SUBMIT A SCRIPT

We’re very keen to read as many great new scripts as possible so that’s why we’re so excited about opening this page to help writers understand what we’re looking for and to explain how to send your screenplays to us. Please read this in full.

So, what type of scripts are we interested in?

We’re interested in powerful stories, no matter which genre they’re in.

We judge scripts based on the originality of the story, the emotional journey of the characters, and the quality of the writing.

This is a list of genres which we are always looking for:

  • romantic comedies
  • romantic dramas
  • comedies
  • horror
  • soldier stories
  • low budget action
  • thriller or crime drama
  • children and family

We do ask that you only submit your best work, and that you take the time to ensure that the format of your script conforms to industry standards.

Please send us a logline first, and if we’ll show interest and contact you, continue to the next steps.

Please read through your script before you send it to us. We’re not going to PASS your script for having a typo, but typos and spelling mistakes take a reader out of the story, and indicate that you might not care as much about the project as we need you to. It’s in your interest to check through it.

There are several genres that we like, and yet are harder to get produced, but if you have the best one out there – then let’s take a look: Drama, coming of age film, high-school or college based film and finally, road trips.

The fact that a certain type of story is a harder sell does not intimidate us. We are looking for strong dramatic elements, and as long as your project has them – then we’d love to read your script and fight to get your story on the screen.
