How OpenGate Can Help
OpenGate Entertainment is focused on disrupting the traditional entertainment model by helping creatives polish, package, pitch, produce and distribute their ideas for scripted and unscripted television, movies and short films.
Start Your Journey
After your kickoff call with the OpenGate team to review your project, we get to work on helping you perfect your idea and set up all of the components you need to get your project packaged the right way. From beat sheet and outline all the way through to pitch deck, we will maximize your projects full potential and allow it to reach its best state possible.
During the development process, OpenGate will help you craft your screenplay and additional materials to become the best version of itself. Topped off with a world class pitch deck that will visually communicate all the important scenes, sequences, characters, story points, and tone of your project, your project will truly be ready for the next phase.
Once the OpenGate Pitch Package has been completed, your project will be placed into the catalog that is made available to our vast Distribution Network of Producers, Agents, and Distributors looking to greenlight original projects. Using our web based portal, quarterly distributor meetings, and film festival marketing, we get your project the visibility it needs to be sold and ultimately brought to life.
I found the Process to be paced perfectly, with the writer being able to pick and choose his/her own deadline removing some of the pressure that might come along with working on a script in this fashion. I also found the feedback I received to be top notch, and thought that you guys did wonders for bringing the script to a higher level.Zach ZebrowitzGood Morning Dove
I am so happy I found OpenGate and I can't say enough good things about the entire Process. I had no idea coming into this what the Development Process was like and Shane did such an excellent job at explaining it and then guiding me through it. Shane also saw the potential of my creativity and what my story would become. Luke was invaluable in giving me feedback on my Pilot and teasing out all the details that would create a great story. I felt so supported, I learned so much, and I am super grateful to Shane and Luke who taught me what a strong Pilot and Story needs in order to stand out in this industry. I highly recommend OpenGate Entertainment.Adrian MirandaGross Anatomy
OpenGate helped me take my passion project from page to screen, believing in me and my story when others wouldn’t. They’ve become such a significant part of my journey as an artist . They’re the people who want to make your dreams come true. After our first successful short film, we’ve been working together to develop the feature version. The process has been nothing short of exceptional. There aren’t enough thank you’s to express my gratitude to this kick-ass team.Victoria DeBlaussVelvet

I have enjoyed working with Opengate. I learned a lot in the process of how to properly develop a script. I do hope to work more with Opengate in the future.Cody EvansLangoliers
As someone who’s worked in the industry for years as an editor and has won screenplay contests in the past, I’ll admit I was somewhat skeptical about working with OpenGate since it’s so different from how the film industry usually works. But after putting them through the wringer with my questions and skepticism, I finally took the plunge - and I couldn’t be happier.Jimmy MillerSlugger
Opengate entertainment was a pleasure to work with, the whole team was very helpful and helped me to create a better script by giving me wise professional advice, And I think anybody that is trying to sell their script or improve it should definitely work with Opengate Entertainment.John KoenSilent Rage
I am just another person who believes they have a story worthy of television production. My dream drove me to research, then write multiple attempts to get my story told. Initially I thought the project was ready but I soon realized that I had no guidance on how to get noticed. If you are like me, a frustrated writer with a story to tell. If you understand today’s demand for content. If you want professional guidance and support. Call, write, email, search OPENGATENOW.Scotty SpiersTimeshare Kings
