Slowly publishing the Faeries feature horror script a section at a time online.
FAERIES – the full release
Faeries was an experiment in process, a personal challenge to complete a feature script from concept to completion in 12 weeks, and prove that we deserved the opportunity to deliver on a writing assignment. Did we make it? Read the writing blog – each day of the writing process was meticulously recorded. (Remember that the blog posts sort in reverse – so start at the bottom and work your way through ‘em)
We finished the play, submitted it to 2009 Shriekfest, and were chosen as Finalists.
We’ve since had a half-dozen production companies request it… but we’ve also got a number of writer friends who wanted a peek. So we decided to release it a section at a time right here.
I was tempted to do another polish on it… there are a few minor things we know we want to shine up. But we thought it would be good to get more feedback before we do, to make sure we’re making the right kinds of tweaks.
Now, the first 16 pages have always been online for review, so this first installment will be the first 29 pages. A new section will follow every two days till you’ve had a chance to see the whole thing.
And when the new section goes up, the old one comes down… but we’ll be tweeting the new postings, so keep in touch … and please, leave your comments if you have ‘em.
*edit* We’ve decided to leave each of the parts up even when the new ones go up… so’s folks’ll be able to read through the whole thing if they like without breaking the rhythm. So if you like serials, take ‘em as they come. If you prefer the 90 minute sit-down, wait a few more days.
*edit again* We’ve removed the script now. Thanks to all for the great feedback… we’ll be working on the script and plan to submit to a few more contest soon.
