These guys' films always scare the bejesus out of me! They're really very good.

Surely you have something suitable, Pia?


Guess who's back? Back again?

I actually wrote them earlier this year and asked them to let others offer up scripts. I know the kind of stuff they like so I might try to think up something.

I'm not sure what the page limit is. If it is 5 pages then I would have to think up something new. If longer scripts are allowed then maybe Daddy's Home would work. It has a creepy mummy baby moment.

Yep, page limit is no more than 5 pages. I'm thinking of having a crack, though I've never done horror. Heaps of time to do it in.
They want the entry in doc from though. Is that like a Word template?

They must have literally no idea about the screenwriting community. Who even writes in word anymore?

I would love to do it, but trying to write a screenplay (even a short) in word would be a nightmare.

Thanks for the post, I love contests, I'll be posting all the ones I come across.

Why don't you use decent software to write it and then copy and paste it into a word doc? I know corel word perfect allows format for format spacing and alterications in every word doc you cna think of. Meaning you can have your general format and then grab, drag and drop your text anywhere on the page that you like.  It's 10 folds better than Adobe Reader and their Suite apps.

I did that here before I was told how to PDF. Doesn't work going from Final Draft to Word. Might work with a different program, but I don't know.

It does if you have the right software... And even if you don't you can space it out yourself. Well, for those who actually know the proper spacings of a screenplay without the software doing it for you.

I agree, I couldn't ever write with word or celtix... But I can write with Movie Outline and then import it into Corel wordperfect Lightning and have it do what I need if all else fails.

Yeah, I know the specs, but it's a daunting task, for what the return is. You know, two and a half from the left here, six and a half from the left there, etc. I wonder why they'd want it in Word in the first place?

Obvious answer - they're idiots... Probably too cheap to outfit their terminals with a PDF reader of some kind or another. People do stupid things all the time. Like, for instance, just the otherday I heard someone downloaded celtix... Craziest damn thing I ever heard of.

It's a decent alternative if you can't afford other screenwriting software and don't want to download it. But, after looking at it, I'm happy with what I use. Lol.

It's not the filmmaker's fault about the .doc format. It is the website they use to run the comp.

The filmmakers are really nice and have already offered to convert the pdf's to .docs

Oh, well, that's cool. So, could it be sent in in PDF format, then?

Why the hatred towards Celtx?
It formats for you, converts to PDF easily and is free.

Did it sleep with your sister or something?
