Impressive number of entries! Far less horror than I expected. And is that a western I see!?

Thanks for putting this together, Rene and Don.

Wow, what a great turnout! Thanks for getting the up so quickly, Don.

All links are working with the correct scripts. If you notice anything off, please let Don know ASAP.

Everyone should aim to leave reviews on at least half of the entries. If we all do that, there are plenty of reviews for everyone.

And remember, there are some new people here, so if you see something that's greener than usual be encouraging in your constructive feedback.

I have no idea who wrote what. I'll be leaving reviews too.

Good morning, as Iím new here I have a couple of quick questions.
Is there a time limit on reviewing and scoring the scripts?
Should feedback be restricted to only one remark or is it feasible to make multiple points?

Iíll be honest in my opinions so please be as honest as you can with mine, itís the only way Iíll learn, Iím a big lad, I can take it 😃

Good luck to everyone and kudos to you all for having the guts to submit your entry.


If at first you don't succeed........bribe someone.

Owen, from memory I think Don said the scoresheet will be emailed around the 31st so you'll have about a week to read. Just read as many as you can - some read and comment on them all, some don't. Your best effort is all that's expected.

Make as many points as you like, i.e., what worked, what didn't, dialogue, story, characters, did it meet challenge parameters etc. It's up to you.

People will be honest, don't worry about that. Anonymity tends to elicit only candid reviews, as you'll see.

Be careful not to reveal any clues as to your script. Don't answer your critics in any way - not until the reveal.

33!

That's either a lot of multiple submissions or some of the people who weren't entering changed their minds - guess we'll see.

Solid turnout - looks like a weekend of reading ahead.  First OWC I've been able to enter for a while now.

Interesting mix - thought there would be more horror than sci-fi so that's a surprise.  Even a couple of Viking sagas by the looks of it.  

Getting a shovel vibe from the loglines - I'm predicting lots of shallow graves and death by shovel to the face.  

Happy reading all.

A nice turnout! Just read and reviewed the first one but I'm out most of today. I will attempt to get through them all it may take me a few days though.

I like the idea of the new scoring system - the only downer is that first script I read had no dialogue. It feels a bit...unfair not being able to award potentially 5 points simply because the writer chose not to include dialogue! Writing without dialogue is tricky and requires skill but here it means less points!

I think if there are scripts without dialogue then they should be scored on how effective the script is without it.

E.g. nice idea, no dialogue, but didn't work very well 2/5... nice idea, no dialogue, and writer does a great job without it 5/5.

Just a thought, and no, mine has dialogue

That's a good idea, Anthony.

Penalty should not apply if it's done well sans dialogue.
