Winners Announced

Feb 11, 2015

Omaha Film Festival

CONTEST DESCRIPTION

During the OFF we now do a Writers Theatre aspect of our screenplay competition, which means we have local actors read sections of the screenplays that are finalists to an audience. It is a great experience for the screenwriters who can attend the festival to experience it.

PRIZES

Prizes will be announced later this year. They typically include software, Oakley sunglasses, and for local writers: a free admission to Lew Hunter's Screenwriting Colony.

 

All finalists though are included in the Writers Theatre!

Feedback Type Description

ISA Introductory Feedback (1-2 Pages)

So much of the opportunity available to your script is spent within the first twenty pages. You need to make sure the hook, teaser, cold open… grabs the reader and presents you like it should. This analysis will give you those answers.

ISA General Feedback (2-3 Pages)

You know your work inside and out, now it’s time to get a second opinion. We’ll read your full script, and you’ll receive a detailed personalized critique on what we see, what we think, and suggestions on where to go next.

ISA Extended Feedback (5-6 Pages)

For those looking for an extensive breakdown of the inner-workings of their creative material. Writers who select this Analysis will receive suggestions on how to improve overall writing, story, structure, characters, pacing, stakes, climax and resolution, specific problem scenes, tone and overall commercial appeal.
