Supporting the creative community has always been a top priority at BET which is why we launched Project CRE8, our first ever nationwide filmmaker competition. On September 28, five emerging directors flew to Los Angeles to pitch their feature film to a panel of BET and Paramount Players executives. Quincy Ledbetter came out on top, winning access to a $1,000,000 budget to direct his feature film Alieu the Dreamer.

After receiving over 650 submissions, we narrowed our contestants to the Top 50. Here’s Quincy’s Top 50 bio video.
We then narrowed the Top 50 to the Top 10, assigning our contestants a challenge: to shoot a scene from their film. Check out Quincy’s scene below.
