In case anyone didn't see this on the Simply Scripts homepage:

http://theimpact.create50.com/theimpact#about

Wow, what a great idea. I'm certainly going to give it a try. Anyone else up for it? Any thoughts/comments?

Also curious if anyone here entered the previous contest called 50 Kisses and what that experience was like?

I'll join in, just for the fun of it. Maybe make a film as well.

The end result last time was unwatchable imo. In terms of creating a "feature" film...the process is fundamentally flawed. It is what it is...50 films 95% of which are poor, edited together into one awkward mess.

Good spot.

I got down to the last round of 50 kisses, wasn't chosen, and quite frankly I should have tried harder. And entered more than one. It was a great opportunity.

With this one the rules have changed, and there is a small entry fee, but to me that's another great chance.

I read a handful of the chosen scripts on 50 kisses and the thing that jumped out at me was the need for a central concept that stands out. Writing came second.

Congrats on getting to the last round, Reef. What do you mean you should have tried harder - your effort must have been decent if you got to that point in the comp? Did you ever put that script up on SS?

And does every entry get to read other entries? Sorry about the twenty questions, just curious.

And Rick, what was your experience? Did you enter last time? How do you think it could be organized better to make the final product more watchable?

I brought this to Janet's attention as I'd seen it and already entered a couple. Be good to see one or more of us from here get through to the end stages!

You do get to read each other's scripts, you vote and comment on them too. You can also submit a couple of redrafts too, so if you agree with any of the comments then you can fix it up... Two redraft scan be submitted for free.

I didn't see 50 Kisses but I do think the idea of a central concept will help it be more cohesive, though doubt this sort of effort can ever truly gel...

I think it's a decent idea and at least we know they've already made something using a similar formula!

Yep, I've put in two, as well.  REALLY enjoyed doing a two-pager.  That was a new one for me!!    Highly recommend giving it a shot.  And the price is very reasonable...

I just read your Top Of The World - loved it. You did great!

Two pages is definitely a challenge for me. Will think about it when I've got some time to think about it...

Anthony - I am not participating but did read both of yours.

The first one - A+ - I foking loved it. Very poignant and you did a fabulous job of showing the impact of a catastrophic event from a micro perspective (i.e., what will my baby be). I felt heart broken for these characters in just two pages. This was really perfect dude.

The second one - B-. Again, I liked the perspective of the impact to a single individual, it was just that - unlike the pregnant mothers - I did not feel the same empathy for your character in this one. Would have liked to have him had some kind of conflict (maybe he didn't say I love you to wife or child that morning and needed to speed home to tell them because all of the cell phones were jammed). Something that made me feel particularity for him.

I've just written two scripts for this after reading this thread. I know what I said about entering comps, but this one looks OK at a bluey a punt. I may just enter them.

good for you.

I know these things can be a bit against your instincts.

I'm off tomorrow so will read.  

I will of course then seek to write better scripts, but you know what, we could just help each other with some fine tuning.

Are these public ? because i would wonder about giving decent concepts to others

Got a couple of ideas I'm hoping to work out before the weekend.  Not familiar with 50 Kisses, but this looks like an interesting concept.  Good to see some familiar names up there -- looking forward to reading.

Bill, I haven't signed up yet, but was able to check out a couple of the scripts currently posted. So yes, the entries are open to anyone.  


My short scripts can be found here on my new & improved budget website:
