It's definitely not CM Hall or Buster...that I'm almost certain of.


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

It is understandable that people choose to work with or hire people that they have worked with before, people they trust. I don't think that should really be a part of the process here, however. It was set up as a Challenge, a contest.

If one's resume and biography was to be a part of it, then do it differently. Invite people to post with their info.

If you want this to maintain its credibility, you'll want to encourage the notion that the producer will pick the script he likes best. Which is what I think happened, but the other remarks suggest something more complicated.

I ask this innocently: how thickly collaborative is a short? How much does the director need from the writer once he decides on the story?

If there is more work needed on a script, and for some reason the author became unavailable, could not another writer step in and help?

I think there should be a little benefit of the doubt given on writers submitting a short. They would for the most be eager to see their work produced, so would be active in the process. But if in the unlikely event that turned out to be not the case, the producer would figure that out quickly, and either get another writer to help, or move on to another script.

There is already a sense in this industry that if you don't know someone and haven't been produced yet, it's very difficult to break in. People enter contests like this because there is a hope they will be a little different. Reading Rick's posts, I had the sense he was being very fair, looking for what matched his vision. I just hope it stays that way in the future.

I honestly didn't have the time to write something. If I had entered, I would have read them all by now.

I'm going to say that after some investigation I don't think it's cm hall or Buster.  

I don't think it's Pia's because I think she might have mentioned to me that she entered - though you never know.   I think you think it's hers because it's written using the same software and machine that she uses.  

Could be ReaperCreeper, though he hasn't been around and he's usually around if he does an OWC.  

So I'm stumped.

I think it's Pia's because Albert Gustaf Dahlman was known as the Swedish Executioner.  Case closed.

So now I'm just wondering when the names will be announced because I want to see who wrote some of these wonderful scripts.

But I think the key to finding out who wrote Captive is to find out who puts FADE TO BLACK at the end of their scripts.

I thought Trojan had already posted that Keaton was not the author of Captive.  He sounded like he had some inside info on that.  Could it be Trojan himself?

So, I'm already wrong guessing it was Whitcroft and, frankly, Captive could have been written by a handful of people.  Doubt that it's Reaper, because as Cornetto mentioned he hasn't been around.  Also eliminated Shelton for that same reason.

Time for Don to pull the curtain up and reveal all.

Mine were Crimson Swirl and Business Before Pleasure.    Sorry, I had Don pull them.   I did it in the heat of the moment.   Won't happen again.   Moving right along --->

EDIT:  Thanks to anyone who gave them a read.   If I didn't get to your script please let me know in a PM and I'll return the favor.

I don't know who wrote Captive; but I do know who wrote the runner up.


"I know you want to work for Mo Fuzz. And Mo Fuzz wants you to. But first, I'm going to need to you do something for me... on spec." - Mo Fuzz, Tapeheads, 1988

it's someone who uses FD7 and a Mac...


How can you tell, Pia? By the way, since I've had a Mac, that weird bolding and whatnot has subsided. Now if it would only fix my writing.

Thanks for the thought.
It's wrong, but it's the thought that counts.

Quoted from pwhitcroft
When I first read Captive I thought it might be Keaton's, because I've read a good feature script of his that is in the same genre.


Nah, my scripts were written the week before for a Uabhos Mythos project that called for Celtic themed scripts. It is going to be a collaborative thing, so I whipped out three scrpts, one got taken immediately. That left me with  'The Gwragedd Annwn' to show people driven by magical influence, that didn't work out. My other was 'Water's Edge' a more subtle piece and one more indicative of my style. Of both of them I think 'Water's Edge' has the most potential. After the thing started I was informed of the rules, so I asked to pull my scripts. Don asked me to keep them in, so I did.

I really want to know which one you wrote Phillip.
