Jobs at the Black List

Freelance Graphic Designers (Anywhere)

The Black List is seeking freelance graphic designers to create posters for unproduced screenplays. Designers will be asked to coordinate with the writers to come up with a design matching the tone and story. Please see previous samples for general expectations on design and style.

Pay is $100 per poster. Interested applicants should send any relevant samples and/or links to portfolios to [email protected].

Freelance Script Readers

The Black List is selectively hiring professional script readers to evaluate screenplays and pilots and to write brief evaluations for submissions from the Black List website. All readers are hired on a freelance basis.


  • Readers may read as few or as many scripts as they can accommodate with their schedule.
  • All readers are remote and may complete work from any location.
  • Readers are paid on a per script basis. Screenplay and 1-hr pilots or longer are paid at $60 per script. Pilots 30 minutes or shorter are paid at $45 per script.
  • Bonuses may be paid each month depending on the quantity and quality of evaluations completed.

Requirements (please only apply if you meet these criteria):

  • Needless to say, readers must read all scripts thoroughly and completely and be detail oriented in their analysis of every script.
  • Readers must have strong writing skills, including thoughtful qualitative feedback and clear, concise language (including professional-level grammar and diction).
  • Applicants must have a minimum of one year, full-time experience (i.e. not interns) reading as, at least, employed first filters for major Hollywood financiers, studios, networks, production companies, agencies, or management companies.
