 Thanks to everyone that helped contribute to the screenplay contest!  It turns out that we have a very "interesting" story to tell.  Please don't laugh at our acting skills.  Watch till the end of the movie to see the winner of the Nashville Film Festival Prize Package! 

Here are the lines we chose for the script.  Character, line, then contributor:

All characters standing in line at the gate area, Barbie bumps into Alfred, her bag flies open.

 

Tubbs: "lot of stuff you got here" Barbie smiles and says "you should see the bag I checked, thank goodness it is free" (laashley)

I thought the rules said you could only enter once...meaning ONE tweet? The winner put in more than one tweet....just saying, I thought I was playing by the rules...

Pretty cool but not realistic since Southwest doesn't fly into DFW.

Only one entry was allowed per person, but we did allow multiple tweets. Each name was entered into the drawing just once. Will will clarify if we do it again. Yes, we don't fly to DFW, but the tweet had us doing that. Also, the flight was from Nashville to Dallas, but Barbie is talking about going to Nashville with her currency cconverter. We let continuity slide a bit in the favor of "acting."

Christi - you are a natural at improv. Caleb - you were destined to fill that role. Lindsey - your love of booze + your amazing attempt at singing = I ❤️ U Brian - very few people can successfully pull off an airline geek. Well done. Bravo everyone! 😄

That was painful. I just hope nobody was on the clock- what a waste of time/ money.

Wait a minute. Brian was acting?! 🙂

We are thinking of making a trailer for our movie and it would start like this: "In a world with no screenwriters, the Twitcommers stand between humor and chaos."

I didn't get the DFW line either, but who am I to say, I wasn't a writer.
