Yarışma Özeti

One - two pages treatment for a short film. The idea will be provided. It needs to be developed in terms of structure - beginning, turning point, second act, second turning point, final act - basic Hollywood screenwriting structure. Characters might be added, or modified in order to make the story flow smother, and more efficient.
In order to participate in this competition, an applicant needs to submit a sample of writing to illustrate qualification. It can be in a form of 10 pages of a feature script, a short film script (no longer than 10 pages), a treatment for a feature.

Genre - drama.
Time - our days.
Place - Russia/USA (USA could be switched to another foreign country).
Main characters - middle aged woman (30-40s), Caucasian. A child - boy or girl, 5 to 7 years old.
Theme - adoption.
RT - from 7 up to 20 minutes.
Language - English, Russian.
The document needs to be in a standard screenwriting format (in the Word or PDF file).

Three re-writes might be done during the competition based on our comments. In the process of competition I won't give a full coverage. You will have to work with comments.

This is the first step of the competition. The winner may be contracted to write the screenplay. The budget of a screenplay (NOT a treatment) is up to $300.
If the winner is contracted to write a screenplay then he will get the credit. Otherwise, if we decide to finish the project with the treatment only, it is considered as ghostwriting and you won't get a credit for it.

Good luck!

      Hi, Alexander - is this note to me? Because I DID submit several days ago, finally converted my entry to a format that Freelancer would accept. I also had marked to keep it sealed/private, but that's not the case and I don't understand why. I also sent it to you via chat & email....so you should definitely have it. If not, please advise. Thank you, Cheryl (It's called "Margin for Error")

    You can provide the treatment along with the required "sample of writing to illustrate qualification. It can be in a form of 10 pages of a feature script, a short film script (no longer than 10 pages), a treatment for a feature". This will make a process clear and easy. Thanks!

    United States. Our days.
    Jane Dawson – a single mother, is being prosecuted for a death of her son whom she adopted a year ago in Russia. After hearing arguments from both sides the jury announce their verdict but – did they make the right decision? Do we really know what happened? We have one last chance to learn the truth.

    To keep it simple for myself (and for the host of this competition), can the writing sample be a brief exposition of the treatment?
