Do you love genre movies? Do you like your Thrillers Thrilling? Your Horrors horrifying? Your Comedies Comical? Then this lab may be of interest to you, especially if you have a Killer Logline up your sleeve.

The UK is looking to the Hollywood model: a strong hook, with great characters and a lean structure, adhering to convention without becoming clichéd.  The demand for original screenplays in this vein is huge – yet there’s a real dearth!

Six LSF delegates will be picked for this lab with Writer/Director JK Amalou, who will put those Script Labbers’ concepts through the wringer. Road testing concepts is the 100% effective way of ensuring you don’t waste time on drafts that don’t work or have no chance in the marketplace.

JK Amalou has worked with Martin Scorsese, Ridley and Tony Scott and Richard Gladstein, not to mention the Muscles from Brussels, Jean Claude Van Damme!

JK’s currently developing a slate of films for his production company Silverleaf Pictures, including the horror film LAIR, supernatural thriller WHISPERS and a sci-fi film REWIND.

If anyone can help make your genre movie concept into a killer premise, it’s JK.
