- Length: The episode is meant to be around 3min, the script currently stands at 2.5 pages.
- Genre: Action romantic drama/comedy
- Payment: £20. There are no expenses paid, I don’t think you need to leave your home for this role. I am happy to speak over the phone or write to you to brief you. I intend to pay as soon as you have performed your first edit. It might be useful to give me an indication of how much work you typically expect to perform for this fee.
- Work: I am not looking for a major overhaul of the story, just the details. I am not sure what level of involvement I am looking for. I can’t promise that any of your suggestions will be considered, I can’t promise creative control. But I can promise that if you are selected, you will get paid.
- Credit: You will be credited as SCREENPLAY BY but I will still get credited as STORY BY
- Sequels: This is the first episode of a web series. 5 episodes have been written so far. However, there is no guarantee that you will be the writer for the other episodes.
- Release: The plan is to release the first episode on YouTube as soon as it is finished. However, due to the current pandemic I cannot give any indications of timelines. Once the lockdown is over, finding locations will be the only blocker.
- Format: The script is written in Celtx and I am happy to collaborate there if possible (I have the free version). But the script is very short, so happy to send it over in any format.
- Location: It would be a nice bonus, if you lived in London, in case we develop a long-term relationship. But as this job can be remotely, this is not a requirement.
Feel free to ask any questions before applying. When you apply, please show that you have read the job description, this will dramatically increase your chances of getting picked.
I am not sure how writers normally apply for jobs (I am a cinematographer myself and used to sending video showreels) but it might be helpful to point me towards a piece of action drama/comedy that you have written.
