My first OWC. Very cool. Interesting challenge elements.Writing dialogue is likely my favorite part of screenwriting, so this is a nice stretch. Draft is almost complete. I'd love to see it as a short, so that's at least one person.
Good luck to everyone!

Does the summer heat/coldness have to be a main part of the story or can it just take part on hot/cold Summer's day?

Stupid question, maybe. But I don't want to get torn into for not focusing on the weather enough.

The heat or cold should have some effect on the story or characters. It does not have to be about the weather. However, simply writing that the sun beats down on the desert or that heat shimmers off the blacktop is not enough.

Btw, this is an excellent short thriller with no dialogue. It's a perfect edge of your seat kind of film.

Curve is terrific, had me on tenterhooks - except for the ending. I don't know what to make of it.  Anyone clarify?

This is one of my favs:

And:

Bomb

Can't embed from my tablet, sorry.

I've posted these examples before. Big fan.

The second example Cam posted: too twee for me. I get it that you're trying to inspire people so all good there, but I hope I won't have to read too many advertisement and public service announcement scripts.

* Pia, what was your no dialogue script about for your inaugural OWC in '06? Really curious.

Is something wrong with the submission link? I keep getting an error message saying the "path I've taken is wrong." Weird. That's never happened before. Anyone else having this issue?
