Do you have a quality short film script that you would like to see made into a short film?
Eye Films Limited are looking to source a number of original short film scripts from up and coming UK-based writers who are keen to see their work realised on the screen and at film festivals.
Since 2007 we have seen a number of our own short films exhibited nationally and internationally and are looking for new material to work on ahead of our next feature film in 2018.
We are looking for scripts that are strongly thematic and with the potential for stunning visuals and sound.
We want stories that engage, entertainment and captivate.
While scripts can be in any genre, we are particularly interested in “mumblecore”, drama and horror. Scripts should be no more than 12 pages in length and should be live action.
If you submit your script to us we will sign a basic NDA to protect your copyright, including a pledge not to share your script or idea with anyone outside of Eye Films.
If we think the script is worth considering we will offer an initial development option. An option is not a guarantee your script will be made.
Please note that we will not offer feedback on scripts we do not option and we cannot accept work written by those under 18 years of age.
Eye Films Limited will fulfil all of the production management and expenses and also work to ensure that your story is put in front of key festivals in the UK and internationally.
