The Genesis of co-founders Talieh Safadi and Matthew Davis felt there are numerous problems with script and short film competitions. “Here we have talented individuals from all over the globe winning these myriad contests against thousands of other submissions, with nowhere to go after their moment in the sun” said Talieh, “this collective frustration born by these hopeful artists, trying to get their movies produced, inspired us to bring Hollywood to them.” Said Davis, “what was needed was a talent incubator that results in tangible salable product – feature films.”

"Realizing what's currently lacking in support for emerging filmmakers, we decided to bring hope to this next generation of talent" said co-founder Talieh Safadi, "on the platform, it's a democracy of Industry peers providing feedback, coverage and introductions" added co-founder Matt Davis, "having worked as a Film Professional for the last 25 Years, I sensed a frustration for not only exposure to others in the Industry, but also the lack of hope in seeing their final product on the Big Screen.” through its unique contest, YouWin, gives Writers and Directors a fighting chance at actually making a movie because they never compete with more than 999 other submissions in their category. bullet points
