Public vs. Private Open Screenplays

Public Open Screenplays

The epitome of collaboration, Public Open Screenplays are open to ideas from the widest range of people who use the site, and will receive the greatest number of contributions for every aspect of the screenplay.

Public Open Screenplays are governed by the Open Screenplay Contribution Rules, which means they are the most democratic and fair. Essentially, contributions with the highest number of votes make it in and become “Voted Contributions.”

Also, Public Open Screenplays will appear in search results as they can be followed and contributed to by anyone.

Features of a Public Open Screenplay:

❖  Everyone can follow

Everyone on the Open Screenplay platform with an account has the ability to follow the screenplay, view contributions, and vote on them.

❖  Everyone can contribute

Everyone on the Open Screenplay platform with an account has the ability to submit contributions that will be voted on during the different development phases of the screenplay.

❖  Cannot be made private later

Once an Open Screenplay is made public, whether it starts as a Public Open Screenplay or a Private Open Screenplay, it will remain public for the rest of its development process.

❖  Adheres to Open Screenplay Contributions Rules

Contributions with the highest number of votes make it in and become Voted Contributions.  This occurs in each phase of the development process.
