Take One Screenwriting Competition Films

AE tipofmytongueWatch the winning films from the Take One Screenwriting Competition

If you recall, back in August 2011, Good Times teamed up with local production company *IMPACT and the Santa Cruz Film Festival to host Take One: A Screenwriting Competition. The rules were simple: Submit a short script of any genre (two pages maximum) for a one- to two-minute movie.

The response to the contest was overwhelming, as oodles of Santa Cruzans submitted their original work, which ranged from horror films, to romantic comedies, to thought-provoking dramas.

The winners of the contest—whose scripts were blind-judged by a panel that included staff from GT, *IMPACT and SCFF—had their work published in Good Times on October 6, 2011. Read the winning scripts here.

The winners were Jesus Freak by Timothy Rinker, Smarty Pants by Emily Catalano, and Tip of My Tongue by Zach Dunn.

The three films were shot between October and Feb. 1 by *IMPACT, which held an open casting call for actors.

The final edited films screened on Thursday, May 10 at the Del Mar Theatre, as part of the 11th annual Santa Cruz Film Festival.

But don't fret if you didn't make it to the film festival—*IMPACT has uploaded the three winning films to the web for Good Times readers to view.

Watch the films here.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
