HELP US CHOOSE THE WINNER OF THIS N100K

UDUAK OGUAMANAM (writer, Falling) had to join in making this decision

HERE’S WHAT ANTHONY KEHINDE JOSEPH THINKS

So, over a hundred screenplays to read.

All short. 5 to 10 pages, nothing more.

Few characters too. And locations. At least, according to the rules.

Easy abi?

Yeah. Like scrubbing a 30 thousand-liter petrol tanker … with a toothbrush.

They came in several genres. Psychological Thriller, Drama, Mystery, even Sci-Fi. And with just as many issues: using more words than necessary, incomprehensible writing, poor grammar, wrong formatting and going over the ten page limit.

The agenda was to win us over. God knows you tried. Sadly, that didn’t happen in most of them.

Why? Most of the entries didn’t send drafts that reflected the awareness that this is a contest. If I were submitting a script for a contest, I would do a spelling check, cut off unnecessary fluff from the action and description, do a character pass, tighten up my dialogue, ensure the story is clear, and most importantly, read and re-read to ensure that it makes the reader ‘feel something’. It’s a contest. Other guys are gunning for the same prize you are. Prepare to ‘not give them that chance’.

There were so many avoidable errors that a simple re-read would have taken care of.

And then, rules.

I know. As artists, we learn rules to break them. But only as artists. If you break traffic rules, or tax rules, or rules guiding conduct at an airport, you’ll pay. Unpleasantly too. Likewise, if you break contest rules guiding page count, number of characters to be used and locations to set your story in, you get disqualified.

That happened to about 20 scripts. They may have been better than the ones we liked but we’ll never know. Because, rules.

All said, three entries stood out. They weren’t perfect but they were a comforting departure from other submissions.

The writers of these three entries clearly ‘gave some thought’ to their submissions. Why do we watch a movie to the end? We want an answer to the ‘main question’ posed by the story’s premise.

The three top submissions did this. They each created a mystery that sucked us in, made us stick around long enough to see how it played out and rewarded our attention given with a decent resolution. But still, between Niyi Akinmolayan, myself and the friends we consulted with, we couldn’t agree on the best. Niyi preferred the comedy, I the thriller, others were torn between those two or the third.

We need help. And so we turn to you. We are posting the three screenplays we loved on here for you to download, read and vote.

cover page

Your best is our best. It’s down now to your vote. Thank you. Yaaaaay! Hit the comments and tell us the script you like out of the three and why you like it.

All twenty scripts will be shared for everyone to read. This is part of the the competition. Here they are, our top three submissions.

  1. PASTORPRENEUR- THE EXORCISM OF EROMOSELE by Phoenix Ifeoma Ezendu
  2. ROOM 315 first draft @AbosiOgba by Abosi Ogba
  3. The Salon by Okonkwo Johnson Stephen

 

Well done to all who entered, the time you put in and the seriousness to take your craft to the next level. Kindly take advantage of the materials posted on the site to up your game and get yourself to that sweet spot called Screen Credits.

To our three top contenders, congratulations.

To those who didn’t make the cut, remember we told you we’d have a workshop with our top twenty entries. All twenty of you will be contacted later today about when and where we’re meeting for that gig. Its happening this weekend. Saturday and Sunday precisely!

    Room 315 by Abosi Ogba is definitely the best. The writer effectively combines the use of intrigue and imagery in making the work amazing. The touch of suspense and the appeal which the script makes to certain emotions in the reader gives it an upper hand. An intriguing script! i was totally captivated. Definitely deserves first place

    I'll go for "Room 315." It's a subtle story about how people could deal with their shadows (past). I also love the title. I might be biased a bit as I just completed a feature with a similar title, but that's part of it. There's a lot of subtext that keeps one engaged. "Room 315" has the potential of being a strong dark psychological thriller. I do think a few dialogue was overwritten, but that's not a problem at all. It's an easy fix and this is a very specific contest and I'll say Kudos to Abosi Ogba. Next is "Pastorpreneur." Then "The Salon."

