Congrats Gary ! Great work my friend.

Thanks Don for an awesome challenge !


Considering how badly I rolled this one out, perhaps it is better to be lucky than good.

On the script side, I really hope to try my hand at producing one of these scripts myself

Wow.  I mean, that was totally unexpected.  There were a lot of great scripts in this challenge so congrats to everyone who entered.

Thanks everyone and thanks to Don for such a great challenge.  Looking forward to May!


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.

My most well received script so far (for how short it was) and I didn't even break the Top 5? Guess I gotta keep trying.

Gary, dude! Awesome. Congratulations. I got quite a few laughs out of your script.

LC, your script was my top scorer. I thought it was fantastic. Not to take anything away from Gary, but I thought yours was the runaway winner for sure. Really well done.
