Midlands Spotlight - New scriptwriting competition launched

A brand new competition offering anyone with a creative short film idea has been launched with an opportunity for new and upcoming writers to have their work professionally produced for FREE by Daniel Alexander Films.

Daniel Alexander is a multi award winning director and recently directed a film for the Commonwealth Games, which made history after it was televised by the BBC to over 1 billion people around the world.

Daniel has worked with an impressive calibre of clients including the Commonwealth Games, BBC, Nike, Apple, Channel 4, MTV and many more and the competition is a new event to encourage more writers to get their ideas on screen.

But how does it work? Entrants are asked to submit a treatment for their short film idea using their free template (click here)

With a deadline of 12pm on 13th July 2018, if your treatment is selected, Daniel will request a properly formatted script for your short film idea.

The scripts will be judged by a panel of industry professional judges, who will declare one overall winner. Then the winner will have their film professional made and also be invited to be involved in the entire filmmaking process.

The winning film will be shot on a RED DRAGON CINEMA rental package worth over £1000, provided by official sponsors for the competition PANNY HIRE, Birmingham's leading camera rental house.

To be eligible, you must be living in the UK and have an original short film idea that runs for no longer than 10 minutes.

So if you have an idea for film then please send all entires to submissions@danielalexanderfilms.com
