Objective

The action genre is the one genre that producers and literary managers have recently requested the most, and which we have the least. So this could be one of our most successful competitions! Our jury is looking for emerging voices in the action movie genre. Whether you have a big-budget, tentpole family adventure movie, or a taut, low-budget action film, we want to read your script. Professional feedback from studio-trained readers is available on all entries.

Contest News

ScreenCraft Announces Action/Thriller Contest Results

ScreenCraft has announced THE ENEMY WITHIN by Ken Miyamoto as the grand prize winner of the 2014 ScreenCraft Action & Thriller Script Contest. It’s a fast-paced wrong man thriller with sharp character work that keeps the reader involved in the story and continually elevates the emotional stakes. Gritty and grounded, the script explores quintessential contemporary themes like personal versus national loyalty, how well we can ever truly know another person, counterterrorism doctrine and the perniciousness of fanatical terrorism.

The runner-up is THE NARROWS by Aaron Steven, with a story by Aaron Steven and Aaron Walker. A fact-based, pulpy and classically-inclined thriller, the script centers on an incredible alliance formed between the U.S. Navy and the Mafia to protect World War II-era New York City docks from a German incursion. The script has a fascinating and original hook, clever writing, and ample voice and craft. It deserves to be singled out, as do the rest of our finalists, culled from more than 700 submissions:

WESTGATE by James Leighton
SMOKE by K.E. Pragnell
DEPLOYABLE by Ben Powell
FORT KNOX by Ryan Chong
DAEDALUS by Gareth Peevers
PENANCE by David Linke & Kevin Linke
THE THIRD BOMB by Phillip Parker
THE NIGHT WITCHES by Steven Prowse

First place winner Ken Miyamoto will receive $2,000, a phone consultation with a top action movie producer, and a consultation with Miles Chapman, screenwriter of Escape Plan! Runner-up Aaron Steven will receive $200 and a phone consultation with a top literary manager. Additionally, both will receive a complimentary screenwriting software package from Celtx, and the top ten finalists will receive a page of development notes from one of our judges.
