Jameson First Shot Now Accepting Entries

logo (1)

Deadline: 5:00pm, 4th January 2016

Jameson First Shot is an opportunity given to budding filmmakers who have a vision and a voice, but don’t have the benefit of an influential uncle in the movie business.

With a little help from Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti, three writers/directors will be selected to have their scripts made into short films by the award-winning Trigger Street Productions.

The Hollywood treatment doesn’t end there, as you will also have the life-changing opportunity to direct an Oscar-winning star.

Guidelines to Enter:
– You must be at least 25 years old to enter.
– Your story should be around the great and/or unexpected things that can happen when you fear less and invite life in.
– Your script must be no longer than seven A4 pages in 12 point Courier (Scorsese’s favourite font).
– Only entrants living in South Africa, Russia, USA, UK, Ireland, India, Australia, Canada (excluding residents of Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia) and the following areas of India: State of Maharashtra, National Capital region, Delhi and State of Karnataka (collectively, “Territory”) Kenya and Bulgaria are eligible to enter.
– Due to alcohol industry regulations people under the age of 25 cannot be depicted.
– Scenes that depict drug taking or drug references, drunk driving, excessive violence or excessive drinking will not be accepted.
– Your script should include no more than seven cast members (Think Ocean’s 7 – the pre-prequel)

– Multiple submissions will be void.
