Award-Winning Director Seeking Writer To Work On Feature Film

Paid Gig

Looking for a Screenwriter, who could help turn my Synopsis into a Feature Film Script. The story is set in Azerbaijan and London and tells us about a Muslim girl struggling to become a top-model. The theme is devoted to women's rights in Muslim countries. Please send Cover Letter, Resume and Samples. Deadline is 13th June. From the shortlist of screenwriters, they will then need to write 1-3 pages of a dialogue scene as the last part of the brief.

Story summary - “A young woman growing in a conservative Muslim family in a remote Azerbaijan village is discovered by a leading international modelling agency. However, her dream of becoming a top model soon clashes with the pressure to uphold the reputation of a respectable Muslim woman in the demanding world of fashion”. ©GyulyaraMeliki2020 (www.gyulyarameliki.com)

Knowledge of the following films are helpful but not essential to inform the writer about the protagonist, tone and style: I Tonya, Erin Brockovich, Leagally Blonde & Desert Flower.

When completed we will look for funding (we have already potential partners) and a percentage of the funding would go to the screenwriter (minimum £10000). However, a certain amount (TBC depending on experience/time) will be paid up front when a contract is signed.
