Default Southern Land's First Great Movie Script Writing Contest

I'd like to announce the inaugural Southern_Land screenwriting contest.

1. it starts now. Right now, start writing!
2. it ends midnight on the last day of this month.
3. voting commences 3rd of April and last for five days
4. the votes are tabulated, the winner is announced and the prize will be sent...

wait? what? Prize? Yup!

I've anted up and have organised a prize for the winner.

5. while the contest starts now (start writing) I won't reveal the prize until 5 days before the end of the contest. This will/might give the stalwart contesters an advantage. We all know they will start writing at the drop of a hat. The rest of you? If you don't start writing now, then want in on the prize when its revealed, well at that stage, you have five days to make good on your previous slackness.
6. So what are we writing about? I am a crazed, rich producer who will make your life miserable because did i mention I'm rich. I figure that with your workman-like writing skills and my sublime genius we can replicate Disney's success with the pirate ride movie and make billions. I have gained rights to a hugely well known song, use that as the core of your script...
7. select a song from the following list and use the core elements to build your story

Yeah somehow 100 didn't seem enough and 500 put me over the character limit for the thread. So 400 is the new black.

Not sure what list this came from (and maybe I hurried a little in choosing it) but some of the songs I'd considered when thinking about this contest are absent.

Good, good. Makes it more of a challenge for you, as you write your own screenplay.

My progress is less than meteoric, except where meteors plummet to a fiery chaos. Started and burnt two ideas.
