Dear Filmmakers, Screenwriters, and hopefuls:

We're thrilled to announce the return of GET IT MADE – an opportunity that goes beyond just scripts and pitches; it's a chance to create, and turn your cinematic fantasy into a working project. 

Presented by CenterFrame, this is an earnest invitation for writers, producers, and directors to join a community where creative sparks ignite and stories come to life.

CRAFTING STORIES, NURTURING TALENT, BUILDING COMMUNITY

GET IT MADE Overview:

GET IT MADE is not your typical script competition; it's a dynamic platform that brings together writers, producers, and directors in a quest to bring short films to life

Teams formed through the competition will recieve mentorship by experienced filmmakers in the GET IT MADE Development Lab, to refine their projects for the Pitch Competition. 

The two winning teams will each receive £5,000 and support from CenterFrame’s Production Arm to bring their short films to fruition, and get it into festivals.

CENTERFRAME'S COMMITMENT:

At the heart of CenterFrame's mission is the dedication to nurturing talent and building a supportive creative community. Shortlisted teams will receive mentorship from experienced filmmakers, and an opportunity to develop their projects with the support of the CenterFrame community.

Development Lab and Pitch Competition:

Once the teams have been formed and declared, mentors – an industry veteran and past GET IT MADE winners – join the fray. With their guidance, the teams will have two months to develop the script, leading to the creation of a compelling pitch deck and video to captivate the CenterFrame community.

The Pitch-off:

At the end of the two-month development lab, the GET IT MADE Panel will shortlist the 10 best projects, and the CenterFrame Community will decide the two winners through aranked vote.

The two winning Project Teams will each receive £5,000, plus backing and support from CenterFrame’s Production Arm (who will come on board as exec-producers). They’ll also get access to sponsored camera and lighting packages, a sponsored post package, 1-year PRO CenterFrame membership for the writer, director, and producer, and automatic eligibility for CenterFrame Awards in November.

And for the remaining 8 Shortlisted Teams:

So, dear filmmakers and writers: the stage is set, the invitation extended.
