Particularly Interested in
Ideally looking for contained (small cast, fewer locations), pandemic-friendly projects (note that most all productions will require 20-25% of the budget for COVID compliance). Preferably high-concept. To me, "high-concept" does not mean big budget with no character development. Strong characters and an emotional arc for the protagonist will always be important.
