Congratulations Phil!!!!

I think you met the challenge well and I thought it was perfect to see the kids trying to investigate what's going on with Mr. Schultz.

Good job!

Sandra

Nah.  At least you didn't botch the title.


It would be cool to know the other scripts that were sent for their review though.

I love words and the fact that when the page is blank...there's nothing there until words are formulated in my brain. Those thoughts...rushing through my viens and out my finger tips, find "life" on the page.  

When people and places come to life...that to me is exciting.

Quoted from Shelton

The three scripts sent to iScript.com were as follows:
Mister Schultz's Zombie Army by Phil Clarke Jr. (selected by the 8 year old)

Bark by Michael Cornetto  (selected by the 8 year old)

Hell On Earth by Stephen Brown  (selected by the 13 year old)

Except for Phil's and Pia's, who used very memorable titles, I didn't know who wrote what until I sent them off to iScript.  The ironic thing is that I had expected my oldest boy to take this very seriously and the youngest to blow it off. It turned out the other way around. The $5.00 to read a script was a great incentive to my money grubbing eight year old who walked away from this with $25.00.  My eldest son read only two full scripts and the first two pages of the remaining scripts.

In short, the scripts were selected by the boys.  Was the selection process fair?  No, it wasn't.  At the last minute, I decided to pull the three scripts I had selected from the iScript pile because the boys were interested in listening to the selected script and I wanted the selected script to be appropriate for the boys to listen to.  Also, in another bit of unfair irony, Phil's script was placed at the bottom of the 8 year old's read pile as I didn't expect him to read through all of them.  Pia's wasn't even in consideration for selection for reasons that I'll leave up to everyone's imagination.

For those of you who say, "It's rigged."  You are right, sort of.  It is a selected script, not a winning script.  As for iScript's selection, it is based upon which work they feel will best present their talents.

Oops, I forgot to mention that the true authors are now listed on the discussion board.  You can also go here: http://www.simplyscripts.com/unpro_short_exercise_10_08.html to see them all together.

Don, your boys learned a good lesson in working and their lessons will prove themselves when your younger son comes home with a $25 prostitute and your older boy comes home with a $10 prostitute.  We'll see who has the last laugh...

I appreciate that, Don.  Really.  Thanks a bunch.




Quoted from Angry Bear
Congratulations Phil!!!!

Since I challenged you, I guess it's my turn to send you something.


A lifesize photo of you in your avatar outfit will be fine, Doll.

I may have missed the assignment and you might have disliked mine personally, but there certainly was nothing inappropriate in it...  



I have to side with Pia on this one.  What was innapropriate about it?
