We want you to write an original and innovative film script charting London's journey to The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Think what this means - overnight you will become a recognised British film writer. The film will be shown on our flights in the run up to, and during, the London 2012 Games, while an edited version will also be shown as a pre-landing film. 

Your film will also be used as part of the official London 2012 Sports Presentation Programme as well as being a part of the pre-show to the Opening Ceremony. This means it will be shown on screens in the Olympic Park, entertaining spectators and reaching a combined international audience of millions.


To help develop your script and give it the polish it deserves, you will receive mentoring from Richard E Grant, a significant British screen presence for more than three decades. A leading London production company will then be commissioned to produce your film.
