FILMAKA TO FUND YOUR WEB SERIES
NEW competition FORMAT.
WIN $35,000 for an original 10 episode web series comedy.
Web Series Competition # 7
Competition Dates: Friday, December 20th, 2019 to Monday, January 20th, 2020
Filmaka members submit a 3 to 5 minute pilot script in the comedy genre for an original web series, along with descriptive summaries for the subsequent NINE, 3 to 5 minute episodes, or NINE scripts for the subsequent 3 to 5 minute episodes. The winner will receive $35,000 to shoot their 10 episode original comedy web series over 4 months.
The pilot script and the episode descriptions should be as detailed as possible so that Filmaka executives have a clear vision of the web series that you want to make. In lieu of NINE descriptive summaries, and along with your pilot script, you may instead submit the scripts for NINE, 3 to 5 minute episodes. In addition to the pilot script, and along with the nine episode descriptions or nine scripts, you must provide an overall summary of the web series, a character list, and an overall budget. Please submit your credits and a short bio as well. Storyboards and scene sketches may also be included as part of your submission. While there is no limit to the number of pages for the pilot script, or for the episode descriptions or scripts, it is important to remember that the produced version of each episode will only be three (3) to five (5) minutes in length.
--Filmaka Members must submit their pilot script and nine episode descriptions or nine scripts by Monday, January 20th, 2020.--
