Sean Collins-Smith

After placing as the one hour runner up in the 2019 ScreenCraft Pilot Launch TV Script Contest LOST IN THE FLOOD, Sean Collins-Smith signed with manager, Luke Maxwell, at 3 Arts Entertainment after being introduced by the ScreenCraft team.

“I can say, with 100% honesty, that my entire life changed after winning. Before winning, I was in Richmond, Virginia. Next thing I knew, I was taking generals at all these companies I would’ve never dreamed of stepping foot into – Bad Robot, Scott Free, Appian Way. None of that would’ve happened without winning. Now that I’ve signed with 3Arts, I can safely say that wouldn’t have happened without screenwriting contests.” – Sean Collins-Smith

Kevin Bachar

ScreenCraft winner Kevin Bachar has signed with literary manager Matthew Koss of Zero Gravity Management. Kevin won the 2018 Action Screenplay Competition with his feature EDISON’S GHOST.

“After winning, I immediately got meetings at Bad Robot and Donner Productions, which is pretty damn amazing! Winning ScreenCraft’s Action/Thriller genre was amazing and set me on a pretty wild ride that’s led me to gaining a literary manager at Zero Gravity. But the coolest thing was that one of the judges for the contest was Steven De Souza, the writer of DIE HARD. That means he read my work, and thought it was worthy of winning the top spot. Let me write that again – the screenwriter of DIE HARD read my script and liked it!!!! That’s why you enter a contest – Yippy-ki-yay-mother%&*#er!” – Kevin Bachar

Nicole Cohen

After placing as a winner in the ScreenCraft Sci-fi & Fantasy Competition with her feature screenplay ARTEMIS 1, Nicole Cohen signed with Christine Coggins of Heroes & Villains Entertainment.

“This is my first script, so I was brand new! I’d always wanted to write, but hadn’t put myself out there yet. So taking the step to open my work up to contests was a vulnerable one. I was nervous but every round of feedback and round announcement when I progressed was exciting. I’ll never forget the call when I found out I won 2nd place! My kids swarmed me in a hug, they were so proud! I’m glad they saw my try for something new and succeed. After winning, I grew confidence and a thicker skin. I spoke with a producer from my jury who was generous and encouraging, and found my manager whom I adore, as well as the producers who are developing my script into a feature. It is truly a lifelong dream realized. My advice: Do it. Put yourself out there. It is NEVER too late. Share your work, take the feedback, make it better. No one can ever stop you if you just keep going. But if you never start, you’re stopping yourself.

I’d recommend ScreenCraft to anyone to hone their skills, work on receiving feedback, and finding support and connections in the industry. The ScreenCraft staff and judges are amazingly kind, and their website and emails are a great source of education. What a precious resource for screenwriters starting in the industry!” – Nicole Cohen, screenwriter based in Virginia, USA

After gaining notoriety through the ScreenCraft competition, I gained much more confidence in my work. After winning ScreenCraft, I had people championing my work and creating opportunities that had been unattainable before. It led me to write more and be calm and collected in the meetings that came out of it.” – Georgina Love

After placing as a finalist, I got the confidence boost I was looking for. A member of the ScreenCraft team knew a manager who he thought would like my work and made the introduction. It was that easy. I would tell anyone on the fence about submitting to go for it. ScreenCraft has gone out of their way to give me advice and help me sign with a rep!” – Zoe Vitale

Lucy Luna

2019 ScreenCraft Fellowship Winner, Lucy Luna, signed with manager Kailey Marsh of Brillstein Entertainment Partners via an introduction by the ScreenCraft team and was subsequently staffed in a Warner Bros TV writers room.
“Before entering the ScreenCraft Fellowship, I was trying to figure out how to navigate the industry, my needs and wants as a writer, and what next step would be the best or smartest thing I could do for my career. Before ScreenCraft I was listening to so many opinions, and I realized I had no real specific direction because all the advice was great but were so different, and were not tailor-made for me. After winning, everything changed. Everything became clear. I knew what I wanted and needed and knew what next steps to take. There are so many contests out there and it can get scary. I get it: I’m afraid to go back and see how much money I spent on competitions that were not worth it. ScreenCraft isn’t one of them. ScreenCraft cares. They are proactive, supportive, and are willing to push hard for you. They have the connections and the passion. They listen. They immediately understood where I wanted to go, and what I needed and they worked with me as if my dream was theirs. They are my guardian angels!” – Lucy Luna

“I swear I’m not just saying this because it’s going on the website, but there is no way I would have found my agent the way I did were it not for ScreenCraft. It was an honor all its own to be named runner-up for their new stage play contest, but the way they went to bat for me and championed my work following the contest was incredible. ScreenCraft got my play in front of some of my writing heroes who were judges for the contest, and just a few months later I’d signed with my agent at WME. Prior to ScreenCraft, I honestly had no idea how to even approach an agent. Their resources and guidance helped me reach the next level and I’m extremely grateful. ” – Doug Williams

ScreenCraft connected me with the production company. Within the next couple of weeks – I had sold my horror script and it went into production this year with an exciting new company. To have people like The ScreenCraft team actively getting my work into the hands of the right people is a testament to ScreenCraft wanting writers to succeed. If you’re a thinking of submitting a script into a competition, then ScreenCraft is one I would highly recommend. Not only for how they can change your life as a screenwriter— but because of the people on their team.” – Danny Matier

Burning for a chance to get my writing out there, I feel tremendous gratitude for ScreenCraft’s dedication.” – Gabe Cruz

My book, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, was a finalist in the ScreenCraft Cinematic Book Competition this year. I posted about it on social media and a friend of mine saw the post. Once he saw I was a finalist in your competition, it caused him to look more deeply into my work and we began to talk about whether we could work on this project together. These conversations led to something I never expected—a full-time job offer that combines my business experience and creative work, and gives me the chance to develop my own intellectual property as well as scout for the latest and greatest stories that matter. Thank you so much for the visibility you give to writers. It made a huge difference in my life and I’m so grateful!”

“As a character actor I was used to adapting to various tones and worlds, so when it came to writing I truly didn’t know what kind of writer I was. I hadn’t found “my voice,” and so many types of stories interested me as a writer. So I started using ScreenCraft as my own personal development program by utilizing each contest as a self-imposed deadline to explore writing in different genres and formats, simply as a learning experience. I was submitting early drafts to the contests for the feedback, and to get a gage of how far I had to go. It’s easy to work in a bubble, but the subjective opinions of the readers became a fantastic tool. Watching my scores increase with each submission was a great source of encouragement, and motivation! Eventually I wrote a script that was reflective of what I now consider to be “my voice.” It spoke to Tom in particular, and he contacted me to say that ScreenCraft would like to help connect me with a manager. I was floored. I hadn’t won a contest but I had consistently been submitting a growing body of work. Soon we were sitting down and brainstorming who to put on the wish list for representation! Tom was so incredibly knowledgeable, a talented filmmaker himself, who was acting like my guidance counselor helping me apply to and choose the right college. This was such an exciting time and he was so incredibly attentive. I kept thinking, “how lucky am I!?” Here I was just do’n my thing, in my bubble, and this fellow artist I have so much respect for, is helping ME get to this very important step that can be so hard to access on your own. Sometimes it does take a village. I’m so very grateful that ScreenCraft has been an essential part of mine.” – Tate Hanyok
