Web Series Competition (Murder Myteries)
Stage 1 Deadline May 22 nd, 2018
HOW IT WORKS:
Filmaka members have three weeks to submit written Pitches only for the 3-5 minute pilot of an original MURDER MYSTERY web series they want to create. After the Pitch competition closes, up to four (4) winners will be given $5000 each to shoot their Short which is their pilot for an original web series. The winners will have eight weeks to submit their Short along with nine (9) written Scripts, that together make up a ten-episode web series. Of the up to four (4) submissions, one winner will be awarded $25,000 to produce their original web series.
The Pitch and/or the Scripts should be as detailed as possible so that Filmaka executives have a clear vision of the web series the Member wants to create. Character lists, an overall summary of the web 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 Pitch or Scripts, it is important to remember that the produced version of the Pitch or Script will only be three (3) to five (5) minutes in length.
