Production Process

Lionsgate will select one concept with the attached writer which will be produced into a showcase film and premiered online. Lionsgate will make all selections throughout the process, taking community reviews into consideration. Directors will be invited to submit to helm the greenlit film by uploading a resume, reel, and a presentation video inspired by the selected concept. Listings will be created for key cast and crew roles – with actors invited to upload audition videos along with their headshots and resumes. Lionsgate will consult with the selected director to attach the remaining cast and crew members to the project. Massify members are encouraged to review submissions using the combined comment and star-based rating system during each relevant phase. Please remember that individual reviews are public.
