This year’s Launch Pad Feature Competition is not only the latest competition to launch, but it is the largest competition we’ve ever done. With our inaugural manuscript competition already featuring exclusive partnerships with Ridley Scott, Energy Entertainment and Inkshares, we knew we wanted to be sure we were providing that same level of exclusive opportunity those entrusting their work with the Launch Pad brand have come to expect with this competition. And, we’re happy to say we believe we’ve done just that by finalizing an exclusive partnership with Roy Lee’s Vertigo Entertainment, Jeremy Garelick’s Twin Padres Entertainment, Bellevue Productions and ESA Agency. With this new round of partners we’ve not only provided multiple guaranteed buying outlets from some of the biggest producers in town, but we’ve also secured guaranteed signings from one of the fastest growing representation homes in Hollywood.
With the producing/creative teams behind projects such as The Lego Movie, The Hangover, The Departed, The Wedding Ringer, The Grudge, and the upcoming Baywatch film onboard to each pick up a minimum of one project apiece, we’ve immediately added two career jumpstarting opportunities. But, by adding the agents who represent the writers behind projects such as Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Black Sails, we’ve added two more exclusive opportunities to not only kickoff your career, but to find a team that is there to help you guide it into the future.
But, we didn’t stop there. This year we’re also offering every single entrant a free two-week long seminar with the Roadmap Writers Program. Teaming up with the Launch Pad team, Roadmap Writers has curated an exclusive experience for writers of all levels to interact with producers, executives, agents, and managers to help you build a better pitch, learn how to be good in a room, and how to be sure you’re putting your best work into the world.
As we’ve said since the beginning, we’re not interested in simply being a screenwriting competition; we’re interested in being the first step in starting your writing career.
