Oh wow! You researched this pretty well! However, this may be hard for me, because english isn’t my main language. I think my directing is fine. But, still. I don’t stand a chance.
I participated in the contest before this, so I think a lot of the guidelines are fresh in my mind from that!
Going by numbers, most of us won’t win, but hopefully even if we don’t, we’ll still find readers who appreciate our entries. Just give it your best shot.
Sometimes before the deadline, people will share links to their stories before publishing them. You might find someone who will help you proofread for things. When you have your 3 episodes ready, you can always put a share link here and ask if anyone will proofread. Maybe you can offer to check their directing in return.
Thank you! And good luck! I always try my best. I haven’t been to any contest before, because I always forget, so I don’t have time. But this time, I saw it on time, but I’m pretty new to the contests.
Thanks! Good luck to you too!
@Liz I asked my friends what they thought of my idea, but they said it doesn’t fit the requirements? I wanted to do a tennis player who injured her leg and arm, and she’s afraid to start playing sports again… but she does it anyway?
I found someone don’t worry. Thankyou though.
I won a contest having only two choices per episode. They all mattered, though (they were adding/substracting character points that determined the ending). So as long as they matter, you don’t need to add 5-7 unimportant choices to every chapter Not having them at all, though, will hurt your rubric score.
She must want to go there
Second one all the way!
What do you guys think about this story?
Title: Adventurous: Onstage
Plot (because I haven’t figured out a description yet): The MC is really funny, but too shy to go onstage. When one of her friends convinces her to try out improv club, will she be able to handle the spotlight?
This story would be in spotlight style, because I’m not a great coder.
That should fit the requirements? It sounds like a good story, too!
Yeah, I love it
I have a story idea for the contest, though I’m not sure if anyone will be willing to read it.
Title - Adventurous: Expression
Description: After being accepted into the Student Exchange Program (SEP), Amara has high hopes that her life will change for the better. But is it really worth it?
The reader will choose if they want to read it in Spotlight or Cinematic.
Sounds cool and I like the way you get to choose if you want to read in spotlight or in cinematic
I’ve actually decided to go in a different direction because I was finding hard to come up with culturally appropriate outfits, but thanks xx
Can an episode staff member approve my overlay, I need it for episode one of my entry.
Yeah, they need more outfits that represent African culture, as well as other cultures.
Sounds awesome, and I really like how the readers would get to choose Spotlight or Cinamatic!
You’re not going to get it by asking here. One, I’m pretty sure there the people are different who approve Episode stuff to those on forums. Two, there’s an order, so wait for those who submitted stuff for approval before you.
When did you submit? 'Cause it can take anywhere from 3 days to a week (sometimes longer) depending on the workload.
