The basic information needed is a logline, brief summary, bios for the key team members, a cast list (if applicable), answers about your project (budget, audience, strategy), an inclusion statement, and a link to a work sample. If you’re hard at work on your project, these answers should be easily accessible!
To help you prepare before accessing the live form, we’ve made a PDF that lays out exactly what we’re looking for. You can download it HERE.
YOU MUST SUBMIT A LINK TO A WORK SAMPLE. We prefer that the work sample be specific to this project: you may submit a short film, proof of concept, trailer, sizzle, podcast, filmed performance (if it was previously a theater piece), or scene selects/a work in progress if the film is in post production. If the work sample if from a previous project you’ve worked on, please explain what your role was on this project and how it is reflective of your body of work as a whole and your goals for the project you are submitting.
We are willing to accept films adapted from books, but you must own the option and submit a link to a visual work sample as well, even if that visual sample does not directly correlate to the project you are submitting with.
In other words, we are not accepting scripts in this stage of submissions, but you will be able to send them if you move onto the next round. If you have any questions about what you can submit, feel free to contact us.
Multiple submissions from the same person or team will be accepted, but each submission must be completed separately with a different form.
