COLLABORATION is a huge part of the plan we have for the company, from low budget short films to ambitious feature film projects, working one on one with a number of co-writers and directors at every stage of the script development process – from structuring, outlining, and expanding a half page story idea to redrafting completed feature film scripts.
Our screenwriting goal with Driftwood Doll Films is to guide writers in the completion of their scripts and treatments to a professional standard.
We want to generate and encourage a new wave of passionate, ambitious, independent film-making, where there are no doors closed to you because of where you come from, no glass ceilings stopping your projects taking off, and where you find a positive creative driving force to push your film ambitions to the next level.
Soon we’ll be up and running with regular writer groups, film-making groups, and arranging individual meetings to discuss projects and what we can do to help.
