Original Script Sunday (on a Monday) – Jaws inspired OWC entries - posted by Don

Thanks to Darren James Seeley for his idea for the One Week Challenge. The OWC was inspired by a fan’s callout for low budget and brave filmmakers to crank out a series of Jaws fan-films by October 2015 as according to the possible future timeline seen in “Back To The Future II” (boy that almanac sure came in handy!) when ‘Jaws 19′ would be released.

Thirty brave writers took the challenge. Check ‘em out!
