I’ve had my fair share of successes with multiple competitions, but none quite like the Launch Pad. The speed in which my work was noticed by important players was really remarkable. Within days of my initial placements in the competition, I was speaking with representation. I couldn’t be happier with my Launch Pad experience.
Without a doubt my placement with Launch Pad was the biggest catalyst for my signing... After I placed in the Top 50 of the Launch Pad Feature Competition, my now manager read my script and Launch Pad connected us when he requested an introduction.
My now manager was one of the judges of the Launch Pad Pilot competition that I was fortunate enough to place as the overall winner in. Launch Pad connected us after he requested an introduction, we had a couple of great calls, and both felt that it was a good fit. After everything, it was really as simple as that!
The exposure from being in this competition has been a great boost for me, personally and professionally. Because your competition is judged by managers and agents, I was able to get noticed and repped by people who are excited about my writing. So yeah, I’d say my experience with Launch Pad was pretty amazing.
When I first entered, I was a college student who couldn’t get anyone to read my script. Now after winning Launch Pad, I have connected with so many amazing people who share the same passions as me and want to make my visions a reality. It has been a surreal experience, and I am so fortunate. Even when my script first made the Top 100, people in the industry already started reaching out to me.
The team at Launch Pad has gone above and beyond in promoting my work after it placed in the Top 10 of their feature competition. Launch Pad set up several introductions with managers and because of that I was able to land representation with a phenomenal management company, Gravity Squared Entertainment. This is what has so impressed me with Launch Pad. They don't promise money. They promise access to industry professionals who can advance your career. And that is exactly what they delivered.
