THE SPY WHO BUTTERED ME


A government spy must infiltrate a criminal organisation operating in an old coal mine in order to gather           
information on its activities.



Haha! Love this title, fellow Group mate! LOL Can't wait to read it.

Hiya - it will be fun to read yours too! Butter and a hot coal mine don’t really go well together. Struggled a bit there...


Yes, I absolutely agree. Find it a challenging one... Spy genre in general I find very tough, especially to put into so few pages (I got Spy for this year's Screenwriting Challenge Round 1 as well... ConfusedLOL).
Good luck!

MIKE AND LUCIFER
A young man can't find the courage to talk to a woman he has
loved all his life, choosing to only 'admire' her from afar.

I'm hoping someone else in my group posts so I can see what the hell others have done! 

I also have a beauty treatment with serious consequences in mine!
(Not in your group, so it’s really just a coincidence.). 

Oooh.. which group are you in? 

I'm next door in Group 14.

I'm coming to realise my loglines are so boring! 



This just screams comedy-drama to me.  Policeperson kills self because the doughnuts were replaced by brownies...wish I'd thought of that sooner.

I dunno about that.  Some like to give a lot away in the logline, others don't.  I know what I'm getting from this, so for me it's good.  :)

Hey it looks like we had the same prompt! I'm really curious to see how others interpreted the prompt. 

Which prompt was yours? It helps to click "quote post" so we can see which one you are referring to. Were you in Group 22 also (crime caper, cemetery, a crown)? I'm super curious about what others did, so I hope you will post yours! My synopsis is posted above. Hope you will post your story when we can! :) And good luck!

-Alex


Thank you for tip Alex! I'm sorry I've never used this forum before so I'm still getting used to things. I wasn't I was in Group 9 (ghost story, a stadium, a therapy dog). I'm a little nervous to share but maybe It's time I ditch that fear haha. Is there a thread where people are sharing their work? Thank you again and good luck to you too! 

- Hasun

We can't share just yet. You'll get an email probably tomorrow. Then you'll see a Short Screenplay 2019 forum appear in the Screenwriters Lounge and there will be lots of great instructions from Steph. :) And don't be nervous - last year was my first, and it's great, very supportive and you learn lots.
