***CONTEST CLOSED FOR ENTRIES!***

WINNER - Charles!!!!

Runner Up's Coming soon!


Attention All Screenwriters - January 27th - February 27th

http://www.digipress.us/pics/script-6.png

Our First Script Contest Is Underway!

Shorts & Features (All genres, any budget)

Some Short Facts!

Entry Fee: A post here stating you are entering the contest

Length: Min 15 pages - Max 190 pages

Winner: The winner of the contest will get their script handed to 3 very large production companies in California that I am very close to with and a Nick Soares (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1852265/) Seal of Approval on it. They are looking for great content to create, shorts or features, whichever is most creative.

This contest guarantees the above, but this contest cannot guarantee your script will be produced. The hardest part about getting a script produced is getting it in the hands of people that have MONEY to produce it, not just production companies, but production companies that really have MONEY. I can help with that!

Active members as of now will get priority in getting their script read, as there is no entry fee there is no guarantee your script will get read.

Priority Reads Go In The Order Of:

1 - PRO Members Ranks - starting at 5 Star to 1 Star (New or Old)
2 - Active Members (Rank Status)
3 - Members that show they shared this
4 - Members (Rank Status)
5 - New Members after this date

This is the way, the life, and the truth. If you don't like it don't enter.

PRO Member ships start at only $1 Powering A Filmmaker Community | Indiegogo (http://www.indiegogo.com/film-makers)

Why have priority? --- Why not, why should members be able to get their script read before other members that contribute to the forum? This is a free contest, but the rules are set. You can enter at no fee, just register (http://www.filmmakerforum.org/register.php) (FREE) is the minimum requirement.

(Deadline Feb 27th - Winner Announced March 27th) 2013

Hmmmm I may try and write a script and enter it. I have never wrote a full script before but have been meaning to.

If I enter can you just tell me how well I did by the end?

How do I send my script?

Patrick Wiley
02-08-2013, 12:10 PM
Also can I send you something on behalf of someone else. I did rewrites on another script but the over all story comes from someone else. None the less he's given me permission to shop it around.

Is there anything besides just "the winner"? Any honorable mentions?

Will anyone get feedback?

I think I might actually get a feature done for this. Maybe...if not, I'm going to for sure be submitting one of my shorts to this. I'm excited for the competition to begin.

Thank you for this opportunity, I am submitting "Blood of the Blood", a vampire comedy. Can I submit more then one script for the contest?

Nick Soares
02-18-2013, 01:05 PM
Hi L A Morgan, one script only per person. Two scripts would really bog down the reading time frame.

Hello Nick,
I'm just about to hit the "send" button for my submission, a fantasy adventure entitled PETRIFIED, which is about the real-life descendant of a fictional troll hunter who rescues three “princesses” and safeguards Norway’s gold reserves from reanimated trolls that have run amok in modern-day Norway. For those members of the forum who don't know it yet, TROLLS ARE THE NEW VAMPIRES!

Thanks!
