Anyone For Power-Of-Three?

Now then, I've got this here Doomsayer short-script. It's 16 pages long, which means it needs a little trimming if I'm going to enter it into the British Short Screenplay Competition.

I'd love three people-with-writer's-blogs to have a read and give me some feedback. Apart from the usual 'Did you enjoy it?' stuff, I'd especially like to know if it hangs together, tonally. Horror-comedy can be tricky to pull off, so I'd obviously like to get it right. Please don't pull your punches, either - I like the direct approach. Remind me of that, when I'm crying in a pool of Jack Daniels...

First three writers-blog-types to comment (obviously provided they're offering to read the script and not just hurling abuse), will get the pdf, the lucky lucky bastards! And naturally, if they want, I will return the favour on a piece of their work.

God, this could be embarrassing, if no-one sticks their paw up. Then again, it is Friday evening...

i haven't got any experience in analysing comedy horror but i'm willing to give it a go if you want to send it over.

Hooray! The Potster is in the house! I thank you. Coming shortly.

Fella, you can email it my way if you want. Have some tapes to transcribe but I should be able to get notes back to you tomorrow afternoon.

Jason Arnopp said...

Thankyou very much, sir! And wow, that sounds fast. No obligation, mind. Just take a look when you can. :)

I'll make up the third, if no one else has emailed. Not too scary though, okay?

Jason Arnopp said...

Bless you, sir! You are indeed my third. And I swear it won't give you nightmares. :) Will e-mail it after Peep Show!

Oli said...

Rubbish! Missed this post. Any chance of having a read anyway?

Jason Arnopp said...

Oli, sir! I'd be delighted to let you have a read, but could I call on you to be part of my *next* round of Three, with the next draft? That would be a great help. :)

David Bishop said...

Bung me down for the next round, too.

Oli said...

Aye, sounds good. Looking forward to the next draft!

Jason Arnopp said...

Brilliant. Thanks in advance, Oli and David.

And thanks to my first Power Of Three folk, for their brilliant notes. All three sets of notes have and will continue to be useful. This Power Of Three thing rocks...

Ooh I'd be happy to read anything as well. I'm wanting to write a horror feature over the summer for uni.
