Firstly, you don’t have to wait until notification date to get a BLASTOFF laurel on your poster.   We issue our beautiful, custom-designed “Nominee” and “Official Selection” laurels year-round.

The nominee laurel goes to exceptional, high-scoring films and add-in category submissions. The award qualifies your film for consideration as a festival screening selection, and/or as one of our year-round filmmaker-profit-sharing virtual-screenings. Films selected for any screening are awarded the “Official Selection” laurel.

ONE TRULY OUTSTANDING SCRIPT MAY BE SELECTED FOR PRODUCTION (value up to approximately $125,000) and worldwide distribution by the multi award-winning LunarSea® Studios.  BUT… it must be a truly outstanding script.  The selected script will be  made as an animated CGI film. It doesn’t necessarily have to be written for animation – the last LunarSea® production-script was written for live action, and was beautifully adapted by LunarSea® for CGI animation.  See the trailer here :

awards listing

Select films will be eligible for a profit-sharing digital distribution package for submission to streaming and sales outlets all over the world. By industry standards, this award could be worth up-to $10,000 in discounted QC and submission preparation fees.
