What Happens Now?
These finalists will be invited to take part in an online workshop on Friday 04 September with Greenacre Films and writer and Exec Producer, Fraser Ayres. The workshop will give the writers an introduction to Greenacre Films, as well as working on their 2 page pitches for their unique film ideas. They will then rework their pitches over the following week and deliver them to Greenacre Films.
The Next Stage
Following the delivery of the updated pitches, Greenacre will choose the projects they’d like to take through to the next stage. They will offer selected writers a fee to develop their idea into a 10 page treatment, before deciding if they’d like to commission a script. Writers who are asked to develop their idea into a full script will be paid industry standard fees.
Good luck to all our shortlisted writers, we’re looking forward to meeting you all at the online workshop!
