Who Wrote What, Writer's Choice and 'final' words on the Feb OWC.

The February 2011 One Week Challenge now draws to a close with the 'reveal' of Who Wrote What and the "Writer's Choice" script..

But first a few words.  Again, thanks everyone who entered.  The question on everyone's mind is "Which script did Rick pick, if any?"  I don't know.  I'm sure Rick is still reading through them and it could be several months before there is announcement, if any.  Rick is under no obligation to produce any of the scripts.  This has been stated at the beginning of the OWC. If there was/is any misunderstanding in that regard, the fault is entirely my own.  

Pseudonyms

Thanks to Daren J Seeley for the idea for the pseudonyms used.  If you missed it, the pseudonym theme was Executioneers (mostly European).  Except for Darren, Kevin, Sandra and Janet (who selected her/his own pseudonym), the names were assigned randomly.  Apologies if I've offended anyone's 'gender sensibilities'.  It was not intentional.

Writer's Choice

The Writer's Choice selection is at the bottom of this thread.  Each writer was asked, "Of the scripts you have read, which one did you enjoy the most".  It was left up to the writer's to determine his/her own criteria.  

Thanks to Pia for spearheading this challenge  This challenge would not have happened if it wasn't for Pia

Jesus, Bert. I read the Farm and liked it, but wow, that's some fine writing in this short!

Congrats to Captive, can't buy talent.

I knew I should have given Bells more of a chance. I wasn't up to the challenge as a reader. Just not used to script reading yet.

Great job on White Women and Flesh too.

Several stories were very imaginative, need a little more simmering to tie things together.

Ok, back to work!

No shame in coming in second place to the all-powerful Bert.  Loved the dialogue in Them That's Dead.  Thanks to everyone who gave my script a vote and the rest of you go to hell.  But, no, there were some great stories in this OWC and I look forward to seeing Captive filmed.

I thought your story was very good Ryan.  It was my fav until I read Captive.   If I had the right props I'd ask you if you minded me animating it in Moviestorm.  That wouldn't happen until I get through the rest of the stuff I have to do though.  I bet it will have already been picked up by then but if it isn't you might remind me in a few months.

Maybe I overlooked this but has the writer of Captive even been around? I don't recall seeing a "shootingduck" board name reviewing any scripts...

Interesting to see who wrote what.  Bert's was the easiest to pick out because of the "inferno" inclusion.

He's definitely not part of "the clique".   I love it.   But he did review some scripts.

And to let you guys know, I've been around to all the machinima forums I hang out at and told them about the available scripts here.    If anyone asks you about doing an animation or machinima of your script be nice to them.

Any people who hang out at other film-making forums should definitely let them know about the scripts that are available.  If we band together and get the news of these scripts out there, I'm sure a few more will get made.  

Just post this link...

http://www.simplyscripts.net/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?m-1299380237/

And tell them there's Horror/ Celtic Myth themed scripts available.  Remind them to ask the author before they use the script.

Cheers.

Having decided to stick out of this one, I do not feel I should eliminate myself from the reading process. With so many entries, I am not sure where to start, so if anyone wants a read, just let me know. It's time I got back to doing what I came here for... reading!

I knew Bert's entry was written by a pro -- I pegged Phil or Bert for it in the offset, so I'm vindicated for my guess.  It was easily the best script I've read of the Owc challenge thus far -- And I've read a lot.  I don't think I've read Phil's yet, but I will... If I had I might have to read it again.  This OWC, to me, was weak.  It didn't have near the quality of work the October one had.  Not even close...  

I'm glad I pulled out and let my script take a life of its own -- You'll be reading my "would be" entry here on the boards soon -- Phil and Bert sooner than later.  I'm entering it into the shriekfest 2011 contest shorts cat at 35 pages on March 20th.  Believe, if you wanna go up against it, to have stiff comp.  I don't care who you are -- I've had a few people look at it now -- Aside from my cats, friends and family and they all loved it -- The cats more than most, though.

In fact, it's so good that if I don't place in the event I'll give up screenwriting completely -- Not  that I need money, but yeah... It's that good.

Adonis DNA and Tiger's blood means nothing when you've got Dairy for blood and Yahweh DNA.

This was my fourth OWC. One thing I've never realised is that I've never reposted my scripts with my name and contact info on the title pages. Is this recommended? If anyone ever wanted to shoot one of our OWCs they might not figure out how to contact us. Could be alot of work for Don though.
