European Producer Seeking Features To Be Shot In Cyprus

Paid Gig
ISA Verified Pro - European producer seeking feature projects to be shot in Cyprus.  Character-driven Drama and Romance preferred but not essential. Low to Medium budget.

The story does not need to be designed to make people want to go to Cyprus. It is already a major tourist destination. This is about showing off what great films can be made there too. There is a variety of visual elements to play with: Beach-side paradise, dynamic cosmopolitan locales, even uniquely arid vistas for post-apocalyptic material.

Please note that the producer is looking at material that can be altered to be shot in Cyprus as well.

Comps in the vein of: Palm Springs, Before Midnight, Manchester by the Sea.

Union and non-union writers accepted. Scripts from anywhere in the world will be considered but must be English language. All unique and original voices welcome to apply. Please submit Logline, Synopsis, and Script.

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

NOTE: An “ISA Verified Industry Pro” is a respected industry professional/company with the means to fund projects that suit their mandate. They wish to remain private and have entrusted the ISA to vet content to send to them. We will disclose their contact information to you when your script has passed the first round and is requested by 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!
