cooking up some new anxieties, I suppose.

Welcome to the boards, Lynn -- I assume it's Lynn, anyway -- and thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts as well!  Very nice to find first thing in the morning, and it made me happy.


Thanks guys!

I'm not sure how I missed this one, but I'm glad I got the chance to read it.

So many good scripts and stories come out of the OWC.

It was a refreshing change to read something like this. The dialogue was pretty neat. The story was pretty neat. And the twist at the end was pretty neat.

I thought something would happen with the teeth. I'm glad it went differently than what I had thought.

Nice job,

Cindy

Good job building up Bert's ego again. He laid an ass-whooping on everybody that OWC. So he'll simmer in his revery until this October. Then I'm bringing a WWF smack-down!

Hey, thank you, Cindy.  A nice surprise to find this today.


Quoted from CindyLKeller

I agree, and thought this February batch was unusually strong.  I think the extra incentive helped people take it more seriously.

Wish I would have had time for the most recent iteration of the OWC, but it caught me at a pretty bad time, unfortunately.

You leave Cindy alone, ya' big bully.

And anyway, that damage is already done -- you might as well accuse her of releasing a sneeze into the Hindenburg.


Quoted from Mr. Empty Threat

I am hoping that October affords me the time to deliver another Dusty Rhodes to all comers -- so better bring your A game.

Making films is hard and a lot of the times films in production never get finished. Many people here at SS that have been approached by filmmakers wanting to film their scripts have experienced the films never being produced. It's how it goes. Why am I going on with this? Well...Bert has given me permission to film Them That's Dead! I loved it the first time I read it. It's been playing in the back of my head for a long time. I think I have come up with a way to turn this into a film. It will be shot in the oldest city of the US, St. Augustine. Very cool place with forts and old buildings and even a pirate ship! The beaches are gorgeous and I think we can pull this off to look like it takes place somewhere in the Caribbean. Obviously changes will have to be made in the script to fit the locations, but bert's cool with that.

Everyone I've approached so far, gets REALLY excited as soon as I say pirate film. Their faces light up and they beg to be part. This time though, it will not be a student film. I'm planning on having professional crew and cast. I will keep a progress report here in this thread and hope you all can get something out of that and I hope bert won't mind.

I'm hoping for sometimes this spring.

Let's make this one happen bert!!!!

Yeah, she surprised me, too.

But I have learned not to doubt her -- and I have agreed to subject myself to whatever she might demand.


Well, OK...actually it is just a promise for rewrites....but a guy can dream, right?

I'm stoked about this one. Instead of begging people to help out. People are begging me to be part.

Had a lot of fun today searching for costumes and life sized prop corpses.... LOL!
