Many thanks to Lianne, Anya, Eat My Shorts and Billy The Kidney for asking if I'm okay this week since I haven't posted since Monday... I can assure Billy in particular that I haven't "dropped off the edge of the known universe" or been eaten by my cats: I've just been really busy with work. I've had so many scripts lately my head is about to explode. Not that I'm complaining - bring it on!
Whilst I get another post together, here's a couple of script calls for you... As always, if you use 'em, let us know how you get on.
Cinelight Studios - Comedic Thriller
We are looking for completed feature-length character driven suspense/thriller scripts with strong comedic elements that offer a new take on the genre without being parodies. Which is to say that we're looking for scripts that do for the thriller genre what 'Shaun of the Dead' did for the horror genre. We are looking for scripts that are available to option or buy, so if you want to direct or produce your script yourself and have no prior experience in development, packaging, producing, and directing feature length films for theatrical release, please do not submit.
WGA and non-WGA writers may submit. Budget will be between $1 and $2 million.
Among others our credits include the comedic sci-fi adventure "Waste of Space" slated for release later this year.

4. You will be submitting a logline and synopsis only, and you will be contacted to submit the full script only if there is interest from the production company.
IMPORTANT: Please ONLY submit your work if it fits what the lead is looking for EXACTLY.
If you aren't sure if your submission fits, please ask InkTip first. Please mention you heard about this from Jeff Gund at INFO LIST, and please email any questions to: email@example.com.
