    No dialogue is a fun exercise, but I don't find it that useful unless you actually produce the script. There are things which you think work in the writing which don't actually work in production, no dialogue would be better suited to a dvxfest.

    I've done it before, it's a good exercise, but maybe it'll wind up as a scene requirement.

    How about we find out what the next DVXFest will be. We're too late for LossFest, but if we could aim for the next quarters, we might see some of our shorts made.

    PORN FEST!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just kidding of course. I think the no dialogue idea is cool, but how about having a theme as well. Maybe the no dialogue concept could replace having a scene requirement.

    Also, I like that so far the script fests haven't really been too limiting in terms of genre. The one that was probably most genre related was SCI-FI FEST, which was great. Pulp / Noir was pretty broad so something along those same lines might be good.

    Some ideas:

    War (could be fictional or historically based)

    Grindhouse (or) B-movie

    Intrigue / Espionage

    Historical (or) Period Piece

    Mythology (we would have to either adapt or incorporate a mythology or elements of one into the script, then in our thread give a quick reference as to what myth we integrated or adapted)

    Non-linear

    Dreamland (or) Nightmares

    Fantasy (which can be much much broader and varied than Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter)

    Surrealism

    These are some that seem like fun, are challenging, yet are not too limiting.

    PictureFest - give us a image and we all have to write a script based on it.

    ScenarioFest - You give the situation and we take it from there.

    PoetryFest - Write a script based on a famous poem (hmm... copyright issues?)

    Here's an idea I thought might be interesting. How about psychological reactance fest, or something like it?

    Definition according to Wiki...

    "Psychological reactance occurs in response to threats to perceived behavioral freedoms [1] [2]. One's freedom to select when and how to conduct one's behavior, and the level one is aware of the relevant freedom -- and is able to determine behaviors necessary to satisfy that freedom -- affects the generation of psychological reactance. It is assumed that if a person's behavioral freedom is threatened or reduced, he or she will become motivationally aroused. The fear of loss of further freedoms can spark this arousal and motivate reestablishing the threatened freedom. Because this motivational state is a result of the perceived reduction of one's freedom of action, it is considered a counterforce, and thus is called "psychological reactance."

    There are four important elements to reactance theory: perceived freedom, threat to freedom, reactance, and restoration of freedom. Freedom is not an abstract consideration, but rather a feeling associated with real behaviors. Free behaviors include actions in addition to emotions and attitudes."

    Anyway, whatever the next fest is, I hope to enter.
