If you have downloaded a script from this website to make, you are on the wrong page. This is the correct page HERE.

Step One

Read the rules and guidelines so you understand the whole project. You are making a film based on a two page script or less, though the running time can be more or less than two minutes. We will make the best film possible out of the submitted films.

 

Step Two

Make your film. Pay particular attention to our guidelines, keep all your footage safe and also the projects you create when editing. We may go back to your source material for the final film. Remember you MUST use our cast and crew contracts and we will need all of them signed when you submit. If you fail to do this your film will be removed from the process as it is needed for sales and distribution. No exceptions. Downloads below. We will also need a screenwriter contract which we will send you a link for after you submit your film.

Step Three

Pay the PayPal submission fee of £20.00 which you can do below. Click the red button or follow this link HERE.

 

NOTE we update the site on Wednesdays, so your Film will not appear until the following Wednesday.

Step Four

Upload your film and send us all the details. We have an upload form HERE that you can fill out. Use Vimeo for the video link. We will also ask for details about your production team, crew and cast, as well as ask for production photos. You will need to submit all cast and crew contracts at this stage and make sure you fully own all rights to any music used. We will then check your submission and upload to the website. Filmmakers and writers will then offer feedback on your film.

 

Step Five

Re-edit, re-mix, even reshoot. This is your chance to take the feedback and improve your film. You can do this twice after your main submission. Remember to watch other films too and offer feedback. Send vicky@create50.com the updated link to a NEW Vimeo upload. Do not remove your earlier edit(s). We will then upload the new edit to the site.

 

Step Six

Tell all your friends and family about the film and ask them to look at it and leave feedback. Share the experience on Social Media channels and use the #Impact50 hashtag. This is hugely important. Feel free to post the link to your film on this site on Facebook and other channels too.

 

Step Seven

Write us a blog entry about your experience. Not obligatory but does help platform YOUR talent and the whole project. You can read the News and Blog HERE and get a feel for what others are doing. Send blog entries to vicky@create50.com and remember photos, your name and links at the end of the piece and give it a title.

 

Step Eight

We will see you on the red carpet at the world premiere!
