Writing Gigs

Character-Driven 'Shark' Features Wanted

Paid Gig

ISA Verified Producer seeks scripts with SHARKS. Limited budget up to $1,000,000. Please no explosions, limited boat stuff, no fights, alligators or snakes. Prefer character-driven thrillers for a male lead but must have sharks. 

Example movies like 47 Meters Down, Jaws and The Shallows.

WGA and Non-WGA accepted.

Female and diverse writers are encouraged to submit.

Very big bonus to writers and projects with a pedigree. In other words, if your project or you/yourself have won or placed highly in multiple contests or fellowships, or have been produced in the past, please notate that when submitting (it is not a hindrance if you have not).

When submitting, please include a synopsis and thoroughly developed logline – please do not only write a tag line or tiny TV Guide blurb. We want to know your concept and hook within the logline. We will narrow our selection from the synopsis and logline then request scripts. Please do not submit a script or reach out to us through the messaging system. You will immediately be disqualified.

Selected scripts will be considered for an option agreement with a payment based on the budget and payable upon production, plus the writer will receive a piece of the backend when sold. 

No limitations on locations or cast size but keep in mind that budget must be UNDER $1,000,000.

We look forward to reading your submissions.
