Jameson First Shot is accepting entries for its second competition. First Shot is an opportunity given to budding filmmakers who have a vision and a voice, but don’t have the benefit of an influential uncle in the movie business.

With a little help from Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti, three writers/directors will be selected to have their scripts made into short films by the award-winning Trigger Street Productions. The short will even feature Academy Award nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal.
