Can You Write a Screenplay in 30 Days?

Posted by OwnAFilmCompany.com on October 6, 2010

If you’re a potential screen writer and up for a challenge, Script Frenzy, may have the perfect way to spend next April.

In April, thousands of participants worldwide will attempt to tackle 100 pages of original material in just 30 days. The tight deadline prevents writers from getting bogged down with formatting and the formal rules of scriptwriting.  Script Frenzy invites everyone to bash out screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, or graphic novels.

In order to “win” at Script Frenzy, participants need only sign up and complete the goal of writing 100 pages in April. In return for their efforts, Script Frenzy winners are granted a Script Frenzy Winner’s Certificate, web icon, and eternal bragging rights.

Here at OwnAFilmCompany.com, we’re thinking of participating ourselves and if any of our members take part, we’ll feature them on our website,  so let us know if you are going to take part.

Visit http://www.scriptfrenzy.org/eng/whatisscriptfrenzy for more details.

Guardian Student Media Awards

Posted by OwnAFilmCompany.com on March 23, 2009

“The Guardian Student Media Awards have sought out the very best student writers, designers, broadcasters, editors and photographers for over 30 years.

And this year one of those people could be you.

Enter the 2009 Guardian Student Media Awards and soon you could be playing against real media heavyweights including the likes of Andrew Rawnsley, Rankin, Jonathan Freedland, Rachel Newsome and Emily Barr – all previous winners. Along with 100s of others, these guys were mere mortals like you before making it big in the media.

As well as choosing individual and category winners, our esteemed panel of judges will pick out one overall winner who displays particularly outstanding talent and promise. That person will undertake an extended six-week work placement at the Guardian and receive a subsistence allowance of £1,650.”

The categories, instructions and application forms are all on http://www.guardian.co.uk/student-media-awards-2009.
