Краткое описание конкурса

Hey guys,

We're making an Alien Comedy Sketch.

First off there might be possible multiple winners for this contest.
If you want to keep your entry hidden from other participants you can send it to me directly in a message and just post an entry letting me know. I will not use your material without paying you for it and I also would like to credit you in the story later also if that is okay with you.

I am ultimately needing a short story (screenplay format if able, or best attempt).
Word count 2,000-6,000. Might be 15 minutes of Comedy animated short movie.
However if you just want to present some shorter scenes that you feel like you have good ideas for then that is fine also and maybe we can work out a price just for those as a partial winner when it's over.

It would be an ALIEN movie Parody based on the original movie from 1979 with Sigorney Weaver. You will need a copy of the movie to use it for reference while writing to be able to make jokes about certain scenes, etc. The more we can directly make fun of the better.

We want to keep very much of the same scenes but we will be changing the basic idea/plot of the movie. Instead of the Alien killing the people because he is bad he will actually just be a misunderstood alien that is really just wanting to be friends with the humans but they can not understand his language so he sounds scary to them.

So he will be talking normal like a human for audience to hear. But to the crew he will sound like an alien.

We want to change some of the death scenes to fit our Comedy. They can should be more accidental caused by poor safety conditions on the ship or freak accidents somehow which could be combined with the excitement of trying to get away from the alien. They might trip on water, or fall into an exposed electrical panel, or choke on something, etc. We will want to make fun of as many things as we can.

Needs to include funny names for everything. funny Ship name, mission, crew names and brief descriptions of their personalities and/or quirks. All need to be funny and/or making fun of the ones found in the alien movie. We do not want or need much or any description of the scenery as we will be following most of the same setting,shots,and scenes from the movie and just changing the lines of the characters to adapt this to a comedy script.
You can add some new funny scenes in between other original scenes. We want to spend time writing new content. If you have a funny idea that you want to add or modify from the scenes in the movie i definitely want those and welcome as many funny ideas as possible! Again we wont be changing the overall look of the movie...mostly just lines or adding new scenes. Characters will look roughly the same. We are just changing lines to be funny, as if the script was written to be a comedy. Plus adding anything else that is funny that we can come up with. This will be a condensed version of the movie. This allows us to be able to use only the really funny material. So this would not really be a full script in the normal sense. This would mostly just be an outline for the changes to the original movie that we are making for the scenes we want in our movie.

    Hya, Contest Holder! I made some changes to my existing scene(s) ( #22 ) and added some more scenes, too. Entry #28 . I hope that you like it! It is not complete, but that is because I currently have flu (doh!) so I am not working as well as I normally would. I would like to finish it, if you enjoy the currently completed scenes. It was still great fun to write, though, while I'm ill lol! Constructive feedback very welcome! Thanks! :-)

    Hya, Contest Holder! I have posted what I have done so far and I am hoping for some feedback before I progress. I have posted the Prologue, but I haven't written the two or three other scenes that I have imagined in my mind, nor the finale (throwing the alien out the airlock lol). I would like to finish what I have started, so your feedback would be great, thanks! Entry #22

    So - what are you actually looking for here: sketch/scene idea's or a wholly developed script? If it's the former - sketch/scene idea's - are we looking at the option multiple entry purchases here or are you seriously expecting the whole thing scripted for just $30 before brokerage..?

    Basically what I'm trying to understand is - if any of us are genuinely capable of actually delivering a script that gives you everything you're asking for and is actually funny in the bargain - can you run by me please why it is we are selling that work to you for literally next-to-bugger-all - I don't understand why anyone capable of delivering is going to do that.

    Not at this price. #increaseprize

      Thank you, Ana - you're a star. And, of course - perfectly correct. I SHOULD be President! Now I come to think about it, I'm actually astonished am not already. From the way I go about things, I've always assumed I already was.... ; ) x

    How long you need the script? (number of pages/words).

      As the brief says, Rodrigo - first line - "word count maybe 2,000- 6,000 estimated. Might be 10-15 minutes" - for the full length script you're looking at around a page per minute screen-time, so that's between 10-15 pages all in. Useful?
