    What, I'm sure everyone wants to read the script based on Whip-It. But bring it on. I have a ton of Siouxsie and the Banshees songs dying to be used.

    Jamie, I wasn't trying to bag on girls. I write plenty of Fantasy stuff, I was just saying the audience drawn to Fantasies are more female than male.
    I do really like your idea of a theme, instead of a genre. It would definitely give us some variety when it comes to reading.

    i know you weren't. i wasn't offended in anyway. ;)

    as far as fantasies being more for females or males... i think it depends on the fantasy... if it's more like fairy tale fantasy, then i would agree... probably females... if it's like lord of the rings or harry potter, probably pretty even... i love all of it.

    Maybe if it allowed the entrant to pick their own song - and it was cited with their script entry - that would allow the reviewer to compare the song and script - (not that it should effect what mark its awarded) but just for added insight and interest.

    I think its probably too abstract myself but it is a novel idea.

    Not only that, I can see potential copyright violations, much as if you adapted your story from ANY other medium.

    Caper Fest. Could also be called Heist Fest, but Caper just sounds cooler. Maybe open it up a bit to a broader spectrum, something along the lines of Crime Fest. Anything that deals with criminals or illegal activities.

    I still think Scriptfest I: Pursuit was the best "topic" if you will. It gave the most variety in scripts and some of the most interesting.

    To that end, I always suggest picking something off of this list to base the next Scriptfest on.

    Nice list Krestofre....self sacrifice, madness, ambition, a lot of different themes that revolve around loved ones or kin. Some are fairly broad , but could be the seeds for some interesting scripts.

    I like the idea of Rivalry as a "topic"
