This specialized program was created to develop and support emerging screenwriters who have yet to secure an agent or manager, while helping writers better navigate this highly competitive business to find a path to break through. Our mission is to ultimately help you get represented and sell your work.
We submit your material to industry professionals, pitch you and your writing, and work to jumpstart your career.
We will act as a representative of you and your material WITHOUT the ISA attaching itself to your material.
In the past several months the ISA has helped 8 writers option their material and acquire agent representation.
- Denise Meyers script The Dark of Night completed principal photography with director Robin Wright (Forrest Gump), and stars Leslie Bibb, Sam Rockwell, Callie Thorne and Michael Godere.
- Eugene Ramos script Newton’s Law of Emotion has been optioned by Stage Screen Productions as a direct result of the ISA’s Development Program.
- Andy Byrne was invited into the Development Slate after becoming the ISA’s 2016 Fast Track III Fellow with his amazing screenplay Disconn. Since then the script has won gold in the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards, and now is in the hands of an A-List Actress in Hollywood.
“The ISA has been instrumental in the momentum of my career. By submitting my projects to high level companies and executives, I have received exposure that propelled me to the next level. I have a team working for me. ”Jamie Anderson (Development Slate Alum and Screenwriter)
