The 4th Annual First Look Project fulfills the requests of major studios, leading Hollywood production companies, and agencies by finding high-concept material across four main categories:
  • Screenplays (Action/Adventure, Comedy, Horror/Thriller, Sci-fi/Fantasy)
  • Teleplays
  • Adaptations

Supported by Energy Entertainment, Benderspink, Darko Entertainment, Lakeshore Entertainment, and Paradigm, the competition presents the best scripts and ideas to major companies. One winner in each category receives personal development assistance from Script Pipeline’s executive team, followed by meetings to discuss potential production. We will also select up to 5 finalists in each category. Unlike Script Pipeline’s other writing competitions, entries for First Look must be considered “studio-level.” The originality of the concept, writing ability, and a stellar understanding of genre and the marketplace will take precedence.

Over the past 15 years, numerous Script Pipeline contest alumni have found elite representation and gained crucial introductions to otherwise impossible-to-reach execs. The result: over $5 million in specs sold from Pipeline competition finalists and “Recommend” writers since 2003.


Our intent with The First Look Project is to circulate exceptional material to studios, support our writers in the long-term, and help launch careers.
