Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Adrien Brody Jameson First Shot 2015 The email alert for the opening of the fourth Jameson First Shot Film Competition unfortunately fell behind the back of the sofa, only going through my emails this week did I re-discover it. So it's a bit late but the Jameson First Shot Short Film 2015 Competition 2015 is definitely now open.

Jameson and Trigger Street Productions the team behind films like The Social Network and Captain Phillips are on the hunt for new talent and want to give you a First Shot at making your dreams come true and break into filmmaking.

"With a little help from Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti, three writers/directors will be selected to have their scripts made into short films by the award-winning Trigger Street Productions.

The Hollywood treatment doesn’t end there, as you will also have the life-changing opportunity to direct Oscar-winning star Adrien Brody.

Not bad for a first shot."

Last years three lucky winners had the privilege of directing the diversely talented star of cult classics such as Pulp fiction and Kill Bill in their very own short films. With Henco J from South Africa taking the crown for his The Mundane Goddess.

The brief is simple:

"Applicants must be at least 25 years old and living in South Africa, Russia, the US, UK, Ireland, India, Australia and Canada. Submissions should be no more than 7 A4 pages and your story should reveal, with a lightness of touch, the epic that is to be found in everyday experiences."

1. Create your script
2. Register your details
3. Upload your script

The closing date for entries is 1st February 2015 (17:00 GMT), so get cracking!


In partnership with Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti of Trigger Street Productions, Jameson is on the hunt for the globe’s most gifted, undiscovered filmmakers with compelling stories to tell. Three talented winners will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have their scripts turned into short films and to direct Adrien Brody in the lead role. The winning shorts will be premiered in LA with the acclaimed team in attendance.

At the heart of the Jameson First Shot competition is the knowledge that for the wealth of filmmaking talent out there, getting a first shot in the industry is notoriously difficult. It is this insight that has compelled Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey and Trigger Street Production President/Producer, Dana Brunetti to champion the project since 2010.

Knowing just how difficult it is to get a break in the industry, Kevin Spacey sees it as his duty to help young talent: ‘If you’ve been successful at the career you wanted to have, it’s your obligation to spend a good portion of your time sending the elevator back down.’ The Jameson First Shot team are harnessing their collective power to do just this. Dana Brunetti, a world-class producer who will be making the winners’ films with his experienced crew, concurs: ‘Any time you can open a path for people who actually have talent to demonstrate’ says Brunetti ‘it’s a wonderful thing. Hollywood doesn’t have a monopoly on talent’

Adrien Brody will play the lead in this year’s winning films. His own journey from unknown actor to Oscar-winner was far from easy, making him a natural match for the competition. ‘Jameson First Shot affords talented writer/directors an important gift’ affirms Brody, ‘the confidence to exercise fearlessness and the opportunity to materialise their dreams’.
