So I've been getting into the writing pretty serious lately, and I've just uploaded some of my stuff in the hope of getting some feedback. I've just completed a spec script for The Office
which I've entered into the Austin Film Festival, and hopefully some other competitions over the next few months.

Also, I entered the New York Midnight Movie Madness Screenwriting Competition for the first time this year. They give you a genre and a subject (in my case Romantic Comedy and Flight) and you have a week to write a short screenplay up to 15 pages. I placed first in my heat, and on to the final which is this Saturday - similar set up, but only 24 hours to write a screenplay. Wish me luck!!
My first round screenplay, which I ended up basing around a flying pig, can be found here: http://homepage.mac.com/davidtharwood/FileSharing2.html
Finally, if anyone's interested, I've also posted my spec script for SpongeBob SquarePants which was my submission for the Nickelodeon fellowship. Admittedly this was a bit rushed, so I've not got high hopes, but if they liked it at all I won't here anything until September at the earliest anyways.
That one is here: http://homepage.mac.com/davidtharwood/FileSharing3.html
I'm really proud of my attempt at The Office, and the flying pig thing - and really looking forward to the final next weekend. I'll post my final entry once that's done too of course. I'm really enjoying getting into the writing hard core now, reading as many screenplays as I can get my hands on, and become addicted to the Creative Screenwriting podcast. I'm going to attempt to make a good crack on a feature comedy idea I have next, and then probably a new TV spec and try to get an agent once the fall TV shows start.
Please, if anyone is interested in reading what work I've posted so far, I would really like to get some feedback. Much appreciated. And, of course, I hope you like my work.
