Desperately seeking a producer

All writer Mick Connolly wants for Christmas is a producer:

Last month I won second prize in the Final Draft Big Break Screenplay Competition in L.A. with my comedy Crims, and I’m very keen to hear from producers who’d like to read the script.

In Crims, a small-time crook does a self-improvement course in an effort to win back the love of his estranged straight-laced daughter.

I’ve filmed the first page of the script as a ‘teaser’ in an effort to generate interest in the project. Chris Haywood, Steve Le Marquand and Bob Franklin are among the actors that participated. This one-minute teaser gives a clear indication of the tone of the film and my vision for it.
