One Page Script

11th May 2007 by Maura McHugh

The New Media Factory is running a one-page script competition open to anyone living in the border region (Antrim, Armagh, Down, Louth, Meath and Monaghan). The top 5 scripts will go into production at the end of July 2007.

The challenge is to capture and condense all the elements that make film such a popular medium into only one page.

The script must consist of two and characters: One male and one female. These characters must be racially and physically open to interpretation. If a story is unreasonably expensive to produce it may be rejected. The five most compelling stories will be selected.

The deadline for entries is 29 June 2007.
