MOVIE AWARDS SEASON

Time to start prepping your script for Nicholl, Austin and Page

To increase your odds and get better feedback,your script must elevate its genre in a unique way.

To reach the semifinals or beyond, you must offer something truly memorable. You’ll go further with someone to guide you.

A CONTEST CHECKUP helps you know where you stand and what you need to take your script to the next level.

SCRIPT CAMP helps with both. We’ll work together to test your contest through storyboarding and other techniques.

A PRIVATE STUDIO gives you VIP treatment for your script, along with insider tips on how to make your story stand out among the crowd.

ASK YOURSELF

ARE YOU CONTEST READY?

Does your script convey your vision to the contest judges?

Have you found the art and writer’s voice in your story?

Have you chosen the best contest for your unique story?

These are hard questions to answer without submitting your script to a contest and waiting months for feedback.

Traditional coverage can help, but it may not go deep enough to help you truly elevate your script.

 

Great screenwriting books and classes are key, but rarely cover the unique nature of contest judging.

 

Lack of focused guidance can leave you unsure of how you stack up against your competition.
