It doesn’t feel like I was all that productive this weekend, but I know that’s not true. I even have proof.
First off, Matt & I recorded a new podcast, in which we discuss the Oscars and our most anticipated films of 2011. We also accidentally found ourselves arguing about the best film of 2009. But these things tend to happen when we talk movies. Do check it out if that interests you, & if you do, let us know what you think.
The other thing that took up a fair chunk of my weekend was Creative Screenwriting’s Cyberspace Open, which entails receiving a prompt on Friday evening and writing a 3- to 5-page scene by Monday morning. It’s a fun and inexpensive little contest that forces some creative calisthenics, plus they provide a little feedback on your scene, which is always a nice contest benefit.
(Also, if you missed it last week, I put up a little video of random-stranger interviews regarding Valentine’s Day.)
I haven’t posted my prior CS Open entries, but the ensuing 30-degrees-in-8-hours temperature drop is making me feel a little nutty, so why not? Hopefully you’ll enjoy, but feel free to let me know what you think, good or bad.