    Room 315 was LIT! Depicting the connectedness of life and consequences of our actions could not have been done simpler, more elegantly. Kudos to all in the top 20 and the top 3 especially. The future of Nigerian cinema is bright indeed. #Room315 for the win!
  • Posted: August 10, 2016 18:47

    Every story should possess a conflict but beyond that conflict, there should be a reason or triggers given in minute details. Room315 is a good story as it exposes the dilemmas and helplessness of a man who is paid to listen to peoples problems: a boring repetition of people's predicaments. A good story. Looking at it as a trained scriptwriter, objectively, it lacks commercial appeal, passes a message but in a less entertaining way. Let's not forget, entertainment is the first thing a story should yield. The salon is great as it starts off with kick start action, poses a question but even action without justifiable reason leaves us dissatisfied. The writer could have done better if he brought us closer to the characters by revealing the story behind this story through short lines in their dialogue. Why were they looking for the man? A bit Hollywood but every fight starts with a story. Finally, Pastorpreneur is funny, few spelling errors and punctuations. But it ends on a good note as a comedy. One important thing every script writer should do in a story is make the viewer see the characters not just as part of the story but as living beings. For example: That ppl died in a house that got burnt is good but it doesn't move our emotions. But when we get close enough to know the people, personalities, desires, weaknesses and strengths, then we get emotionally drawn to the story. Pastorpreneur does that in a comic way. The writer should have done a spell check though. Thanks

    I'll definitely go for room 315, sweet psychological thriller that keeps your mind engaged till the very end. This isn't just about comedy, or entertainment, but engaging the mind till the very end. once started, u're just glued to it till the very end. I'd certainly want to see this script elaborated, brushed up and turned inro a movie, the Nigerian cinemas need things like this to flourish. nice job abosi ogba, keep learning and you'll be a force to reckon with. I must also add that the other writers did quiet well too, raw talents out here, keep growing.

    Adeyeye Samuel Adedeji

    I must commend the TRIO for making it thus far. My vote goes to Abosi Ogba for his "ROOM 315". I appreciate the technicality of the script - digging into the past, bringing it to the present and leaving the future to the ardent enthusiasm of the reader. It's original, it's real, it's a winner!
  • Posted: August 10, 2016 19:10

    I prefer " Pastorpreneur"For the fact that writer is trying to use this medium to educate the society over the use of religious means in exploiting the common man.This will make must viewer to build faith in God than Man. Congratulations phoenix Ifeoma and my next is Room 315,Abosi Ogba nice one too.

    3 beautiful scripts, but 'room 315' by Abosi Ogba wins it for me. I'd pay top dollar to see this on screen.

    I love-love-loved all three screenplays. It was very tough to pick until I asked myself which one I'd love more on the silver screen. And the answer was The Salon. The story is electric, just as Room 315 was subtle but powerful, and Pastorpreneur was humorous. Great work, guys. All awesome screenplays. The Salon is my vote though.

    Room 315 is the realest, it's hugely interwoven in the realities of the 21st century, if the script was a phone, it would be an iPhone, I would totally pay to see it in a cinema, good plot development and much sense.

    I'd have to go with The Salon. Room 315 is also quite brilliant in a cerebral way, but requires attention - which isn't really everyone's strong suit. Pastorpreneur... Well, it could have been shorter. Way, way shorter and more to the point, so it would pack more of a punch, especially as it's a comedy. Definitely The Salon. Brilliant. Love it.

    Room 315 is art. No kidding. The script and story are exceptional. You don't see this everyday. You don't even see it every year. Naija twists are usually all over the place but these ones were so well-knit. The writer had it all together. Slap some good money, cast and crew on it and it's sure to win an award or more. Room 315, plix.

    Interesting story lines from each of the top 3, but personally feel 'room 315' by Abosi Ogba stands out because of its ability to not just convey a message, but to do this in a grand style. The Nigerian movie industry so far has not been able to fully delve and explore other methods of telling a story and I feel room 315 hoists that flag not just for the industry but for movie making as a whole. Nice one

    For me, it is between Room 315 and The Salon. Room 315 has excellent dialogue and screenwriting but lack the major emotional purpose. We just get to meet the people and their lives. That's all. No entertainment. The Salon on the other hand is also an excellent screenwriting piece with action. It tends to follow the normal order of movies; a time of order, a time of disorder, and then order again, as it applies to the characters of Joke and Teni. I give the price therefore to The Salon. However sir, i want to request that you name the scripts that were disqualified and if it wont cause any more trouble to you, why they were disqualified. Thanks again, sir.

