Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers

Writers don’t write scripts to sit on a shelf along with their dusty plastic trophies.  Writers write scripts to see their Movies on the silver screen. aims to facilitate the writer’s dream of seeing your Movie made in two ways:  

1)  We offer an exclusive script database that is searchable only by active Development Executives. (Your first script submission is free, BTW)

2)  We host the best indie screenplay competition out there:  Our Winners actually MAKE A MOVIE.  (Up to $500k budget, and the competition is limited!)

At you have a REAL shot at making YOUR MOVIE.


Make YOUR Movie Contest on!

Project Greenlight Reincarnated!  Our winners make a MOVIE.

"In Hollywood a script has a One in a Million chance at being produced. That sucks!

At your script has a REAL chance at being made into a MOVIE! That does NOT suck!"

Dear Screenwriters and Filmmakers,

Let's face it.  We all just want to make movies.  Ever since we could remember.  We were kids with movie cameras making goofy projects with our friends.  And we were happy.  Fulfilled.  Well, now that we're "all grown up", that desire is still there, but how are we ever going to get the funding?!  It almost takes a miracle.

My Partner and I have decided to keep that dream alive.  For everyone who's had a script or short film place high in a contest, but was left with nothing but a trophy or some nominal prize money, we have your solution.  WE MAKE MOVIES.  That's what we all want, right?

Here's the skinny: 

•  Our team has worked on over 70 films collectively ranging from $250k - $80 million. 
•  We produce the winning feature script - you get a real movie made (up to $500K).

•  Our other prizes include: Screenplay, Storyboarding, Budgeting and Scheduling Software; Educational Materials and Books; One-on-one screenplay consulting; Production Equipment.
•  We also have an exclusive Development Database for feature scripts - one script upload is FREE.

Here are the important dates:

  • Early Bird Submission fee $100 until Nov. 1, 2013
  • Regular Submission fee $125 from Nov. 2 - Dec. 31, 2013
  • Late Submission fee $150 from Jan. 1, 2014 - final deadline of Feb. 28, 2014

Whether or not you enter our YouWin contest, I invite you to upload one of your scripts or short films into our database for free.  Our Development Executive roster is by invite only, and only active Producers are allowed to search our site.  My partner and I have a combined 40 years of film production experience - we know how to get movies made.  We are excited about our new paradigm for indie film incubation, and look forward to reading your scripts and watching your films.
Please visit our website at and register for FREE to learn more.

Best of luck to you and your career!

Why YouPix? 

The idea of was born out of our frustrations with the current state of the Indie Film business model. Over the last decade there has been a decline  in Indie Films investment by major Hollywood production companies.  The decline is due to many reasons, but the most importantly, the old business model DOES NOT WORK!  The vast majority of the Indie Films do not make money – so why invest?  Too much risk.

If you are a passionate Indie Filmmaker – finding the money to make your film is almost impossible.  Unless your rich Aunt invented bubble gum, odds are you’re not going to make your movie.  YouPix is the answer.

The basic idea behind the YouPix competition:


  • Writers submit scripts with a SUBMISSION FEE.
  • Writers read & fairly critique 2 SCRIPTS and 2 SHORT FILMS.
  • Writers receive multiple critiques – from fellow Writers and from Directors.
  • TOP SCRIPTS are submitted to an ADVISORY BOARD of established Directors, Writers, Producers, and Industry Luminaries for final analysis and judging.
  • The CHOSEN SCRIPT is PRODUCED by teaming up with the CHOSEN DIRECTOR for Production.



  • Directors submit short films (no longer than 20 min.) with a SUBMISSION FEE.
  • TOP SHORT FILMS are submitted to an ADVISORY BOARD of established Directors, Writers, Producers, Producers, and Industry Luminaries for analysis and judging.
  • TOP 10 DIRECTORS are interviewed by the ADVISORY BOARD for FINAL CUT.



A SCRIPT in HOLLYWOOD has about a ONE IN A MILLION chance of being produced.


At YOU have a REAL shot at making YOUR FILM.

That does NOT suck!

At here’s what can happen for you:

  • You get multiple SCRIPT COVERAGE and FEEDBACK by your PEERS…
  • If you’re in the Top 100 or Top 10 Scripts or Short Films - you’ll get noticed in Hollywood…
