Script Frenzy Contest
|Deadline:||Apr 30, 2012|
We have a tradition in these parts of doing a NaNoWriMo contest once a year. The entries are unedited, and sometimes a little crazy, but are always interesting. This year we've decided to start a new tradition along similar lines: enter the Script Frenzy contest.
If you're not familiar with NaNoWriMo or Script Frenzy, the idea is basically to spend an entire month writing your donkey off, and end up with a finished written project. For the more famous NaNo, it's a novel. For Script Frenzy, in case you couldn't guess, it's a script. It can be a movie script, a play script, or any other kind of script that catches your fancy. You can... Well, perhaps you'd just be better off reading the full description on their website. The short of it is: 100 pages of script written between April 1st and April 30th.
Since scriptwriting is a bit different than fiction, you may want to check out a few of the following useful resources if this is your first foray into the art.
- Script Frenzy's how-to guides
- Screenwriting.info - How to write a screenplay
- Tim Stout's Graphic Novel Script Format
- Jonathon Dorf's Playwriting 101
Once you're armed, dangerous, and writing, come post your first 2000 words of script for our Script Frenzy contest. Unedited? Unrealistic? Unlikely? UNPOSSIBLE!? We don't mind—bring it on.