Still sad that I couldn't get my act together quickly enough to submit my own entry but well, looking at these fantastic entries, I'm quite intimidated sef... Great work! Nollywood can only get better. For me, all d 3 finalists have their strong points. For Room 315, I like the originality in that it is not a typical Nollywood story and also the twists at the end of Nina as Edwina's daughter and Edwina going to Adam's for an abortion and getting rescued by Taiwo who married her etc etc. Nice linking of all the characters. My issue here is its transition to film. It's nice as a story on the page but not sure how much I would like it as a movie. Would need a deft hand to work, as per the director and general production. It's the kind of film that would need explanation for some ppl to get it...or maybe not sha. Still for going in this direction which is definitely not regular Nollywood, kudos to Abosi Ogba. For The Salon, wow! Action packed! Loved the shock of realizing d client doing the facial was d guy they were looking for. And the ending is great too. Really really love this one but generally Im not a fan of Nollywood action movies cos I don't feel they are well done. Again same issue as Room 315, lovely and exciting on the page but will it work as a short film? Would I pay to see it? Well, again it depends on the production. It's a great lovely action piece, reminds me of The Hateful Eight a bit. But its also a bit weak and it could be clearer cos at first I wasn't sure who the 2 guys were - as in are they armed robbers or assassins or what? For Pastorpreneur, Hei, hmm, yes oooo, fantastic is just the word! It's funny, it's relatable, it's topical and it's something I can see ppl enjoying and watching with little wahala. The downsides for me were it's not such an original idea like the other 2 and it somehow resembles a TV or YouTube comedy skit but apart from that it's just WOW!!! Great great hilarious stuff! So I would pick Pastorpreneur cos it's the cleanest with the easiest transition to screen and the one I can see Nigerians best enjoying with little wahala or explanation ... It was really tough to pick oh, especially btw Pastorpreneur and The Salon.. Great great great. I am super impressed!!

    Judging from the comments "Room 315" and "Pastorpreneur" are the clear favourites. The Salon is brilliant , however as someone who is just starting out and looking to make some returns, Pastorpreneur will be the obvious choice. Firstly, it is easily relatable, people would have a good laugh and doesn't take a lot of cerebral work. Movies like this are easily popular, but if you are an accomplished film maker who is not too bothered or concerned with the profit; if it's all about the art for you then "Room 315" is it for you. So you guys have to make your choice based on what your want out of this project. Well done guys.

    It's hard to pick one, but based on priorities, ROOM 315 looks like the best one. It's the kind of script that will be screened on international festivals and win awards if executed well by actors. Pastoprenuer is good comedy, but will most likely get no substantial relevance in film festivals.

    "Room 315" does it for me, from the very start to the end, it was engaging, the play of words and correct English (not abbreviated) stands it out too, the pastopreneur is fun too but its too wide ( goes out of line sometimes) and some words were abbreviated ( as its a contest, attention should be paid to some stuff), the salon was great too but it lacked the engagement, at some point one begins to skip some lines...all in all, the three writers were good but "Room 315" by Abosi was the best for me

    Please Sir Niyi, is there a way you could still film ROOM 315 if it doesn't eventually win the 100k, abeg i'm on my knees Sir. That script is BLOODY. I've read it like 20 times this morning. I saw the script and i said to myself, meehn, guy, you never start. The Salon is a twisted thriller but its a familiar twist that resonates with series like "The Blacklist" and "Scorpion" but ROOM 315 is paranormal in it's structure, It has a semblance to "Shutter Island" and "Inception" but from a milder and sinister perspective.

    So ave read almost all the scripts here. I see why Pastorprenuer is a strong Contender. I tried to visualize the scripts to Screen and it Transitioned well. Easily relatable and funny. I can watch this with my parents and my children too. The writter needs to improve on her Vocabulary and Spellings too.

ROOM 315 was surreal .If it was longer it will make a good movie. I could just picture it as I read. While THE SALON was action packed and direct. It's not easy picking the best. So here is my vote THE SALON, first, second ROOM 315 then PASTORPRENUER. Thank you Oga Niyi for giving us this opportunity to get our voices heard. You are a rare gem.

