Hypothetical: Suppose somebody wants to make a movie. Unfortunately he has no money, no equipment, no experience, no script, and maybe not even any talent. But, he has a great idea. He creates a "Screen Writing Competition" in which the winning screenwriter is guaranteed that his script will be produced into a feature film. Sounds good, huh? There is no limit to how many scripts you can submit BUT there's a $100 entry fee per submission. Still sound OK? Now, all he has to do is advertise on Stage32, Craigslist and anywhere else he can think of. Let's assume that from all over the world he gets 1,000 scripts submitted. Cool, now he has $100,000 to make the movie. All he has to do is pick the one that he can make for $100k. Question. Has the winning screenwriter really won ANYTHING? And what about all the losers? Here's another question, this ones rhetorical. How many of you reading this are thinking, "Hey, what a great idea"?
