Orb Media Group and ScreenCraft Launch 2017
China-Hollywood Screenwriting Fellowship, Offering $13,000 Option Agreements to all Winning Writers

Beijing, China – December 12, 2016 - US-China film production company Orb Media Group, and ScreenCraft Media have announced the launch of the inaugural Orb Media China-Hollywood Screenwriting Fellowship.

Special advisors for this year’s program include producers familiar with international Chinese co-productions: Arthur Sarkissian (RUSH HOUR 1, 2 & 3), producer Bill Mechanic (CORALINE, HACKSAW RIDGE), Chinese producer Shan Dongbing, Chinese producer Tang Xiru, screenwriter Christopher Ford (SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING), ScreenCraft’s co-founder Cameron Cubbison, and Orb Media’s Peter Shiao.

This is the first cross-cultural screenwriting mentorship program to develop writers in both English and Chinese languages. The program seeks talented emerging screenwriters that are prepared to create works that can appeal to a global audience. Applicants worldwide are encouraged to submit original feature film screenplays promptly for consideration by the final application deadline on February 10th, 2017.

Every year the program will select four winners who will each be offered an option fee of at least WGA minimum (up to $13,374) against a six-figure purchase price at WGA scale contingent on production (up to $133,739 each, depending on the final budget of each film). Orb Media Group and its partners will financially back and develop the projects for production and distribution with partners in China and the United States.

Orb Media will also provide the winners with round-trip travel to the Beijing Film Festival in April 2017 to participate in special training and mentorship programs in partnership with the Beijing Film Academy.

“The big brass ring for sure is to make films that will be embraced by the world’s two largest markets with autonomy in both. Yet, for the amount of attention co-productions have gotten, so very little has been achieved. The reality is that it is a very hard thing to do. It does not happen by accident, and it all begins with stories that work in both worlds. Enough has been said about what it takes to make things work, and the rewards for doing so. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and really commit to doing it,” says Orb Media founder Peter Shiao, who also founded the annual US-China Film Summit and produced the first ever US-Chinese co-production film, RESTLESS.

“We are excited to partner with Orb Media Group to develop and launch big career opportunities for talented emerging screenwriters,” says John Rhodes, president of ScreenCraft. “We welcome writers of all backgrounds to apply for this uniquely international talent development program.”
