I think film is a collaborative process, which is something you learn on set. As a bit of fun, this one-on-one might be interesting, but certainly not as a philosophy for working in a true filming environment.

Still, it'll be two head strong people writing scripts that will hopefully be of a good quality.

Quoted from screenrider


Screenwriting is a cutthroat business.  What better way to sharpen the sword than to do it here.  One on one.  Script against script.   Who can tell the better story?  That's all it's about.  And yes, it'll be interesting to say the least.


Instead of a smackdown, why not a collaboration?

All that.

Ok, i have to say this, all of this has become tedious!!

SR, in all the time you have spent issuing challenges and stuff, you could have written a fucking feature by now.

Sorry to undermine my normal Aussie cheerfulness, but I felt like letting some steam out.

Cheers stevie

No, because that would conflict with Cornetto's Screenwriter's Showdown.   Next up is RayW vs. Khamanna

The OWC this time around was a fantastic success. Pia, well done. Everyone here should be very proud of themselves.

Also, Don, you did a GREAT job working overtime on the posting, notification emails and voting setup.

Thanks everyone who posted on my script and to those I posted, It was a pleasure. I only wish I had more time to read more than I did.

Thanks again and I really cain't wait until the next challange.

Thanks Shawn!  

Can't believe how things can turn nasty here if you don't have time to monitor stuff for half a day...

I thought this OWC turned out real well. Just wish I had had more time myself to spend on it. The scripts I read were of good quality and Rick found something he wants to film. All around success if you ask me.

I submitted a rewrite for WISP the day before yesterday. I'ts a bit more in line with my original idea (and that may not be good lol). I suppose it'll pop up in a few days or so. :] Anyone got one they would like me to check out. AGAIN I make no pretense at being some sort of S&E of screenplay reviews.

I thought this was a stellar challenge.
All those that made it happen put forth a truly quality event.
Even though I did not contribute a script, I was thrilled to read everyone's efforts.
SS has really helped me step up my effort to improve my craft.
The opportunity to review and critique here has truly elevated my skills.
Drama and personality clashes aside, all the contributing members rock.
And those that drop off a script and screw off, you're missing out big time.
There's some fierce talent here and you can learn truckloads from members.
So check your ego at the door and let her rip, this dog can hunt.
Thanks guys.

E.D.

P.S. The proceeding gushing was brought to you by cheap bourbon. ^__^

I was bored yesterday yesterday, so I decided to draw a little more blood from the OCW. I thought maybe some of the other participants might want to join me.

No one really wants to read rewrites unless asked as a favor. So I decided to try something different.

I wanted to address the various criticisms and comments, so I decided to write a spin off story. Not a new chapter, as a short should kind of a stand alone probably. I used some lesser characters and a setting from my short to write a new story.

I wanted to create a script that no one would complain "it's not horror". So this one has plenty of blood. The overall tone will be very different too, while some of the theme remains.

I did 9 pages yesterday, but still have not worked out the ending. When I finish, if any other OCW people want to look at it, maybe I will post on a blog and link here so people can take a look. That way I can post it here when it's been refined by criticism.

I thought maybe some of the people active with the OCW might be interested in doing this. I know Wonka is still working on her story, maybe Darren, or Jeff.

Just an idea. No harm in trying.

Mine will be rewritten but it's looking like that won't be happening until the weekend (although, in reality, there are only several additions, and a few corrections).

Has anyone already posted rewritten OWC scripts?  Where are they being posted...shorts?

Haven't gotten around to it yet. It was a great exercise and a good learning oppurtunity. The brevity of it was one of the biggest attractions. It's not on my priority list at the moment, but I might get around to doing it at the weekend. Still struggling with a feature, when I get the time that is!

My rewrite was posted as an edit to the original a couple days ago. I think Wonka's is up too.
