An unofficial #scriptchat Exquisite Corpse – Straight From the Fridge

Back in April I posted to this very website asking people if they’d be interested in partaking in the first ever unofficial #scriptchat exquisite corpse. Many people reached out, each taking a crack at 5 pages in a script before passing it off to the next participant. Some people fell off along the way. Some seven day deadlines were extended for multiple reasons. And a couple alternates were brought in as backup since we ran out of writers at the end.

I want to thank everyone who had a hand in this. The corpse is being delivered to you all as-is (minus one writer who didn’t know how to properly format a script – that part I cleaned up a bit). This hasn’t been rewritten, redeveloped. The first writer was given a title and delivered the first five pages. From there, each writer added on, hopefully building off of what was previously given to them.

I haven’t read the conclusion of Straight from the Fridgeyet. I only know where the story was when I submitted my last five pages. I know where I wanted it to go, but like most, I’m sure it went elsewhere.

So here she is:

Enjoy it for what it is. I’m thinking about doing a Corpse short in early 2012 and then doing a feature length around the second half of the year. It’s a great tool to practice delivering pages on a deadline… even if you don’t like what you’re writing. The main thing is to get the words on the page.

In the end, I’d love to hear any comments you may have about it. Where did it go off the rails? What is the meaning of it all? What storylines were dropped that you wanted to see explored further.
