In the first two FAQs I dealt with questions that readers raised about how to participate in the Launchpad's bootcamp and win the $5000 competition and also why I was doing it in the first place. In this FAQ I responded to various questions: like can non-US residents participate, what genres would work, and whether participants can submit already completed scripts.
As I've noted previously, registration opens on Monday, June 19 at 9am PST (LA time) and will close on Friday at midnight. So this will be your last chance this year to participate and win the production financing. So, mark it in your calendar!
In the video below I wanted to do a bit of "housecleaning" in terms of some specific questions that were raised in the survey a couple of weeks ago. Check it out and if you still have questions, don't hesitate to put them in the comments section below the video.
Next week I will release a three-part series on how to approach writing a feature screenplay that is microbudget-ready. This will be a great lead-up to the actual launch on June 19 and will have tons of great tips on how to get started. I think that screenwriting is the least valued part of the filmmaking process and, in my experience, is usually the weakest part of the microbudget features that I've watched.
Getting a great script with a fresh story idea is key to your future career as a filmmaker and key to making the best film possible. Don't miss this free training!
