What's it
all about?

HOW MANY GREAT UNTOLD STORIES ARE OUT THERE? JAMESON FIRST SHOT WANTS TO PROVIDE A PLATFORM FOR BURGEONING FILMMAKERS WHO HAVE A VISION AND A VOICE, BUT DON’T HAVE THE BENEFIT OF AN INFLUENTIAL UNCLE IN THE MOVIE BUSINESS.

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.
