Award-winning female director is seeking a high-concept script to direct in 2021. Director has an LA based production company, with a number of both indie and studio features under their belt, which have starred A-list cast and played in the official selection at the Cannes and Toronto film festivals among others. Looking for scripts that can be made independently under a $5mil budget but have international potential with global reach.
The scripts can fall into two categories:
* Highly visual and stylized Folk-Horrors like Midsommar and The Witch.
* Gripping Eco-Thrillers or Dystopian scripts set in an absurdist, alternate reality in the vein of The Lobster, Never Let Me Go or Birdbox.
Open to a range of subjects from environmental whistleblower stories to climate fiction and horror, as long as the material is thought-provoking and emotionally resonant, not exploitative. (No pandemic or Covid stories please.) Other films liked are Annihilation, Melancholia, Night Moves, Children of Men and Take Shelter.
When submitting please include a SCRIPT, SYNOPSIS, a well-crafted LOGLINE, along with COVER LETTER (introducing yourself and a little background relevant to this gig) and a CV / RESUME. Rate to be negotiated upon agreement.
