The High School 48 Short Script Project is simple:

We give you an assigned film genre—and a required character, prop and line of dialogue—and you have 48 hours to write a script.



  • All writing must happen during the 48-hour Project Weekend

  • All writing must be original

  • The maximum length is 10 pages  (Hollywood rule of thumb: 1 page of script = 1 minute of film)                             

  • The competition happens on the weekend of April 17-19, 2020.

  • You must register by April 16, 2020, to participate.

  • First Prize: $250 and a copy of Movie Magic Screenwriter Software