This work is beautiful in its originality and embodies the ambrosia of modern literary creativity as is worthy of the 21st Century stage. The personal relationship attained during readership of this piece speaks to the mind..... Its filled with intimacy and comprehension. Heres to a great job Abosi Ogba

    its going to be a long note so.... PASTORPRENUR is a good comedy..."it made me laugh"( now! i don't laugh easily). and its cheap. ( don't blame me! my producer is always saying.."cut cost! cut cost!). But i will not go for it cause when it comes to screening a flick, comedy can be very tricky. not everyone is a deep thinker. In fact 85% of US don't think deep and the sanguine are the one making the films. if you will want your comedy film to be well appreciated, then pray that all the critics are sanguine. so if you plan on taking the film to a festival, my advice: don't do this one. BUT IT IS VERY GOOD! I LIKE IT! THE SALON: to start with, I LOVE BLOODY FLICKS! so i am partial to this one. the only thing i can see that is lacking in this script is the TRANSITION of the flash back. and i believe that if a good transition is developed, it will give the story the twist it seems to lack. therefore this is my amebo suggestion: when JOKE goes down and we all think she is dead, cut to a CU of TENI or an high angle tilted down wide shot accommodating TENI,JOKE AND the SHOOTER. then cut back to the CU of TENI. zoom in on her eyes and let her be the lens that takes us on a RE-WINDED journey back to the past where everything began. this will depict TENI remembering and blaming herself for all that has happened. let the come back be a CU of TENI blinking in terror and guilt. if this two emotions can play on her face at once, the effect on the audience will be good. ( let me know if you agree or disagree.....with reasons pls.....its the only way to learn). ROOM315: GBAM! I LOVE IT LIKE KILODE!!! Its the stuff for festivals...if the director knows and understands the texture of the story. it will be my pick any day any time.

    I read the three and they all are lovely. I kicked off with Pastorpreneur: a good comedy which examines the exploitation by religious leaders. The title gives us an insight into the script as a whole. I however did not expect the twist at the end. Phoenix Ifeoma did well there. Room 315 beats the others in terms of uncharted waters and originality. You don't see much of this in Nigerian Cinema. The Salon is also a lovely piece, and i enjoyed every page of the script. All three are good. Room 315 harbours potentials which if properly handled, will be a huge winner. Abosi Ogba is one to look out for. If I however were to go for one which Nigerians would not hesitate to watch, then it's Pastorpreneur. If there was space for another script, then I'd go for Room 315.

    "Room 315" deserves an award... we don't get to see stories like this all the time. the connection, the flow was excellent, I personally want to see this on cinema, the story was straightforward with suspense. the scriptwriter "Abosi Ogba" gave a good delivery and a take home message.

    Comment Room 315 is a master thriller. Abosi writes from a sphere that transcends both his environment and generation. This is not a run-off-the-mill story, no, it is an all-time, spell-binding story with master plot, intrigue and sequence. I am amazed how he strung all characters into a complex yet understandable web of relationship. Hats off Abosi.

    Nice work, the finalists! But "Room 315" wins not because of its outstanding characterisation, superb plot nor Ogba's perfect play with the form (sript), but his having merged content and form, and his use of irony to create a nexus between the characters. Modern literature thrives in the use of Stream of consciousness, Ogba most efficiently deploys that. Great job!

    Mr. Niyi Akinmolayan please take time to read this: The rules of the competition states: 1. 5 main characters (3males,2females) 2. 1 elderly person (post 40yrs) 3. 1 disabled character 4. 1 character that doesn't talk throughout. 5. Make it sexy, edgy, crazy. 1. THE SALON' - 6 main characters (3males, 3females). - No disabled woman can run a salon all by herself without an assistant. Not real, ask Phoenix. - if something like that happened that day, she would have closed earlier. - Not funny. Not sexy. 2. ROOM 315 - Multiple characters - 4 elderly people (post 40yrs) - 3 females, 3 males - 2 disabled people - Not funny. Not Crazy. 3. PASTORPRENEUR - 8 main characters - 3 elderly people (post 40yrs) - 6 males, 2 females - Not sexy nor edgy. - it is still a comedy skit and the removal of 1 character makes it dry. So in this case, this is a competition that laid down rules. It doesn't matter if the story is good or not, the rules of the competition must be respected because some people could have written an epic if there were no restrictions. Some of the top 17 scripts i went through met the requirements but not well structured. Mr. Anthony Joseph could still pick 1 out of them and restructure it. I believe the aim of the competition is to teach people how script is written to how it is filmed. We look up to you Mr. Niyi, Follow your rules. Ciao!

