LOL - I used him as both Dr Carver and Dr Psycho

Have we inadvertently written the same scripts?

Does yours feature a 3D printer?

For those interested, the below has just come out on email from contest organisers...


Dear Contest Writers-

The contest was an utter success using anyones standards, thanks to you!

Contest Notes
A bit about what you and your fellow writers and their submissions:

Genres
Submitted genres ran from standard "cut-n-slash"-horror, to time-traveling-horror, crime-horror, psychological-horror, to romance-horror. Some very cool ideas indeed.

Source of Material
A couple modified what they had, and submitted within 30 days of the contest, while others wrote original works straight through to a couple days before the end.

Location
All over the world- from Iran, Cameroon, and the UK (Scotland, Wales, and England), to the US (New York, Indiana, California- and of course, Ohio).

Experience
From no experience writing at all, to professional with optioned and/or produced works.

The Next Steps

1. Visceral Films staff will read each screenplay- Once for "the read", then again for analytics- how does the screenplay work in terms of overall project fit, characters, locations, props and elements, etc.. Because it's hard to compare someones' "I liked the story" with someone else's "I liked the story", we convert the elements into metrics assigned to help in the scoring. Each time a reader (which could be a staffer, a department head, or a Producer or investor) reads a script, they fill out a reader report and collect metrics. All submissions will be read and a down-selection to a "final 3" will occur by February 10.

2. On February 10, the final 3 scripts will be sent to our partners and our investors for final selection by February 15.

3. Early February 15, we will reach out to the winning writer to go over some last minute details (ensure acceptance, eligibility, schedule, etc..)- if everything is a go, we will announce to the world. If for some reason, we cannot reach the winning writer (we will reach out using email first, then follow-up by phone), or we cannot go forward with the number 1 choice for whatever reason, we will contact the number 2 choice.  A winner of the contest will be announced.

At Visceral Films, we strongly believe in the story and appreciate your efforts.

Good luck to you all!

Regards,

Scott Wohlstein
Visceral Films

I went for high concept. The mention of the 3D printer leads me to believe you've also gone high concept here.

But no, I wouldn't use the 3D printer idea now, even though I did one day want to write a story where a 3D printer features heavily and I still have the idea card on my board, I kinda see that as yours now. I like to be as original as possible. If I ever do use it, it will be for something completely different.

yep plenty of ways to use 3D printers and all sorts of modern tech to give things a twist.

And looks like we won't have to wait too long for the results on this one, which makes a pleasant change!

I came in as runner up...


"Dr. Psycho's Terror Night" placed 2nd in the screenplay competition.

Your screenplay was the reason why the selection process went longer than intended. You did a great job and truly created a serious competition between 1st and 2nd place. In the end it was just 3 points that made the difference.



Oh so close!

SO......CLOSE!!

Oooh that must sting. Who's the winner? Want me to send the boys round with the baseball bats to duff them over?

Congratulations though, as runner-up you should get publicised and hopefully will get some recognition and work off the back of this.

I'd be over the moon regardless - good of them to let you know how close the race was.

Great title too. You should feel very proud.

P.S. Commiserations, Dustin, but least you were in there too. You got it done, no small feat with that kind of deadline.
