Do you want to make a short film? Or, better yet, do you want to write one without the hassle of filming it yourself? Well, we want your scripts, so read our submission brief, below.
Tea Fuelled are a collective of writers, producers, actors and filmmakers with over 4 years experience of producing films based on new writing. For our next project, we’re looking for a script for a short film, which focuses on one event. A moment that tells a story.
We are a creative and collaborative company and our films often incorporate the playful and the fantastical. See some of our previous films to get an idea of our work:
We are looking to make a short, powerful piece: we ask for scripts for films less than five minutes in length, although longer scripts will be considered under exceptional circumstances. Scripts should be formatted in Final Draft, or using a similar programme.
Our chosen script will be beautifully written and inventive but feasible: while fantastical scripts are welcome, this will be a live action film and will be made on a limited budget. Scripts should not include animation or CGI. Think Pan’s Labyrinth rather than Avatar.
Scripts will be judged by a panel of Tea Fuelled members. Please note that the submission is unpaid. There will be a development period on the script with Tea Fuelled and the finished film will be marketed strongly to international film festivals.
We will officially launch the project at Tea Fuelled’s quarterly cabaret night, Flea Circus, at the Dogstar, Brixton, Thursday 25 April, 7.30pm. Join us on the night to find out more and meet the company. Details HERE
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or with your submission by Monday 17 June, or we’ll see you at Flea Circus.
