FilmMakers.com would like to take this opportunity to
thank all the talented writers and filmmakers who participated in our
first contest. We were surprised by the response to our contest, which
surpassed our estimates by almost 100 % attracting a total of 756 entries
worldwide. We were equally but pleasantly surprised with the high volume
of exceptional material received.
Some of the scripts were postmarked by the due date,
but arrived as late as the 12th of May 2000. The majority of entries came
from the US, with some (approximately 10%) from England,
Australia, Canada, Israel and New Zealand.
Last week we shipped the last of the top 100 scripts to
the Radmin Company which will read all the scripts and choose the top
twenty. (Approximately 30 days)
FilmMakers.com and The Radmin Company will pick the top
10 semifinalists and subsequently the top five finalists.
FilmMakers.com, The Radmin Company, and two production
companies will read the five finalists' submissions and select a winner.
