I did try -isp and not -i -s -p. Here is what happens when I try -isp:
dpkg-genchanges: unknown option `-isp'
Debian GNU/Linux dpkg-genchanges 1.7.2.

Usage: dpkg-genchanges [options ...]
Options: -b binary-only build - no source files
-B arch-specific - no source or arch-indep
-S source-only upload
-c<controlfile> get control info from this file
-l<changelogfile> get per-version info from this file
-f<fileslistfile> get .deb files list from this file
-v<sinceversion> include all changes later than version
-C<changesdescription> use change description from this file
-m<maintainer> override control's maintainer value
-e<maintainer> override changelog's maintainer value
-u<uploadfilesdir> directory with files (default is `..')
-si (default) src includes orig for debian-revision 0 or
-sa source includes orig src
-sd source is diff and .dsc only

-T<varlistfile> read variables here, not debian/substvars

-h print this message
As you can see, dpkg-genchanges does not understand the options.
