Industry Diary – Top producers ask to see winning script!

The past month in our Industry Diary: It’s been a long year, but we’re always looking to get our scripts pitched to industry. As productions get back on their feet, here’s an update about what we’ve been up to lately:

 

  • One of our winners provided an excellent new draft of his powerful script yesterday, refined following our latest free Development Notes to get it pitch-ready. We’ve immediately sent the script on to Oscar-winning producers who asked to see the new draft once ready. Really excited to see what they think of it!
  • I attended the WGGB Open Session discussing the impact of Covid-19 and Brexit has had on the industry, and information and guidance people can receive in the future. I also heard stories from people’s personal projects that were postponed, cancelled, or fortunate enough to be adapted to go ahead during the pandemic.
  • Making enquiries through IMDb Pro with potential producers about some of our winners such as END OF THE LINE, RIDING WITH CHARLIE and MAKE THE WEATHER. You can read all about the writers and the scripts in the articles linked.
  • We’ve been communicating with our latest winners to get their work pitch ready. All our winners have now received Development Notes from our analysts and are hard at work on new drafts of their scripts. We’ve also been putting together one-page pitches for them, a key tool for us when pitching.
  • One of our recent winners is reworking their script into a different format after an expression of interest from one of our contacts, who is looking to pass on sci-fi scripts for an award-winning Hollywood professional to direct. Loglines for all our winners scripts were also sent out to top producers for consideration.

Winter 2021 Screenwriting Contest now OPEN!

2020 hasn’t gone the way anyone expected, but we’re determined to make the most of 2021 – and we want you to do the same. That’s why we’re launching the Winter 2021 Screenwriting Contest today, which will be open until January 31st!

With many production shoots currently limited by lockdowns and other restrictions, the best thing screenwriters can do right now is keep writing. Focus has shifted onto finding future projects for after the pandemic, with many commissioners searching for scripts for several years down the line.

So if you’ve been hard at work over the last few months – or if you’re just looking to get off to the best possible start in 2021 – this is the contest for you! The Winter 2021 Screenwriting Contest is your chance to make the new year the best it can possibly be.

The Grand Prize is $3500, and the top three scripts all receive:

  • A year of free script development worth up to $3200
  • Guaranteed pitching to industry
  • An invitation to a lunch with an industry executive in L.A.
  • Exclusive listing from InkTip

The final deadline is on January 31st, but there are plenty of reasons to enter early. You get free entry when you buy one of our script reports, and once you’ve received your report, you can resubmit a new draft of your script for free! Give yourself plenty of time to redraft based on our feedback by buying as soon as possible.

So click HERE to enter the Winter 2021 Screenwriting Contest, and take your shot at making next year a great one for you and your script!

Fall Screenwriting Contest – 1 Week Extension!

We’re here to help all writers, and we like to keep the door open for them.

So if you haven’t entered yet, use this extra week to polish your work. Give it one last proofread, tidy up those subplots, and make sure it’s in the best possible shape.

And then, when you’re ready – the most important thing of all, enter the Fall Screenwriting Contest before the extension closes!
