Rules

The screenplay must be between 1-10 pages, not including the cover page.

You may submit as many entries based on as many prompts as you'd like.

You may use more than one prompt if you like.

The screenplay must be set in the present day.

The screenplay must be live action, no animation.

The rest is up to you and your imagination.

  • The sun doesn’t set.
  • A character plays darts alone at a bar.
