I'm wanting to produce a feature film based on a concept I have, but I'm having trouble fleshing out the idea enough to write the script. I'd like to work with a comedy writer to take this concept and to write a full treatment. Probably something 3-5 pages. The tone and style I'm looking for is something like "Office Space" and "Silicon Valley". Familiarity with the late 90's tech industry and the DotCom bubble will be really helpful.

How much would you enjoy writing for a daily audience of 90,000 people (and growing)? We are a small, growing marketing firm with a focus on Health & Wellness topics. We're seeking a female screenwriter who practices health regimens herself or has an interest in Health & Wellness topics. In particular, if you practice the Paleo diet, you're already ahead of the game. Your responsibilities will be vitally important to our company. You'll script our weekly video and compose our daily, story-based newsletter. Other smaller videos will be produced, as well. We're not necessarily seeking women with ad and marketing experience. We want an individual that we can train and mold, and we like screenwriter skill sets. The selected writer will display a strong talent for emotional and intimate storytelling in general, while maintaining the basic screenwriting disciplines of brevity and conciseness of meaning. We seek eloquence and wit, but not flowery, verbose language. We want a woman...

. I believe I have a story inside. You’ve tried to write it down, and have sketched out some ideas here and there. but I realize that all these bits and pieces are scrambled, and need some kind of order, in order to write a book and I need to hire a ghost writer. I need a ghostwriter to structure and shape the book, including its scenes, sections, that is true to my vision. I retain the claim to the book’s copyright and take responsibility for the material in the pages. I need a professional ghostwriter that will alert me of potential legal issues, but ultimately, the book he/she will ghostwrite will be mine. I am looking for an excellent ghostwriter who will listen to how I express my self in person or over the phone. She/he will notice the complexity of my sentence structure, my pet phrases, and my tone. Then, as she/he begins to ghostwrite my book, he will create a voice that sounds as if it were mine. I need the ghostwriter to capture my voice and ideas and draw the story...

Please read this in it's entirety before applying. Looking for a hilarious writer that has a wide range of knowledge and that is completely current with high grossing "bro comedy" movies that do well, like TED & The Wedding Crasher. Major plus if you're also familiar with Rowan Atkinson's latest work. I have a concept that is quite funny and need someone to get sample scenes working.so I can see how this fleshes out. I have outlines of what I want to happen - you take that and make it pee-your-pants funny. A successful candidate will be fluent in English, have a great feel of the story, the situational comedy that's involved, and a span of knowledge across cultures. If we work well together and your work is genuinely good and of high caliber - I'll make a more lucrative offer to you. The hired freelancer will have to sign a Non-Disclosure and be willing to have regular Skype brainstorm meetings.
