Interesting.

I think if I had to pick one favorite, it would be Obsessions.  Should have known that was Pia's; the peeper in it is the first cousin of the peeper from Be My Valentine

Okay, Trojan, fess up - was your protagonist dreaming Edgar or not?

And of course Cam17 wrote "One For the Road". On the heels of the brilliantly funny "Santa's Sleigh Ride Saga"...

He's weird but reviewing your own script is a traditional sort of OWC thing.

Of course I did. If I didn't, it would be a dead give away.  Everyone reviews their own scripts, don't they?  At least most...

Well, for those who read all (or most) reviewing your own script preserves anonymity.

If you review every script but one, then it is easy to narrow down which script is yours.

If you only review 2 or 3 scripts -- and one of them is your own -- yeah, that is kind of weird.

Not me - I read every single * with the exception of my own, and unfortunately screenrider's, because I couldn't read his font.

I just assumed everyone else was a little too busy to do the whole process of elimination thing on 30 scripts...

Ok guys.  Almost time to announce the selectees.  

Since there is a bit of paperwork to do on this before we come up with a final list and it's going to take a couple of days to get the paperwork done, I figured I would give you all something to ponder.  

The short list.

This is a list of scripts that were in the running and were voted on at least once by one of the panel of four judges (who were Bert, Mike Shelton, George Willson and myself).  

A Night to Remember
Ass Spider
Eyes in the Dark
Issues
It Gazes Back
Monster in the Dark
Nefarious
Obsessions
One for the Road
Sanitarium
Shoot From the Hip
Sisyphus
The Dark
The Environmentalist
The Faceless
The Killing Gene
Three Strikes...

Talk amongst yourselves.

Well I'll leave room for two wild cards (plus me, fingers crossed) and say that my 3 favorites were One For The Road, Shoot From the Hip and Sanitarium...

A lot of quality scripts there.  We are quite proud of the talent on this board.

And it was a tough choice -- tougher than you might think -- with no names attached to the scripts, so personal bias played no role in our debates.

Also, note that none of the judges submitted a script -- also to avoid bias.

One last thing:  How well the script lends itself to machinima -- adhering to Cornetto's directions -- will also play a significant role in the scripts that are ultimately selected.

No whining allowed if you did not play by the rules.

It doesn't look like the 3 judges (other than Cornie, who didn't review any scripts) commented on all of these on the short list.

Are we to assume that they did read them all?

IMO, there is 1 easy winner...One for the Road.

BTW, I used a rating system that consisted of a low of 5 X's, to a high of 5 Stars.

Only 7 scripts received at least 1 Star, and only 1 script received above 2 Stars.

One for the Road received 5 Stars from me, and just came across as a really well written, solidly told 12 page horror script.

Yes.

I read all the member scripts -- but got pressed for time, and had to stop dropping reviews.  I'll try to get back to that.

I read a couple of the non-star scripts that the judges brought up -- so as to be informed -- but I have no intention of spending my time composing a review for those.
