The 8th Annual First Look Project fulfills the requests of studios, production companies, agencies, and top managers by finding unique, high-concept material across two main categories:
- Screenplay – divisions for Action/Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Horror/Thriller, and Sci-fi/Fantasy
- TV Pilot – divisions for Hour and Half-hour original pilots, any genre
One winner in each division receives a share of $17,500, industry circulation, and long-term development assistance from Script Pipeline’s executive team.
Supported by QC Entertainment (Get Out, Us), Good Fear Film + Management (Mulan), Panay Films (Masterminds), Lakeshore Entertainment (Age of Adaline), Zero Gravity Management (Ozark), Silent R Management (reps Academy Award winner Barry Jenkins), Lit Entertainment Group (Prisoners), and other Script Pipeline partners, the competition introduces the best scripts to major companies.
Unlike Script Pipeline’s main Screenwriting and TV writing competitions, entries for First Look are judged equally on writing ability and commercial potential. The originality of the concept and a strong understanding of genre and marketplace trends will take precedence, as well as overall writing ability.
