Compulsory Postal Requirements:

- Contact Details - One Page Bio - Logline and Synopsis - Script

The six first round projects that are in development with Headstrong are as follows:

My Linoleum Dream
A young girl thinks there must be more to life than the drained repetition of her mother's world.

The Devil Dared Me To
A raucous and bloody tragi-comedy about the rise of NZ's greatest living daredevil – Randy Campbell.

Midnight Golfer
