Script Pipeline Contest Winner Sells Spec for $3 Million

After introductions by Script Pipeline to industry partner Jake Wagner, Evan Daugherty sold Snow White & the Huntsman to Universal for $3 million. It marked one of the biggest studio spec sales in years and subsequently made Evan one of the hottest young writers in the industry. The film was released summer 2012 and grossed over $400 million worldwide.

Script Pipeline’s criteria is based primarily on the overall originality and marketability of the concept.

Although we’re known to be strict on judging, all types of genres,
styles, and premises are accepted. In the past, winning and
finalist ideas have ranged from lower-budget indies, to animation, to
true stories, as well as all types of genres. Literally anything is fair
game–come up with something highly unique, or a fresh twist on an old
concept, and you’ll have an excellent shot at getting selected.

Industry contacts reviewing finalist pitches include:

  • Tripp Vinson (Vinson Films) – Journey to the Center of the EarthThe Rite
  • Jake Wagner (Benderspink)
  • Michael McKay (Lakeshore Entertainment)
  • David Boxerbaum (Paradigm)
  • Brooklyn Weaver (Energy Entertainment) – Extant
  • Sean McKittrick (Darko Entertainment) – Donnie DarkoBad Words

For other industry execs interested in judging for the Script Pipeline competitions, or email We will only consider applicants who are active producers, agents, managers, or directors.

Written or video submissions accepted.

For written pitches:

  • Anything from a two-sentence logline to a 3-5 page
    treatment–entirely up to you on how to best present your idea. We don’t
    judge on format, we judge on the idea itself. Extended treatments and
    supplemental materials (illustrations, etc.) are also accepted. Please
    do not send full-length screenplays–summaries ONLY. Pitches may be
    emailed direct.
  • Longer submissions are judged on the SAME criteria as short ones, so whatever length you think is best.

For video pitches:

  • Submit a link to the video after registration through email. We
    prefer a private link on YouTube, Vimeo, or any other video hosting
    site, or your personal website.
  • Videos can be any length, but remember, shorter is typically better. No short films (or for that matter, features).

General rules:

  • Concept MUST be for a feature-length film. Ideas for TV pilots,
    novels, short stories, and any other creative medium are not accepted.
  • It is highly advised that you register your concept with the WGA
    prior to submitting, however it is not required. Script Pipeline will
    not share your idea with anyone unless you’re chosen as a finalist and
    give us explicit permission to do so.
  • Previous Script Pipeline writers (Recommends, contest finalists,
    etc.) and former Great Movie Idea entrants are welcome to submit.
  • Goes without saying, but the concept must be WHOLLY ORIGINAL and not
    based on an existing franchise. In other words, don’t send us the next Batman installment. Come up with your own epic story.
