Jameson Irish Whiskey
has launched a new short film competition: “Jameson First Shot” with actor Kevin Spacey and his company, Trigger Street Productions. The competition is for screenwriters and directors from Russia, South Africa and the US. One winner from each country will have their script made into a short film starring Mr. Spacey. Filmmakers may submit a script up to seven pages long to jamesonfirstshot.com. Inspired by the theme of a legendary, humorous or very tall tale, the shortlist will be judged by a team including Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti, President of Trigger Street Production. The nominees will then go through to the next round, where they will show their directing skills by shooting a scene supplied by Trigger Street. One winner from each country will fly to LA to shoot and direct their script. The final three films will be voted on by the public to decide the overall winner.
