Filmocracy is looking for both up-and-coming and accomplished screenwriters based in LA who want to gain exposure and show off their talent to the filmmaking community!

- Contestants will have 1 hour to write a short scene based on a prompt to be provided at the beginning of the event. The audience members will be observing the writers write while chatting amongst themselves.

- Each contestant will be seated at a featured position and their screens will be projected as they embark on their writing process.

- Everyone else will be witnessing the creative process unfold amongst the contestants!

- Once the hour is over, the judges and audience will vote for the top 3 scripts and then we'll launch into our table read with our panel of actors to perform a table read of the scenes.

- Once all of the scenes have been presented, attendees and judges will be asked to vote on their favorites to decide on a winner!

    This was a fantastic opportunity and real challenge!! The Filmocracy staff were very helpful in showing the platform and ensuring everyone was able to access it. Highly recommend the opportunity to any writer willing to face down the nerves of writing 3 pages in less than 1 hour!
