No, we’re not fooling you: April 1 marks the beginning of Script Frenzy, and if you haven’t started thinking about your project, now’s the time to begin. Conceived by the brilliant people behind National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo, as it’s known by us in the biz), Script Frenzy takes the same formula and applies it to screenwriters, playwrights, and other theatrical types. The challenge: produce 100 pages of a screenplay in 30 days. Think you’re up to the task?
We’re chock full of resources designed to make the process less intimidating. Aside from the official Script Frenzy Group, we’re also hosting a contest to help you collect your thoughts. Post a concise, 300-word treatment of your screenplay idea on Figment, and you could win a phone consultation with Scott Myers, screenwriting profesh extraordinaire! Ain’t no better motivation than that.
