Here we go with an attempt at resuscitating the old Screenwriting Challenge, but with a twist. This time around, entrants have to simply write one scene; in this case, the opening scene to a James Bond film.

Everyone's favourite secret agent/sex pest, Mr James Bond, is taking a break from the usual quiet posh spots he normally frequents. He's in New York. Manhattan, to be precise. And he has to recover a briefcase. Just because. What happens when he's there, the contents of the briefcase (if you wish to divulge), all of that is down to you. All that matters is:

  • The scene takes place in Manhattan
  • Bond leaves with a briefcase he didn't arrive with


*Deadline changed, is now Sunday 5th August* Please reply if you're up for doing this, and we'll see about whether to start a new thread for submissions later.

Peace out

Ach sorry, but there's no way I'd be able to make a 15th July deadline at the moment Just too much on.

Anyone fancy extending the deadline in that case?

So glad we extended this deadline, I'm still not finished my first draft. This has become more work than I thought. I guess I thought one scene wouldn't be too hard, but never considered that these types of openings go on longer than most.

Aw crap, I actually forgot all about this. I did fully intend on submitting something too but got caught up in prerp for a short film I shot earlier this week. Gutted.

You were my best friend! Lol. Fair enough. I think deadlines for these kind of things are hard to figure out - too soon and people won't get finished in time, too far away and people forget. Although I don't think would've mattered much anyway.

I started writing something but it just got forgotten about. I'm so sorry. I really want to resurrect this too. Can't believe no one submitted anything either. Shame on them!
