This last fellowship campaign was the strongest we’d have to date. It’s not only encouraging that we get to develop and work with some amazing talent, but it’s also affirming that great screenwriters are gravitating towards the Scriptmatix platform and fellowships and see the value we provide is second to none.
Before the fellowship began, we decided to bring as many as 3 screenwriters into the fellowship. This season we are bringing on 5! If you joined the Virtual Festival, you’re aware that our metrics show that the unrepresented writers we are discovering are just as skilled as the pool of represented screenwriters. We encourage all screenwriters to join our network and grow something special here.
The winners that will enter our development room and earn representation in the marketplace include:
Kranti Pally, Lee Redmond, Mark Reynolds, Alex Jiang, Joseph Stephen Meadows. Each of these writers exhibited considerable skill and will be taken into a 3-month development process where their next developments will take place with a team of professionals huddled around their success.
The finalists are all strong writers who spark intrigue. These scripts were scored well and reviewed by heads of development and literary reps in our network. We scheduled meetings with many of the writers on this list and considered them for the win. A big congrats to the following for standing out from this season’s great pool of talent!
