If you’re a new or emerging screenwriter we would love to hear from you.

Projects in Development

2022 – Under The Ink – short-form documentary series

Through people’s deeply personal stories, Under the Ink explores the reason for the tattoo they have and why they decided to permanently mark their skin. This short-form documentary series is sometimes intimate,  sometimes funny and some stories are profound. We’ll interview the tattooed, their family, and some Tattoo artists who have designed the art and put ink to skin.
