{THE LAUNCH PAD} 2014 TOP 10 FEATURES AND WRITERS!!

1

We are incredibly proud to announce the TOP 10 Features & Writers for our 2014 Launch Pad Features Competition (LPFC)!

It was another tough year when it came to picking the Top 10. When you have to pick the Top 25 from almost 100 qualifying scripts, you can only imagine the difficulties narrowing it down further. As always the quality of writing, storytelling, concepts and characters also went above and beyond as shown by one of our writers having sold their project to Paramount in less than a week of being announced! Watching fresh writers get recognized for their hard work and writing abilities is why we started this competition in the first place and we look forward to seeing many more of the writers below (as well as the rest of the Top 25 and the 15 honorable mentions) gain equal success in the future.
