How it works:

Members are invited from time to time to submit a Text Story Video 90 seconds or more in length, along with a Text Story Pitch for the next nine (9) episodes of their Text Story Video. Up to two (2) semi-finalists will be selected by Filmaka Members who submitted Text Story Videos/Text Story Pitches and voted for Text Story Videos/Text Story Pitches in the applicable Periodic Competition, and up to two (2) semi-finalists will be selected by Registered Users through a voting process. The four (4) semi-finalists will each be awarded a prize of One Hundred Fifty Dollars ($150). Thereafter, up to one (1) finalist out of the four (4) semi-finalists will be selected by Filmaka Members who submitted Text Story Videos/Text Story Pitches and voted for Text Story Videos/Text Story Pitches in the applicable Periodic Competition, and one (1) finalist will be selected by Registered Users through a voting process. The two (2) finalists will be awarded a grand prize of $1500 each to produce the nine (9) remaining episodes of their Text Story Video based on their Text Story Script.

The Text Story Pitches should be as detailed as possible so that Filmaka executives have a clear vision of the Text Story series the Member wants to create. Character lists, an overall summary of the text series, storyboards and scene sketches may be included as part of the Member’s submission. While there is no limit to the number of pages for the Text Story Pitch, it is important to remember that the produced version of the Text Story episodes based on the Text Story Pitch must be 90 seconds or longer.
