Who's in for another year? Since I'm
running it this year I get to make up the rules! No actually I just pasted last
year’s announcements in below and made necessary changes for it to make sense
for this year.


Announcing the commencement of the fourth Annual DD Voice Contest, better known
as the 2013 Drunk
Duck Radio Play
!

There are several great ways to participate – and we begin with Phase One -–
Script Entries and
Judge Sign Ups! Yay!



The Czar declares: Impartiality!
So: The Script. There are only three Musts for the script:
1. must be rated “E”.


2. must include no fewer than ten speaking roles

3. must be emailed to me at carlphillipkinyon@gmail.com no later than Sat., May 11 or as long as needed as a
word doc attachment.

The play should be 15 to 20 minutes long (if the following recommended format
is used, one page of dialog equals about one minute of play).

Recommended format (addressing
the goal of creating pages that are easy for someone to read from aloud):

* Font: 14.5 Courier New
* A space and a half or double space for copy
* One inch border around the page
* Format bold on words if you want emphasis in the read
* Avoid italics due to legibility
Remember these basic radio journalism style rules:
* Keep it simple
* Write in short, concise sentences
* One idea per sentence
* Two to three sentences per paragraph
Here's a sample
script
read it here and learn all about
one Maxwell McDuff.

Title suggestions for a Maxwell sequel come from bravo1102 -
- “Maxwell McDuff and The Case of The Waterfowl Empress”

and from Ally_Haert:
- “Maxwell McDuff in A Murder Most Fowl”
- “Maxwell McDuff in The Early Bird Gets The Gun”


Not a big fan of Max, but still need
ideas? Here are some story suggestions:

- What’s a rich genius orphan to do? Not let the authorities know that the parents
are gone for starters. The staff will play along; they like being employed -
because, you know, work in Transylvania is hard to come by

- Where holograms and portals convene: -— Mesa Verde is not abandoned

- Super Hero(es) – (you’d be super, too, if you had two willing clones)


That's a lot of info.


 


As for judge sign ups just make a post in this forum topic saying that
you’d like to be a judge.



So stop wasting time re-reading it already and just start writing.
Send your word doc script (as an attachment) to me at carlphillipkinyon@gmail.com by 11 May or as long as needed.

You'll be glad you did! Well, I will be. There’ll be a panel of judges
twiddling their thumbs . . .

Sorry about taking out bravo1102's suggestion “Maxwell McDuff and the Mystery of the Myan Calender.” That just would have seemed a bit… how to put this… dated.

Calling all actors! Anyone who wants to sign up should do so soon! Email me via the email adress provided in the first post. (A.K.A carlphillipkinyon@gmail.com.) I will then send you the script. No deadlines since I imagine I won't be getting that many submissions but as soon as possible would be good.

Has this project been resurrected yet and, if so, where does it stand? I have a great love of audio theater and would love to be of assistance.
