Do you want to turn your script into a short film? If so, then this BBC opportunity is for you.

BBC Writersroom has announced Interconnected, a competition asking for original scripts about two to four characters in self-isolation, who connect via online video conference.

The relationship can be in any way including friends, lovers, colleagues, families, or possibly not at all. But, they each find themselves self-isolating int his time in human history.

The scripts should be somewhere between five and ten minutes long, showing human interaction in a self-isolated world.

Four of the best scripts will be produced with professional actors for BBC platforms in April.

The lucky winners will each receive £300 for their script.

Anne Edyvean, Head of BBC Writersroom, said: “The BBC Writersroom team believe in the power of stories and storytellers to keep us hopeful, entertained and to help us make sense of the world, particularly in such a strange and unprecedented time as the one we find ourselves in now.

“We want scripts that are compelling and hook us in. Ideas that have warmth and spirit, that astonish, amuse or enlighten us.”

Entries must be made to the BBC Writersroom website, where you can also find the full terms and conditions.

All entries must be submitted by Monday 30th March at 12noon.
