Looking to enter the film production industry as a screenwriter but have no experience and do not know where to begin? Email me!

I am a high school student looking for a remote screenwriter to create a story and script which I can produce, making this a two man production to later post on YouTube in hopes of building name and portfolio. I myself have 0 experience within the industry and am looking for somewhere to begin, but need a screenwriter.

Looking to begin screenwriting ASAP, filming done in summer.

Why this would benefit you:

  • You don’t have to invest, you can participate for free
  • Experience being a screenwriter
  • 0 experience needed
  • Could potentially earn you profits, not guaranteed
  • A film to add to your portfolio
  • Screenwriter credits
  • Entirely remote, work from home over zoom
  • Story is entirely yours
  • We can help each other create our first ever film


  • 0 experience necessary, this is my first experience, I’d love to find someone who is looking for a first experience
  • Available after school hours and sometimes weekends, no specific schedule, we will figure out when we can work
  • Willing to accept failure as a stepping and learning stone as well as negative feedback (ie. YouTube comments)
  • Creativity in story and in script
  • Not expecting a 100% professional production as we are both probably unexperienced and have limited budget
  • Willing to take feedback from me should we need to work together to modify the script

As screenwriter, you and I will be working closely to create an amazing and engaging story of any simple genre of your choosing. You may even take on a few roles of production/directing, should you envision specific scoring, sound effects, lighting and so forth.

To apply, please email me a little bit about you, a description of the story you envision, and your availability. If possible, it is preferred that you email me a small portion of your script so I can get an idea of your creativity.

In this we will be 100% partners. We will work together as a team. I am not looking for a crew member, I am looking for a partner 🙂

Please write “screenwriter application – (name)” in email subject line 🙂 thanks!
