ISA Verified Pro Seeking Rom Com Features That Break The Mold (Up To PG13)

Paid Gig
ISA Verified Pro seeking Rom Com features that have unique new ways of subverting the genre and are acceptable for family viewing. Also looking for strong international appeal for streaming audiences. Budget $500k-2mm.

Looking primarily for projects that show diversity or highlight underrepresented stories but not essential. An example of breaking the mold could be mixing genres, such as Rom Com with Horror for Halloween audiences.

Comps include The Big Sick, Unlocking Christmas, The Fault in Our Stars, Always Be My Maybe.

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 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!
