Shore has the highest caliber of Judges, Industry Roster and Directors of any screenwriting competition out there. That’s why we’ve been able to help 60+ writers gain representation, option, sell and have their screenplays produced. 

Below are a few quotes from some of our writers and roster. 

AFTER WINNING SHORE SCRIPTS, I SUCCESSFULLY OPTIONED MY WINNING SCREENPLAY TO DOBRE FILMS WHO ARE PART OF SHORE'S ROSTER. THEY ALSO HELPED ME GET REPRESENTATION. SHORE HAS BEEN INSTRUMENTAL IN CONNECTING ME WITH PRODUCERS AND CREATING ONGOING CAREER OPPORTUNITIES.

LOUIS ACKERMAN - WRITER OF BLUMHOUSE & HULU FILM, FLESH & BLOOD

BY CURATING A SHORTLIST OF UNDISCOVERED SCREENPLAYS, SHORE SCRIPTS HAS CREATED A FAST TRACK FOR NEW WRITERS TO BE DISCOVERED BY PRODUCERS AND EXECUTIVES WHO MIGHT OTHERWISE MISS THEIR WORK. AS INDEPENDENT PRODUCERS, WE ARE ALWAYS HAPPY TO SEE PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS FOR OUTLIERS.

JOANNA LAURIE & STEPHEN WOOLLEY - JUDGES / NUMBER 9 FILMS - OSCAR NOM PRODUCERS OF CAROL, YOUTH, PERRIER'S BOUNTY, THE CRYING GAME, INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE

BEING A WINNER WAS VERY EXCITING. IN THE MONTHS FOLLOWING I HAVE BEEN APPROACHED BY NUMEROUS INDUSTRY PEOPLE INTERESTED IN SCRIPTS OF MINE. DELIGHTED I DECIDED TO ENTER.

BEN CLEARY - OSCAR WINNING WRITER/DIRECTOR

WINNING SHORE HAS BEEN A CAREER CHANGING EXPERIENCE. WE OPTIONED OUR SCRIPT WITH SHORE JUDGE, OSCAR NOMINATED PRODUCER STEPHEN WOOLLEY. IT'S OPENED DOORS WE SIMPLE COULDN'T HAVE OPENED OURSELVES. SHORE HAS SHOWN US THAT THE CAREER WE'VE ALWAYS WANTED IS POSSIBLE.

DAVE & NELL THOMAS

SHORE IS IN A CATEGORY ALL OF ITS OWN. AFTER I WON, THEY SENT OUT MY SCRIPT TO INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS THAT I WOULD'VE NEVER HAD ACCESS TO. THEY HAVE INCREDIBLE INDUSTRY CONNECTIONS, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, THEY HAVE INDUSTRY RESPECT. THEY HELPED ME GET AMAZING REPRESENTATION. NOW, I FEEL LIKE I'M FINALLY ON THE ROAD TO BE A WORKING WRITER. AND IT'S ALL BECAUSE OF SHORE SCRIPTS.

BETH CURRY - REPPED BY ELEVATE ENT

I WOULD LIKE TO APPLAUD EACH OF THE WRITERS AND THANK THEM FOR ALLOWING ME TO READ THEIR WONDERFUL WORK. EACH WRITER IS CLEARLY AT A LEVEL THAT ASSURES ME THAT IF THEY ARE NOT ALREADY WORKING (PAID TO WRITE), THAT TIME IS NIGH.

FRANK RENZULLI - JUDGE / WRITER ON THE SOPRANOS, THE WALKING DEAD, CRASH

AFTER WINNING, CHRISTOPHER FIGG, ONE OF SHORES JUDGES, CONTACTED ME AND OPTIONED MY SCRIPT, WHICH WAS GREAT BECAUSE IT WAS FURTHER VALIDATION FROM THE INDUSTRY.

EUGENE RHEE

CAN I GO ON RECORD AS SAYING HOW HIGH I THOUGHT THE STANDARD WAS. EVERY ONE OF THESE WRITERS IS A TALENT.

MATTHEW GRAHAM - JUDGE / WRITER ON DOCTOR WHO, ELECTRIC DREAMS, LIFE ON MARS

SHORE SCRIPTS IS AN ESSENTIAL RESOURCE FOR OUR DEVELOPMENT ENDEAVORS. WE CONSISTENTLY ARE INTRODUCED TO EXTREMELY TALENTED SCREENWRITERS AND ALWAYS FIND GEMS IN THEIR SUBMISSIONS EACH SEASON.
