What Is It?
The Black List is pleased to announce a partnership with Symbolic Exchange to identify an emerging screenwriter for a blind writing deal with Symbolic Exchange at the Writer Guild of America’s low budget minimum. The selected screenwriter will write an original horror film whose budget must fall within the WGA’s low budget guidelines,
Writers may opt into consideration via the Black List website beginning now, May 3, 2016, until 11:59 pm on August 12, 2016. Opted in scripts DO NOT need to be horror scripts to receive due consideration; however, writers should have great interest in writing an envelope-pushing horror film from a new perspective if selected for this opportunity.
Shortly after the opt-in deadline, the Black List will deliver a short list of writers to Symbolic Exchange for final consideration. Those writers will be expected to provide additional information about their writing background and specific interest in writing a low budget horror film. All evaluations purchased by 11:59 PT on July 12, 2016 will be guaranteed consideration as part of this opportunity.
To opt in for consideration for this opportunity with Symbolic Exchange, please review the additional information linked below. Please do not hesitate to email us with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Because our finalists are determined by examining all data about opted in scripts for site partnerships, we strongly advise purchasing at least one evaluation. In the event that the purchase of a single evaluation is cost prohibitive, please follow us on social media and the Black List blog where opportunities for free and discounted evaluations appear from time to time.
