Production Co seeks low budget family films

Paid Gig

We are currently seeking several low-micro budget family scripts. Single or limited locations preferably with an animal involved. Something like a girl and her horse save the family ranch or a boy and his dog save the family when dad loses his job etc. These should be feel good type film, with strong messages and resulting in a strong outcome for the child or family.


PLEASE DO NOT bother to submit if your script has anything cloesly expensive, like a train or a helicoptor or large scenes or far away places.


We are simply looking for a contained film that can be shot in 1-3 locations like on a ranch, a house, a local town, park, etc. We prefer there to be a strong parent character, preferably the Dad or a single older (40's or 50's) male character that is a positive person in the story. The fewer characters the better. Think Hallmark or Disney.


Examples are films like:

  • Hanna's Gold
  • A Fine Step
  • Flicka
  • Moondance Alexander
  • Second Chances
  • Eight Below
  • Because of Winn-Dixie  

If we find the right script we will offer a basic 6 month option agreement. Writer will be paid in accordance with WGA standard and will receive writer credit and fee paid within one week of principal photography.
