First Look Project - Deadline October 4th

Winners Receive:
$10,000 (Screenplay), $2,000 (TV), $2,000 (Short Film)

LATE DEADLINE: October 4th

The 6th Annual First Look Project fulfills the requests of major studios, production companies, and top managers by finding fresh, high-concept material across three main categories:

Screenplay – divisions for Action, Comedy, Drama, Horror, and Sci-fi
Teleplay – original pilots, any genre
Short Film – produced short films or series pilots

Supported by Good Fear Film + Management (Rings), Panay Films (Masterminds), Lakeshore Entertainment (Age of Adaline), Silent R Management (reps Academy Award Winner Barry Jenkins), Madhouse Entertainment (Prisoners), and other Script Pipeline partners, the competition introduces the best scripts and filmmakers to major companies.

Most recent success story: The Devil in Evelyn, winner of the 2016 First Look Project (Teleplay), was picked up for development by Mandalay Television in September. Script Pipeline set up the writers, brothers Ben and Tyler Soper, with meetings after extensive circulation to Pipeline’s industry network.

"The First Look Project was an awesome experience. . . . They became our personal champions and proceeded to surprise us again and again with the extent of their support.  Thanks to them, we had meetings with a manager and production companies and are now developing our pilot with Mandalay Entertainment.  Entering this contest moved our careers forward in an unprecedented way."
- Ben and Tyler Soper, First Look Project Winners

One winner in each category receives a share of $14,000 in prizes, industry circulation, and long-term personalized development assistance from Script Pipeline’s executive team. We also select up to 3 finalists for each division.
