Default Fun short screenplay contest, Sep 7 deadline

We haven't had a fun contest for a while... Halloween's still a long way off... anyone in the mood for some scribbling?

Show of hands please.

Suggested theme: Winter is coming.

Edit: deadline is EOD Saturday 7 Sept.

8 pages max (may be shorter, your choice)
Export a PDF file and send to dpaterson57 at gmail dot com
Or export a text file if you prefer, as long as it's readable, I don't mind.

Edit: the entries are here and the results are here.

Started writing something yesterday that might be contest worthy if I can bend the rules enough to make it fit.

Sure.

Any excuse to write something.

OH, WAIT, I WASN'T SHOUTING...

OK, THEN -- SURE, I'M IN!

MORE.

WE MUST HAVE MORE SOULS FOR THE BLOOD GOD.

...errr I mean, welcome aboard, everyone!

Radical thought: what if we started writing now? Gasp! If not, when would you like the deadline to be? How long does it take you to write 8 pages? Or indeed less, that's the maximum limit.

finalact4, travel possibility noted, would September 1st be too tight? Would September 7th give more breathing room?

I wasn't aware that winter was even breathing hard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CdVTCDdEwI

But seriously folks. How about that winter of discontent

Or the winter of disco tent?

I got nothing.

A theme was suggested, failing that there's always disco tents, or come up with something yourself.

Crap, so used to the whole "winter is coming" thing that I've started tuning it out. My bad.
