99% OF SCRIPTS NEVER GET MADE.
Most scripts never get read by more than a handful of people. Even studio-commissioned and contest-winning screenplays very rarely get 'produced'.
WE WILL MAKE YOUR SCRIPT A REAL COMIC.
This contest is different. Winners get their scripts made into comic books or graphic novels and published by Scout Comics one of the top indie comic labels.
NOT JUST PUBLISHED. OPTIONED.
These comic properties will be optioned by leading Hollywood production companies and read by top industry producers, agents, managers and financiers.
