Romantic Comedy
Recycling
Senior Citizen

Mine is aptly titled "LOW HANGING FRUIT"

It's Phil's last day of existence and last chance to teach a young girl about love


Confession: I wrote mine, beginning to end, in 2 hours friday night/Saturday morning. Spent an hour editing, then turned it in. Not bragging. Romantic Comedy isn't my forte and it took me 11 days to settle on a story I was sure wasn't like any other's in my heat. Will it pay off? We shall see...

Hello everyone!

Well, I have discovered that I hate writing about Horses and racing and most of all jockeys.

I dragged and pulled and extracted every last word.

It is definitely a drama, as my life has been for the last 24 hours. Not least of all because NYC. don't accept final draft doc's and for some reason they also rejected my word doc, which had to be copied, pasted and re-tabbed in word when it blew out of final draft, (inhales deeply). Then eventually with 13 (obviously) minutes to go my dramatic script loaded as a pdf. Now just filled with trepidation to see if the whole process was worth it and if the drama lives up to the script!

Anyway, rant over; I got: group 31 - Drama / A Horse Jockey / learning to read and write

                                'The Final Hurdle'

    Fred Bannon 's horrific fall leaves him isolated in a silent world. A silence chosen by another boy to forget the horrors of war.'


First of all, AWESOME logline! Can't wait for a chance to read it. (If you were to share it with us, of course.)

But I feel your pain!

I have a reflexive dislike of PDF files because when they are shared in Google Drive they have this wonky interface that puts black bars at the top and bottom with NOT HELPFUL RIGHT NOW navigation controls, and try as I might I can't dismiss them. I actually downloaded an app that converts them to a readable document format.

I dinked around with a few programs, all which can import/export Final Draft content, and ended up with a mix of Fade In and Writer Duet. (Fade In for writing, and Writer Duet for final PDF because my copy of Fade In is still the demo version.) When I purchase Fade In, I think I'll use just that.

Best of luck with the judges! And remember, life is what happens when you're still planning for life.


Thanks Stephen,

I'll definitely check these out.

Thrilled you like the logline!

Looking forward to reading yours too!

Hey, fellow heat 44-er
Look forward to reading yours. How did you find the prompts? I hope you are going to put this up on the forum? cheers Paulene 


Really interested to see how you guys handled this, it was a bit of an offbeat prompt and took some work for me to come up with something. My first draft was 18 pages too, and it was absolute torture trying to cut it down to size. :(

Mine was:

IN A JAR
A gifted high schooler is encouraged to pursue his research on preserving dead tissue by his guidance counselor as his relationship with his parents grows distant.
