Pigasus Pictures, a movie production company based out of Bloomington, is giving high school students all across Indiana a chance to live out their movie making dreams with a contest they call, Project Pigasus.

The competition, now in it's third year, is open to students in 9th through 12th grade, with the winning screenplay having their vision turned into an actual short film! The finished project will be shown "before select in-state screenings of Pigasus Pictures' feature films and will subsequently be sold online with all proceeds benefiting artistic endeavors for the young artists."

Entries are being accepted now through the Project Pigasus website, and must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Be less than 12 pages
  • Be properly formatted (just Google it)
  • Be set in the Present day (No poodle skirts or cowboy chaps)
  • Not require computer graphics
  • Not include nudity or otherwise explicit material
  • Not display extreme violence
  • Be capable of filming in your town
  • Be submitted by January 18, 2019

Pigasus also asks that scripts be in the PDF file format, and include a brief description of your vision for the movie, as well as a video link (Youtube or Vimeo) introducing yourself. Good luck!
