An ISA Verified Production Co with a longstanding distribution relationship in place is looking for $4 million and under features across multiple subgenres: Grounded Sci-Fi, Thriller, Action, Horror or Fantasy. This needs to have characters that really shine and be appealing to directors too, something that would make a director’s imagination spark with visual flair.
This is such a great opportunity for genre writers to get something made, as this kind of material is really hot right now. The genre is the star. A relatively contained (i.e. "Covid-friendly") concept would be ideal but is not mandatory. We’re looking for high-concept hooks that break away from the norm. Exciting, genre-bending stuff with a fresh voice or unique take will be given priority.
Movies like Cube or The Invitation are great comparisons, as both were made for a million or under.
We strongly encourage BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and female writers, as those are voices that are typically underrepresented and undervalued in this market.
When submitting, please include your SCRIPT, a SYNOPSIS and most importantly, a great LOGLINE. We want to see an undeniable hook. We will narrow our selection from the synopsis and logline, so you’ll want to put your best foot forward.
Union and non-union writers accepted. Scripts from anywhere in the world will be considered but must be in English language.
NOTE: An “ISA-verified producer” means it is a respected industry professional/company with means to fund projects that suit their mandate. They wish to remain private and have entrusted the ISA to vet and find content to send to them.
