The final 50 have been announced!

http://www.create50.com/blogs/Congratulations-to-the-WINNERS-of-The-Impact-50

Only there's more than 50! I didn't make the initial 50 but one of mine did make it into the Second Chance pile. I'm not sure what that means, maybe it's just an honourable mention but it's nice to get this far in something that had over 2000 entries.

I didn't see any names I recognised from these boards but I could be wrong as I'm terrible with most of your 'real names'. Let us know if you made it through!

Well done Mark, not sure what the Second Chance pile is but I figured it meant a film maker could take a punt on your script if they liked it. Fingers crossed they do mate.

Mine didn't progress, but c'est la vie...

And I'm not calling conspiracy or anything... But at least two of the judges have 'won' as well...

I'm going to expand mine slightly and put it up on here/Inktip etc.

Well done, mate. Sounds like you were up against greater odds than necessary, so extra merit for that. I wonder how many spaces were reserved for the judges own scripts?

Thanks guys. The judges being in the competition has caused quite a stir as you can imagine. From what I've seen, their material is really good and worthy, it just causes all sorts of doubts about impartiality and can erode confidence in the process no matter how honourable their intentions are.

Great job Mark.  If anyone deserves a break, it's you!!

I've kinda soured on the whole create 50 thing.  It isn't spilled milk either.  I have real issues with how the process was done.  How can you be a judge and get stuff submitted?  That isn't a conflict of interest?  

Then, only 2 people read each story, and how many judges were there?  Look at this site, very rarely is a story universally loved.  Each of us should read the story and we get a consensus as to what was the best.  I know for my 2 entries, only 2 people read them.  That's crap.  Same for all of you that submitted.  Total crap.

And a lot of those people who did make it through submitted lots of times.  

I don't know, it seemed fishy.  Dustin was right.  I don't think I will ever enter again.  

Oh, and then lets not forget the bartering that happens.  Totally wrong.  

First off, the names shouldn't appear.  Secondly, each judge should only submit a list of scores for story, technique etc.  And either get a cumulative score or drop the highest and lowest scores.  

I just dropped my issue with Chris b/c there are judges that are well known in Hollywood and who knows, one day, I might need them....

But, yeah, I was quite turned off by the process.  


Please read my scripts:
http://www.simplyscripts.net/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-series/m-1427564706/

I'm interested in reading animation, horror, sci fy, suspense, fantasy, and anything that is good.  I enjoy writing the same.  Looking to team with anyone!

Thanks
Dan

They've posted the details about the filming phase. If you want to produce a script you have to pick one of the top 50. If you have then want to film a second script, you can pick any of the 50 (of course) or you can pick ANY other script and enter it as a wildcard entry. Two wildcard entries will be included in the final feature film.

They've said they will be promoting the Second Chance scripts as the first choice for any wildcard entries but it just feels to me the chances of my script being produced are slim and the Second Chance award is simply a runners up thing.

I was considering producing it myself but I'd have to produce one of the 50 first and then mine and I don't have the resources to do that.

But - If any of you fancy having a go at producing a two minute film which might end up as part of a feature, have a glance through the top fifty and see if any take your fancy - http://www.create50.com/blogs/Congratulations-to-the-WINNERS-of-The-Impact-50

It's a load of bullshit, mate. Even if it gets put into the feature, so what? It's still just a standalone short. The Impact organisers will be taking the full credit, so filmmakers should steer well clear of this, IMO.
