Objective

Stage 32 Happy Writers is thrilled to bring you our biggest screenwriting opportunity yet in our second Stage 32 Happy Writers Annual Feature Contest. We are looking for the best undiscovered writers and scripts of 2015 to connect them directly with our industry insiders! As a result of our history with executives throughout the industry and the extent of our global reach, we are able to connect the top writers from around the world with leading executives who can make the critical difference in their career. We develop and champion our writers; our success stories speak for themselves and our executives agree, click here to see what they say about us.

This year alone FOX broke the box office record bringing in $5.5 billion worldwide. From BIRDMAN, UNDER THE SKIN, BOYHOOD to NIGHTCRAWLER, movies are constantly pushing the boundaries and bringing us new and memorable worlds, unique characters and adventures of all shapes and sizes. Films are one of, if not the the most powerful mediums the artistic universe has to offer. This contest is an opportunity for us to showcase incredible writers to the industry and help their voices be heard!

At Stage 32, we take access and exposure very seriously. To that end, we've lined up amazing opportunities for the top 10 writers of our feature contest. This year we will be flying out the top THREE Grand Prize winners of the Stage 32 Happy Writers Annual Feature Contest to Los Angeles! Each winner will meet with 10 executives from the top literary and production companies in the industry. Our previous winners have with managers, agents and development & production executives from Relativity, Revolver, Atlas Entertainment and Circle of Confusion to name a few. And, as if that isn't enough, the top three Grand Prize Winners will also get unlimited access to a Stage 32 Happy Writers team member who will continue to champion their work to our roster of executives for one year. Over 450 executives strong (many of them working exclusively with Stage 32), your Stage 32 Happy Writers team member will act as a gateway for you to gain access to the industry's leading companies and executives in Los Angeles, New York and London.

Our Second through Fifth Place Winners will also receive amazing opportunities including one-on-one meetings over Skype with our executives. An additional three Honorable Mentions will also receive a Stage 32 Happy Writers online pitch session with the executive of their choice and a free screenwriting class on the subject of their choice. All of the Second through Fifth Place and Honorable Mention Winners will have their loglines mailed directly to over 450 executives. That's right. Ten writers will place in this contest!

But that's not all. As we all know, screenwriting is an extremely subjective craft. Some very deserving scripts may make the finals but not move on. In this contest, that's OK. We're still creating opportunity by placing all our finalist's loglines on a special section of Stage 32 that only our 300+ executives can access. If any request your script, we will notify you and ask your permission to forward your work.

Our recent contest winners have been signed to Gersh, ICM, Paradigm, 3 Arts Entertainment and BenderSpink, have been staffed on an ABC series, and had their scripts picked up by companies like Atlas Entertainment and Level 1 Entertainment.
