SEE YOUR WORDS COME TO LIFE! College students — we want to produce your screenplay for $1M!!
When asked to describe the experience of watching his screenplay come to life — on a professional set, with professional actors, and a professional budget — 2018 winner Stanley Kalu used one word: life-changing. “‘My heart is full,’ is a statement that played, on loop, from the moment I won till the final day of filming. There is no greater joy than a validated dream and the weight of said joy continues to put a smile on my face. There are very few spaces or structures in existence that allow a young person to create, untethered,” Kalu said. “From the first day, I felt as though I was being poured into, not just with knowledge or opportunity, but with a brand of love and support rarely extended in any industry, let alone the movies.” - 1 hour ago
