They receive a ton of applications. If an application is not up to their requirements it's an easy reason to not consider it. Two applications with similar storytelling chops they'll go with the one that followed their instructions.

Hey guys! How's everyone's application holding up?

I was just wondering if anyone is doing the feature length concept here, and if anyone has an idea on how specific the concept should be? Do we need to be able to discuss the entire plot (say, be able to each major event in each act), or can we generally say what each act covers?

Anyway, we have a couple more days, so I hope we all turn in a good application!

I came across an example from previous years and it was pretty much a full plot summary explaining hoe each event in the film led to the next. It only followed the protagonist's story though no side plots or anything.
