Script Frenzy is basically NaNoWriMo for script writers. You have one month (April) to write a 100-page screenplay. You can write with a partner or by yourself, and you can write about whatever you like.
I tried Script Frenzy in 2011 (on a whim, because I happened to have a cool idea at the end of March) and finished. I ended up with the script for probably the worst horror movie ever written. I’m playing with the idea of turning it into a novel, since screenplays don’t seem to be my thing.
Even so, I still got sad when I heard the news that the Office of Letters and Light was no longer going to host Script Frenzy, due to a lack of funds and falling participant numbers. Basically, they were losing more than they were putting into it.
It’s a loss to the creative community, although there’s no stopping anyone from writing a 100-page screenplay in a month if they really wanted to. And who knows, maybe in the future Script Frenzy will return if enough aspiring screenwriters connect and bring it back. As for me, I don’t believe I was ever meant to be a screenwriter, but even so… I shall miss Script Frenzy.
