Spark – Rachael Craw.  Action romance, gorgeous leading man, gutsy leading lady, sci-fi thrills. What more could anyone want in a movie script?Why hasn’t anyone noticed this already?

The Fourteenth Summer of Angus Jack by Jen Storer. There are some amazing characters here, made for the big screen. Or animation. That would work really well too.

Fairytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near. Because I can hardly ever see pictures in my head and I can see this. Scary. Creepy. Suspenseful.

Two Wolves by Tristan Bancks. Great narrative storytelling and a spectacular setting.

The First Third by Will Kostakis. The whole theatre would laugh and laugh and they’d all be better people for having watched it.
