F17 ACM Screenwriting Competition
Fall 2017 ACM Screenwriting Competition
Deadline: Friday, December 1, 2017
Win up to $1,000 To Produce Your Film!
The ACM continues our exciting screenwriting competition for our students. We will award one or two scholarship/grants to a student to produce their winning screenplay.
Here’s how it works:
Submit PDF files of the following by 4pm on Friday, December 1, 2017:
1) Your original short screenplay (including a title page WITHOUT your name or contact information)
2) A half-page synopsis and a preliminary budget showing anticipated production costs that the scholarship/grant would cover
3) YOUR UH STUDENT ID NUMBER
Send all materials electronically to Competition Coordinator Joel Moffett at firstname.lastname@example.org by the 4pm deadline. No late entries will be accepted. Again- NO NAMES ON PDF SCREENPLAY FILE!
If your proposal is selected, you’ll be awarded up to $1,000 to produce your film as an ACM 399 in the Spring of 2018 or Fall of 2018.
Screenplays will be judged using the following criteria:
-Articulation of character arc when appropriate
-Students enrolled in ACM courses- restricted to majors
-You must be a continuing student – you’ll be enrolling full-time Spring 2018.
-You must have an overall grade point average of 2.75.
-You can submit as many screenplays as you want!
NOTE: Winning students are required to produce their films as part of an ACM 399 Directed Study. All winners must agree to provide the Academy for Creative Media a production journal outlining pre-production, shooting and post production schedules, as well as any rough, director’s and/or final cuts of the production, which shall be copyrighted as an ACM Production.
