So, basically this is a script-writing contest, right? I'm a bit confused with the word screenplay XD I might join! Oh, should the other characters be real, or can they just be fictional?

And does the script have to include the whole movie? Or just a few scenes?

EDIT: Also, in what format do we need to use to send to AHS Staff? Would Microsoft Word do, or do we need to zip it?

Either way is okay. You can do anything you want as long as it meets the rules in the first post.

We limited the size to 1000 words because chances are that the voters wouldn't read anything too long. 1000 words is about 3-5 pages in Word. So you probably can only do one or a few scenes, unless it's a very short film.

If you aren't using special formatting you can send it as a regular PM. If you want to use more advanced formatting styes you can send a Word file or a pdf.
