'Tag' #1 on Zoetrope.com for May

by Suw on July 11, 2004

A while back I finished of the second draft of my first screenplay, Tag and posted it up on Zoetrope.com, a workshopping website for writers and film makers. The idea is that other writers can review your script and, hopefully, help you improve it. Each reviewer scores the script out of ten on six criteria, and the top three scripts make it on to the front page of the screenwriting section and, possibly, get read by the Francis Ford Coppola's minions at American Zoetrope.
For Tag I managed to score:
Overall: 7.71
Character: 6.71
Plot: 7.43
Quality of Writing: 7.57
Originality: 7.86
Cinematic Quality: 8.43
This was despite a really harsh torpedo review, which undoubtedly marked me down. I wonder how my scores would have looked without this dickhead fanning his own ego by trying to kill off other people's – I know for a fact that I got straight 10s from one reviewer. Anyway, that's by the by. The scores were high enough that I am ranked best script for May.

Yay! All I have to do now is to get the rewrite done, and find a production company willing to give me some real money for it.

Congratulations on hitting number one. I feel like I should offer a dose of 'yes, but don't get too carried away…', but what the heck, go bask in the glory.

Carried away? Is it possible to get carried away by a Zoetrope ranking?

How exciting!

Congrats, Suw. The competition in the screenplay wing can be very stiff, there, too.
