What has your company produced? For what studios or networks? Asylum is probably most famous for the SHARKNADO franchise, with the fourth installment airing on Syfy July 2016. We also produce Z NATION, Syfy’s number one scripted series. Other networks our films have premiered on include Lifetime and Animal Planet, and upcoming films are set to premiere on FUSE and AXS.
What genres are you looking for? Always looking for creature and disaster, but Asylum is especially looking for solid thrillers. Particularly ones with female-oriented suspense, action and characters.
Film, TV, New Media, Other? Asylum is mostly looking for films, but TV isn’t out of the question.
Budget range? Low to micro
What makes the ideal writer for your company? Someone who knows the genre and characters they are writing for, and is a team player.
What are your goals for the Great American PitchFest? To meet great up-and-coming writers and add them to Asylum’s ever-growing roster.
Have you had success at pitching events before? Yes! Asylum has several met writers from previous PitchFests that still write for us.
Do you have any GAPF success stories you can share with us from previous years? Asylum’s current casting director was initially introduced to us at a Great American PitchFest a couple years ago. He started out as a freelance writer and still writes for us. In fact, his latest movie ZOOMBIES is premiering May 2016 on FUSE. He also just finished up another script for us that’s currently in production.
Is there any advice you would like to offer the writers who are pitching you? Team players who are excited and knowledgeable about the genre they are writing for are always great. For Asylum, it isn’t necessarily about finding that perfect script (although we still jump for joy when that happens), but rather finding writers that can easily create the Asylum aesthetic.
