HOOQ, the largest Video on Demand service in South East Asia, has concluded its inaugural HOOQ Filmmakers Guild with India’s submission BHAK which came out as the big winner.
BHAK will receive full funding for a full season and will be live streamed exclusively on HOOQ. The film submission from India went up against five other pilots from Singapore, Indonesia, and Thailand, which were selected from over 500 submissions across Asia.
HOOQ is calling on film professionals once again, be it directors, producers or scriptwriters, to send in scripts and treatments for a TV series idea they have. Submissions can be from Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Cambodia and the best pilot will be converted into a full series exclusively on HOOQ in 2019.
The five best scripts, regionally, will be given $30,000 to produce a pilot episode which will premiere on HOOQ.
HOOQ Filmmakers Guild 2018 will be open for entries until July 31, 2018. Applicants must be working as professionals in the film industry with prior film production experience. They are to submit the script and treatment for a series with a maximum of 13 episodes for a single season to qualify.
Submissions and productions must be in the language of the applicant’s country. The complete panel of judges will be announced soon.
