HOW WE GET YOU & YOUR WORK SEEN!
GETTING PAST THE GATEKEEPERS
You've finished your screenplay but now what! How are you supposed to get you work into the hands of agents and producers if they won't read unsolicited material? What if you don't already have connections within the industry?
Talented writers are getting overlooked!
Shore Scripts exists to connect writers with the Film & TV industry.
The old system is broken. Why should you have to move to Hollywood, or any other film hub city, and work as an assistant for minimum wage so that one day you might get the slimmest of chances to pitch your script to a producer.
We have spent years building strong relationships within the industry.
Over 300 production companies, agents, managers & directors are on our roster looking to sign new writers and find great screenplays to produce that come through our contests. They read the projects we send them because we have a track record of finding the best upcoming writing talent. They trust our taste.
All of our winners and finalists will have a call with our Writer Development Manager about their screenplay before we start sending it out to our Industry Roster.
FINISHING YOUR SCREENPLAY
We get it, it can be so hard to find the time and motivation to sit and write. Life and work just gets in the way.
Rewriting your screenplay over and over until it's ready to be sent out into the world takes blood, sweat and tears. You need support.
FUNDING & DEVELOPMENT
It's important for us to not only get your screenplay out there to the industry, but to also help you master your craft. Our development resources include mentorship with Oscar & Emmy nominated filmmakers, coverage feedback, screenwriting articles, and a supportive community within The Script Hub. It's all there to encourage, motivate, and help you learn about the craft and industry.
Our Short Film Fund produces our writer's scripts. Having your film play at top festivals and gaining that credit is paramount to helping you build your career. Our Cash Prizes will allow writers to find more time to do what they love to do. Write!
