Screen?

Get out of here. Aren't you supposed to be in a timeout? Or are you just gleaming that mine just got booted?

Don't answer that. Obey the rules. Take your medicine. See you in a few...

I forgot about Territory.  That one's a serious contender.

Which means that the 5 left standing are:

Bean Sidhe
Captive
Scottish Lullaby
Territory
Them That's Dead


This is so exciting. I had chosen two of the above, also.

Join the club.  

My guess at the winner; "That's Them Dead"


Two out of remaining three I voted on in the recent poll. (The third being Water) I'm sure the last two standing are Captive and Them That's Dead....but I'm siding with Captive.

This is the only site I am active on, but I had posted my rookie script on Screenplaygold. Someone saw it there and emailed me. Turns out it was a rookie like me. I told him what was going on here, and he came over.

One thing I told him I had discovered, and this contest was the main reason, but I think it's true even without it, shorts are a good way to go for new writers for several reasons. Primary reason is you are much, much more likely to get reads and feedback, which is critical.

If I could do it over, I would not have posted my feature yet. It needs format fixing, and I learned how to do that through this contest.

The other sites you guys mentioned I've never heard of.

But I learned more in a week with this. Appreciate it, thanks.

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.




James, here's a hint. They were two of the first 5 screenplays to be ruled out.

There are even more than that. Check them all out. Each has there positives and negatives. You'll usually get different feedback from each.

If you are looking for feedback on a feature I'd recommend Zoetrope and Triggerstreet. I'm weening myself off a few. I totally erased myself from Triggerstreet. I doubt I'll post a feature up on Zoetrope anymore. I find private review groups can yield the best feedback at half the price of time and effort.

A pompous ass? I don't think I've risen to your standards yet. It's attitude like yours and Dreamscale that gives SS a bad name. Yes, I asked to pull mine once I realized my scripts were in violation of the rules. Can you say that about everyone else?

If you guys want OWC to be a private circle jerk between yourselves you are quickly on your way to making that a reality.
