Script Submission Process

  • February 11, 2023

Scriptwriters with their fully developed scripts can approach SCRIPTick by first sending the detailed synopsis of their registered script (registered at The Screen Writers Association or at South Indian Film Writers Association or in any other way) mentioning the registration number along with Synopsis/Script Submission Form (available in the website) duly signed. Both synopsis and Synopsis/Script Submission Form can be sent by mail to Team SCRIPTick.

Team SCRIPTick shall go through such registered synopsis and if found suitable for its development or acquisition shall contact in writing and ask for submitting the fully written and registered bound script at our office (as a printed copy) or by mail along with Script Submission Form, available on the website, duly signed.

Team SCRIPTick shall go through the fully written bound script and if found suitable shall contact the script writer for further discussion on tying up for the acquisition and working together to pitch with Producers/Filmmakers.

Both detailed synopsis and bound scripts for now must be in either English or Tamil. No Tanglish or any other language format shall be accepted.

Detailed synopsis should present the complete story arc for the team to understand its merits. Hence, an introduction to the story or premise to the story or a partly explained story submitted as a synopsis will not go through to the next stage with our team and you might miss the opportunity to associate with SCRIPTick. Script Writers are advised to pitch a detailed synopsis with a complete story arc in at least 4 to 5 pages in length to understand its merits.

The bound script submitted must not be of more than 175 pages. Script Writers must ensure that their script is restricted to 175 pages while submitting as scripts of size more than 175 pages, shall be refused by Team SCRIPTick to go through, for paucity of time.

Team SCRIPTick shall ensure that every synopsis or bound script submitted is acknowledged at every stage and if not accepted, a Script Return Form (SRF) shall be sent to the screenwriters to inform about not proceeding further with the script.

The terms of tying up talented screenwriters will vary from script to script and based on the background and experience of the writers, the tie-up will be done keeping in mind the interest of both SCRIPTick and the Screenwriters.

Screen/Script Writers can submit a physical copy of the script book if they are interested rather than sending the soft copy (PDF) of their registered script. While the detailed synopsis can be sent as a soft copy by mail, the full bound script can be sent as a physical copy or by mail depending on the comfort of the script writer.

Unregistered scripts shall not be entertained for evaluation or reading by the SCRIPTick team to avoid copyright issues later. Registered scripts shall protect the interest of the Script Writers and SCRIPTick encourages everyone to register their scripts before pitching with us.

Script Writers must send in their Detailed Synopsis along with Script/Synopsis Submission Form to the mail ID:

If they are submitting their full script, they can submit the same with the Script/Synopsis Submission Form duly filled in at the Office Address given in the CONTACT section.

"A person who can tell a good lie can be a good storyteller. You have to create something out of nothing. You have to present a lie, which looks like the truth."

“Everything starts with writing. And then to support your vision, your ideas, your philosophy, your jokes, whatever, you’ve gotta perform them and/or direct them, or sometimes just produce them.”

“For any role, I pretty much always go to the script, first and foremost.”
