Looks like great minds think alike Coop. We both had a char named Lucas in our Bunny man scripts.

The Villa need a Bunny Man at the moment to scare the shit of our opponents lol


Yes, the Villains definitely could do with a monster bunny up front right about now -- they've forgotten how to bloody score!

And it's great that you picked up on Brock McLean -- I wondered if you'd recognize the name.

Ah! I thought it was just a coincidence lol.  He's an average player, a dead set plodder.

Congrats to the top 4!

Marnie, I would have never guessed The Bitches Revenge was yours. Never ever. Who would? I'm sure that the answer is no one.

Really nice job, everyone. I read 16 and recommended 4. I don't know what I would do if I read all. My favorite was Apple. I think it'll get picked up someday if the writer puts in in Shorts section.

By the way these OWC scripts tend to get lost if they are not in the shorts section, right? Maybe we should submit them to "Shorts" section after we rewrite?

It's been a pleasure participating in OWC. Thank you all for the feedback. And thanks for all the scripts. I learned a lot just reading them.

Before I came to SimplyScript, I heard that reviews here could be harsh. Now I know it's true. Not that I got any of those for my script this time. I personally don't mind them being harsh or soft. Honesty is all that matters to me. However I need to say this once.

There is a difference between being brutally honest, and being just brutal. The former is helpful. The later, even though still helpful, is hurtful. Sometimes we need to mind people feelings when delivering the truth, because delivering it is the point, not offending them. It's not about twisting it, it's about the packaging.

On the other hand, writers, don't take it personally.  No one out there will spend time and effort to read your script then write you notes just to offend you or make you lose confidence. They all mean to help. They're giving you their honest reaction and thoughts on what you wrote. Take them to your mind, sort them out however you see fit. Just never take them to heart. You're here to improve not to get hugs and kisses.

Coop, your review made me laugh out loud. The humor in your criticism was amazing. You remind me of YouTube CinemaSins or HISHE humor.

"The final piece"  deserved the praise, but to me, the best script was "change of heart." Congratulation to all of you for adding a new script to your personal stash.

When I posted my first script on here, I had no idea what to expect. When I looked at the feedback on it from some, it was given a big thumbs down and I felt crushed.

BUT, in hindsight, the feedback was spot on and I learnt a lot from it. Although the feedback on my effort in this OWC was a mixed bag, I was pleased to see that my writing and punctuation had improved, even if my actual story hadn't. Take the feedback as it's intended - one person's opinion.

Well done to the winners and runners up. I think all were pretty much the right choices.

Thanks Don and Sean for organizing, and great job to the top four. Apologies to the folks who thought my feedback was harsh (or entirely wrong), always a few instances. I actually seem to have forgot to submit my vote, but it was roughly the same as everybody else, except with a few other entries like Bill's one which I quite liked.

I agree with this.  If there is more than one way to get the point across, then take the gentler path. It's just the better way to do it. That being said, I've come to realize that brutal feedback is still feedback and that if someone is going to take the time to read what I wrote, then they have absolute license to provide the feedback in the manner they choose.

Thanks to all involved in the creation of these challenges. If not for them, I'd never write shorts. I never get ideas for shorts unless I'm given some parameters to work with and 'challenged'.

Shorts are good because they can act as writing samples, although I'm not sure they can best the first ten of an actual feature (for encouraging people to want to read more of your work), they do serve a purpose. They can also get made, gaining contacts and credibility.

Money sinks, but.

I think it could be the other way around.

I assume that is an actual picture of Ray.

Right?

Sort of looks like a less scruffy Ron Jeremy.
