The July, 2008 One Week Challenge

Quick rundown of the rules:

You have to write a script based on the genre and theme of the OWC, to be announced here.  The script must be in a generally accepted screenplay format.

The script should be no more than fifteen pages.  You have seven days (count the hours) to submit it to the One Week Challenge link.  All scripts must be submitted by 11:58 pm eastern daylight time on July 25th.  This link will help you determine what time it is eastern daylight time.
The authors' name will be removed from the scripts for the first week (or so), and then will magically appear on them...as if by magic.  Don't say if you've entered.

Don't start guessing who wrote what for at least a week.

No betting!!

Don't enter unless you intend to read some of these scripts.

And now for the theme and genre:



genre:  drama

theme:  "The guys at the post office are never gonna believe this."

The quote should be in the script and it should bear significance to the story.  Don't just toss it in there.


Good night.

Phil

Sweet! I'm entering this one.

Just one question--does it have to be strictly Drama or can it have elements of other genres too?

I'm surprised that people haven't chimed in their willing ness to play, or their disgust in the theme and genre.

Of course not Julio! But these OWC's used to create such a buzz that the silence here seems strange.

I am absolutely DISGUSTED with the genre.  With Utah's famous Pioneer Day swiftly approaching, everyone is getting into the holiday spirit.  The fact that you chose DRAMA when everyone was expecting a jolly historical piece is absolutely disgusting and I will not participate.

I say we make our own one week challenge that is more in the Pioneer Day mood.  I can't wait for the 24th and this silly challenge won't burst my holiday bubble.

Are you joking Tyler?  Can't really tell.

I'm a little bit disappointed that it's Drama because the last OWC was Drama.  I'll give it a go if I feel inspired but otherwise it's a miss for me.

Each time I do comedy, people throw little fits.  And with two horror anthologies going on right now, there's no need to do one here.

People are going to throw fits no matter what you choose but that is no excuse for being uncreative about choosing the genre.  If you're going to piss people off you might as well do it by picking something like Mockumentary or Mystery or the hundreds of other choices there were besides Drama.  I know that Drama can encompass may other genres but the thought of writing a drama is so uninspiring. IMO anyway.

I have no problem with the genre but the "quote" chosen for us couldn't have been more cliche/unoriginal. I mean, seriously.

Yes.  I was joking.

The theme and Genre are fine.  If you think it's bland that just means you don't have the tools to spice it up.

Spicing it up is not the problem. Spicing it up to the level I want to is.

I've got an idea but it's more of a comedy. Will try and come up with something.
