Do you have a short film script you’d love to see filmed but don’t have the funds, equipment or staff to realise your dream?
Good news! The Birmingham School of Acting is looking for scripts for its Short Film Season 2018.
Successful writers will get to see their work produced and will receive a copy of the film. It will also be made available to watch on the School’s website.
The Birmingham School of Acting trains actors for a professional career. They are looking for shorts to be produced to professional standards and presented at their Short Film Season with students from the School of Acting in the cast.
They are primarily looking for scripts featuring 4 roles, with the characters in their late teens to mid 20s to fit the main demographic of the students.
Casting will be colour-blind, and it may be possible to include a guest older actor as a cameo if it is essential for your story.
The actors should feel they have parity in terms of screen time/lines. The approximate duration of the finished film should be 6 to 7 minutes (c. 7/8 pages of script)
You should use the film script template on the BBC Writersroom website in your submission.
Be creative with your ideas but make sure your script is achievable within a low-budget.
They are primarily looking for contemporary settings and interiors, ideally shot in one location and with a maximum of two locations.
The submission deadline is 28 February and are only open to UK resident writers.
Script submissions and any questions should be sent to: Clifford Milner, Senior Tutor for Recorded Media at: Clifford.Milner@bcu.ac.uk
