EAT MY SCRIPTS! Collected short screenplays 2010-2017
This is a collection of short screenplays written in competition. Reading scripts as a literary medium is an acquired taste, but persevere. Just about every feature film ever written is also available online to download and read.
It seems my collected competition short stories are a bit of a hit, so I thought I would publish my collected short screenplays. This is a lot more complicated, because I have to publish each screenplay page as a visual image so as not to lose the formatting.
New York Midnight (www.nycmidnight.com) is an international online competition that has been running since 2002. They have categories involving short screenplays of varying lengths, anything from 5 pages to 12.
Each competitor is put in a group and given a genre, location or character and an object. They must complete the short screenplay to a particular maximum page count in a set period of time.
Each competition costs around US$35 and, depending on how well you do in the eliminations, you could go four rounds. There are prizes of cash and software.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, visit the website and see the current and past competitions and maybe even subscribe to their newsletter to receive notice of the next competition.
I have been involved since 2010 and it has given me such a body of work that I thought I might share. I have never won, though I have been in the final round. I have decided NOT to include the prompts of genre, character, etc. I'll leave that as a mystery. You can always look on the site, as most of my stories are still up there. My nom de plume in Scarlet Screenwriter, as I am primarily a screenwriter.
FOOTNOTE: If any film maker would like to consider filming one of there, please get in touch!

ROAD TRAIN ROMANCE
Bruce was getting fed up to the back teeth with the antics of the road train he kept dueling with between Katherine and The Alice. He was going to seriously fuck up the driver if he ever caught up with him!
