THE SPRING SEASON OF THE SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT FUND IS NOW OPEN!

Image

Every screenwriter, at some point, struggles to finish their script, whether that's due to the dreaded writer’s block, plotting issues, or just finding the time to sit down and write.

That’s why we created our Script Development Fund, to help you find the time to finish your screenplay with dedicated support from our expert team.

Our Cash prizes will allow you to go on a writer’s retreat, take time off work, or use the money any way you see fit to meet your writing goals.

Plus, our Head of Education & Script Development, Lee Hamilton, will be there to offer one-to-one support and feedback as you develop your script for 12 months.

“I know the pitfalls of writing a screenplay. I’ve been there! I also happen to know a great deal about looking at a screenplay from the reader’s perspective, which is why I’m excited to help two upcoming writers overcome the same hurdles, share my industry knowledge, and be part of a 12-month journey that will ultimately help them to develop their core ideas into the final drafts that will showcase their talent to the world” - Lee Hamilton.

An Interview with Our 2023 Script Development Fund Winner

Christy Smith-Sloman won second place in our 2023 Script Development Fund with her feature TO BE YOUNG, GIFTED & BLACK; THE LORRAINE HANSBERRY STORY.

In this interview, we learn more about how the Script Development Fund has helped Christy finish her script and what inspired Christy to write her story.

“I’m having such a great time working with Lee. It’s like a dream come true. Writing a screenplay is such a lonely endeavor. And it’s even harder to get anybody to read it. Her notes have been completely spot on and she’s really helping me elevate my script.”- Christy Smith-Sloman.
