INDIGENOUS SCI-FI SCRIPT IMPRESSES THE BLACK LIST
Great feedback continues to roll in for our Indigenous sci-fi feature-length screenplay, ‘Kindred’!
The prestigious (and notoriously hard to please) film industry website, The Black List, had this to say:
“Kindred is imaginative, action-packed, and exciting… filled to the gills with obstacles and action, never letting the stakes or danger let up for even a moment… a thrilling story in a world with an interesting mythology and plot that doesn’t stop moving.”
We’re thrilled the reader gave ‘Kindred’ a much sought after and prayed-for score of 8/10! Less than 5% of scripts on The Black List get that!
When you combine that with the great Screencraft.org feedback we got, and the fact that producers are already requesting the script, we’re pretty pleased.
Set in the Australian Outback – and with Indigenous Australians in several lead roles – Kindred is a rollicking adventure in the vein of District 9 and Star Wars. It tells the tale of one man’s failed alien abduction and how he must work with his would-be captor to save humankind from extinction before the monsters from his past catch up with them.
Other Indigenous sci-fi has made the news recently with the exciting new series, ‘Cleverman‘ showing on the ABC in Australia and being picked up for a second season by SundanceTV in America. We’re on the lookout for interested producers and agents to help bring our sci-fi tale to life, too. If you know anyone that might be right for us, we would be super stoked if you shared this post with them. Or feel free to contact us directly 🙂
