Have done one page of a serious soppy one lol.

Dustin, I read both of yours.  The hanging one is written ok but it's pretty obvious early on how it will end.

The radio station one was good. Even thought it's all dialogue, it comes over nicely. Very reminiscent of a scene in The Stand novel, where a DJ gets stopped by the army from broadcasting as Captain Trips becomes full blown.

Someone said it, maybe you, that this project calls for something outside the box to get noticed among what will be thousands of entries

I have 6 ideas.  Since they are so short, I think I will do them all, then let you guys rip them apart and make my choices.  If they all have merits, I might enter them all.  It's only 50 bucks...

Just a thought, if you want to try your scripts out here first then you could put them on dropbox or Dustin's server and link them in this thread, as already suggested. Alternatively you could also submit them to the short section of this site and get quite a bit of feedback...or do you think that might overload the short section with a load of 2 pagers and peeps won't be happy?

Quoted from Dustin

To that end, I've written something a little different, it's called Impactee.

http://theimpact.create50.com/scripts/55831c893838333c0d090000

Log: A radio DJ discovers that there are more than two ways to deal with the impact.

Another solid entry from you Dustin. I like the idea of the DJ staying on at his post. Kind of like a modern version of the band playing on as the Titanic sinks. I wasn’t 100% sure at the end that he went to join the plane party or did he have another idea?

Quoted from Reef Dreamer

me? i thought i would go serious with the following no hoper

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32393279/the%20world%20today.pdf

cheers


Loved this. Made me chuckle and reminded me I need to do a funny (or attempt to anyway) entry…if I can think of one. So glad she wasn’t interrupted having a poo either.

Bill, I think I've found a typo, but I can't be sure:

BRUNO
And to balance the panel, a member
of the general pubic, Sharon Lost.

I could be wrong, lol.

On a TV SCREEN a huge light blazes through the sky until a
huge explosion.

I'd get rid of one 'huge' or the other, or replace with another word.


Certainly different and worth working on some more. I felt at first as though the ending was stuck on, just too easy... but there is actually irony in it, so it works.

Good luck with it.

I'm going to back out of this competition now anyway. Apparently you have to conform to a certain standard which means loving the same scripts the organisers love. If your opinion of one of the stories they love is average then you'll be reminded of the rules.

I did have a bunch of ideas for this thing but I'm not going to waste my money entering any more. Nor indeed, my creative space.

I've just written a 6 page short that I'll upload here tonight some time. I think Don uploads on a Sunday. I'm also finishing a mid grade novel for the 9-12 age range. I'm at 35K right now. Also got three features that I'm at first draft stage with for that Carson 250 thing, I know I can only enter two, but it's nice to have three to choose from. Two of them are pretty similar in tone. So it's not like I haven't got enough to work on already.

Fook 'em.

thanks - i knocked this out for some fun. not sure its appropriate for the Impact. I think they want 'normal' type scripts. Anyway, i've just given it a tidy up for the sake of it.

ill check out what they mean by those rules.

i can imagine they want to avoid the angry troll demolishing the competition but they only have themselves to blame for a less than clever system. Anonymous is far better as seen at MP.

I said I liked the story but found it not having enough substance to satisfy me. It's basically about a mother and a little girl's last moments, the mother makes out like all is fine, when really it isn't. Very easy shit to write as it doesn't take much thought. But, put a cute little kid in anything these days and people fall all over it. I was polite... but then for some reason, one of the organisers felt the need to remind me of the rules on language barriers, after the writer had specifically asked for proofreaders, and also a reminder that the organisers are looking for portraiture as well as traditional stories.

With portraiture, I'd expect some deeper hidden message, something for me to think about. Some irony, or cryptic message... so I was left unsatisfied in regard to story. If they don't want honest reviews they shouldn't allow the stupid system. I absolutely hate when somebody argues with my review, like because they have a different opinion, I'm wrong. I don't care about anyone else's review. I wouldn't quote them and tell them their opinion is wrong. In this case it was one of the organisers. I thought I was reviewing based on my personal taste, not the personal tastes of the organisers. He loved it, I found it average. So what? Why reply to my review at all? Just simply state what he thinks and leave it at that.

I don't like the idea of the organisers involving themselves in reviews that simply differ from their opinion. I honestly don't see why my review mattered so much he felt the need to respond to it.

I pay to enter a script yet they still demand three reviews for every script you enter, yet you can't review how you like, you must make sure that whatever your review says, that it agrees with the organisers' opinion.

It pissed me off. I pay, help them make money, yet I'm not allowed to say a story is average when it actually is average?

I checked out some scripts there. They were average, but they were all rated 5 stars. I guess you have to be very nice and vote 4 or 5 stars? But, then what do you do when you come across one that is fantastic? Ask for more stars?

Here's the offending review... as you can see my review is respectful and polite. I simply say that it's too simplistic for my tastes, but that it's a nice effort. I even gave it 3 stars.

http://theimpact.create50.com/scripts/556b282538383327b56a0000

Somebody has obviously reported my review, despite the writer appreciating and respecting my viewpoint. So it's some other little snide and not the writer that has reported it.

Fair enough, there are plenty of idiots about, I just didn't take the organiser for one too.

for once dustin i thought you were calm and collected. i really didnt see ANY issue with what you wrote.

they really have set up some fake reality over there.

ill still take part, because i don't give a @@@@ but its not the best

oh and funnily enough i suddenly get an email flogging a writers course just after i signed up.

Mind you they have to make money i suppose, just wish it was little more upfront

Certainly seems a bit odd/off mate!

I'm also not sure if the scores and reviews actually matter... website says that they select the scripts, it's not public vote as far as I understand it.

Then again, I've seen people on here criticise other people's reviews - there was at least one in the last OWC.

Crap though!
