Thank you for your interest in submitting materials or ideas to Big Small Town Studios for consideration. Unfortunately, due to legal issues concerning intellectual property rights, we are
unable to accept
unsolicited screenplays, treatments, beat sheets, etc. While our team consists of a diverse group of individuals, and while we do strive to tell a broad range of stories through our filmmaking, we generally adhere to a very specific set of criteria when it comes to taking on new projects, or developing ideas into full-fledged scripts.
Despite this, we do not want to discourage anyone from sharing the next great idea that could end up being a marketable, produce-able story. To that end, we have created this form for submissions. It is the one and only place we will accept any such material. To submit to us, you must fill in every item on this form, and you must check the box at the bottom stating your understanding of the terms (which are outlined in the "Terms of Submission" section below).
Material submitted via this form is limited to text only. We ask that you do not copy and paste full screenplays, novels, outlines or treatments in this form. Material should be limited to between 500 and 1,000 words (3 Word document pages maximum) if possible. If you are making a pitch, you should be able to do so in a few paragraphs at most. If we want to see more, we will get in touch with you.
