We all like to travel, right? As creators, there's something inherently inspiring about exploring unfamiliar territory. Dudes like Fellini and Truffaut owe some of their greatest creations to the sights and sounds of a foreign place.
You may not have the dough to afford an extravagant vacation at the moment, but you can indulge your passion for far-flung locales by submitting a travel-inspired screenplay to the Four Stories film competition. I'm pumped to announce that I, along with the one and only Roman Coppola, will be on the panel of judges for this awesome contest. We'll be selecting three screenplays that will be produced by Roman's filmmaking company, The Directors Bureau, at one of four W Hotels destinations worldwide. This is a HUGE opportunity, you guys!
To qualify, your 10 minute screenplay must be set in a W Hotel and needs to feature one of those sleek new Ultrabook laptops as a central prop. See the full contest details right here. Submissions close on 8/30, so get moving! I can't wait to see what you come up with.
