I'm giving it a go. I had to start again upon reading the preferred age restrictions. I can write PG-13, but I have to admit it's a bit of a dampener. Can you show a female's breasts in PG-13? Can anyone actually die?

I'm not used to writing horror for kids, so to that end, with research being a writer's best friend, I did a little studying on previous PG-13 horrors. So, if you're a little stuck like I was, then this link may help:

The guys at the comp said PG13 or R, anything other than an X (NC17), so I think violence and/or nudity is fine in an R rated film...

Here's the Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_Picture_Association_of_America_film_rating_system

Fifty Shades and Mad Max were both Rs this year.

I'll see where it goes. I'm still in early stages and thinking of turning the concept into a comedy. I have my characters and the plot basically mapped out. Just not sure on how to deliver the tone yet.

Go Dena!!! If anyone can do a feature in a month, it's you!  

I'm out, because it seems I always find more fun things to do.

32 days is almost 5 weeks (being very optimistic). At 10 pages a day, that's a tentative draft in 10 days tops. That gives 3 weeks for polishes even if started today. Just got to put the graft in. I'm around 20 pages in, started the actual writing a couple of days ago.

The only comps worth entering are the ones where a film gets made at the end of it. Hopefully more of these types of opportunities come along in the future. Thanks again to Anthony for finding this little gem and sharing it.

Pleasure Dustin (all) and I agree... this type of competition should be encouraged!

I'm 45 pages in and hoping to get a first draft finished by end of the weekend... though that may be hangover dependent.

Have submitted to Jameson short contest, and might get one more draft of Impact 50 script in.

Hoping then to get the first 10 pages done for Red Planet prize before deadline on 22nd.

Didn't expect Xmas and New Year to be quite so busy!

Only just finished the first draft. Story is good, just need to tie up a few loose ends and make the writing better in the places where it is weak. Also, surprise, surprise I need to rewrite the first ten to better incorporate where the story goes.

All in all this will be an effort that I'll be very happy with come the deadline. Hope everyone else is on target too.

I'm planning to start 3rd draft next week, kinda like what I've got in concept but want to switch round a few things and inject some more humour... Working in TV script this week.

Sounds good. I have a little humour in mine too. If I don't win then I hope you do.

I'll be submitting mine today as I'm away tomorrow. Interesting that you used that character from the theme park as I have too, albeit by his 'real name', Dr Carver.

Good luck, mate.
