Second Stage of Micro Movie Lab Competition Begins

The Movie Mogul Fund 'Micro Movie Lab' competition to create a user-generated feature is about to enter its second phase entitled 'The Writer's Brief'.
The winning 25-word movie pitch from the first round will be announced on the MMF website on July 2.
Budding screenwriters then have until July 31 to devise and submit their two-page movie outline, incorporating the title, genre and essence of the winning pitch.
Subject to members voting throughout August, the top ten ranking ideas then go before a Jury Panel consisting of industry professionals; Huw Penallt Jones from Capitol Films, Ed Thomas from the Fiction Factory, Mark Sandell from Trinity Filmed Entertainment, Olivier Lauchenauer from Pogo Films and John Shackleton of Movie Mogul Ltd.
The Writer's Brief main prizes are the Jury Award - a £500 screenwriting commission, a share in the film's profits and one year's NPA membership (worth £85); the Members Award, which is £200 and a year's NPA membership; and a runner-up prize of £50.
Further rounds include an open Director and Producer's call, to bring the vision to life. The production budget of £100,000 will be raised by members of the website purchasing affordable units at £4.95 each.
All winners and unit holders will share in the film's profits and own it jointly.
The film aims to go into production towards the end of the year, under the supervision of participating Jury members,
