Hypothetical question: Could I try out for a part in the play if my script is the one that wins?
Once you get your script in, and after it wins, then absolutely you can try out for one of the parts you wrote.

The script vote and voice try-out vote will both be anonymous and separate from each other.

Speaking of getting scripts in: the first script entry has arrived. It will be posted on 16 May in a drawing-free “comic” called (what else) “Drunk Duck Radio Play”.

I think I indicated that entries might start posting on 1 May, but now I don't think it's a good idea to have some available before others, and I'm leaning toward posting them all at once.

opinions please?

Go ahead and post them all up at once. That will reduce the salivating threshold that waiting for the next entry will most likely incur.

In the interest of fairness, I'd say post them all at once. If votes are left for the scripts in the form of comments on the pages, the scripts that are posted first are more likely to win just because they have more time to gain votes.

Hadn't considered the spectrum of salivating thresholds!!

It'll also help keep each entry very original - if George Harrison could have been influenced by what had gone before, and he was . . .

Okay, I can't find my best mic and I'm kinda limited for recording time so I suppose I would only really do writing.

I've got a couple scripts for ALU I'm finishing up if you're interested.

Call that jumped up metal rod a knife?
Watch mine go straight through a kevlar table, and if it dunt do the same to a certain gaixan's skull in my immediate vicinity after, I GET A F*****G REFUND! BUKKO, AH?!

Four days left (counting today) to get your radio play script submitted. see first post of thread for details

There have been five who told me they'd do it — so here's a reminder for you. And anyone on the edge, jump and do it!

I could beg, but No One enjoys that (that I know of – and if you do it enjoy it, well, go watch PBS and get a full set of jollies on).

Have you had any scripts?
Do you need more? If so, you'd better extend the deadline.

I could provide a short script from one of the chapters of Pinky TA, to which I will of course retain full copyrights and all that jazz, -but if you need it, I can do it. It will take me time though.

Thanks, Oz! Only do it if you want to because

I've PQ'd the folks who said they were interested in submitting a script. If they still want to do that, then I'll extend the deadline.

If I still don't hear from them by the week's end (and, you know, what is that?! YOU CAN'T GET COOTIES FROM PQs PEOPLE — it's been scientifically proven!!) then we do have one script and we just won't need to vote for a script.

…This is going to sound a little odd, but… is it alright if a chick tries out for one of the guys parts? Because I've got a deepish voice anyway, and I noticed there was a sleazy male character, and I can put on a really sleazy male voice, despite… being.. obviously female. UHHHHH…..
of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

Absolutely. And vice versa. Votes will decide the casting (one vote to DD member via PQ).

Czarina decides if there's a tie.

This will be interesting! I hope we won't have a bunch of default voice winners, too…I was expecting more scripts!

Day 1 Stats, following announcement of script winner
page views of script: 10
number of PQs received: 0


So Ally, I was thinking. As lovely as your southern cadence is, I'm not sure how it will translate into a male noir detective voice. I guess in our 50:50 split I should probably go for Maxwell McDuff. your thoughts?

no activity for a week, with the exception of a few page views of the script

Is anybody still interested in this? Because I don't think it would be a problem for Skool or Ozone to wipe out the thread and we just don't mention this little episode any longer.

Enthusiasim for things that take a long time in the making does down Because people forget…

But there is a scrip, you just need recordings.

Would you like this thread to be “archived” (unstickied and locked), and a new stickied thread put up here in place (linking to the old one) so it starts fresh, only listing the current status of the project and what it needs?

If so, just make the new thread and I'll do the rest.
