    I think a little more voting time would help. We'll stretch it out next time so that every piece gets as much feedback as possible.

    And don't take it too personally. I know it's hard as a writer not to, the best thing to do is to keep writing. Some pieces you write will be technically strong but won't connect for whatever reason. It helps to take what was strong with the piece, do that the next time, take what was weak with the piece, and focus extra strong on those issues.

    So that makes three of us in the same boat, then.

    I am not trying to be cocky, I felt that the script had several weak spots. My opinion was that once CHLOE was introduced the whole thing went to hell. But, as I have said before, this was because sci-fi is NOT my genre. Looking forward to the next fest. I'm not going to give up just because I placed in the double digits (and then some )

    So i guess this is a free will thing. But I am happy to say I finished 20 out of 40. I think I wrote a very solid piece technically as far as writing for screen goes and I think I wrote something thats visually easy to perceive and shoot - I think that also comes from a working knowledge of what shots will work etc. I have some loose ends, that became evident and considering those I am pretty pleased with the outcome. I mean comments I got back, support what I have said above.

    Well I'll say 'Alien Abduction' finished 19th out of 40. Can't quite use the word 'happy' to describe that, though. I do appreciate the positive comments as well as the constructive criticisms. Some of it was dead on target. Thanks.

    Ninth place here.

    Considering that it was a comedy bit... I'm quite happy with the results. The top 3 turned out to be quite what I expected. Great entries.

    Well done, everyone!

    31st here. Which doesn't bother me as a result, but just about the only feedback I received in the thread was positive, so obviously it didn't work for some people. I'd really apprecaite knowing why. If anyone out there really hated Autonomous, please hop in the thread and tell me why. You won't hurt my feelings, and you'll help me improve my craft.

    I doubt people hated it. I think some people probably didn't get around to reading and reviewing ALL the scripts, only some of them. So some scripts got more votes as a result. The more votes, the better chances for a higher score. That's what I'm telling myself, anyway.

    Unfortunately, you can never tell that way. I've seen great short films that get nothing but rave reviews and still they do not place. Yet... other films that get a lot of criticism sometimes place much higher.

    You never can tell.

    I posted what I thought of it.

    Cheers,

    Mike
