Calling all writers! We’re launching #ScriptSearch with Greenacre Films, to help them find their next feature film project to develop.
We did of course consider delaying this programme until after the crisis, but we felt that it would be best to keep going and offer this amazing development opportunity for writers, especially as it will result in paid commissions.
If you’re stuck at home and looking to flex those creative muscles, check out all the details below and get entering!
Greenacre Films, producers of Netflix Original feature film Been So Long starring Michaela Coel and Arinze Kene, are looking for exciting new film ideas to take into paid development. It is free to enter, and all we need you to submit is a 2 page pitch of a feature film idea and 10-15 pages of the script.
Now, more than ever, it is hugely important to give a platform to unheard voices. Through Script Search, Greenacre are looking to provide diverse talent with a burning feature film idea the opportunity to develop that idea further with support from their team. We’re looking for stories that you feel haven’t been told before – in any genre at all. This is open to all, with or without literary agents. We want fresh, original projects that haven’t been out in the world yet, so bring us your newest work!
The projects are going to be developed over the next year or so, so please don’t be limited by current social distancing restrictions in your writing.
If you’ve been writing away on continuing drama, or working on short form content, this is your opportunity to get that feature film idea developed.
Greenacre will choose the projects they’d like to take through to the next stage. Selected writers will receive a fee to develop their idea into a 10 page treatment. If you are then selected to go through and are asked to develop the full script, you will be paid industry standard fees.
“We’re excited to be working with the Triforce Creative Network on #ScriptSearch. We’re keen to find exciting new projects – and it’s great to offer writers the rare chance to have their feature film idea developed” Nadine Marsh-Edwards, Greenacre Films.
We originally planned to invite 10 writers to a writing workshop in London, with Greenacre’s producers then select some projects to take forward into paid development. Due to the coronavirus, we are going to move this workshop online, which we intend to take place on Wed 02 Sept 2020.
Submissions are open from 08 June – 11.59pm on 19 July 2020. For more information on how to submit, go the entry page.
