Submit Your Project

At Laughing Man on Fire Production, we look to finance powerful stories that have a strong message with a visual aesthetic.


We are looking for projects that tell resilient, epic stories that delve into issues, which questions our time, and also have a clear point of view and artistic vision. Through our general fund, we invest in 3-4 projects a year, and review projects year-round on a rolling basis. If you are working on a feature-length film and are looking for funding, we welcome you to submit a Letter of Inquiry.   


We will take a look at your project at whatever stage and help empower you by going through a development deal.


We are also looking projects that are already packaged.


In order to streamline and simplify the submissions process for our team and filmmakers applying, we have transitioned to a Letter of Inquiry-based process. 


If you are interested in applying to development program,  or seeking financing, please send a Letter of Inquiry via email to The LOI should fit on one page and be around 500 words. Please submit the LOI as an attachment in a .doc or .pdf format. The LOI should include:

  • Logline or short synopsis

  • Background on the film team: directors, producers and any key crew

  • Information about the stage of the project

  • Total budget amount and the financing raised so far (include a list of funding sources to date)

If all you have is a script, please submit your Logline, short synopsis and vision.

We will respond to your LOI in 2-4 weeks. If you are invited to submit a script  or screenplay, we will follow up with you directly with next steps.
