Quote from: TC on Apr 22, 2019, 05:30:13 AMContainment tells a complete story, too. It just needs to be longer in the middle.Ore is the first act of a 3 act story. Setup: introducing setting and characters and their relationships and their situation. Inciting Incident: the xeno attack. 1st act climax: realising they can't go back to normality - they must face the threat. Night Shift starts well but it's a muddle really.Specimen's structure is all about setting up the twist ending.

Quote from: SM on Apr 22, 2019, 09:20:51 AMContainment is the fourth act where the events of the first three are hinted at.
Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Apr 22, 2019, 07:16:29 PMHarvest is more in line with the haunted house in space. I enjoyed it. Alone, I loved, but I know it's going to be quite divisive. It's the bravest of the shorts, I think, but how people are going to react to it...I'm interested to see just how this is going to split.
