Shall I get this started? Can't wait to read everyone's take. First time I've done this and I certainly need a good nap.

LOST AND FOUND
When a shoe disappears down the back of a closet, he finds a new meaning to life.  

Genre: Comedy/Drama (with a touch of romance.)

Hope the judges will be ok with a screenplay about a trainer aka a sneaker aka a shoe.

I reckon you'll be fine. I had the same thought but ended up going down a different path. TBH, I was really thrown by "A Trainer" and wasn't sure what it meant. I made mine an animal trainer. I hope that's acceptable!

I've never gotten this far in one of these competitions, so I have no idea what to expect! Really, I'm just happy to be here haha. Good luck to everyone!

Despite being a 24-hour time limit, I'm not sure I've put this much time into any script I've done for this competition. I was awake for the whole 24 hours and spent almost all of it writing and rewriting.

Reprise
Sixty-five years after the disappearance of his fiancée,
the cynical owner of a piano bar gets the closure he never expected.

It's a ton of genres at once -- romance, drama, mystery, adventure, thriller, fantasy, tragedy, ghost story... But I guess if I had to boil it down to one, I'd say romance.

Not too sure about Genre. We filled in Thriller, Drama on the form but there's at least one scene that everyone agrees is Horror. So...Drillor?

A Break in Routine
A former Air Force instructor has become defined by his habits.
As he loses his routine, he begins to lose himself.
