The High School
48-Hour Script Writing

The Short Script Project challenges you to write a script for a short film.  The maximum length of the script is 10 pages. What’s the catch? You only have 48 hours to do it. 

We provide you with scriptwriting tips and tutorials to help you write your script. On the Friday night of the competition weekend, you will receive your assignment: a genre, a character, a prop and a line of dialogue that you must work into your story. Then you have 48 hours to write your script.


First prize is a $250 and a copy of Movie Magic Screenwriter Software.​
