Don't Get Any On You
I have a horror script about a nasty green entity that crawls out of a high mountain lake and proceeds to consume everything and everyone in its path.
It was great fun to write and is running about 50/50 in the contests -- either out early on or finishing with some recognition. I think this is because in the middle of the story there is a big fat scrumptious screenwriting joke and the reader must --
1. Have a sense of humor.
2. Not be a format Nazi.
As I said, it's running about 50/50.
But, I digress.
The local lake is currently having an algae bloom, and let me just say, ick.
I thought it would be fun to film some of that for -- well, who knows what I might get up to with film of real live icky green gunk.
Plus, hasn't that GoPro been whispering to me all this long time -- let's go in the water, sweetheart.
Why yes, it has.
So we did.
If later they find my bones extruded by some moveable green beast, you'll have heard it here first.
