HOW TO FIND A PRODUCER
There are thousands of industry professionals (decision-makers) domestically (and internationally) looking to buy screenplays every day! The struggle, for most screenwriters, is knowing where to find them. We will discuss the surprising amount of resources available on the internet when searching for the right home for your screenplay.
SELLING YOUR SCRIPT WITHOUT AN AGENT/MANAGER
We will discuss ALL of the places you can go (sometimes for FREE) when searching for screenwriting opportunities (pitchfests, festivals, seminars, websites, staffing sites, etc.)
SENDING THE QUERY LETTER
We will discuss the do’s and don’ts when sending your query letter to producers. We will go over all formalities, what to include, and what to exclude.
OTHER SHORT TOPICS WE WILL DISCUSS:
- Protecting your Material.
- Negotiating a Contract.
- Writing a Beat Sheet and Treatment
NOTE: We will be bringing in a couple of working producers for this class. The producers, from a subjective view, will tell you precisely what turns them off and turns them on when receiving online pitches (and pitches in person). You won’t find this anywhere else!
EACH STUDENT WHO COMPLETES THIS CLASS WILL RECEIVE 1 FREE MONTH OF PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP WITH SCREENWRITINGSTAFFING.COM
