05-15-07 Less Is More  I am an actor and filmmaker and am on the lookout for feature film scripts for future productions. Film scripts based on fewer locations and actors would be more suitable for us, since these are scripts that can be self-funded, should we not get any investors on board. I am particularly interested in the suspense genre. We are low budget filmmakers and have just finished our first feature movie titled 'I Hate Candy' a murder-mystery, a script which I co-wrote, and which took 2 years to complete and which we funded ourselves. Also, if you think you have an interesting idea, please email us. I'd also love to hear synopsis(es?) of scripts written in other languages as we may be able to help out with dialogues, etc. In regards to the budget, we have none in place at the moment. but we are in contact with distributors from whom we plan to seek future deals. Thanks for your interest. Apply to Rifa Films, info@rifafilms.com, Tel: +61 (0) 405 171 365, Website: http://www.rifafilms.com.