      First, THE SALON: had 5 main Characters not 6 like you said. (where did you see the 6th character?) --- 1. the Client(also the good looking young man), 2. Joke(disabled), 3. Teni, 4. Short bald man(40s), and 5. Tall built man(who didn't talk). So who is the third female here. Please read again. Plus, must a "thriller" be funny and sexy?
    • Posted: August 12, 2016 14:58

      Elijah

      Second ROOM 315: 3 females again? Where are you seeing this additional Female Character from? There are only 2 Female Main characters in Room 315. Note that: The FEMALE who served a drink of Water and the MAN at the Hallway in the end are both EXTRAS (Niyi allowed extras so?). Not funny. Not crazy? I don't get. At least it has a psychological edge to it na.
    • Posted: August 12, 2016 14:59

      Elijah

      Then, PASTORPRENEUR: 6 Characters, not eight (the others are Extras). Rules broken? Yeah! But it is a Comedy and Niyi loved it (against all odds). Since when does a Comedy have to be sexy or edgy? What about slapstick? I think you misunderstood what Niyi meant when he said and I quote, "Make it sexy, edgy, crazy, funny (no visual effects or elaborate special effects o). Give me some good drama baby!".

    "The Salon" is superb. The kind of show you watch and you're so caught in the suspense and terror of every moment that you sit still, forgetting to breathe until that last shot. Stephen captures an eternity of peoples' lives in few haunting words and loud pictures, and calls the reader/watcher to witness, to support, to participate...

    Having gone through the scripts I am not surprised that my script did not make the top twenty because of the rules...about the rules though I think it is flawed considering the number of characters, specifics' of characters...and page count...Kenny am pretty sure you are aware that the title page of a script doesn't count as the first page...you could have said write a 5-9 page script instead of disqualifying a script for being 10pages...ok well having said that I want to say nice work to all the screenwriters' who took part in this epic feet...Room 315 is the winner and best originally written script in the top three...pastorpreneur is a skit and very predictive...the salon is a scene from a Hollywood film reoccurring over again...thanks to niyi for this and Kenny too for the video tutorial you guys rock...now writers don connect.

    Amazing storyline@Pastorpreneur....exactly what the Nigerian populace,Africa and the world at large need to watch.Religion is at the heart of problems bedevilling our society. Phoenix Ifeoma has shown by this work that there still exist raw talent in the industry. I would definitely vote for pastorpreneur,as it's storyline ,presentation et all is almost impeccable,and only because nothing is impeccable. Big congratulations to the writer...you rock???

    Great work guys, the three did it for me but there has to be a winner so Pastorpreneur is a cool comedy scripts, Phoenix got it right. Room 315 is awesome but the ending looks rushed to me and a little confusing but it's a good script. my pick is Pastorpeneur by Phoenix

    Menh! Room 315 got me longing to see the full scripts with the Suspense and deep thoughtful expressions of each scene. The Flashback effect and fade in's of emotion and satisfactory dialogues. Who said the convo was long.. Smh, that's part of physiotherapist true duty... Room 315 dope. Pastopreneur GATS good humour too and Saloon, but I strongly go with Room 315's reality.

    Who wrote room 315 seriously Mr Abosi Ogba that work is something else..... Have to say kudos to the other writers but its visible even to the blinds that ROOM 315 is the best of them all.

    Carlisle

    Room 315 by Abosi Ogba is the deal, this book is off the shelve and I don't know how anyone can come up with something like that, if not for the name one could have mistaken Abosi to be a hollywood writer (or is he?)... The others did a good job too but Room 315 stole my vote.

    I just love the simplicity of language in Pastorpreneur, and also its something we can relate to.. That's what we see most pastors do here in Africa. The script does a good job at mirroring the society.
