COAST Creative Studios Seeking Writer for Short Film

COAST Creative Studios is looking for someone to write the screenplay for our up coming project "The Quartermaster".
   The story outline won the COAST pitch contest and is now being made into a short film and we're looking for someone to write the 10-15 page script during the month of November.  This is an excellent opportunity to expand you own writing talent and the short film itself going to be submitted to several festivals; including SXSW, AFI Dallas, and Sundance!  If you're interested please email me at armstrongr@jbu.edu and please include a short sample of your work.  No previous scriptwriting experience required, but is a plus.

Below is an expert from the winning pitch:
   “Our story begins with two men approaching a border crossing in an old Volkswagen, their identity, mission, and cargo unknown. They could only hope that would still be the case in a few moments when they passed under the harsh scrutiny of the guards.
   “Lord, when you were on earth you made blind eyes see. Now I pray, make seeing eyes blind”. This was Brother Andrew’s prayer when, in 1957, he neared the Yugoslav border with a car full of Bibles. Half a century later, the two men glanced at each other, their gaze meeting, both fully aware of the consequences of being caught.
“It was a mission fraught with peril and pathos, financed by faith, supported by miracles.”
