Get It Made is an annual production-based screenwriting competition that provides opportunities for aspiring screenwriters worldwide to see their work produced at the highest level.

Last Season’s winning script “Across the Lake” by Cote Bellard was selected by David Sullivan, who starred opposite Will Arnett in the Netflix Original Series, Flaked. David was also in Argo, directed by Ben Affleck, the FX Original Series, Justified, and HBO's Sharp Objects, just to name a few… David is slated to direct “Across the Lake” and the film is gearing up to shoot in February 2022.

At Get It Made, we pair aspiring screenwriters and filmmakers with Industry Professionals to create Proof of Concept films. Our annual script competition helps foster the next generation of filmmakers & storytellers by offering a professional film production experience with working industry professionals and top brands. We help writers package their projects, whether it’s a full-length screenplay or TV pilot script, everything is made ready for sale to buyers and studios.

This season, the winning script will be selected and Directed by Giovani Lampassi. Giovani is known for his outstanding director of photography work on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”, “Veronica Mars”, and “Maple Worth Murders” as well as his Cinematography and Directing for ABC/Hulu’s “Home Economics” with Topher Grace, Caitlin McGee and Jimmy Tatro.

We’re super excited for Giovani to be directing the next winning project!

Unlike traditional screenplay contests, every winning script is ushered through script development, production, and final delivery. We’ll work with you to finalize your Proof of Concept script (if you don’t already have one written).

Our Proof of Concept script development is supported by an extensive network of creative relationships and championed by professional cinematographers, directors, set designers, sound recordists, actors, and all other key departments.

This professional collaborative process is what makes the quality of every film production industry standard. All production uses professional-grade camera systems, lighting equipment, and editing suites.

We are here to help you get produced. Happy Writing!

    I've always received quality comments from Get it Made judges that helped me hone my work. I eventually made their 2021 POC Annual Contest as a Finalist. I can only recommend this festival and will keep submitting my projects to them.
