laugh the better chance your story will be picked.

http://www.hotelguignol.com/

Hotel Guignol is an upcoming web-series, featuring horrible,
mysterious and absurd occurrences that took place within
the rooms of this hotel over the course of it’s near-100
year history. If you’re looking for a peaceful night,
you’ve come to the wrong place. While production on the
series will not commence until January 2009, we are
currently accepting submissions of 5 – 10 minute screenplays
or short stories that can be adapted for the weekly episodes.
Your script or short story should tell us of an incident or
a peculiar occurrence taking place inside one of the rooms
of Hotel Guignol. This is a horror/suspense/crime/mystery
series with a hint of noir, so your stories must be fitting
within one or a mixture of these genres.Think of the format
as “Twilight Zone” & “Tales From the Crypt”… only inside
a hotel and told in a third or less of the running time.
Your story could take place anywhere in time from the
1920’s to modern day. If your script is selected for an
episode, you will receive $100 USD and a “written by” credit
in the end title sequence. If your short story is selected
for an episode, you will receive $50 USD and a “based upon”
credit in the end title sequence.
