What happens next in this film noir parody? YOU DECIDE!

Win a £20 (~$32) voucher at Fancy Dress Party Ideas - all you have to do is SUBSCRIBE to us at YouTube, then COMMENT, telling us how you want the story to end in NO MORE THAT 100 WORDS.  Did Harry Old save the day?  Could Jimmy Chan be better with a gun in his hands than a pack of cards?  Or would you prefer a sad ending for this world-weary bartender?  It’s up to you!

ONE winner will WIN £20 to spend at Fancy Dress Party Ideas, as well as having their plot being featured in part 2 - “The End”.  ONE runner up will also win a £10 voucher.  What will you buy with your prize?  You could join with these gangsters with a pair of braces, a plastic cigar and a fedora, from our Gangsters & Molls category, or you can spend it on any fancy dress goods you wish, it’s up to you!

Find the script for this video here for help writing your script.

Written, directed and voiced by Jude Ellery, with help from James Lee.

Music: “End of Line” by Quantum Jazz

FULL COMPETITION RULES:

There will be ONE first prize (a £20 voucher to be spent on any purchase at http://fancydresspartyideas.co.uk) and ONE second prize (a £10 voucher to be spent on any purchase at http://fancydresspartyideas.co.uk).  Both prizes must be redeemed within 12 months of being awarded.

The first prize winner’s plot will also be chosen for a follow-up video: “The Ending”.  This will be available to view on Youtube shortly after the winners are announced.

To enter, start your comment with “ENTRY”.  This won’t count towards your 100 words.  Entries over 100 words will not be counted.  Please have parent’s permission if you are under 18.  Entries must comply with YouTube’s Terms of Service and Community Guidelines, or you will be disqualified.

The winners will be chosen once we have received 50 ENTRIES, so please help share the video by watching, liking and sharing/embedding the link!  Any entries after the 50th one will not be counted (we will announce when 50 is reached).

Feel free to upvote other entries that you like, but be aware that the winners will be chosen by the staff at FDPI, without any bias.

Both winners will be announced here and on all of our social media sites - so follow us in the following places to keep up to date with the number of entries and, eventually, the winners:

Poor old Drac was simply fed up of groupies, following him about all day and night like flies buzzing around a decomposing pumpkin.
“That’s it,” he said to himself, “I’m not having it any more. I’m going to set an example.”
And that was that.
Nobody bugs Drac any more.
The end.

Listen up, fancy dress lovers! Now we know you’re all well into dressing up as a pirate captain or sexy pirate wench, but we thought it high time you0 all learnt a little about your ancestors, why you’re dressing up in that tricorne hat and funny curled moustache in the first place. So, where…
