I'm not an MP'er. I just happen to submit scripts there. Probably more of a Zoetrope person.


I used to go there all the time. Still pop in there now and then. I should check in soon .

And on a side note folks that are not moving on. Remember that this is a producer not screenplay contest judge.

Do you ever wonder why a script can win a lot of screenplay contests, but never get produced? Because it was picked for it's story and not it's production value. A heart warming tale of a boy and his dog shouldn't need a 100 million dollar budget. Also you have to keep in mind every director has a team. If the team doesn't feel your story it doesn't matter how good it is, they shouldn't and couldn't do it justice.

So ultimately it is a convergence of a liked story, production value, timing, budget, and magic that gets a script produced. Just keep putting your best foot forward and you'll get there.

MoviePoet is chugging along with about 30 unique entries every month. Zoetrope is all but dead. It's hard, but not impossible to get shorts produced and produced well. A lot of folks are realizing that other than the joy of watching your script filmed, there is no paycheck. I say a good short can only help showcase your talent.

What is this, a damned strip tease?  Make your choice, already.

Of the 25 scripts standing, the next ten to go will be:

A Hazing at Dead Lake

An Bean Sidhe

Bell Tolls

Cailliix

Flesh Won't Be Missed

Revenge of a Sea Witch

The Cries

The Lamb

The Spirit of Ben Macdui

Water


I re-iterate that I consider many of these scripts to have huge potential and this should not be the end of their development.

I would say it's easier to spot someone with SS bad habits, than a person with MP bad habits though.  'The End' really?


I look forward to the reveal. You've been quite the pompous ass this OWC. So I'm looking forward to reading yours, if I haven't already, to learn the new age way of screenwriting.

James

THE END.

Nothing wrong with a strip tease!  Take your time, Rick.


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

I'm more active at Ben Cahan's Talentville as far as other peer sites go. Zoe's screenplay wing isn't dead but it is nowhere near its peak eight to ten years ago.

The decisions are getting harder and harder. We've already lost lots of stories that I believe could make for fine films and this next lot is no exception.

All of these could be developed into great films in my honest opinion, but there has to be a "winner".

The next batch to go:

And I Take You.

Bloodstorm

Foreshadow

Imposter

Monsters

Selvage

Taibhse

The God Stick

The White Women

Wisp


Which means that the 5 left standing are:

Bean Sidhe
Captive
Scottish Lullaby
Territory
Them That's Dead
