Why Independent Films

In the era of New Media and streaming services, there is no shortage of material. The main difference between an undiscovered but talented writer and a so-called Hollywood "pro" in the industry is experience. By seeking out the diamonds in the rough, we give new filmmakers the opportunity to gain experience creating their vision as a produced film to serve as your calling card across the industry as a creator.

Independent film has always been about new generations of writers, directors, and filmmakers demonstrating a new vision and perspective of the world around us through the medium of visual storytelling. While a strong script can sometimes advance your career as a writer, a completed film is always the better demonstration of your work as a produced writer and creator.

Enter the Get Produced Screenplay Contest today for your chance to win up to $10,000 in production services to bring your script to the screen.
