CS OPEN 2008!

Egads! It's that time again! Time for the CI team (well, a handful of us anyway) to roll on over to the LA Convention Center and once again see what you guys can do with 90 minutes and a pencil. For the 7th year straight Coverage Ink will be presenting and judging the CS Open live writing tournament. If you're attending the Expo, do consider trying your hand at this one-of-a-kind competition. You'll be amazed at how our little tournament gets the create juices going. With thousands of dollars in cash and prizes and feedback on every scene, the CS Open is an absurdly fun little exercise.

In a nutshell: We give you 90 minutes and a scene prompt. You then write your best interpretation of that scene. We then score it, and you can pick up your scene later to see how you did. Top 10% advance to round two and top 10 to round 3. Winners are voted on by the audience at the closing ceremonies, after the top 3 scenes are acted out for the audience by actors! This is always a hoot, especially when you consider those scenes were written and performed the same day!

So pick up a ticket to the Open and stop by and see us at room 409 AB! And feel free to introduce yourself, ask questions or advice, etc. As always, CI is here to help.
