SeriesFest is thrilled to partner once again with Elysium Bandini Studios to discover creative, fresh writers as part of our Storytellers Initiative. What excites us most for Season 5 is the opportunity to explore short form series with a strong point of view and bold characters. In order to qualify, interested writers are encouraged to submit pilot scripts with episodes running less than 15 minutes (minimum 15 - maximum 20 pages) and a series bible. The scripts entered into this competition must be short form pilot episodes not exceeding 15 minutes. If the pilot episode is under 15 pages, writers must submit subsequent episodes to reach a total minimum of 15 pages. Entries must also include a Series bible, 3-15 pages - including Logline, Pilot Summary, Character Breakdown, and at least six future episode synopsis. Writers of the winning project, announced in May, will receive an exclusive first look development deal with Elysium Bandini Studios, a professionally produced pilot presentation, and will participate in a“Storytellers Initiative” live read event at SeriesFest: Season 5. Finalists will be flown out to Los Angeles where they will participate in a two-day lab including creative workshops with established industry professionals. Less
