Original Script Sunday! (Has come on a Wednesday of August 15th) - post author Don

It’s summer and SimplyScripts is on a summer schedule which means at any time we can get pulled away to dress up as or favorite anime character, play video games or work on community service projects.

SimplyScripts was left in the care of P.H. Cook and there was a One Week Challenge. The challenge was to write a short script on the theme of Summer Heat (if you live in the northern hemisphere) or Cold weather (if you live in the southern hemisphere). The challenge: No dialogue.

There were 28 entries by 25 writers. We welcomed two newcomers to the challenge (trial by fire) and hope they continue to contribute.

The writer’s choice script was: A Beautiful Day by Alex (Anon) – A crash victim tries to escape her car before it cooks her alive. 2.5 pages. (Short, Action) pdf format

Please check out the rest of the entries on the Original Unproduced Scripts page. If you are looking for a script to film, while these are rough – first drafts – reach out now to the writers if you have an interest in filming. OWC scripts can go fast.

Slacker’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse – Short Script Review (Available for Production!) - post author Guest Reviewer

Slacker’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse by James Barron

Life after the zombie apocalypse is harsh and uncompromising. But for two stoners holed up in an apartment with a lifetime supply of weed, it’s more like an inconvenience.

Remember when Seth Rogen and Co. faced the biblical apocalypse in This Is the End? A few of them stumbled successfully through doomsday, but how would they fare if they were faced with a zombie apocalypse instead? This is the very question asked by James Barron’s The Slacker’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse.

The answer? Not too well. Not at all.

Faced with Z Day and barricaded in their dorm, three friends (Mark, Steve and Liam) find themselves in a terrible pickle when their food runs out, leaving them starving and trapped – or worse. They intensely debate what to do: Steve and Liam vote to hold out one more day… aided by hits from their favorite bong. But Mark, the sensible non-stoner, insists they need to send someone outside to gather supplies and do recon. But who should be the lucky one?

Borrowing a cue from This Is the End, the trio draw toothpicks: he who pulleth the shortest stick is doomed to venture into the great unknown. Unfortunately for Mark, he’s inevitably chosen to leave for the munchie run – through a terrifying, zombified world.

What happens next? Well, without spoiling the finish, things go about as well as can be expected. And definitely not as planned.

A fun, chuckle-a-minute script, Slacker’s Guide has lots of things: stoner humor, Millennial appeal – and zombie action (no kidding). Scoop this up now… or wait until you take another hit from your bong for creative inspiration.

Fair warning though: act fast. This script might be picked up faster than a bag of Doritos in a stoner’s dorm.

Budget: Mid to high. A few locations (dorm room, hallway, stairway, food store). Lots of zombies, three good buddies and some props. Although, if you’re packing weed, you’ve got one of the major props covered already.
