Moviestorm isn’t just for aspiring or amateur directors. It’s a tool that can be used by people in many different roles in the film business. As Matt commented earlier this week on the Going Down Writing blog, it can be a great tool for writers too. It can help you see your movie, and start to think more like an editor or director: you start to focus your writing not just on the dialog, but on what the viewer sees and hears. It’ll also help you write more natural dialog, rather than stagey prose that doesn’t sound as good as it reads on the page.

That’s why we’re proud to support the Emerging Screenwriters 2010 Screenplay competition. We’re offering prizes to all top ten finalists, worth $1000 in total. Other prizes include cash, software, meetings with Hollywood producers, and screenwriting classes from ScreenwritingU, the leading online film writing school.

There are categories for both feature films and TV pilots. The contest simulates the typical production process, so the first stage involves submitting a logline for your script. That’s basically a one-sentence pitch that gets people excited and makes them want to see more. (Like these!)

There’s a small entry fee for the contest, and full contest rules are on their Web site.

Sounds awesome. I can send a blast/ email announcement via screenwritersdaily.com as well, and to some screenwriters I know.
