There is absolutely NO COST to participate in our Short Script Contest
Short film complete scripts total running time must be a minimum of 5 pages and no longer than 20 pages. Any submissions shorter or longer than the minimum or maximum length will be disqualified regardless if they are in the 5 highest top rated scripts.
All short films must be uploaded in www.script-up.com SUMMARIZED and FULLY UNDERSTANDABLE* in order to be rated and reviewed by the Readers. The 5 highest top rated scripts from the Readers will be sent to Volition Pictures in pdf format. The Volition Pictures’ team along with Steven Bernstein will finally decide which script will produce, based on the quality of the script and the comments made by the Readers. The winning script will be filmed in the island of Syros, Greece.
The Language of the script (summary & the complete script) must be in English.
Participants will submit their summarized script in their Control Panel->Movies->Short Film section (checkout our Tutorial Video).
Scripters are allowed to comment on other Scripters’ scripts, but they will not be included in the draw procedure for the 5 lucky Readers.
The Short film script must be the original work of the Participant and may not be based whole or in part on any fictional or non-fictional material, published or unpublished, produced or unproduced for which the Participant does not have rights.
The rights to the Participant’s short film script should not have been previously optioned or sold.
After a short film script is submitted, no new submissions or corrected drafts can be made by the Participant. No exceptions.
PRIZE: The winning script will be produced by Volition Pictures.
Participants will review and rate all the summarized scripts (objectively) in order to be automatically included in the final draw for their prizes.
