Do You Take Submissions?

Yes! While it might seem like our focus is on our licensed titles like American Psycho, Basic Instinct, and others, we love our original titles. We offer various deal structures and although we are unable to respond to all submissions, we take a look at every one! An important note is that our release slate is much smaller and curated than others. We take pride in each and every single one of our releases and how we market and solicit each.
