Online Commission: Phone Fictions, Visible Fictions
Deadline: Fri 27 Mar 2020
These are strange and unpredictable times - so let’s get creative! We are seeking pitches for 1 minute stories from artists based in Scotland - whether that's a monologue, a stop motion animation, a puppet piece, a song... anything original! And something that you can film on a mobile phone from the comfort of your own home - perfect if you are having to batten down the hatches and ride this virus wave.

We'd love these pieces to help people stay positive during these uncertain times. And yes, there is a fee for your work – so whether fun, exciting or moving - tell us your ideas and we’ll commission the best.

We’ll pay £100 to each story maker and each phone fiction has an additional £100 production budget available which could be used for an actor fee, visual artist etc. We’ll share these all over our social media and on our website for audiences to enjoy everywhere.

Send us your pitches (a good rule of thumb is they will be no more than ¾ of a page of A4 12 point font, or 1 standard formatted film/tv script page) with subject line PHONE FICTIONS by Fri 27 March 2020 at 5pm to Lisa on

Remember - we make work for young people, so even though many of our social media audience are older young people, no post watershed content please!

For further information, please visit our website

The deadline is Friday 27 March 2020 at 17:00.
