I am currently in the process of completing the screenplay for a children’s musical comedy-drama film and I am looking for a talented crew to join me on my journey.

To give you an idea of what I am going for, think along the lines of a crossover between Cinderella and Annie (2014).

Film Blurb: A young happy-go-lucky girl (Sophia), abandoned by her mother is forced to move in with her wicked stepmother and her three troublesome stepsisters after losing her father in a car accident.

Unwanted by her new so-called family, she is treated like an outsider and the only way she can escape is by entering her magical dreamland where everything seems perfect, but how long can that last.

Upon completion, I will be entering the production into Raindance Film Festival. The deadline for Raindance is Friday 10th June 2016 which means the production will have to be complete by this date.

Filming will be throughout the London area with transport provided. Filming will begin early April running through till mid May. I will then proceed to editing up till early June ready for the festival deadline.

All applications will be considered, however proof of previous work is advantageous.

All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
