100 Days by Eric Goren - Drama, Comedy  - Can a situation of bad luck ultimately turn out to be one of the best events to happen in a person's life?  As Richie Deusch steps onto the pavement, hears the explosion of his car, and sees it engulfed in flames, his seemingly mundane existence as a stockbroker changes before his eyes.  Richie has committed a ridiculous error in judgment and finds himself in front of an old crusty judge who gives him a choice of life altering situations: 100 days in a federal penitentiary, or 100 days as a substitute teacher in a hard core New York City public high school.  Which choice would be worse? 100 pages - doc, format

Please forgive the formatting.  On my computer it looked perfect, but for some reason it is completely different on this medium.  Oh well.  Please try to overlook the flaws of formatting.  If you are interested, I have hard copies that are nicely done and formatted.  I could send you one if you get frustrated!  Thanks for reading my script!

You mentioned the formatting problem wher you posted the script on this site. Your writing style on the script is inShruti? You do know it's supposed to be in Courier, right? Your front page should only have he title of your script underlined, then two lines down Written by, then two lines under that your name. The onmly thing that should be on your title page is WGA # whatever and Copyright year whatever on the bottom left. And it's not INT: its supposed to INT. Instead of saying the characer is a  late 20 something, just say he's late twenties. try to stay away from curing in your script. The less yoiu have to write in words like f*** or sh** the more attractive the script looks. Don't write in music into your script, that's the job of the music guy in the movie. Instead, maybe write that a sad song plays on the radio. Page numbers go on the tiop left corner, and remember don't show the page number on the first page of the actual script. And leave a space in between your scene heading and your paragraph of describing whatever. Your dialogue is formatted wrong, I don't know if that's from posting it on here or not. Since it's drama, you're probably going to need to make it closer to 120 pages when you're entirely finished. Good luck!

Ok ok i can agree with christopher on a level, but do not suit your script to a certain genre because usually dramas are longer. If you feel you can tell your story in a 100 pages, then do that.

I'm not saying this to sound mean, I'm just speaking from experience. If you're writing a drama script, 100 pages usually won't cover it. At least go somehwere between 110-120 pages. especially if you're a first-time write trying to break into the business, 110 - 120 pages is more the accepted norm.

I had posted something of a review, Eric, but deleted it when I learned that you posted a script a year ago, left a message in that script's thread, and then disappeared until this script came up.

You have to read/review some scripts, guy.  That's how this board works.

my mistake phil. after READING the script, I thought it would be helpful to the screenwriter for me to give him some tips on writing the script as well as formatting, but it's obvious that you, as well as many others already know all there is to know about screenwriting. i'm sorry i tried to offer to help. have a nice life.

My last note wasn't directed to you, Chris.  It was for Eric.  

Every now and then, we get people who post scripts and expect others to help them with them.  But they don't help others.  I remember one guy, about a year ago, who said that he needed his script reviewed right away, but he refused to review anyone else's.

He didn't last long.

I like the fact that you are reviewing scripts and not simply plugging your own.  I don't even know if you have anything up here.  Keep up the good work.
