Here’s a forward from UK filmmaker and author Chris Jones. Sounds like a terrific opportunity.
One-Page Film Maker Challenge… Are YOU Up For It?
Four Days In August…
Our 1 page screenplay competition is now closed and the winner will be announced on Friday. At that point, the script will be made available for YOU to make.
You have fourteen days to complete it and upload to us.
There are great prizes up for grabs, including cash, tickets to the London Screenwriters’ Festival
and the judges are AMAZING! Including Paul Greengrass (Bourne franchise director) Philip Bloom (DSLR guru) and Jeremy Bolt (big shot Hollywood producer).
Now here is the GREAT news. The script is world class, kick ass terrific! How do I know? Well I have read the twelve finalists and EVERY one of them is great. The first one I read moved me to tears… That’s when I knew we were on to something extraordinary…
If you have ever entered a film challenge before you will know it’s usually the script that lets you down – it’s crazy to write a script in a few hours and rush out and shoot it there and then. It may be great for energy, but it’s NOT great for considered work that shows off what you can REALLY do.
Of course it also means that all your competitors have the same script to work from. So the winner of the Film Challenge is really going to succeed because they were the best film makers. You can’t blame the script. ;-)
And what an amazing experiment too, to explore how other film makers interpret the same material.
OK, if you want to participate… AND YOU SHOULD! Join the email list here…http://www.livingspiritgroup.com/4-day-film/
…and we will send you information in the coming days…
GOOD LUCK! It’s going to be awesome!
