Seeking Multiple Writing Partners to Help w/ Sci-Fi Screenplay

Paid Gig

ATL filmmaker is seeking someone with a love of Sci-fi.  I'm looking for a writer (MFA Screenwriting graduate, near graduate, alumni, or someone with equivalent work experience), who can write to the African-American experience, to co-write on a variety of projects. We're not looking to start from scratch, but rather to turn the ideals into a screenplay. The candidate would be someone who has written, but not necessarily sold, a feature screenplay in the same genre.  Most collaboration will take place over WebEx/Skype/Conference calls etc. and weekdays and on the weekends for a couple of hours at mutually acceptable times. Our goal is to keep meetings to less than an 30-mins for each sitting. We’re negotiable with meeting dates and times. I wear multiple hats in this project and I need someone who can listen takes notes then turn the notes into a screenplay.
