Group 25

Thriller / Confidential Information / a Window Washer

THROUGH THE PANE

When a window washer witnesses a professional murder, a battle of wits ensues on both sides of the glass.

(Apologies for sash a bad pun - it ended up a sort of comic thriller in the end)

Heat 21 Historical Fiction/Mourning/Traitor


The Gentle Sex


On a female convict ship bound for Australia, a clever spy abandons her humanity to regain her freedom.


I did learn that when you're in a time crunch, you ought to pick a setting that you know something about!

This was my first attempt at writing a screenplay. I knew the only way I'd actually buckle down and try it was by entering a contest. I'm thankful for my beta readers, and for Scrivener! LOL Mostly for my betas though, because they were awesome helpers.

Anyway... amazingly enough, I got neither Crime Caper nor Horror (which seem to be the only two genres NYCM likes to give me). This time, I was assigned Political Satire. The idea for the story hit me immediately. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to put fingers to keyboard until Thursday night! (It was a week of kid stuff... ice skating competition, band concerts, junior high prom, hockey tournament...) Still got it done in time! Yay me! I'll chalk that up to successful adulting ;)  And without further blah blah... here's my title and logline:

10: Political Satire/A fundraising event/A furniture mover

Two Percent 

When it comes to charity, the wealthy elite are ready and willing to give. But who is on the receiving end?

Hey heatmate!

Round 1 | Heat 12 - Fantasy/A coupon/An egomaniac
Prints Charming
Mandy is sick of being thrown to the curb my men. It's time for her to try a new kind of dating.


Go Group 12! 

I've decided to revisit my favourite place in the comps ... Fantasyland ... This will be my fourth story/screenplay set in this bent twisted fairy tale fantasy world ... I love it there!  I know I'll get a lot of flack ... it also has a very heavy dose of political satire, one of my favourite genres ... along with historical fiction ... but fuq'em, I say ...

Fantasy and Political Satire often go hand-in-hand. Same with Fairy Tale and Political Satire. TBH, I dreaded getting PS... and now that I've survived a round with the genre, I kind of love it. Can't wait to read both of yours! They're both intriguing Smile

R1 H20Crime Caper / Junk mail / A restaurant critic

Junkfood
After a night of drinking with his business partner Sam, Ben invites the most respected and feared food critic in town to review their bistro, via an ill-fated email. The next day, realizing his mistake, he has to make sure that email is never read. 


Yeah, so that's a loooooooooong logline.
