Over the last year I’ve been intermittently fiddling with a short film script which hasn’t really come together. It’s been one of those ideas that seems great, but after much debate with the director/co-writer and many drafts we’ve come to the conclusion that it just doesn’t work.
Which is a shame, but never mind. These things happen.
If you, on the other hand, have a short you’re happy with and looking to get made then maybe you should check out the ShoreScripts short film fund?
In their own words:
We will be commissioning at least one short film with a budget between $9000-$15,000.
The winning film(s) will be submitted to world-renowned film festivals, as well as being shown to our Oscar winning Judges, Production Companies, Agents and Managers.
The filmmaking team will have the full support of Shore’s staff all the way through the production process, including equipment and post-production service deals.
The fund is open to writers from all countries. Scripts must be in English. If a writer wishes to direct his/her own script, then we are open to this discussion.
These are the two previous winners:
