Each episode—hosted by Roger Rohatgi—features the contestants’ pitches, tasks unique to the movie industry that have to be completed by a certain deadline and stories about the personal journey about how they got to where they are today. Our judges will give their opinion about who they think are best suited to be on the team but the audience has the last say as to who gets to stay on the show and make it to the Dream Makers movie making team.
After the contestants sign up they will have the opportunity to make pitch videos about themselves to show why they should be on the show. Once the contestants are evaluated, the semi-finalists will be notified within a few days whether or not they will be included on the show.
During January of 2014 our judges will select contestants from the nationwide audition process to compete for the movie making positions. 20 semi- finalists will be chosen in January. Then 10 contestants from each category will be announced in February. These contestants will compete for the one position in their category to become part of the Dream Maker Movie Team.
When the television broadcast phase starts, Dream Makers will announce the top 5 Directors. These directors will then work with the remaining contestants everyday for the rest of the season. They will provide their opinions, insights, and advice to help the rest of the contestants make the team.
Each week contestants will make a pitch video about how they would apply their craft to develop a section of a screenplay. The judges will give their professional opinion about who made the best pitch, but the audience will select their favorite contestants in each category. Each week the lowest vote getters from each category will leave the show.
