Paid Gig
ISA Verified Pro looking for a unique spin on holiday features. Seeking stories around Christmas and winter period or any other seasonal holiday period. They are very keen on any Hanukkah features. Budget $500k-2mm. 

Diverse casting and underrepresented stories are preferable but not essential. Something family friendly. International appeal is keenly sought after for the streaming market. 

Comps include Last Christmas, A Christmas Gift from Bob, Almost Christmas, Mistletoe & Menorahs.

All unique and original voices welcome to apply! We support diversity across voices and creators, so we strongly encourage BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and female writers to submit. Union and non-union writers accepted. Scripts from anywhere in the world will be considered but must be English language. Please submit Logline, Synopsis, and Script.

When applying please write in the NOTE section (but not required):
- List of significant award wins (or add to your profile link)
- Your country of origin (if not based in US)

NOTE: An “ISA Verified Pro” 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please provide a brief logline of no more than two sentences. Your logline will be the first element our team will use to evaluate your submission. This is your calling card for your script, is it doing its job?

1. What is the central crisis driving the narrative, particularly in the second act?
2. Who is your main character and what is their emotional arc?
3. What is the general setting or tone of the piece?

If you are struggling to encapsulate these elements of your concept, then we recommend submitting your project for a logline review. Please also read this article and watch this video, then edit your logline. We encourage you to keep trying new versions of your loglines until you get more attention from producers. Loglines are that important!
