    Ah, I guess that would work.

    Sure is. Had so many ideas that only pass two conditions when I start to develop them. If I get scifi-fantasy-horror and family friendly I find I need three characters. Two characters and scifi-horror then I can't get family friendly. Two characters and family friendly and I can't figure out a way to develop the situation. Argh! Unless I get a better idea in the next few days, the one I think I'm going to run with is going to be borderline on at least two fronts...

    I been brainstorming, and I know I have it down. Looking at this thread carefully, I found a few loopholes which are ripe to exploit, at least in a surrealistic sense and still keep it G rated. I'm going to be in this one, much to my surprise. I'll start up the thread as soon as I polish up, think of a logline and submit. My title for it is That Platinum Age...but I might change it to The Platinum Phantom.

    Sounds good, I'm still trying to come up with something.

    I love that title, The Platinum Phantom. It has a great "golden age of radio" vibe. Hmmm.... radio, maybe there's an idea somewhere in there....

    Thanks, Craig. Saw your comment after I finished and called it that (but added a "# 1 because a comic book is involved.) But also, your point is well taken, since the guides of the challenge said additional characters can be talked about or "heard" just not "seen". Now I betcha that just cured everyone's writer's block...

    This was just way too specific. Way too many rules.

    I'll try to get one in. But I think this went a bit too far in stifling the writer.

    Believe me if you're ever tasked to write a script for a producer they'll have approximately one million percent more restrictions on ya. Restrictions force you to be creative - I think it's good to have them.

    So leave Chris alone! :P

    I never said there was anything wrong with restrictions. They do bring out creativity. But there is a limit, as with everything.

    And you get paid for writing for producers. You also get way more pages, which changes everything. Its much easier to meet the requirements when you have 100 pages to do it.
