    Thanks Captain Pierce. I was wondering because the rules seem to define it as strictly detective / noir.

    I recently decided to take a look at "pulp" on wikipedia. I see that pulp really covered a lot of genres. This seems to be a very loose theme for a fest, meaning that there might be a wide variety of different types of material submitted. Then again, maybe most that enter will stick with a noir-ish world and atmosphere.

    Currently have two in the pipeline. First draft on each done. I am doing some tweaking to see which one plays out the best (and yes I have just re read all the feedback on fest2 - I am still trying to leave people with a sense of taking something away from it, but have those gaps filled).

    Geez Noel, take your sweet time why don't ya?

    So far I have three ideas. I like all of them but I know which one I will focus on. If there's time to write more than one then maybe I'll see what I can do with the other two. I've got the day freed up tomorrow. I'm gonna go to the library and just write like a madman.

    One thing that I was wondering about though:

    My script is going to be using a lot of made up slang. Can I make a slang glossary in my script's thread so that those that want to reference it can? (Not that they would need to, since I intend to write the script so that you do not have to have access to the glossary to understand or infer the meanings of the made up slang. But hey, why not include it if you can?)

    Heh, I went to that exact same Wikipedia article, and it sent me in a new direction from what I thought I was going to do.

    Pulp does span different genres, but one thing you can see in a lot of pulp is a cynicism and fatalistic worldview in the material. Pulp doesn't generally deal with the goodness in people, it presents the morality of characters, but often it's swallowed up by the darker side. Just something to consider.

    Isaac, basically what you're saying is that pulp goes hand in hand with noir, or shares a lot of the same elements that make up noir. Not necessarily the typical tools of noir like a private detective and a femme fatale, but the darker underworld / nightlife of noir. So for example, something like Blade Runner or Neuromancer could qualify as pulp / noir but with the sci-fi elements also being a major ingredient of the entire piece.

    I understand what the definition of pulp is, but just wanted to examine the boundaries of the definition as it pertains to this fest.

    I'm going to the darkside as well, but just in a strange way that will hopefully be something interesting and fresh. Okay, time to get back to writing my script.

    Does a flashback count as a dream sequence?
