A few weeks after Script Pipeline sent the 2015 finalist/winner loglines industry-wide, Screenwriting Competition winner Henry Dunham was picked up by Madhouse Entertainment (Prisoners).
Agency powerhouse UTA followed soon after.
“While I’m a little surprised he found representation so quick, I’m not at all surprised it happened,” said Script Pipeline Director of Development Matt Misetich. “It was inevitable. And it goes beyond writing ability–he’s one of the most grounded, humble writers I’ve met all year. That attitude will take him far in what will of course be a continual process of collaboration. For two tremendous companies like Madhouse and UTA to jump on board is extraordinary. No doubt this will be the first step in a long writing career.”
Henry is currently developing new material for both film and TV, and his winning screenplay Militia, which earned him $20,000 in the contest, is making the rounds for potential production. Script Pipeline was his first screenwriting competition win.
