    Ok, so Me and my friends make an episode to our TV show like, every week. And we're filming either tomorrow or tuesday, and we still don't have a script for this week. Ya, like, it's not cool [​IMG] And I'm sitting here staring at two differant started scripts, and playing solitaire, when I think "I don't feel like stopping procrastinating right now, so why don't I go ask the amazing scriptwriters on BYC to write a script for me?" Genius, right? [​IMG] So if any of you wanna write a script for an episode, here are the outlines/guidelines. (Or rather, lack there of)

    -It can be any length. Most of these are turning about 15 minutes long, and if your script is really long, we can do a two part.

    -We have 5 actors, but if we must we can get probably two or three more, or double up. (We have 3 girls, and 2 boys)

    -We have limited sets/studios/props. Mostly out door stuff, and a few houses. No towns, but if it has to be set in a town then we can archive it until we get a chance to film in one. But please keep in mind that while writing. [​IMG]

    -I'm not like an amazing CG artist, so try and keep it mostly realistic. [​IMG]

    And, no, we don't actually have a regular storyline. We keep the same characters throughout every episode (same names and actors), but so far they are not connected in any way. So, have fun. [​IMG]

    BTW, this is NOT a contest. If we get allot of awesome scripts, I'll definetly archive them. Probably for next week, since I've not been feeling to inspired lately. [​IMG] Also, I really can't offer you anything. I don't even know if we'll post the episode on YouTube. [​IMG] I can give you a ton of these though. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Thanks so much!!!

    So, as long as it fits in your budget, I can write about anything?

    Quote:Yup. Just as long as it's mostly clean. [​IMG] Probably not too much magic either. [​IMG] Mostly we've been spoofs, but that's def not reqired. [​IMG]

    Quote:It's called Callen. (after a town. currently non-existent. but apparently our characters live in it. [​IMG] ) It's not a major show or anything, basicly it's just to get us acting practice, so our movie we make in the Fall is better. [​IMG]

    All right, so you just want a simple show with day to day problems handled in a funny way?

    Quote:Kinda. The first one we did was set in like midevil (sp) times, and there was this evil sheriff of the garden kingdom. She was like a serious ditz, who locked people in jail for not paying taxes, ect. The great Maximus Minimum would go to the jail, ask the people in jail if they would like to be rescued. Then he'd leave, and come back later for them. Eventually he is able to get the sheriff to reveal the only reason she rules the garden kingdom is that she does the weeding all by herself. Maximus goes outside and does the weeding, then rescues the kingdom.
    The second one we did was basicly a spoof on cop shows. There's a bunch of serial killings, (they happen REALLY randomly) and then the group of amazing 3 detective girls in black sunglasses (which they never remove) make a bunch of really... interesting observations leading them eventually to the killer. ("The way her hair is laying indicates she was was killed by a runby." "Yes. And her fingernails suggest he was rather short." "I think those are very acute observations.")

    So.... ya. You can do it like that if you want, or a serious one if you want. We def need to work on acting both. [​IMG]

    I can write one! I won't be able to finish it in time, though. I'm just wondering, what kind of stuff is there near you? Like forests, parks and stuff.
