Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.
This week’s pick: Royal Court call for creative work in response to short film.
Description:The Royal Court are seeking submissions of creative work in response to their short film Void, which can be found here. The film has been created by The Royal Court Young Agitators, (the young people involved in the Young Court programme), as their response to the plays Killology, Anatomy of a Suicide and Bodies. Together, they produced a film which they would like you to respond to. Your response is in the form of a submission through the art form of your choice; a short play, song, poetry, visual art. Anything!
What’s so great about it? This is a fantastic opportunity to start up a relationship with the prestigious Royal Court. You have the opportunity to stretch your creative muscles and respond to a film made by the young people currently working for the Royal Court.
You have full control over how you respond to the film, so whether you want to write a play or a song, the world is your oyster. If selected, your work will be commissioned by the Young Agitators to be put on for two nights on the 11 and 12 August 2017. To apply, simply watch the film, then create your response and send to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a short paragraph about yourself.
