WriteMovies 36th Writing Contest results

WriteMovies 36th Writing Contest results We received nearly 1000 screenplays, books, plays, short stories and articles from the following countries: USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Belgium, India, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Italy, Greece, Nigeria, Georgia, Mexico, Japan, South Africa and The Cameroon. The overall standard was very high, hence the large number of writers we found to be eligible for the final rounds. We decided against many competent works for a variety of reasons. Some were not suited for the cinematic medium. Others were conceptually flawed, in that they either delivered last year’s movie or an idea that was just not feasible. There is nothing sadder than a brilliantly executed “bad idea”, (well, unless it’s a badly executed good idea). But in all honesty, the shelves of most Hollywood pros are lined with these. We hope that those who did not make will stay in touch with us. We have enjoyed our myriad of email exchanges and are working hard at making this site more relevant to your careers. Don’t forget that many of our writers got their careers going by using our consulting service: CLICK HERE With thanks and best wishes to you all, YOUR WRITEMOVIES TEAM Winners: 1st Place – Ben Gibson, “LAST CALL” 2nd Place – Nick Amatuzio, “BLOOD RUNS DEEP” 3rd Place – Raymond A.

Resultate des WMC36 Wettbewerbes

Seit 1999 hilft WriteMovies Autoren, ihr Ziel zu erreichen. Resultate des 36. Wettbewerb: Lektorats- und Beratungsservice für Autoren, Produzenten und Fernsehsender. Jetzt Neu! Lassen Sie Ihr Skript von Alex Ross, der Andrew Niccol, den Drehbuchautoren des Oskar-nominierten Films ‘The Truman Show’, entdeckte, beraten. Optimieren Sie den Erfolg ihres Projektes durch die kompetente Beratung durch unsere Hollywood-Experten: Ob Konzept, Exposé, Treatment, Drehbuch oder Roman, wir bieten Produzenten nicht nur eine schnelle und kompetente Entscheidungshilfe, sondern haben auch die nötige Expertise Konzepte und Drehbücher so anzupassen, dass sie den Ansprüchen des deutschen und internationalen Marktes gerecht werden. Wie gewohnt, bieten wir unseren Lektoratsservice natürlich weiterhin auch Autoren an: Sie plotten, planen, schreiben und durchlaufen sämtliche Phasen von Euphorie über Skepsis bis hin zur absoluten Verzweiflung? Damit sind Sie nicht allein. Irgendwann braucht jeder Autor professionelle Kritik, die einen erweiterten Blickwinkel auf das Werk ermöglicht. Sie brauchen jemanden, der deutlich macht, was stark an Ihrer Arbeit ist, aber auch was überdacht werden sollte. Diese professionelle Hilfe möchten wir Ihnen für Ihre Drehbücher aber auch für Romane, Kurzgeschichten und Theaterstücke anbieten.
