Scene Around Film Company is looking for scripts ready to be produced for a web series or short film. Please note that we are a low budget indie film company – we have limited resources so your scripts should follow these guidelines:
1) no exotic locations;
2) no CGI/complicated special effects;
3) no huge casts or large crowd scenes.
As well as your understanding that due to our limited resources, we cannot option scripts at the moment nor can we provide transportation/lodging for writers outside of Massachusetts.
