Okay, I'll go...

Group 36: Action/Adventure / An ultimatum / A freediver


Game Face
Trapped in an immersive virtual reality game, a timid Croatian man must complete a dangerous mission in order to escape.


First-time NYC Midnight competitor here:
Writing in the Action/Adventure genre really was an adventure -- but now, at the end of the week, I'm pleased to say that I'm very happy with how it all came out. Also, I'm looking forward to reading everyone's screenplays in the near future!

What  a wild ride. That was my first screenplay :D. Am I crazy to do it undertime pressure? Maybe. Was it crazy to interpret valet creatively? Double maybe.

But I like to live dangerously :P

Group 21: horror, a contract, a valet

Locked-In

Callum is surprised that his new research assistant job involves attending to the personal care of a paralyzed man. A chilling telepathic message makes a request he cannot grant while danger lurks close behind.

So happy to be doing this again this year. Last year was my first year and I was totally thrown by having to do mystery and then horror, both not my typical genres. But this year I embraced the whole Crime Caper thing with a story that is SO not my usual thing that it was actually quite freeing. Excited to read everyone's scripts!

Group 51: crime caper/homework/a hockey player.

SCORE

Four college roommates seek revenge on a fraternity after they learn of a misogynistic bet about which frat brother can sleep with the most women on the air hockey table.

Group 28/Crime Caper/ A Banker/ A Celebration

Good Deeds

Kenny turns to his friends for help in finally outflanking his smart, successful older twin brother, but a family party makes it hard to acquire a Monopoly on luck. Can Kenny bank on his friends to help him gain the prize?


Not my best logline. This was a very uneven ride. After a day or two of complete freeze I  had an idea and had a great first couple of pages... then it was a slow grind. I had a really hard time fleshing out the middle. I actually skipped ahead and wrote the final scenes. Then I had to sort of match them up.

group 24 / historical fiction / probation / a beer drinker

This World and the Next

I was initially quite disappointed in my genre but I think it turned out alright!
