    As for the amount of time for writing, there's no reason why you can't cast and preproduce at the same time as you write/rewrite.

    I recommend submitting the script you'll produce. I don't think it will spoil the viewing process later. Realistically not everyone reads all the scripts, and you'll have a big leg up on those producing scripts without feedback because you'll have the advantage of workshop criticism.
    I agree, sounds great! This will be my first script submission so I hope to get some good feedback. bad or good. Im open

    Couldn't agree more.
    I've suggested that same strategy to members in the short film festivals here as well.

    Wow. I'm semi-new here, and these fests sound amazing. Thanks for organizing these guys! "Monster" films definitely aren't my genre of choice, but I'll see what I can get together. I'll see you all at the finish line!

    I'm new and have a few questions:
    Is it 6 pages Plus title page or 6 pages Including title page?
    Is it ok to post rough drafts of script for feedback before submission and if so where may one do that?

    Thank you.

    I'm not a mod, but I've participated in 3 of the 4 scriptfests.

    6 pages of script, plus a title page. So if you have 7 pages but one is your title page you're all good.

    Nope. That could get you disqualified.

    The whole point of the scriptfests is that you submit your script, make a thread for your script, and then in your thread others can give you feedback. You don't really win any prizes, because it is more about learning and improving your own work by discussing it with others, in addition to being exposed to their work as well. I like to approach it as a sort of workshop more so than a competition.

    You'll get tons of feedback too, as long as you make a thread and participate by reading, voting, and giving feedback to the other participants' screenplays.

    Cool, thanks. The thing I cranked out this morning came in at 6 plus title page so I should be good.

    Why does it have to be 6 pages? The minute-per-page rule doesn't really work with shorts...

    I don't know, but them's the rules. I would guess that they don't want a bunch of 15+ page scripts, which would make it difficult for everyone to read and vote on them all in a week.

    I guess... it just seems weird that I would be able to use the screenplay for my video entry, but not for a script entry....
