Thanks guys for all the comments. I'm glad you all found it funny. And yeah, "1 page" was part of the hook. I'll definitely take y'alls advice about formatting. PEACE!.



Hi Tolofari,

I'd like to produce this. Would be great to discuss with you?

Cheers,

Lol cheers Lib    I’ve been slack with the Owc’s and reading scripts but I was trying to get this done. Started in May last year lol.  It was originally gonna be a comedy like ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ but I was struggling with it so l left it for ages. Decided to go full on horror for it.

The main characters are all real people and personalities that I trekked with in Nepal in 2017. The Nick char is me as having two Steves would be confusing. And the Ben is based on a workmate.  The Doc is fictional but a nod to another Aussie I met over there lol.

My writing with both this and my shark script from last year has become more open and visual.  No longer care about unfilmables! &n...

A warning about the Get it Made contest   (reply) Posted by: Warren
Date Posted: Yesterday, 4:00pm

Quoted from ToggleOff
I recently noticed this post and I can attest that, over 2 years later, Get It Made X (GIMx) is not a scam. As a matter of fact, my proof-of-concept (POC) film is being shot by founder/producer Matt Boda on 2/1/22. Yes, if I were a filmmaker I could shoot this myself, but I’m not, I’m a writer.

Matt had called me as well after my short script placed in the top 10 of the annual contest you mentioned (another placed in the top 100). He explained right away that he was forming a new fee-based group called Get It Made X. His excitement and unique vision for this new group to launch in January 2019 which would give writers the opportunity to create POCs excited me. A POC is a marketing tool to sell the larger completed s

Logline Review/Help   (reply) Posted by: SteveClark
Date Posted: January 18th, 2022, 8:34pm

Quoted from Lon


I don't know who started this modern trend of loglines that contain multiple sentences with superfluous information, but it entirely defeats the purpose of what a logline is supposed to be. A logline is one sentence, 25-30 words(-ish), that establishes protagonist, goal, conflict, stakes.

As such, your first sentence is pure exposition and doesn't belong. Your second sentence is actually a logline. You just need to tighten it up a bit.

Protag: real estate agent
Goal: save town, win love
Conflict: duplicitous client
Stakes: town suffers, protag loses lover

Take it from there.


I pretty much wrote this as not just a logline, but more to give others a bit more info to see what...

This is for a youtube channel(https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCubBke2vIUwi221RMTlFqtw)
There's no pay.
All that can be offered for now is an IMDB credit.

Note that I used "creative" in the description. We're not fact checking this stuff.
What is needed are creepy mysteries, true crime, unexplained phenomena.
As much as possible, we want a story to tell. By that I mean we should try to have a person or people that we get to know a little and care a bit about, there should be stakes and mystery that builds to a conclusion. Story.

Mr. Ballen's channel on youtube, which has 5 million subscribers, is an ideal model.

Our latest one gives an idea too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QaLq0rDG1s

Logline Review/Help   (reply) Posted by: Lon

Quoted from SteveClark

Amanda, a savvy real estate attorney, travels to small town Cedar Ridge to broker the sale of a Christmas tree farm, where she falls for Jake, the owners son. But she’ll have to muster up all her courage to save the town and her burgeoning romance once she realizes there’s more to her client than meets the eye.

Short Film Fund | Spring 22 | Your Story On Screen Posted by: ShoreScripts
Date Posted: January 18th, 2022, 9:16am


THE SHORT FILM FUND SPRING SEASON IS NOW OPEN!

The Short Film Fund is more than just a screenwriting contest. It's an opportunity to get your script produced.

The script is the beginning, not the end. If the screenplay is the blueprint for the film, then the writer's ultimate goal is to see that film produced and distributed.

Shore Scripts has commissioned 14 short films through the Fund that have played at some of the top film festivals around the world including Cannes, Tribeca, and BFI London, and have won major awards including a BAFTA. The writers have gone on to gain representation, sell and op

Fiction Podcast Scriptwriting Contest | Final Deadline JAN 21st

In 2020, we launched our Fiction Podcast Contest and awarded two winning scripts $5,000 each to produce their pilot episodes.

Earlier this month, one of those pilots, FOOTLIGHTS: THE TRUE STORY OF OLIVIA MABEL, written by Ian McNeny and Martyn Eaden, wrapped their recording in Los Angeles. Footlights stars Ruby Modine (Happy Death Day, Shameless) and Jamie King (My Bloody Valentine, Sin City).

Just like last year, this year’s two winners will each receive $5,000 to produce their pilot episode, plus $1,0

Yeah, I think you did read this. I revised it, changed the title and will be querying on it shortly. Thanks for checking it out. Good stuff you came up with here! Thanks. And I’m not too sure about name dropping, either. Sometimes it feels right, other times wrong. Anyway, off we go!

Interesting that most loglines for Hallmark type movies have the titular character's name in the story's teaser (a no-no in conventional spec screenplays. Conclusions are often given re love matches too.

Steve, I think you could pack more punch with the second line just by rearranging it.

Amanda, a savvy real estate attorney, travels to small town Cedar Ridge to broker the sale of a Christmas tree farm, where she falls head over heels for Jake, the owners son. But she’ll have to muster up all her courage to save the town and her burgeoning romance once she realizes there’s more to her client than meets the eye.

Hey Anthony,

Oh man, didn’t realize how many years ago this script was written. As I’m reading the thread I saw a ‘Wonk’ review in there and I’m like; “huh… is she back?” err, no.

Anyway, thought I’d go into this blind, vis-à-vis, not reading the script before watching…  glad I did. Humorous and whimsical, yet… urbane, I really liked this, they did a great job with your story idea.

Another one for your script-ography and something to be proud of for sure!

Hey, Jon. You around to discuss? I'm a big RE fan, so I can respect the passion it takes to write a feature fan-fiction. But this has a lot of issues. If you are around on the boards, I wouldn't mind helping you out with some of the basics of screenwriting.
