Break out your scriptwriting software and get to work, because the Industry Insider Screenwriting Contestgives you the unique opportunity to turn one of these three loglines into a solid spec screenplay that could be your ticket to Hollywood success.
Standard Deadline: August 31, 2015 Standard Fee: $50
Can you turn a provided logline into a killer script? Working from one of these loglines, you're challenged to create up to the first 15 pages of an original script based on the given concept. Make it your own - drama, action, sci-fi...anywhere your imagination takes you.
Logline #1 "When a young archaeologist is selected to a team to excavate a recently-uncovered lost city, an ancient curse is unleashed that will forever change the course of her life."
Logline #2 "A founding father falls through a time vortex and finds himself trapped in another era of US history."
Logline #3 "A lost child makes an unlikely friend while trying to find their way back home - but is this new friend there to help or hinder the child's quest?"
"If you're lucky enough to be a finalist in The Industry Insider Contest you've already won. The prizes are great, but the knowledge you gain from working with their mentors is invaluable. I went from my first fifteen pages to a polished feature length script in just a few months and learned plenty of new tricks of the trade." -Mickey Fisher, (writer and creator of CBS TV Show Extant), The Marginal Way - Contest Winner (Susannah Grant Round)
