Introduce Yourself : Always on the lookout for talent! by Simon King

Simon King

Always on the lookout for talent!

Hello there! I am a producer based in the Pacific Northwest. I have an exciting slate of films in various stages of production. Next month we are shooting a $1.1MM western followed by Letters From Iceland ($3.5MM) filming this fall in Iceland and California. I am producing a $10-$15MM sic-fi that will be filming in eastern Europe. Always on the lookout for the right talent and crew!

Benjamin Alany

Cool, Simon. Sounds like some exciting things in store, good luck in your upcoming projects. I've always had a soft spot for the Pacific NW, used to live in Portland myself. I still visit now and then, and my brother lives there, along with some close friends. I'd move back myself, but currently my work leads me elsewhere in terms of places to live. Maybe someday though.

Roberta Solomon

Simon, thanks for posting and introducing yourself....and your work! I'm a voice artist based now in Portland, and look foward to connecting with you in person at some point. I've brought my work with me; network promos, movie trailers, narration for documentaries, etc. There are samples of current work and demos on my website at www.voicegal.com. Iceland, huh? I'm envious! By the way...I would love to voice the trailer/promos for any of your projects. Especially that Iceland thing. :)


Simon, let me know if you want to distribute any of this content. I am working with a company that can help you in the distribution pipeline.

Christina Stockberger

Hmmm also have a couple of film story ideas that would rather discuss in person as one is my own life story as many are saying I should right a book and have been thinking seriously on it lately cause it would have a great story line as well as be inspiring to the times of today.

Wesley Reid

HI Simon. This scribe has a 105-page, high-concept, comedy/horror script called BOOT HILL RESURRECTION. It is gaining a lot of traction within the Toronto film world. One of Canada's top producers terms it "super original and ready to break out." She, however, has transitioned to TV and my script doesn't fit her genre anyway. I'm new to this site so am not sure whether to post the logline and details, but, if you like, I can provide you with such on the chat service here.

Delia Sheppard

Welcome to the Stage 32 'tribe'. Let's make moving movies!

Wesley Reid

Got a question for folk here: if an actor close to A-list status really likes my script can I use that to entice producers?

Richard "RB" Botto

If that's the case, Wesley, congratulations. My advice would be to get a Letter of Intent (LOI) from the actor, otherwise any producer will question the sincerity of your statement.

Larenzo Simmons

I am very interested in some of these projects! Please review my profile.

CoCo Freeman

Hi Simon. I am a screenwriter living in Portland. I have sold one screenplay and have just finished a spec script. I am quite new to Stage 32 and am not sure if I should put a logline up on this board, but I could send it in a message or on chat.

Kris Keppeler

Hi Simon. I'm a local Seattle actor and voice actor. Just wrapped up a role for my first horror film. Working on a role in Indie short to be filmed in Everett next month.

Sam Inglese

Hello Simon. I am back in the acting field. Now in CO, I lived and worked in NYC and Chicago and just worked in 4 student films and hope to have some type of short of my works soon. I will be in NY for the first week of April if you happen to be visiting too. My Romantic Comedy is about a man who avoids commitment by dating only women recently dumped knowing they will always dump him no matter how great a time they have.

Best of luck with all of your endeavors.

Sounds like a fantastic slate of films you have coming up. Good luck with it all. Would love to be involved if the opportunity arises.

Doug Carter

Hello Simon, Looks like you're doing very well. Congrats. If you're ever in the market for an original comedy script, I'd love to send you one. I've written and produced four very successful award winning short comedies and now have two feature film scripts available.

Jermaine S Archibald

That sounds wonderful. I am a huge Sci-Fi buff, and that one has my attention. Please continue to do what you do, and make an impact on this industry. I have loads of instrumentals that may fit certain aspects of your projects. The new ones are not on the site yet, but I would be honored to assist where I can.

Skylar Silverlake

Looks like you've got a lot going on, Simon, and I have to say it's encouraging for me as an actor to see that such ambitious filmmaking is still very much alive and kicking out here in the ol' west (even outside of LA). Hope you have a great year!

Jennifer Koridze

How fantastic that you'll be filming in Iceland as well as in California. I have a very good friend from Reykjavik who has told me so much about her land that it is one of the places I very certainly would like to go to. They are very, very hospitable and hardy people. I'm sure that you will enjoy your time whilst filming, there.
