Hey all,

Theyíve scrapped the star rating system. You can still click the stars but they don't work.

Iíve just posted a third entry, if anyone fancies checking it out.

Title: ARMAGEDDON TOO Ė DEEPER IMPACT

Logline: This movie is missing something, it needs Bruce Willis! (I notice Iíve made a typo on the logline online, doh! Iíll fix that in the 2nd draft.

http://www.create50.com/scripts/55f56ef13838337e14000054

Thereís also another competition by the same company called the Twisted 50. This is short stories though, not scripts. Iíve dusted of my prose skills and had a go if anyone is interested.

Title: No TITLE

Logline: This is not a story. This is a battle for your soul.

Okay, then... here's mine!  Dammit, I wish they weren't waiting until year end for any decisions!    Granted, I'm pretty happy with these.  Though I'd of course jump on any terrific tweak ideas (where possible.)  And these can always use another look!  ))

Yup, they are announcing the finalists soon. If they follow the same routine as they recently did for Twisted, it won't be the final 50 but the first cut out of the 2000+ scripts they had. With Twisted they reduced it by about half, so out of 500 stories, 259 made it to the finals. The final 50 of Twisted is also due to be announced....soon. They said that a month ago lol.

Regarding the feedback, similar feedback was given for Twisted (from the same judge) and yet the final 259 had plenty of stories with elements the judges seemed to be advising people to avoid. So if your scripts is one of the 'Zeitgeist stories' I wouldn't get too worried.  

All I know is with so many scripts and 52 slots available (there's 2 wildcards apparently) it's going to be a throw of the dice.  Good luck to all that entered. I hope to see some SS writers in the final 50!

They're about to launch a new competition too, called The Singularity... Believe it will be another like the Impact with 2 minute scripts...

I'm keen to see the next round of The Impact as I intend to re-purpose on of my shorts and submit it elsewhere should it not progress... Fingers crossed of course.

Hi Anthony -

Nifty!  And from what I understand (should a script not progress - which of course we hope they will), they can be used as long as it's not under the title "Impact"?  )  After all, the concept of a meteor hitting Earth is certainly not unique.  And a good story IS a good story..?

Cheers,

Yeah, my 2 entries weren't listed in the "we've seen too many of these" either.  It was funny, a few of the ideas that I had at the beginning WERE in those ideas.  Thanks SS for having me move on from them.

Not saying that my ideas wouldn't have been good, but, I don't want to fight the 75 other scripts of the exact same idea.  

I submitted 2 stories:  The one about the asteroid being alive and the superhero one.  

Perhaps we can get a list of all the SS peeps who submitted something.

Are you guys excited for the Singularity?  I admit, I'm kinda baffled a bit on it.  I guess I need to read a story or 2 to get the idea for what they want.

Good luck to all.  I'm hopeful that SS put on a great showing for this event!!

Dan

One of the judges let slip in blog comments that he was put off by a Ďsmugí profile picture and tempted to click no straight away. This also revealed that some of the judges have entries in Impact and Twisted and people are very surprised that the judging isnít being done on completely anonymised scripts and stories. Itís hard to imagine thereís any impartiality under such circumstances.

Iíve got 3 scripts in the mix but Iím not giving myself any false hopes. Although my scripts were not guilty of any of the points raised in the blog, the same judge made similar comments in a blog about Twisted 50. My stories again did not fall foul of the points raised but I still didnít make it to the finals.  

Not giving up though. Iíve an entry in for Twisted Vol 2 and Iím planning more for Singularity.

As for Singularity itís not a script writing competition. It is going to be a  book of short stories based around a timeline of events leading up to a ĎSingularityí occurring in 2066.  I already have one story written (an old one which fits perfectly that Iím updating). I also have a short sci-fi script which also seems to fit perfectly so Iím going to attempt to do something Iíve not done before Ė adapt my screenplay and turn it into a short story; which should be a great exercise for me.

Just one more thing about the Create50 initiative in case you are thinking of entering any of their competitions. They will never remove your story or script from the website, even if you do not make it to the finals. They have confirmed this is simply not going to happen, although you will of course retain copywrite.

Just bear this in mind as it makes it impossible to sign any exclusive options or to enter any other competition that specifies the script/story should not be published anywhere else.

I expect some people may object legally to this notion but time will tell, it always does.

They're a bunch of greedy wankers. They don't care about any end result, they just want the cash from the build-up. The film will end up shit. They've found a good business model... a twist in the usual way we are suckered, but they're just more of the same old shit designed to make money from the hopes and dreams of writers. Fuck 'em.

I haven't submitted a story, but, as far as the 2 entries that I sent in, they are so specific that I doubt that I could, or would, create a story from that.  It is slightly troubling and now, I might not want to submit a story b/c that could be changed into a screenplay.  I don't know if your stories in a different medium (novel vs screenplay) would violate any inclusive contest views.  I'd imagine that'd be a question for a lawyer.

My understanding is that if your story or script don't progress then the copyright is yours... so no one should be able to use your story or script, BUT they could I guess copy it and write their own version... as they could with any script you submit on here.

In terms of Impact 50 and announcements... this just pinged into my inbox...


The Impact 50 Finalists will be announced on March 1st at 11am UK time. They will be announced on the Create50 blog.

The finalists are NOT the final 50, but they are the scripts that the judges and readers placed at the top of the pile.

We hope to follow up with the final 50 by the end of March (ish).


(There was some other gumpf, but that's the gist of it)

Yep, I saw the same thing.  It asked me to join Thunderclap, which I did.  

Hey, what time is 11am for the states?  I'm on the East coast...

Thanks

Never submitted the one I wrote for this. Forgot all about it to be honest.

Best of luck to those who have entered.

I unsubscribed from their emails. Good thing too, as they're now spamming for affiliates. So now, whoever owns Thunderclap wants access to our daily lives too. Why? Why can't they just inform people through the multitude of spammy emails they send? Why the necessity of adding a third party nobody actually needs?

Jump on the bandwagon... £5 per seat. Toot-bloody-toot.
